Software Screen Filter

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I've found that sometimes when reading computer screens in a dark room, my eyes begin to hurt. On my Droid X, I found an app called "Screen Filter" which dims the screen by whatever percentage you set. Does anything like this exist for my computer? I'm running Windows 7.

Thanks alot!

There is one I saw on lifehacker about a year ago. I'd try searching around there.

Yeah it's called f.lux I think. It changes the palette of the screen based on the time of day. And you an temporarily turn it off if you want to do anything color sensitive

There is always that nifty feature on the monitor called brightness. I hear you can do a lot with that thing, haven't really tried it out though. It's buried somewhere deeps in the menus, but you have to use buttons to navigate through it.

Changing your brightness doesn't give the same effect imo. I've tried and would do this if it gave me the best result. By simply change the color to the light it reduces the strain on the eyes for me, without making it so dark that I won't see pictures and videos with already low brightness. So there's some difference i'm sure between changing the color/brightness.

BTW, f.lux works very good thumb.gif thanks for the tip!
