Introduction to LightZone

A brief screencast introduction to LightZone, an image processing and workflow application for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Two interesting features of LightZone are highlighted in the video: the Zone Mapper which allows exposure values in different parts of a photo to be adjusted very quickly and intuitively; and super easy built-in effects masking via simple point drawing tools.

    Way cool! I never really looked at Lightzone before but the masking tools (esp. adjustable blending zone) really make it work. Also the zones interface is the best such I’ve seen, and the reorderable stack of effects is pretty sweet. If only they had a 3.x version for Linux.

  • This was great John. Thanks! I’ve just recently begun using lightzone and stumbled across your demo while searching the internet.
