    How to expand canvas using "canvas size"?


      In PS cc for photographers, when expanding canvas size with "canvas size," why can't I set the background color (it's grayed out)?

          Most layers types support transparency.  Canvas Added to layers that support transparency will be transparent. Photoshop's Background Layer does not support transparency  Changing Its Canvas size will add or remove pixels.  Added  canvas color can be set in Photoshop's Canvas size Dialog.  That will only effect a background layer. Document are not required to have a background layer. If a document has no background no actual Pixel will be added only the canvas size will change.
