The Birth of the Colors
A while ago, I was adjusting my monitor’s settings, and in my stupidity, I made a real mess of the settings… I needed to fix everything, but couldn’t do it easily. I decided that some kind of screen test pattern was needed so I could re-align everything and correct the colors. Several days later, Show Me The Colors! was born. The idea itself really isn’t that original – people have been using test patterns for ages. I just applied it to a computer screen.
As well as creating my basic test patterns, I decided along the way to incorporate some tests for spotting dead/stuck pixels on LCDs. There are also some patterns for assisting with positioning projectors as well. Overall, it’s kinda handy.

Version 4.0 – Gone, but not forgotten
For those of you without the .NET framework, the above version just won’t work at all… which is why I’ve left the previous version here as well.
