Is there a way to change the background color of the Georeferencer in QGIS? What I mean is, can I somewhere change the color that does not belong to the image that is about to be georeferenced?

Let’s say I have a world file or I know the coordinates of the corners of my image, then, in the following example, I would have a hard time placing the points exactly as I cannot clearly differentiate between my image and the white background of the Georeferencer:

lower left corner
lower left corner

upper right corner
upper right corner

I am open to any suggestions, including Python.

    If a "quick-and-dirty" workaround is also of interest for you then you could just draw a polygon that has a slightly bigger extent as the raster image and use the clipper tool with this polygon as mask layer. you will end up with a black margin around your white image-background. – Thomas B Mar 2 '15 at 21:17
