Threshold for changes

The diffThreshold parameter allows you to fine tune the threshold for visual change between snapshots before they’re flagged by Chromatic. Sometimes you need assurance to the sub-pixel and other times you want to skip visual noise generated by non-deterministic rendering such as anti-aliasing.

Setting the threshold

Chromatic’s default threshold is .063 which balances high visual accuracy with low false positives (for example, from artifacts like anti-aliasing). 0 is the most accurate. 1 is the least accurate.

Configure the diffThreshold with a Storybook parameter like so:

import MyComponent from './MyComponent';

export default {
  component: MyComponent,

export const StoryName = () => <MyComponent />;

StoryName.story = {
  parameters: {
    chromatic: { diffThreshold: 0.2 },
