Mac Trick

Last night I came across this relatively useless but fun little Mac keyboard trick.

Pressing the following key combination does a cool color reverse on your display:

Cmd+Opt+Ctrl+6+8

I’m not sure what the utility of this could be, but it’s a fun little trick. Actually, I could see using this if working in a dark room in order to reduce the brightness of the screen (I know, you could just adjust the brightness as well). I might also invoke this if looking at photographs for use in promo materials–postcards for shows or theatre programs or websites–to see if a particular picture might look more startling or powerful in negative.

One thought on “Mac Trick

  1. It’s actually an accessibility option (you can see the others by going to the System Preferences->Universal Access panel). But it’s there because for people with some kinds of optical disability, white text on a black screen is easier to read.
