One of the MacOS features is Night Shift. Got to Settings and them Displays. There you can find the Night Shift tab to turn it on or off.

I can see a photographer or other graphic artist trying to finalize an important image as the carefully calibrated color managed monitor slows moves into a yellow tint to help you get read for bed.

If the morning you go back to the image to get ready to send it our or print it....and wonder why it has a sky blue cast to it. :eek:

f.lux has an option to disable itself whenever you're in a specific app. I told it to return the screen to normal whenever I'm in Photos or Quicktime Player (as an example).

Maybe Night Shift will gain this option later, or maybe not. I've gotten to like the warmer screen late at night, so I might keep using f.lux for a while.

I'll just keep using f.lux - I've got it disabled for all photo editing applications, for the very reason you stated about forgetting or not realising :D
