Gradient Shading

  • Status: Open


A lot of iMacs come with the bottom part of the screen brighter than the upper part, it would be cool if Shades could correct this hardware problem with an user calibrated gradient that is darker at the bottom of the screen.

Thank you reading and for your amazing program, you have the eternal gratitude of my eyes :)

hell yeah, all the imacs are problematic. i think the 24" is the easiest to solve, left side is brighter than the right.

Yes - I would use this feature - the uneven brightness of the iMac 24 screen is very annoying. Just let us overlay a picture file.

Here Here .... gradient is not that huge, but some correcting software would be graet.

yes please,

let us choose the different shadows in different places,

my screen is yellow in the botton, so i don't need overall shadow, i need separated shadow for each zone.

gradient to compensate monitor defects.
it would be great

this issue is two years old,
it would be nice to get some feedback from the developers

otherwise looks like we are waiting forever
