Dark mode suggestion

Personally I don't feel the need for this.
People should just post proper screenshots and then we wouldn't have this problem. Plus a picture with some more white on it doesn't bother me.

 

If you personally want it, you could always look for an extension which allows for the editing of CSS and add something like 'opacity: 0.6;' to the image class, like this:

img{
  opacity: 0.4;
}

Simply put, that will lower the opacity of the image (how see-through it is), which will make it blend into the dark background a bit more.

 

But I am not familiar with CSS edit extensions, so I am not sure how easy it is to add this or even how well websites work with it.

For the people using dark mode, I think a good improvement would be to darken bright images. 

 

for example: if you are using dark mode and there is a picture where the average brightness of pixels of the image are more than say (178/255), then the image should be darkened to make the average 178. (im using 178 as it is 30% less than the 8-bit number 255). 

 

To me this sounds good in theory but im not sure if servers would be able to handle that amount of work. Just an interesting concept.

I think the issue there is the additional compute cost and lowering of picture quality vs the original.

I assume it would work somewhat like this:

 

if the average pixel brightness is > 178 (let's say 190) the program goes 178 / 190 * 100 = 93% and then sets every pixel to 93% of its original to make the average 178. If the average is already below 178 we do nothing. 

 

Does this mean we do it per channel? Or do we compute the luminance of a pixel first? Or do we require images in a format where lumincance is already computed? 

 

I would say it's possible, the compute power required is probably there, but it's not the simplest thing to implement and perhaps not worth it (at least I've never had problems with bright images)

It's definitely possible for us to do it using opacity or CSS filters. It's something I'll consider, but I am a bit cautious about messing up images and making them not display as intended, so I'm not just going to change this right now.

it could be an experimental setting or something

Per-user configuration for things like that isn't feasible with this forum software.

Perhaps this could be done by creating a separate theme? (Dark theme, reduced image brightness)

I would like a totally black background with the opacity setting.

thus i would just use a css to do something like this

 

html{
	opacity: 50%
}
