Since I do a lot of photo stuff, I use a calibrated/profiled monitor at home. While I also calibrated/profiled my MBPs screen, it’s way inferior, but good enough for the first edits on the go. One problem: the calibration is dona at a specific screen brightness, so to get accurate colors, the brightess setting should always be the same.
I use Shifty http://shifty.natethompson.io to turn off Night Shift when starting Lightroom, Photoshop, Photo Mechanic and other photo stuff.
I have a Keyboard Maestro macro that sets the brightness to 85% whenever I activate LR, PS, etc. I just starts an AppleScript:
tell application “System Preferences”
reveal anchor “displaysDisplayTab” of pane id “com.apple.preference.displays”
tell application “System Events”
set value of slider 1 of group 2 of tab group 1 of window 1 of process “System Preferences” to 0.85
- doesn’t work with auto brightness (yet?)
