Micro-adjustment of Screen Brightness with Mac 10.7.4

As of Mac OS X 10.7.4, it is now possible to make finer adjustments to screen brightness on Apple displays, allowing more precise targeting of your display luminance. To use this new feature with Spyder4Elite, just hold down the Shift and Option keys while pressing the brightness up (large sun) or brightness down (small sun) keys when targeting your optimum brightness level. This will subdivide the current 16 levels into 64 levels. In the illustration below, please note that the end of the bar indicating the brightness level no longer ends at an even square, but at a subsection of a square.
