P: Ability to change the interface background color

I would love to be able to change the background color of the Lightroom Mobile interface while I'm editing an image. Working freelance and traveling a lot and commuting, I use my iPad a lot to make adjustments so I can save time. Several of my jobs have required me to have backgrounds close to white but without being white (specifically e-commerce photos). Even though I'm using the clipping mask to see my white and black points, it would still be nice to have a white background during those projects to make sure I don't make my models look like they're floating in the middle of nowhere. It would be one more step I could get done before even getting to the studio! Thanks!

The fact that this low hanging fruit has not been implemented yet makes me think the price for the subscription is not worth it anyway. One would expect continuous improvement from software with a subscription model.

I can't comprehend how this absolutely trivial feature has not made it to the front of the developers backlog by now.

I'm often editing images on the go using Lightroom Mobile for posting to social sites. Most of these use a white viewing background, making my images appear visually darker on final display. Would be great to have the option of a light color scheme when editing as otherwise it's just pure guesswork.

 

ps - a black background seems default on all photo apps when editing, seems an odd choice as I think the most common viewing environment for final use is a white background.

What makes this even more annoying is the the Creative Cloud app is in a nice light mode.

Being able to view and edit your photos on a white or gray coloured background is essential. This is a simple feature that is present in Lightroom classic. My pictures always are too dark when only being able to edit on a black background. Currently I have to either export the images to view on a light background, or wait until I can view them on Lightroom classic on my desktop. Photoshop on iOS can be switched between dark and light modes, this isn't an ideal solution but is better than what Lightroom is currently offering.

I would like my ipad app to have white in the background.  It is a feature in the web based version but not the ipad version of Lightroom.

This was 7 years ago and Adobe still does not care.

I think an important addition here is that now that Lightroom supports HDR editing, it's incredibly useful to use a white background to have a baseline for "SDR white." Adobe's own blog post introducing HDR editing in Lightroom suggests this as a technique for judging if you've gotten too far into the HDR realm ("white surround"). Given that recent iPhones, at least, pretty much all have screens capable of multiple HDR stops, it seems silly to not have this as a mobile option. The mobile app supports HDR, and Adobe says it is useful to use a white background to edit HDR. So...

 

Personally, the most HDR-capable device I have is my phone (MacBook Pro M1 can go to 1 stop; iPhone 12 can go to 3). If I'm going deep into HDR, I need to move to my phone to check/edit things for at least part of the time.

I think I have found a trick, that solves this problem, at leas for me. When a picture is open, tapping on the share icon, there is an option 'Add border and share'. This will show you a preview before actually sharing, where you can adjust the color and thickness of the border. And voila, you can see your image with a white background, of course, by these extra steps. I hope this helps some of you.
