    I have no idea how this happened, nor how to describe it, so I took a screenshot.

    My cat laid down on my laptop and somehow the color, view, display, I don't even know, completely changed. It looks like one of those weird photoshop effects you can apply to pictures. It actually looks pretty cool, the problem is I don't know how it happened, or how to undo it and set it back to normal.

    Here's the screenshot : [​IMG]

    I took it of iTunes since everyone has that and can compare. But it's pretty obvious thats not how it's supposed to look! And it's not just iTunes, but everything, including the dock icons.

    I'm kinda freaking out, so any help would be appreciated.

    It looks normal to us. Are all the colors inverted?

    Command+Control+Option+8

    Are you sure the cat just didn't turn up the brightness?

    I don't see anything wrong with that image.
    If it's a problem with the screen it would not show up on a screen shot..

    Confused.

    I'm pretty sure this is the case here :)

    Whew! That's what it was. Thank you! It's back to normal now, sorry for the confusion and silly question.

    Unless I'm missing something, that picture looks fine to me – I'd guess that your cat has pressed some buttons and perhaps inadvertently triggered a keystroke.

    An obvious one to suggest would be Control/Option/Command 8, which gives your display a 'negative' look – some folk with eye problems find this easier to read.

    EDIT: Indeed, as Tallest Skil rightly suggested. But further proof that cats are evil. ;)

    By the way, your images will show up better if you attach them directly to your posts, rather than using ImageShack. Just click the paperclip icon to add an image to your post.

    Boom! Who's good? I'm good. Diagnosis with only a perfectly normal screenshot as a symptom. :cool:

    Ah, the good ol' Apple+Opt+Cmd+8... great for pranks. People panic, I'll tell you. :D
