The new graphical Bloom effect is BLECH even on low

+1 completely agree.

I noticed the bloom the first 5 seconds into the league.

ANY AMOUNT of Light bleed glowy effects actually give me eye strain and all-together look awful imo.

GGG please allow us to turn this off.

I don't think it's that noticeable on "Slight", but if it really hurts people then hell yeah I support an option to disable it completely.
I thought there is something wrong with the picture. Or my eyes. Didn't play for couple months, so I assumed I just forgot how it looked, but now I see what's up. And yeah, I agree, the bloom is terrible. I would prefer to turn it off completely. It's odd that I can't do this.

So i know there are things like reshade out there that can manipulate certain rendering aspects.

Anyone know if a similar wrapper would enable you to disabled bloom, or just post-processing effects as a whole?
I didnt notice it too much at first, but when i went into Solaris temple, kinda of a darkish layout and omg it became untolerable. One Tectonic Slam would light up the whole screen with blurry/hazy white light.

Can't even play VD (atleast) without bloom making it look like this.

Yeah I agree, I don't know who made the decision of not being able to turn bloom off. It's like a standard option in ALL games, but not PoE.
+1, please let us disable the bloom effect,

this is not even a "performance problem" but this really give some people headaches and eyestrain.
it's going beyond the game.
LET US DISABLE POST PROCESSING AND BLOOM.

STOP TORTURING OUR EYES WITH THIS UNNECESSARY CRAP.

Let those who want it have it and those who don't not have it. FFS. Who comes up with those decisions what's the reason besides majorly fucking people over.

I'm here almost from day 1 of PoE but I swear the decisions in this game and especially in graphics department are becoming... Meah, let's not talk about sad things.

As AVGN would say " WHAT THE HELL WERE THEY THINKING? "
Memory usage seems to FINALLY be OK.

Hopefully, this mess doesn't happen again.

Say HI to useless forced Bloom though:D.
