In this article, I will show you how to use CareUEyes to adjust the color temperature and brightness of the screen.
CareUEyes has eight preset modes, these preset modes can make it more convenient for you to use. Each preset mode has been set with the best color temperature and brightness. You do not need to repeatedly adjust the color temperature and brightness to find suitable parameters, just select one of the suitable preset modes.
CareUEyes filters blue light by adjusting the color temperature, the lower the color temperature, the less blue light.
The difference between the eight preset modes
If you need to handle work that requires strict color fidelity, such as Photoshop photos, you can choose pause mode.
This is the first mode preset for all users, it can effectively filter blue light, reduce screen brightness, and it is very comfortable for the eyes in this mode. If you don’t know which mode to choose, use this mode.
Because the game has high requirements on color, the game mode hardly changes the color of the game, but only reduces the screen brightness. It’s just a few tweaks to the brightness, but it’s also more comfortable for the eyes when playing games.
Movies also have relatively high requirements for color, and the movie mode slightly reduces the color temperature and brightness, which does not affect the color of the movie screen.
If you have just started using CareUEyes and are temporarily unable to adapt to the screen color changes in health mode, it is recommended that you use office mode first. After your eyes get used to it, it is recommended to switch to healthy mode, which can filter blue light more effectively and protect your eyes.
Editing mode will invert screen colors, suitable for editing Word or Excel, and programmers writing code. If your editor has a white background, such as Word or Excel, you get a black background after inversion. A black background removes most of the blue light.
Compared with the editing mode of other similar software, CareUEyes’ editing mode is more comfortable, because it is not pure black, but close to dark gray. Too pure black makes the background and text form a strong contrast, and the eyes are easy to get tired.
One disadvantage of editing mode is that the color of the picture will be distorted, but generally you don’t care about the color of the picture when editing the text.
Reading mode turns your screen color into black and white like an e-ink device. It is suitable for use when you are reading text.
If none of the above seven modes can meet your needs, then you can use the custom mode to customize the color temperature and brightness.
