Formula version. When the screen turns on/off the flow adjusts the screen brightness automatically according to the amount of ambient light. This version primarily calculates the brightness using formulas which decreases the number of blocks in the flow. To customize the screen brightness calculated by the flow, change the offset var block (the second object in the flow) from 0 to a negative number (like -1) to make the screen dimmer than calculated, and to make the screen brighter than calculated set the offset var to a positive number (like 1 or 2). This flow is fast and not very battery intense like some other screen brightness flows because it uses expressions instead of multiple ambient light check objects. Flow can be used with a widget if desired. Custom icons for automate widgets are available at www.iconspedia.com assuming you are using an automate flow beginnings shortcut style widget and have a custom android launcher like GoLauncher or an app like Icon Changer from the app store that allows you to change shortcut icons.
Check out my "night screen" flow that can be used in combination with this one for making the screen even dimmer in very dark environments.
