So when you post, pretend you’re speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will.
I won’t be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together except spammers: I have downloaded Lightzone yesterday and I am looking for a way to understand how it works. I could open a photo and see what each option does but I prefer a more step by step way of learning. I have seen many Lightzone video tutorials on the web but it seems that they are in some random order.
Could you direct me to a link where I could find such a step by step tutorial suitable for a total newbie?
Sorry about the random order of the tutorials. That is one of the many things I must dore-organize them. Thank you for reminding me. I have not yet produced a step-by-step for the project, but there are a few tutorila other people on Youtube that take this approach a bit.
I will try to make one tomorrow and better organize the videos that are already there. You are probably lkghtzone jpgs, So for now i would try this:. Almost all the other tools work the same as the above 2, at least in terms of how you manipulate them.
Of course they do different things. Try oightzone remember to either turn them off by un-clicking them or by eliminating them by closing them entirely. Next, take a look at the tool anatomy videos, which will now make more sense to you.
It took me years to learn how to tutofial LightZone fully, although it only tok me an hour to learn how to use it basically. This is another great strength of LightZoneit can be very easy to use, yet it is also capable of complex and very delicate or extreme, but we don’t recommend those Because you are completely new to this, prepare to be surprised. If you have more problems, please feel free to contact me directly.
I’ll try to create that basic video tomorrow, now that you have brought it up.
Look at our page of screenshots for a quick overview of a raw workflow. The screenshots aren’t numbered, but they are in order.
The only bad thing about your choice of camera is that you are starting out with a pretty good one. In my case you are starting with a camera that has a quality that equals something I didn’t get until I’d been shooting digital for nearly 7 years. I am a digital photography complete virgin but not so to photography. Photography has always been my beloved hobby; my first camera, in the early seventies, was second hand Nikon F Photomic and several years after I bought a brand new Nikon F2; that was a dream!
Good cameras have spoiled me. After too many years, lately I came back to photography. Before picking the LX7 I played around for some time with my son’s Nikon D90 and in spite that I loved it, I decided that what I need these days futorial a good quality camera but a light weight one with small lightzoone size which I can take when I travel without feeling any extra weight.
I too am a complete beginner. I purchased a Panasonic LF1. I can edit my jpgs okin Lightzone but the RW2 files appear washed out and horid? I have tried editing them to no avail. What am I doing wrong? Could you send me a copy of one of your typical raw files, please? Use the “Contact us” address in the menu bar.

sunburnt and in need of a shave: LightZone – A beginners tutorial, well sort of
You are probably using jpgs, So for now i would try this: In Browser Mode you should watch the Browser videoselect the image you want to work on, and either double click it or click on Edit in the box on the image. This will open up the image in the Editor you should look at the Editor video to orient yourself I suggest that you now open a Relight Lightzzone moon symbol. Already your image will have changed, because that tool deploys “hot” with changes already set.
Pay closest attention to the top 3 sliders. Move the top 2 around, which control shadows and highlights, and watch what happens. See if you get a result that you like.
Now try the third slider, which enhances detail. Close that tool, either by clicking on the “x” or by un-checking it. Your image will return to the way it was out of the camera. Now I recommend looking at the videos about the Zonemapper-Zonefinder.
After you have watched those videos, open a Zonemapper tool and try using it with your image. These 2 tools are a bit unique to LightZone especially the Zonemapperand they are one of the things that set the program apart from others. Now watch the video on Regions, and then try a region in your image with either of these tools you have used.
Now you will see the other thing that sets LightZone apart from other programs. It is a very powerful part of LightZone. Thank you very much for your useful suggestions and for taking your time to help. An excellent choiceboth in. The only bad thing about your.
