LightZone provides a unique visual approach to digital photo editing,
allowing you to focus on what you want to do with your photos,
not how you do it.
The software allows you to retouch and enhance photos in a simple
and natural way, without the steep learning-curve found in many other
LightZone incorporates and updates for the digital era many of the same
ideas and techniques used by professional photographers working in
film-based darkrooms, including the photographic Zone System pioneered
by Ansel Adams. From RAW camera images to finished JPEG or TIFF photos,
suitable for web posting or print, LightZone is a complete digital
image editing studio in a single software package.
LightZone allows you to work at a higher level, focusing on creativity
rather than on remembering the 'right' settings for pixel masks, curves
and histograms. Our approach to photo editing allows you to see your
changes at every step, so you'll never need to 'undo' the last
10 minutes of your work. Free free to forget about think software
manuals, monthly magazine articles or select web sites needed to teach
you how to use software; you won't need any of this with LightZone.
Every LightZone tool and setting is always visiable in the tool stack,
ready for use. Turn off a previously used Sharpening tool with one click,
or add a new Color Balance tool with another click. It really is that easy.
With LightZone, your creativity is never left in the dark.
With other photo editing programs, it can take a lot of time to edit each
photo. You know the drill – open the browser application. Find your photo.
Then convert from RAW. Next, apply a pixel mask.
Wupps! Better apply another mask, this time with new settings.
Start again… and again… and again, until you get it right.
With LightZone, editing photos is faster, because everything can be done
in a single application window. With LightZone you, see everything on the
screen in front of you. With LightZone, you'll work faster and you'll work
smarter, and maybe you'll finally get time to scan in and edit those old
photos gathering dust in the closet. You can do it all with LightZone.
