Downloading Redshift

There are two primary ways to download Redshift, one option is to manually download and run the Redshift installer and the other is to use the Maxon App. Both methods require you to follow the same installation process but Maxon App has the added benefit of being able to automatically check to see if there are new versions of Redshift available compared to what is currently installed on your system.

Please see the Maxon App documentation for help getting up and running with Maxon App.
