So I have a windows PC and a MacBook Pro... For no reasonable reason, I want to put everything in Sepia, dim the brightness as much as possible and switch off all the lights...

I've achieved this with ease on the Windows PC, (as I could simply change the monitor's color overlay from 'none' to 'sepia'), but how do I do this on the MacBook Pro?

I've gathered that it has something to do with the color profiles, and I figure that all I have to do is find a sepia color profile and just tell the mac to use that one instead...

Problems so far:

  • Doing it myself by creating a new profile is a headache (the steps that Apple puts me through are pretty painful)
  • Looking for it online has returned no meaningful results... :-(

@MaxMackie - What did you edit? Just so I know... – Abhishek Jul 10 '11 at 14:15
I changed "sephia" to "sepia" in the title. A minor edit. – n0pe Jul 10 '11 at 14:34
Ah... Lol, thanks... :-p – Abhishek Jul 10 '11 at 14:38
No worries, happens all the time :) – n0pe Jul 10 '11 at 14:39

You can apply a color filter (and reduce screen brightness) with Nocturne:

Lol, yes... This did it.. It was also pretty trippy cycling through all the tint colors while in night mode... – Abhishek Jul 12 '11 at 6:20

You can use the cross-platform f.lux to change the white color temperature on your system, even have it happen automatically based on time (i.e. during the night).
