I thought about it and I created this mock-up:

The idea is to use a simple radial gradient from the upper left corner 
to the lower right. (This should be switched for RTL languages.)

The gradient colours are calculated from the "selected forecolour" from
the GTK theme. This way it fits nicely into every desktop environment.

In the center of the area I've added a simpel text "Drop Images here to
open them." (Perhaps a native speaker should change the wording.)
This is NOT the "Tip of the Day" and should NOT change.
The colour of the text is the brightest colour from the gradient. This
will give us a nice contrast and it will fit to the theme colours.

I don't get you slider idea. But if you think about a small timewaster
what do you think about adding a colour slider to my mock-up?
