About Shades

Shades is a FREE utility for controlling the brightness of your screen. It runs in the background providing always-available fine-grained control over the brightness of your display via a slick Mac-like interface

Though all modern Apple laptops have brightness controls for dimming the screen in dark conditions, there are several situations where the built in controls are unsatisfactory. The granularity of control is rather coarse, and the minimum brightness setting still quite bright when working in pitch darkness.

Perhaps you need to use your machine in a darkroom, or like to work late at night without disturbing your partner who sleeps beside you?

Perhaps you need to dim the screen on a desktop machine, and the display you are using offers no such facility?

If this is the case for you, then try Shades.

Note: Unlike other solutions, Shades doesn't change your display settings, and won't screw up your monitor's colour profile.

Shades is available in three versions: PPC only, Intel only or Universal.

System Requirements

Shades requires a Macintoshâ„¢ computer running Mac OS X 10.3 or later. Both PPC and Intel Macs are supported.
