I like to turn off dimming of unselected posters.
When it comes to the recently added list in NEO, I find that the dimmed images are much too dark and difficult to see until you actually select them.
This is easily solved if it can be changed to honor the configuration setting.
I think this option may not be what you think it is. I originally thought it was what you do – the relative “dimming” of poster items that are not the currently selected item. However, this is not what it was designed to be. it is only used in the default theme (I think) and it governs whether or not the entire poster area is dimmed when the menu bar gets focus.
I don’t believe it is referenced anywhere else unless some other themes have implemented it differently.
Run this by me again. Is this the behavior you are suggesting?
1) Turn off dim poster settings = no dimming effects in RAL.
2) Turn on dim poster settings = dimming effects are applied in RAL.
