The white-and-gray grid behind pictures

Recommended Posts

So, I feel really stupid for not knowing the official name for this grid, and I'm sure there are lots of threads about this already, but since I couldn't remember the name I just had to make my own thread.

My question is: How do I change the colors of the default white-and-gray grid behind pictures (the one shown when you have a transparent or blank area in your picture)? I'm asking this because I'm trying to design some glass-like icons (that use a transparent white on the edges), and due to the white areas on the grid behind the picture it's very hard to see the separate pixels. Is there possibly any way to change these colors to, say, black or something, so I can see what I'm editing better?

As I said before, I'm sure there's some easy solution to this that's been posted many times here, but I couldn't find any other thread. Thanks for the help in advance!
