Inside Adobe Photoshop , you’ll often find Easter Eggs.  Not real eggs, but little jokes left over by the programmers.  Many have come and gone over the years, but there’s a new one tied to the shades of the user interface.  How dark are the elements around the screen?

Currently the shades look like this.


But you can change how they look…

But you can find the Easter Eggs this way


  • Photoshop > Preferences > Interface… (Mac)
  • Edit > Preferences > Interface… (Windows)

To make them look like Bread:


  • Shift + Opt + Cmd + click on a gray chip = Bread (Mac)
  • Shift + Alt + Ctrl + click on a gray chip = Bread (Windows)

or like Coffee…. just repeat the process and click again.
