Idea: Lightbox
« on: July 15, 2008, 09:26:38 AM »
I assume this would be rather easy: display "white" on entire screen, press Esc to quit.

It would allow you to use your monitor as a poor man's lightbox for viewing slides, x-rays, MRI's, and other tranparencies.

Don't laugh: I needed to look at some (important) MRI's for a family member the other day. I created a blank/white image file and viewed it in IrfanView's full-screen mode. Worked for me.

Just search for software for "dead-pixels lookup" or "cleaning monitors" tools.
Most of them have an option to display one colour for entire screen.

Sample one:

Hi,
There is need to add a command line parameter, to exit White program by Esc. [without leaving the system tray icon]
