Light Crafts announced the immediate availability of LightZone, a photo image editing application, on Thursday. LightZone is aimed at professional and avid digital photographers looking for an image touch up and manipulation tool outside of Adobe Photoshop.
LightZone includes StudioZone, an image viewer and file browser, ZoneFinder, for analyzing images in tonal values, ZoneMapper for adjusting light and tonal values, and RegionMapper for selecting complex regions in images and controlling blends. It also supports non-destructive editing, similar to Appleis Aperture. It retails for US$249.95.
