Light Crafts Logo

If you’re quite perplexed with the complexity of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Apple Aperture or Apple iPhoto, Light Crafts is offering to simplify that by offering a visual way to edit photos.

LightZone enables users to retouch and enhance photos in a simple and natural way, without the need to learn a new editing language or mathematical representations that have no meaning to most photographers, according to Light Crafts.

LightZone is compatible with Lightroom, Aperture and iPhoto. The user has to simply select LightZone as the external photo editor from the preferences menu within those apps and LightZone kicks in to offer visual photo editing to help adjust exposures, boost overall color, correct color shifts and white balance errors, selectively sharpen or blur images or parts of images, remove dust spots and reduce the noise often found in high-ISO digital images.

LightZone Basic is now available at a discounted price of $100 (from $150), while LightZone 2.0 is offered at $250.
