Please change the background on Photos to black and get rid of the dazzling white!


iMore Question

Yes, this is a request for the software programmers at Apple. iPhotos had a professional-looking black background--white does not even look professional! There was a reason old photograph albums, where you pasted photographs with translucent corners, were always in black, as they show photographs to advantage, whether they are in black, sepia, or color. Disappointingly, a number of features have been lost, disappointingly, including adjusting colors and shades, merged groups of photographs, not to mention descriptions. I can do without the identification of faces, but please include the option at least of having a black background and bring back the previously edited iPhoto features with their descriptions. Years of editing work on a database of 10,000+ photos have been lost with this so-called improved update.
