P: Option to remove all drop shadow and selected highlight clutter from comparison and survey modes

It would be very useful to be able to turn off annoying dropshadows and the selected image highlight box in survey mode and comparison modes.


  1. When in survey mode with a white or light background, why do I need to have "your" dropshadows showing and distracting "my surveying" of images. They are NOT part of my imagery and this is distracting when sequencing and editing series of images.
  2. When in these modes using a dark background, you give us an annoying white bounding box for the selected image; again, its NOT part of my image, it is a distraction.

    Add the option to turn these off. Either in preferences or within the interface.
    For the bounding box highlight: Maybe just by clicking on blank space between images so that nothing is selected and no images get this effect until selected (survey mode).

    Because, when comparing 2 (or more) images side by side (or in survey) for colour correction,. grading, or whatever, having design elements getting in the way, distracting the eye is NOT a clever idea. It's just screen clutter detracting from the editing and sequencing process.
