Quick Tip: Change Interface Color in Photoshop

With the recent release of Photoshop CS6, creative professionals now have more freedom than ever before to customize the colors and themes of their editing environment. This includes being able to switch to darker hues when a grey wallpaper just isn’t doing it.

Taking a black background can add an extra bit of sparkle to any image. Plus, with CS6 at your disposal, you don’t have to worry about complicated or lengthy processes, Photoshop makes it simple and painless.

Step 1 > Settings

To change the setting go to Edit > Preferences > Interface.

Step 2 > Pick your color

Color Theme will change the color of tabs around the background. Change the Standard Screen Mode to light, medium, dark grey, or black color. If you are still not happy, use the custom option to pick the color you like from the color palette. Simple enough, right?
