PRESS RELEASE: Light Crafts' New LightZone Photo Editing Software Supports Apple Mac Leopard OS X
LightZone 3.2 Adds Powerful Photo Editing Capabilities to Apple's New Operating System
PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Light Crafts, creator of award-winning LightZone photo editing software, today released version 3.2 of LightZone. The updated version of the software is fully compatible with the new Apple OS X Leopard operating system, giving users of Apple's newest Mac operating system the innovative and powerful photo editing capabilities of LightZone. The LightZone update also adds support for a number of new digital cameras, including: Canon PowerShot G9 and Canon 40D (sRaw); Leica V-LUX 1; Olympus EVOLT E-510; Panasonic DMC-FZ18; and Sony dSLR-A700. Support for the recently announced Nikon D3, D300 and the Olympus E-3 cameras is expected to be available immediately upon their commercial release.
LightZone photo editing software, available for both the PC and Mac, uses an innovative approach to editing and manipulating digital photographs. Its powerful and easy-to-use tools, based on patent-pending image processing technology, make adjusting and improving photos a quick and simple process. Photos, even those with poor lighting or exposure, can be improved with just a few clicks of the mouse. Other photo editing solutions require more time and many more steps to achieve similar results.
