The program to introduce today was introduced last time 'Input directors that share the mouse, keyboard, and clipboard on multiple computers' Input Director'
f.lux is a program that reduces the blue light from the monitor. However, the program is a different kind of program that is popular on the street. First, as soon as the program is installed, the user inputs the location information through a program such as Google Map. By this, the user can grasp the country and current latitude and longitude and adjust the brightness of the screen by considering the time zone of the actual user and the intensity of the sun light. (But GKKmon does not use this automatic adjustment function because it does not use it).
Because of this, during daylight hours when sunlight is bright, it darkens the screen and resolves the invisible or heterogeneous problems and makes the eyes warmer in the warmer and darker colors in the evening when it is darker than usual. It is designed to reduce eye fatigue and reduce sleep pattern interference.)
In addition to this automatic adjustment function, you can switch off and on by pressing the 'Alt + End' key when performing color grading tasks, or even the unique modes for use in a completely dark room such as 'Darkroom mode' It is a simple and lightweight software, but its function is a very amiable guy. That's why it's so useful software that you have to keep using it once, and I've been using it for almost 10 years, so I'll give you a brief introduction to this program.
How to download and install
It is very simple to download and install because it is an updated program. first f.lux official download page And click 'Download f.lux (v4.84)' in the blue box in the middle. Then run 'flux-setup.exe' file downloaded. The subsequent installation process is simple enough to explain.
f.lux Initial settings after installation
After installation, it asks for the first location. If you want to keep the same brightness regardless of time zone like GKKmon, or if you want to use it according to your situation, do you want to turn on location service? When you ask "No," just press the button.
If you want to use automatic location control
Now the basic installation and settings are over and you can use them as they are, but you can further customize them to suit your tastes through settings and settings. All f.lux menus are executed by pressing the three-line burger button on the upper left of the flux window.
f.lux specific usage & settings
Brightness setting by time zone
Adjust day and night colors together
When you set the region, the brightness of the screen is adjusted by dividing into three times in daytime, sunset, and bedtime. In these three times, the intensity of light can be directly customized.
Options and smart lighting
Options and Smart Lighting
The second menu, 'Options and Smart Lighting ...', allows you to set the f.lux options and shortcuts. I will explain all the key menus without explaining everything one by one because everything works as explained without precautions.
The function 'Use these hotkeys to control f.lux' is checked by default, which determines whether f.lux uses shortcut keys.
The next important feature is the 'How quickly should transitions happen?' Function, f.lux basically changes very slowly to give you time to adjust to the eye when the color changes, you can change this speed. The steps are Slow, Medium, and Very Fast. GKKmon uses 'Very Fast' because of his character.
f.lux Brightness and color control
Change current color
It is color and brightness control which can be performed by the function of 'Alt + Shift + PgUp & PgDn'. You can adjust the color from 1200K to 6500K, and you will feel that you have a name for each color.
f.lux's screen effects and special colors
Effects and extra colors
In addition to simple brightness control, f.lux's unique screen effects and unique colors can be specified.
These three effects are effective, and you can change them to specific colors below that of f.lux. Therefore, it can be used with effects, each of which means colors as they are called.
Disable mode to stop f.lux for a while
Finally, you can disable the function for a moment. This is usually done using the 'Alt + End' key, which defaults to returning after an hour.
And although not on this menu, you can change the color with the drop-down menus in the upper-right corner of f.lux.
Whenever you write about a long-used program, your writing becomes longer than you think. I have a lot of affection and I want to let you know a lot of functions. I've dealt with almost all of the features that you will actually use with f.lux, but it's a very valuable program that will protect your eyes beyond convenience (and also works well with dry eye syndrome), so if you have a chance, be sure to try it out.
