    LightZone for Linux

    This photo-editing software from Light Crafts is available as a free download for
    Linux users. I'm currently running Fedora Core 6 and just recently d'loaded to check it out.

    It appears to handle most cameras raw files but do know for sure that Canon is supported.
    Here's a thumbnail to click on to a larger image if you want to see what the canvas looks like
    while running on my Gnome desktop. Also a link to the download.

    A terrific app

    This is $250 software if you want it for Windows. It's quite different from many of the raw converters I've used but it does a fine job.

    I did have to turned of my 3d desktop (KDE) in pclos though but it ran perfectly after I did.

    Looks like they may no longer be offering LightZone for Linux.

    Yes, I believe the developers said something like "You get what you pay for...". I guess no one paid, eh?

    Oh, well, I would have to update my hardware to run on my box here, an Athlon xp 2200, since the new version requires SSE2 support. The Athlon runs linux well, but lacks the needed feature.

    Here's a working link to LightZone for Linux

    This link will work:

    Light Crafts > LightZone 2.0 > Download

    Also, if you have an older processor download version 2.0. It'll work fine with your system. Many of the "oldtimers" there prefer many of the functions of 2.0 over 2.4.

    Can't hurt to try it.

    Thanks. I'll try it on Ubuntu and Debian.

    Tried it, but since I don't currently need raw support, I don't feel the need for this program. It has some nice features, simple editing, but not for the $$. Maybe when I upgrade my processor to SSE2 support and can try a newer version.

    LightZone Is Still Available.

    LightZone is still available for Linux. The LightZone forum and mailing list has the official information. They are making changes to the website. The correct URL, if you have not found it yet, is:

    Light Crafts > LightZone 2.0 > Download
