Hi Gregg,

Sorry, I didn’t realise that was a trigger phrase!

I meant in the same sense as you test text contrast. There the thing you are testing is the text on a background.

Here you are identifying a graphic, or element within a graphic against its background and/or adjacent graphics.

I hadn’t used the term in the SC or description, just in an email!
