    Thanks for sharing:)
    MacWorld on YouTube covered it in their "6 Snow Leopard Tips" video a little bit before, though.

    Ah darn,
    Doesn't work directly in Finder! Such a fail.... took me awhile to figure out they said it only worked in save dialog boxes... but, while trying I figured out another shortcut I've never seen before.

    Control+option+command+, or .

    I'm not sure what it changes... but I'm pretty sure contrast? Never heard of this before.
