Hello is there a way to change the interface so that it isn't just 4 options of greyscale? Maybe have theme options like eggs, cartoons like puppycat, or customize your own space with your own art type of thing? Like a *Create your own* and you draw in the space you're customizing LOL

In all seriousness though - the reason the interfaces are universally shades of varying grays intentionally for two reasons:

1. The colors are neutral - the human eye adjusts perceptive color when influenced by surrounding colors.

Example - the center box is the same color but appears different due to the surrounding color:

2. The second reason is accessibility. Having the interface neutral and contrasted allows users with visual impairments to use the software without impediment.

 

So while it may be "fun" to allow users to have any color for an interface, or cartoon/puppycat presets the reality is it would cause issues when trying to adjust colors in your image and complaints from users. There are enough issues with users not understanding color profiles, etc. as it is.

Actually this may be an even better illustration than Dave's cube. Yes, this shows precisely why I use the light interface instead of the default dark. It also shows why Lightroom should have a light UI option, but still doesn't.

Your four screenshots are all Photoshop, so I have moved your post from Using the Community (for questions about the forums) for you.

The gray background and UI elements have a reason – human visual perception is notoriously »treacherous«. 

Color editing images against a colorful background will affect the perception and when the image is viewed under different conditions this can become problematic. 

 

Anyway, @jazz-y has provided a Script for (some) Photoshop UI customization.

Nice @Ged_Traynor , but all the text and icons should be bright magenta, to make it easier to read... 😉

 

Seriously, c.p. is right. There is a reason for the neutral interface. There was a huge commotion a while ago, over the blue "share"-button. People came up with all kinds of hacks to kill it. Finally Adobe had to add an option to mute it.

The light pink and purple on that is so cute 

By @Megan29494086poh4

 

Cute and dreadful all at once, Megan. Most folks who use Photoshop make their screen and interface a neutral gray, and many also paint their walls a neutral gray and control the room lighting so nothing, absolutely nothing, interferes with the color corrections they are making in Photoshop.

 

Thank you for the entertainment value of your post!

That's right, Jane. Actually, I can't even look at the image anymore, it interferes with my highly tuned color vision. So I'm covering the whole monitor with a gray cloth, while I lie on the floor with a bag of ice cubes over my eyes. Then I use pure mind-power to manifest the image as I want it.

 

People don't realize how hard it is to be a true artist...pure spirituality, no dirty physics.

 

Here's one of my recent works, a subtle and minimalist still life titled "  ". I considered giving it some punch, but decided against it. Less is more:

still_life.png

 

Lately I've also started to use a special filter on my camera. It wasn't cheap, but it blocks not only visible light, but all electromagnetic radiation whatsoever. Nothing gets past it. It's exquisite.

I can see why the colour change would be uncomfortable but like my suggestion was basically adding an option to change the outer parrs for people who want to draw stuff with the pink or purple instead of the dark or light modes on the tool bars heheh the change wouldn't be applied to everyone just an added selection in settings

On a serious note this image from here : https://www.moillusions.com/color-tile-illusion-new-aspect/ shows how a neutral background is important in colour adjustment. The two circled centre squares are the same colour - measure them in Photoshop if you don't believe your eyes.

Yes, that's a strikingly effective illustration. Color is relative to the colors around it.

There is one thing you can do in Photoshop, Megan, to get your bright colors that will interfere with the work you are doing. Right-click in the area outside of the image and choose "Select Custom Color" from the shortcut menu.
