contrast setting for imac 20 inch aluminum computer

  • Status: Open


Shades has helped me immensely with calibrating my monitor. I feel Apple has somewhat ripped me off with this machine. Your software has given my some of the control you would expect form a computer of this price range. If you could somehow incorporate a contrast control for shades you would make allot of people happy. Sincerely yours Michael Micallef.

Thanks for the great app! I totally agree with the idea to add the possibility to change the contrast. I like to use shades with my external monitor to not manually change the brightness in the monitor menu (takes time). When I use full brightness (at day) and "shade down" the system for the use at night, the contrast is much to low and e.g. shadows of the system become too big.

I experimented with the contrast, it seems not to be the problem. If I dim the monitor, the picture looks more colorful / natural. If I use Shades, it becomes more grey. Is there a way to get a darker but as colorful image? Thanks for the app anyway! :)

yes , a way to make typeface blacker. Seems iPhone has changed the contrast of big machines. Apple iMac ,3 year old one's calibration is horrendous. Must blowup the page a lot to see stuff. True I have psudo-exfoliation glaucoma but a good contrast adjuster could help.
