LR015 - Grid Cell Shading

Canvas Color and Shading

The grid itself (in the central section) contains a wealth of information (depending on your customization preferences).  Each image is in a rectangular cell.  The canvas (background) of each cell is used to optionally show selected metadata about each photo.  The color or shade of gray of the canvas areas are used to convey additional information.

Full Color Canvas (has color label)
A full color canvas denotes a non selected image that has a color label regardless of its participation in a stack.  If the image is the active image (first one below), there is a thin colored line between the image and the background canvas denoting the color label.

Gray Canvas Shading Meaning

Grid Canvas Shading 2Grid Canvas Shading 2

1) White - active
The image with a white canvas is the “Active” image.  Another way to think of this is that it is the “Most Selected” image.  Commands or actions that are designed to operate on only one image are applied to this one only

2) Very Light Gray - also selected
Images with a very light gray canvas are also selected.  Commands or Actions that operate on multiple images at once will be applied to all selected images (including the active image).

3) Medium Light Gray - not selected, mouse over, not expanded stack
Images that are not selected and are not part of an expanded stack but have the mouse pointer over the image.  In other words they may be the top image of a collapsed stack or not in a stack at all but either way are not selected and have the mouse pointer over the image.

4) Medium Gray - not selected, no mouse over, not expanded stack
Same as Medium Light Gray but without the mouse pointer over the image. Very subtly darker than with mouse over.  Hardly noticeable.

5-6) Dark Gray - not selected, expanded stack
A dark Gray canvas denotes a non selected image that also happens to be part of an expanded stack.  These images get very subtly lighter canvas when the mouse pointer is over the image (not shown).
