If you upload your own photo to Google Classroom it darkens. No one likes this. It is not your imagination, you are not doing something wrong.

THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT THIS!

Before and After Google Classroom header Banner

Apparently it has something to do with the rules for material design. What I really want is to choose my own accent color that goes with my class. After I upload the image I would like to be presented with a palette of colors to choose from. I feel confident all of us would like this. Please send feedback and send it often 🙂

wouldn't it be nice to have a paint can to set the theme color?
