When using light icons for dark theme which are usually dominantly white/light-gray, the image preview is useless.
Comment 1 Jason DeBoever 2017-07-18 16:29:42 UTC
This is actually worse now on Light Theme as the preview of white objects is completely invisible, Black objects on dark theme is nearly as bad.  This is a bug not an enhancement, so I've changed it appropriately.  

At a minimum I suggest making the preview background a neutral grey where white and black objects will both show (middlingly grey objects are less common than white or black by far)
