LightZone Comes to Linux

LightZone for Linux

Light Crafts has released a Linux version of the award-winning LightZone photo editing software.

This makes LightZone the first and only application of its kind to span all three major operating systems – Mac, Windows and now Linux. LightZone Version 3.3 beta for Linux may be downloaded for free from here. It’s yours to try for 30 days.

With the release, Light Crafts said Linux users will now have access to LightZone’s ZoneMapper and Zone Tools, which enable digital photographers to easily apply the powerful Zone System, developed by Ansel Adams in 1941, to produce photos with exceptional exposure and tonal ranges.

While in the past, the Zone System may have required considerable effort and skill working directly with film negatives, LightZone’s new digital photography Zone Tools effortlessly achieves the same results with no special skills. These new tools include the Zone Mapper Tool, which helps users find similar exposure areas within a photo, and the Zone Tool, which adjusts these tonal groups to desired levels.

The new Linux version has been internally tested on such popular distributions as Ubuntu, Red Hat and Debian.
