Description of Shades 1.2b3

EditByBSEditor: Shades is a FREE utility for controlling the Brightness of your screen. It runs in the background providing always-available fine-grained control over the brightness of your display via a slick Mac-like interface

Though all modern Apple laptops have brightness controls for dimming the screen in dark conditions, there are several situations where the built in controls are unsatisfactory. The granularity of control is rather coarse, and the minimum brightness setting still quite bright when working in pitch darkness.

Perhaps you need to use your machine in a darkroom, or like to work late at night without disturbing your partner who sleeps beside you?

Perhaps you need to dim the screen on a desktop machine, and the display you are using offers no such facility?

If this is the case for you, then try Shades.

Note: Shades may interfere with colour calibration software, and should not be used if colour accuracy is critical.

New in v1.2b3

* [fix] Updated Shades to work correctly on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.
* [chg] Shades no longer supports Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. Users running Tiger should stick with version 1.2b2.
* [fix] It is now possible to click and drag the menu bar slider Again.
* [imp] The Shades System Preferences panel can now run in 64bit mode, so it's not necessary to Relaunch System Preferences in 32bit mode to use it.

Requirements: Mac OS X 10.5 or higher
Platform: PowerPC / Intel
