Shades 1.1.4r2 reviewDownload
Shades is a FREE utility for controlling the brightness of your screen.
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 course, 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, you should try Shades.
Shades now supports hot keys for controlling brightness and activating menu control.
Performance issues introduced in version 1.1.3 have now been rectified.
Scrollwheel sensitivity has been increased by a factor of 10.
