Official website for Sildur's Shaders
But what are Sildur's shaders?
Sildur's Shaders is an extension of the GLSL shader mod for Minecraft, now part of Optifine.
Vibrant shaders completly revamps the lighting system of minecraft and adds advanced effects like volumetric lighting, bloom, ambient occlusion and reflections. While still maintaining high performance.
Enhanced default does what the name indicates, instead of completly revamping the style of the game it maintains the vanilla look and adds shadows, reflections and even godrays. It's very lightweight and highly customizable, so even the worst potato is able to run it.
Fabulous shaders is a shaderpack/resourcepack that uses mojangs inbuild shaders function and require the fabulous setting from 1.16+ to work.
My shaderpacks are designed to work on all graphics cards and computers, including Macs, while still delivering a great graphical experience.
Optifine shaders, supported MC versions: 1.7.10 - 1.16.5

Fabulous shaders using mojangs inbuild shaders support, supported MC version 1.16.5
1. Download the resourcepack and move it into your resourcepack folder.
2. Launch Minecraft and select the resourcepack from the list.
3. Go to video settings - options and set graphics to fabulous.
4. That's it!
If you want to tweak effects to your liking, go into the resourcepack \assets\minecraft\shaders\program" and edit sildurs_shaders.fsh with something like notepadd++. Example: //#define Bloom means Bloom is disabled, removing the two slashes - #Bloom enables it.
