    This is one of the effect which is given as a feature in Universal Access preference options. Now to disable it you can follow up either of the two points.

    -> Open the System preferences -> Select the Universal Access pane and disable all the options from there.

    -> Just press the key combination of Control + Option + Command + 8 to get back your Mac screen to normal.

    -> You can go to the Universal Access preference pane and enable the options which are there are at any point of time.
