Image Backdrop-need pure white tone
Image backdrop needs to be a user defined tone as previous versions allowed. Pure white is definitely needed to double check images that are required to have a 255 255 255 background. Had to revert to 2018 version.
This feature is now released as part of Bridge v10.0.
Please upgrade Bridge to v10.0 to see the change.
At the bottom of the Content pane, you should uncheck “Show Tiles”. After Tiles are removed, go to Edit→Preferences→Interface→Image Backdrop to change the slider to pure white.
Senior Product Manager,
I agree this is not yet resolved.
The settings mentioned above (uncheck tiles, set backdrop) only affects the interface AROUND the thumbnails and previews, but the backround INSIDE the preview -- where the transparent pixels are -- continues to display as an uncontrollable solid black.
Attached: Comparing the transparent portions preview in Bridge and Photoshop. The Black in Bridge is what I'm hoping to find a control for.
The preview can be displayed white in the preferences, but the content list cannot be white.
This makes it difficult to check the details in the list.
Displaying a preview is important for checking many images at once.
Also, if you change it in the preferences, the border of the artboard size is not visible even in the preview.
Therefore, it is necessary to display it in artboard size.
Some improvements in version 10 are not complete.
Also, in the case of an ai file, Illustrator itself often makes the background white, making it difficult to check.
Therefore, immediate improvement is needed.
Thanks for bringing back view without tiles!

Same but for a different reason in one of my main workflows:
I use dark UI (avoiding eye strain) but do a ton of work with transparent PNG tech drawing files. With a dark or transparency grid background, I can't distinguish things at a glance, but since the latest "update" the only way I can get solid white(ish) behind the graphics is with a glaring light UI. Please revert to where I had the choice.
This is the most important thing in my image editing workflow, and I edit over 4000 images per day (my company). We all use Adobe products, but I can't update my employees software to the lates because Bridge will be unusable for us. We need a pure white backdrop on a list of image thumbnails to check the correct background without any dirt or unwanted shadows touching the edge of image. With current "Bright" color theme we will make a lot of mistakes and will loose client and will get a lot of financial losses. And it's because you've probably got new designers that never used Bridge in real working process.
This is very important!!! Please update the option to be able to set the backdrop any color user needs and get rid of the darker frame around thumbnal!!!
I have the same problem. I had to install the old 2018 version to have a white background in the thumbnails.

I agree completely. I use an 18% gray interface for color correction between Bridge, ACR, and PS. Only PS now allows for a custom color interface. PLEASE bring back the custom color background for Bridge and ACR. I too had to revert to Bridge 2018.
