Minecraft is one of the most popular games of all time. However, graphical quality is one area where Minecraft, by choice, is surpassed by modern video games.

Shaders bring various graphical upgrades to Minecraft, like post-processing, motion blur, anti-aliasing, real-time reflections, and lighting. While many shader packs require a lot of resources to run, many are designed with low-end gaming systems in mind.

Before installing the shaders listed below, Optifine or Forge must be installed and updated to the latest version.
