### What is the difference between the brightness sliders in the web UI?
There are three brightness sliders in the web UI. The white one in the **top bar** is the **master brightness** - it scales down every single color and all effects, palettes and segments by the same factor.
In contrast, the slider **underneath the color wheel only** applies to the **currently selected color** and will not affect the brightness of other colors or Palettes. It is recommended to use this slider only if you like a darker version of a color alongside other, brighter colors. It should not be used to control the overall brightness, so it is recommended to leave it on maximum and instead use the master brightness control.
