8.1/10 recommended. (See why below)
NB: If make fails with "PlaceholderText is not a member of QPalette" errors, your Qt installation is older than 5.12. Updating Qt is recommended, but as a workaround you can manually delete the offending lines in "ui_mainwindow.h".

Gammy starts minimized in the system tray. Click on the icon open the settings window.
It's a free tool whose purpose is to aid the eyes in adapting to rapid changes in screen brightness.
It can dim the screen if its content is too bright, or brighten it otherwise. This can help your eyes adjust when switching between dark and light windows, especially at night or in suboptimal lighting conditions.
Gammy periodically takes a screenshot, then gradually adjusts the brightness of the screen based on its contents.
The screenshot process is hardware accelerated in order to provide great performance.
By default, Windows limits the available gamma range that can be used.
To fix this: right click on Gammy, click on "Run as administrator", then restart Windows to enable the full brightness/temperature range.
The interface that Gammy uses for taking a GPU screenshot is unfortunately unavailable in Windows 7.
A less efficient screen capture method is used instead, which still does the job, but might cause a screen stutter when moving windows.
The latest changes can be seen on GitHub's releases page.
