The second update in a week provides an RGB mode in ZoneMapper and more Raw file support.
Light Crafts has again updated ZightZone, its cross-platform image editing solution based on the Zone System, introducing Color Cast and Color Balance tools in addition to improved noise reduction, new histogram and sampler views, a command to invert masks and some bug fixes. The new version also treats grayscale images as RGB to allow color tools to be used on them. A Help menu has been implemented as well.
• ZoneMapper now has a setting for RGB mode, as well as the original
Luminosity mode. RGB mode is useful in some situations where
Luminosity mode gives unsatisfactory results with saturated colors.
• Pentax Raw-capable cameras are now supported, including *ist D, *ist DS,
and *ist DL.
• Presets for Raw cameras from Canon and Nikon have been revised to
produce more accurate colors.
The free update is available from the LightZone update page.
