macOS Mojave - Light/Dark mode switcher

PVO_DavePVO_Dave Frets: 1412
Finally got round to upgrading last night, learnt how to make an Application in Automator to enable you to switch between Light / Dark mode, then made some nicer icons for it. 

Quick guide here if anyone is interested - I'll likely re-do the MBP icon as it looked a little fuzzy on my iMac screen, but I'm sure it'll be fine on a smaller one.

    It is certainly a neat function, I have set up a quick action run from my Touch Bar to do the same thing, mostly to save dock real estate, but also I'm not sure just how often I would actually use it.

    Dark mode looks like the '80s. Not exactly easy on the eye for long periods of time either.
    How much does it weigh? & Does it play like butter?

    I will not get to see OS Mojave until I upgrade to a newer Mac.  :#

    Just in case anyone did use this, I've fixed the fuzzy icons now, looks a lot sharper. 

    If you used it, grab the new imagine, update via Get Info as before. You will likely then have to remove from the dock and re-add to see the 'retina' version :)

    I quite like dark mode, but the sand dune picture has taken over my desktop background.  Previously i had one my own selection from around 100 pics coming up a i logged in.

    System Prefs/ Desktop & Screensaver will fix that.

    Yer that was the first thing I tried.  Option currently grayed out.  I suspect a upgrade issue which Im hoping be sorted at the next patch.

    EDIT:   Had a quick poke around the Apple forums and its a known issue with an easy fix.  Just have to go deep into the folder with the pics in to trigger the OS to recognise that folder as an option for desktop images .  Pretty sure that wasn't needed previously.
