What’s new in Black Light 2
Black Light 2 allows a global hotkey to be set to toggle effect activation. It lets you hide the dock icon and replace it with a menu icon (on OS X 10.7 and later). You can also now toggle the effect individually for each screen.
And the 2.2 version added a vividness slider so you can make the screen colored only slightly.
Black Light 2.3 (29 June 2016)
- It is now possible to save the visual effect settings in a file and restore it later.
Black Light 2.2 (2 December 2015)
- Added vividness slider for the color filter effect. Now you can make the screen slightly yellowish, rosy, etc. by controlling the white point.
Black Light 2.1 (14 Octobrer 2014)
Can now toggle the effect individually for each screen.
If you have more than one screen, can now toggle each screen from the menu behind the the dock menu or from the menu bar.
Fixed an issue occurring after a restart or a login that would make Black Light inoperative until it was quit and reopened.
Black Light 2.0.1 (28 April 2014)
Fixed an issue where some preferences would not work in the English version of the app.
Restoring the app after a restart should now work properly.
Black Light 2.0 (18 December 2013)
Can now set a global hotkey to toggle effect activation.
With OS X 10.7 or later, can now hide dock icon and have a Black Light menu item on the right side of the menu bar.
Fixed an issue where the color filter effect would not work properly on OS X 10.9 for some configurations.
Black Light 1.8.1 (September 18, 2013)
- Fixed a problem that would prevent Black Light from launching on OS X 10.6 and 10.7.
Black Light 1.8 (1 September 2013)
Sandboxed and now availabile on the Mac App Store.
There is a new option to disable Black Light’s effect when the screensaver is visible. This will work with most screensavers, but not with Black Light Screen Saver, ironically.
The Hide Stripes effect is now called Overexposure. I should have done this earlier, it’s been a long time since OS X harbored striped backgrounds.
Black Light 1.7.1 (6 June 2010)
- Can now choose to apply effect to only one screen using preferences.
Black Light 1.7 (5 October 2009)
Added HDTV luminance adjustment.
Added continous effect application for when the gamma curve is changed by an external source (such as another application or a display waking from sleep).
The screen saver is now working correctly with Mac OS 10.6 on a 64-bit Intel processor.
Black Light 1.6 (6 March 2006)
Improved the inversion algorithm to respect the gamma correction curve in use on the screen. Previously the gamma correction was inverted when the colors were, the correction was applied in reverse and could make gray levels appear coloured.
Added the color filter effect to the Black Light application.
Black Light and its screen saver are universal binaries that can work nativly on Mac OS X for the Intel processor.
