Its probably 10 times faster to find things by color than by text - just like its much easier to find the only ripe apple on the tree by color, than by reading a label on each apple. :nod:
We have color vision because the hunter who saw no colors had less chance of survival by finding his pray (or apple) - anyone talking about his pictures?
I think Isac Newton would have agreed, but of course we cant all be a genius.:tape:

Thanks from Not Optimistic But Hoping.

That's because apples on trees have not had the labels put on yet !!

NOBH,

Mainly, having lots of colours surrounding your image will tend to throw off your colour sense, and your prints will end up with one cast or another.

Also, colourful user interfaces tend to be highly fatiguing in applications, such as LR, that people spend many continuous hours in. Bright, colourful UIs work for quickie utilities that you don't run often, and haven't had the chance to learn where on the screen the widgets reside.

So you have a couple of interface design rules working against you. Your lack of optimism seems justified.

When judging colour in your images you need to have a neutral background.
