UI: Colors for selection (shades of grey)

Sep 20, 2012 2:08 AM

Tags: #selection #gray #grey #ui #shades

Hi !

 

Lightroom has three different levels of selection (not selected, selected, most selected) and represents this state with  different colors of grey. This looks like a very poor choice to me, because they are very difficult to differenciate.

For instance, it's very difficult to identify the beginning or the end of a long selection when scrolling, because everything looks just grey.

 

Is there a way to change the colors for the 3 states ?

    Hi!

     

    I don't think there is a way to change that behavior of lightroom in the settings but this is the place to post your suggestion:

    Maybe somebody already posted a similar request and you can add your vote.

     

    BTW: I like your the idea to have a better indication which one is selected and "most" seletced!

    No issue, I've swapped it to an idea.

    Even though it bugs you I would consider it a feature, not a bug. So therefore I would post it as an idea for a future improvement of the UI.

    You're right.

    I've seen a couple "Problems" classified by Adobe as "Not a problem" if they're not bugs. Anyways, let's stop here

    We'll see...

    I don't know what's the difference between ideas and issues on the feedback site. If issues get more priority than ideas, I would definitely like to keep it an issue.

     

    As a rule of thumb, if it's currently working as the designers intended, it's usually classed as a feature request.  If it was supposed to work a certain way and it's not, it's a bug.  I wouldn't worry too much about the semantics though.  I switched it so it was tracked in a way that gave it the best chance possible, that's all.
