LightZone digital photo editing and workflow software makes it easy to improve your photos. Use LightZone to visually browse and edit photo. LightZone is the essential desktop photo-editing software for people who value their photographs. LightZone is purpose-built for photography and allows anyone, regardless of photographic skillset, to edit photographs quickly and easily.
LightZone’s patented image-processing analyzes every photograph and allows photo-editors to make smart visual edits, instantly and with ease. LightZone’s new built-in instant styles, such as Black and White, High Dynamic Range, Local Contrast, Toning, give photo-editors the instant results they want. Tweak a style or dive right in and use LightZone’s intelligent tools to make it your own. LightZone understands the technology of photography, so its users don’t need to.
LightZone is the only photo-editor where every operation is a smart operation. No more tweaking of confusing histograms, no more guess-work; a single slider in LightZone can adjust any of the 16 exposure values in an image: individually, grouped or selectively. Safely experiment with change in exposures without changing color or vice versa. Instantly create High Dynamic Range images, without the need to take multiple exposures. All operations are performed in a 16-bit dynamic range for maximum editing flexibility. An unlimited tool stack allows for unlimited edits to the photograph, in which the hierarchy determines in what order these edits are performed. Edit instructions are stored as non destructive operational layers (rather than pixel layers). Individual edit operations can be sequenced differently and turned on or off.
