White Icon visibility in Media Library

Reported by: abtop's profile ABTOP Owned by: wonderboymusic's profile wonderboymusic

Problem: If a graphic file is white in color AND has transparent background, as often a case with PNG and GIF files, there is no chance for it to be visible as icon in Media Library. It will always be white on white (like a polar bear in Arctica)

Possible solution: assign off-white color to like this

.media-icon {background-color: #ccc;}

or introduce


so that icons are visible at least on mouseover.

This doesn't seem very common, but can you provide a screenshot of the before and non-hover after?

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

Have seen this with white logos. Would prefer a solution that is not only on hover, since that's not accessible and requires action for basic scanning.

Asked UI group to brainstorm on solutions for this.

  • Keywords changed from Media Library, icon, background to Media Library icon, background

This particular issue no longer exists with the 3.5+ media manager. The only problem is that the issue has simply moved from a white background to a #eee background.

In the media modal, all attachments get the slightest amount of inset box-shadow applied to the image's wrapper.

Could do something like attachment:15860.diff.

In 28842:

Apply a subtle semi-transparent border to images in the media list table to avoid the "white on white (like a polar bear in Antarctica)" problem.

Props ericlewis.
