Light Crafts, Inc. will introduce a new photo editing software package which they will formally launch on September 27 at the Photokina photo expo.
Based on Ansel Adams’ Zone System, LightZone 2.0 gives photographers precise control over exposure, contrast and color, in an easy-to-use and intuitive interface that streamlines workflow and dramatically saves time.
Is it any better than Photoshop? Light Crafts says Lightzone supports all major camera Raw formats with native custom processing, as well as TIFF, JPEG and PNG. And itâ€™s a lot easier to use.
“In the past, the traditional photo-retouching solutions, originally created for the graphic arts designer, have been expensive, hard-to-learn and awkward to use. LightZone is the first photo imaging and editing solution that allows the photographer of all levels to rapidly make adjustments to their photos, set masks and experiment with enhancements,” the company said.
LightZone 2.0 may be downloaded as an open beta from the company’s Web site at www.lightcrafts.com.
