LightZone Resurrected


LightZone was a commercial converter and photo editing program for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS-X that had some unique features and a small following. It uses a 16-bit linear ProPhotoRGB Color Space and has some tools inspired by the Zone System. The company that created LightZone, Light Crafts, went out of business in 2011 and eventually released the code to open source. That code has now been reworked into a new Version 4, which is available for free to Windows users today (Linux and Mac versions should be released shortly).
