Let’s face it: today’s laptop screens are just too bright ! … no really, they are when working under low light conditions.
Since I mainly work in very dark environments constantly blinded by my laptop, I asked my good friend Sebastian to code a simple dimming application for me. He did, and it came out quite nice, simple and clean.
… so here we offer it to You - for free:
Once DimDesk.app is running and the screen is dim You may use „command-h“ to hide it and temporarily disable the dimming. Use „command-tab“ to bring it back.
Also use the preferences HUD to choose the desired darkness and optional color of Your choice… nice !
ThisApp is actually quite old… but still used a lot - without issues. It has even proven to be more elegant and lightweight than other solutions that have come out over the years. Also, DimDesk handles multi-monitor setups without problems as they seam to be common among „competitors“.
so: still… nice !
