Background Colour Option?

Hi, this topic might have been dealt with before, can't keep up with the forums but perhaps in the future EPZ 2 might consider the option of offering a background colour, it can make an image sometimes, for example dark grey always looks excellent with black and white shots, another site I look at, Photoforum.ru has this option and it really is impressive when you see your image with a background colour. Although alot of people upload very big images so perhaps it wouldn't work here, just a thought, thanks.

It really works, can make or break an image sometimes, have a look at www.photoforum.ru , you can see how effective it is, but I am sure its quite an extra expense to set it up, duuno.

Not at all. Check out this site here and play with the icons at the top.

There's a magnifying loupe, a black-and-white button, a full-screen view button, and a "pointer" so that in your comment you can point to something directly in the photo. There is also a BG colour selector on the top left. All bloody useful, and all that was needed to implement them is some coding knowledge, no expense.
If it was possible, I'd really like a choice of background colour option, I think much of my work looks a lot better against a dark colour. Could it be considered please, Pete? Smile

Yep, i too think it might be quite useful. Currently, i have to sometimes get around it by putting a color border around my image (thus the image may end up looking a lot smaller in the thumbnail).
