Enjoy all the
capabilities of lightroom / darkroom photo editing without the
results without professional prices!
Both the MAC and
PC installation files are included on this CD, so if you
have both computers, why buy 2 disks?
If you are
thinking about investing in a high end, name brand
photo editing software, then you should
know that all of these large
corporations that make professional grade software are
switching pricing models to a subscription based model.
It is no longer enough to just pay one high price to use
their software, now you have to pay a high price EVERY YEAR
and continue to pay it as long as you want that software to
work. And if you stop paying, you can no longer access
the files you created until you cough up more money.
We think that is absurd and criminal. Fire the big
giants, and go with this type of software. Low priced,
but fully featured. This is the full version of
LightZone, the professional photo editing suite, this is not
trial or limited in anyway.
professional-level digital darkroom software for
Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, that includes RAW
processing and editing. Rather than using layers in the
way that other photo editors do, LightZone lets the user
build up a stack of tools which can be rearranged,
readjusted, turned off and on, and removed from the
stack. It's a completely non-destructive editor, where
any of the tools can be re-adjusted or modified later —
even in a different editing session. A tool stack can
even be copied to a batch of photos at one time.
LightZone always operates in a 16-bit linear color space
with the wide gamut of ProPhoto RGB.
While many of LightZone's
tools are familiar ones, they also have shared, multiple
modification possibilities built in that amplify their
power and flexibility. LightZone also offers some
unusual tools for tonal control — meaning brightness,
contrast, shadows, highlights, etc. Some are inspired
by the Zone System, and some are inspired by HDR
tone-mapping. These tools put LightZone in a class by
itself for working with black-and-white imagery. They're
very useful for color photos, too, especially in mixed
LightZone was a pioneer
in selective editing using vector based regions
creation. Pixels can also be selected by color and/or
brightness ranges. These selection features allow users
to edit only a portion of an image in a flexible system
that is extremely user friendly and intuitive.
The combination of the
individual tools' inherent flexibility, the flexibility
of the Tool Stack, its completely non destructive
editing in a 16-bit wide gamut color space, and its
intuitive GUI, make LightZone a remarkable alternative
for those not entirely comfortable with other photo
LightZone is a
"Non-destructive" editor and does not automatically
change the original file. So you can always go back to
the original unless you choose to destroy it in some
other way - like copying over it or deletiing it.
Whenever you edit an image, it will not overwrite the
original, rather create a new file, so you never have to
worry about losing your original files.
Lightzone creates JPEG
files with references to the original file location and
documents all the changes made to it during editing.
Because those files contain the full "edit history", you
can always undo your edits or build upon them in another
edit at a later time. And since all the
transformations are based on the original raw image,
there is no loss of quality on your subsequent future
Lightzone is every bit as
powerful as software that literally costs 100 times the
cost of a LightZone CD. If you are into digital
photography, you need LightZone.
