    F.lux: software to make your life better

    This is an interesting program I found one day whilst searching the internets for something else,

    it adjusts the shader/drawing filter of your monitor to be easier on your eyes.

    eg. at 9:00 PM, your house is dark, and you turn on your computer screen.
    Regularly, you would be blinded, but with f.lux, the shader/filter color is a light orange tinge, which makes staring at the computer screen easier on your eyes.

    F.lux: software to make your life better

    Before someone screams advertisement and attempts to report me for doing so, i'll post a screenshot of the actual website.



    dere.

    install, set your area/lighting style, poof, done.

    Just let it do its work.

    Here's virus scans for those who are still skeptical.

    The actual setup file,

    And the website.

    Not very effective in the dark of night.

    The brightness of your computer screen is still overwhelming.

    Can I see some before and after pics? I really dont see the point in downloading an application for lowering the brightness when you could just wait 45 seconds for your eyes to adjust.

    Umm, gimme a sec.

    When I screenshot it while flux is enabled, and then disable flux, it stays the same, so I'm assuming that it does stuff with your monitor, not your actual programs and etc.

    So here's a screenshot I found on the internets.



    @Heartview

    And it doesn't lower brightness.

    If you have an android device, it's basically like the screen filter app in the market.

    That's because

    1) You can't tell from a photo.
    2) The photo was taken in the daytime
    3) You have to try it to really get a feeling of it.

    Frankly my monitor settings are tweaked to not be extremley bright, as its usually dark in here anyways. Plus my eyes can get used to it quick enough that I dont really mind.
