Optimize Windlight Settings

Reflective jewelry is a new technology in SL that allows gems to take their sparkle and beauty from the light reflecting into and out of each piece.  Compare it to other jewelry and see for yourself how beautiful it is.

Some simple adjustments in ‘Environment Settings’ will allow Windlight to bring out the best sparkle and radiance in your jewelry and add warmth and tone to your avatar’s skin.  Perfect for photography or just for general viewing, this setting really brings out the best in CCD’s Reflective Jewelry.
