Enables replacing the default background color of WordPress media files (#f8f8f8) with any other color using a color picker under [Settings > Media]. Particularly useful when working with white media files on transparent background.
I decided to wrap this fix as a plugin after building a few websites where I used white shapes on transparent backgrounds, since it was nearly impossible to tell one image from another. Since I took the time to write it, I thought: why not share it?
