It’s got all the good colors! There is RED, GREEN, and BLUE! And for the adventurous mind plenty of CYAN, MAGENTA, and YELLOW is available. Should you like a more conservative approach we got you covered with glamorous white [1] and abysmal black [2].

Brightness adjustment 10% — 100%. Optional color to black pattern of checker, horizontal stripes, and vertical stripes. Pattern can be zoomed to 1:1, Retina, 2X, 4X, 8X, 16X.

Simple toggle to run in fullscreen and fading menu on inactivity to proof every last pixel. Every function is available by hotkeys.

[1] may not contain any actual white.

[2] doubles as a practical but rather dull screen saver.
