DarkAdapted is useful for astronomers and others who need to preserve dark adaptation while using the computer. DarkAdapted controls the three gamma channels (red, green, and blue) independently. It also provides full control over preset gamma settings, fade rate, and gamma toggle keys.
DarkAdapted is being used by astronomers, planetarium operators, graphics professionals, medical professionals, airline pilots, air traffic controllers, and others worldwide to provide flexible, dynamic control over their monitor's screen color response. People with monitors that appear too bright (such as owners of certain iMac models), also find DarkAdapted to be valuable. Users may define an unlimited number of gamma presets, and invoke them via global hotkeys, by menu selection, or by typing the first few letters of a preset's name.
