Add color to your menubar.

Control what desktop pictures you see.

Tint colors the menubar?

Yes. Tint simply places a color behind the menubar and lets the transparency built into OS X to do the rest.

Tint lets me control what desktop pictures I see?

You're thinking: can't I already do that?

A little. You can go to System Preferences, set the current desktop, and even have it change periodically.

But what if you like a particular image? Can you see that one more often?

What if there's a picture you don't want to see (and don't want to delete it from your picture collection)? Can you automatically skip that image?

What if an image comes up and you'd like to keep it for a day or two? Can you quickly stop it from changing?

Can you change pictures at specific times, such as 8:00am, 4:00pm and midnight every day?

Can you go easily back to one of the pictures that was recently displayed?

With Tint you can!

Are there any limitations?

Tint requires OS X 10.9 and works best with a screen height of at least 900 pixels.

To color the menubar, Translucency effects need to be active. In Yosemite and El Capitan onward, this means keeping "Reduce Transparency" Off in Accessibility Preferences. In Mavericks (10.9), "Translucent menu bar" must be turned On in Desktop Preferences.

As well, automatic menu bar hiding must be turned Off.

Tint will guide you when it notices a setting that will cause issues.

Lastly, please note that Tint only adds color to the menu bar, not the menus themselves.

Where can I get Tint?

Tint is now available on the Mac App Store for $4.99 USD (or the corresponding price in your country).

Tint will be released outside the App Store by the end of June.
