I often use ctrl+alt+I and windows magnifier to invert the colors of my screen, to make bright windows easier to read.

The problem is that, eg, some windows are naturally dark and some are naturally light, and so I find myself often toggling the inversion as I switch between windows. I would like to be able to apply preferences on a per-window basis: eg, my email client is white-based and I would like to keep it always inverted.

Is there a way to accomplish this?

Yeah, although he is asking specifically for a way with magnifier, whereas i will accept any solution including 3rd party software – Jonah Oct 11 '13 at 18:30
