Brighter-Screen improves brightness control more than Apple's way. Traditionally, the iMac product line have a dark gamma value less than Windows or TV. This application can adjust brightness easily dim or bright.

I recommend you use Brighter-Screen Lite if you don't have a big-screen Mac and don't use your Mac for watching movie often.

  1. Maximum brightness 105%
  2. Minimum brightness 10%
  3. Movie mode (same as photoshop shadow effect and useful when you watching high quality movie on fullscreen)
Tip 1. Default short keys
  • More F2 (or Fn + F2)
  • Less F1 (or Fn + F1)(These are more...

What’s the point of this one? I don't find it is so much practical.

Traditionally the gamma is darker on Windows than Mac. Not the other way around.

Also, as of Snow Leopard, Apple now makes Mac gamma match Windows (Gamma 2.2). There should be no difference now.

I wonder what increasing the screen brightness above Apple's limits will do too the screen life or the monitor's warranty. Given the price of an Apple Monitor I would not be willing to take a chance on using this app unless I knew the answers for sure.

The app description talks about gamma. If accurate, then it wouldn't be driving the backlight above max brightness. What it would be doing is applying a brighter gamma value in the LUT or applying a different monitor profile. Neither should harm the monitor.

Of course, if the developer is using wrong terminology and actually attempting to overdrive the backlight somehow, that might cause a hardware problem.
