Customize the background color in Lightroom

Lightroom is full of things we can customize and lots of little hidden tricks. Today I want to cover a quick tip that can be helpful on your eyes. When you are working in the Develop module you can customize the background color of the center section to be either white, light gray, medium gray, dark gray or black. You can also set a pinstripe texture to the background as well. To set this up all you need to do is right click on the background area (or Control-click Mac) to open up this menu.
