The course covers indispensable techniques such as importing, processing, and organizing images in the Library, correcting and adjusting images in the Develop module, and creating slideshows, web galleries, and print picture packages. In addition to exploring all of Lightroom 3's capabilities, this course is rich with creative tips and expert advice on photographic workflow. Exercise files accompany the course.
Currently I'm viewing this image in the Loupe View mode inside of the Library module. Here we can see that we have a medium dark gray in the background. Now we can change this background a couple of different ways. One technique that we can use is to right-click in this area. As you're starting to pick up, Lightroom really likes it when you right-click, so I'll go ahead and do that and here you can see that I can change my background to white or all the way up to black. So again whatever color you choose here is your own preference.
Let's go back to our Medium Gray, and then let's take a look at one more option. If you right-click or Ctrl+Click you can also add a texture to the background as well. Well as I mentioned, I'm currently in the Library module. What about the Develop module? When I navigate to the Develop module, we're going to see those same settings here. So if I make a change in this dialog, I'll go ahead and choose None. and then head back to the Library module. that background change will carry over. The last way that you can make this particular change is by navigating to your interface preferences.
You can do so by navigating to the Lightroom pulldown menu and then by choosing Preferences. On a PC, navigate to the Edit pulldown menu and choose Preferences. In Preferences, you want to make sure to click on the Interface tab and what we're going to do here is we are going to change our background color and here you can see it a little bit more easily, because you can preview this without having to exit out of the menu and the same texture options as we've seen before.
If you are using a second monitor, you can also change the background attributes for that second monitor here as well.
