Red Screen for Laptop?

Hi All, I have recently bought a lovely new laptop to use for imaging and it works great.  Only problem is that it has a touch screen, which I am surprised to say I am finding incredibly useful.  With my old laptop I just bought one of StarSharp Red Filter screens from FLO, which was very useful at night :).  I have been using this on my new laptop, but I want to use the touch screen, obviously not possible when the StarSharp Red Filter is in place :(.  Does anyone know of a way of turning the whole screen into a Red Mode?  I can see that it can be done with a MAC, but searching for Red screens on google just gives people complaining about how their screens have gone red because of some bug :rolleyes:.  Anyone know if / how this can be done on a window 8.1 laptop?

Cheers,

Dave :)

On my Windows 8 laptop, I created a "Red" display profile using the Intel Graphics display utility. I right click on the desktop, click Graphics Properties + Display - Set to 0 the Green and Blue channels for brightness, contrast and gamma and save the profile as "Red" - When I take the laptop outside I simply Click Graphics Properties and select the "Red" profile from the drop down list and viola, red screen.

Personally, I would use a grey filter instead or a screen dimmed almost to the point of being black. I may be the only one in the world that finds red light extremely disturbing to my night vision... Go figure ;)

Take a look at the Backyard Red program that Steve Ward posted above. It can be set to any colour - or non-colour for black - that are in your computer. Grey included. And you can select the intensity on a sliding scale.

Very nice program!

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks, Dave. If I ever need it I'll look at it. As things are right now I am never in the outdoors with a computer. Always indoors, in the warmth, with the scope stuff either 20 feet away on the balcony or 2380 km away in southern France :)
