Shaders, they're awesome and I'm sure that most people if they could run them without lagging their game would. However, at this time it doesn't seem like many people use them I'd think mainly due to them being GPU intensive. This brings me to texture pack posts; your looking through the texture packs and you see these amazing looking thumbnails and you click on it to take a better look but you find that the effect that's making the pictures stand out and look so different an amazing are shaders. It, to me , seems a bit misleading. Yes you can kind of picture what the pack looks like without the shaders but, you can't really get a good picture. I am aware that some texture packs make items/blocks get special effects with shaders and that that should be showcased but, I think that it should become more of a thing where the creators of the pack post more pictures without using them.

In the end, I'm not saying that people who post texturepacks shouldn't post any pictures with shaders but I think that they should post less shader pictures to give a better idea of how their hard work makes the game look different without using any other enhancements.

What do you think?

I agree, it's annoying when you download a pack which has amazing pictures, but when you use it it doesn't look the same, or as beautiful, and you had no idea because the pictures used shaders.

Yeah. Even if you can tell they use shaders, it affects the vibrancy and gamma and many other aspects of the color/look of the blocks. Thanks for the comment!
