Brighter-Screen

1.6

Make your screen even brighter.

Overview

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 2 times faster than apple's buttons.)
Tip 2. Sleep Display
  • Display sleeps below 10% brightness level to save energy automatically.

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

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

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.
