Award-winning LightZone adds visual photo editing to photo management suites

PALO ALTO, CA—March 19, 2007—Light Crafts, creators of LightZone photoediting
software, today announced the integration of LightZone with Adobe
Photoshop Lightroom, Apple Aperture and Apple iPhoto. Beginning today, Light
Crafts will offer LightZone Basic, its best-of-breed photo-editing package, for the
discounted rate of $99.95 (regular price: $149.95) to Lightroom and Aperture users,
enabling them to take advantage of patented visual editing technology seamlessly
within these proprietary photo databases.

As the premier photo editing software for both amateur and professional
photographers, LightZone empowers users to edit photographs the way they shoot
them--visually. Unlike traditional photo-editing software, LightZone enables users to
retouch and enhance photos in a simple and natural way, without the need to learn a
new editing language or mathematical representations that have no meaning to most

“Light Crafts is fundamentally changing digital photo editing to reduce complexity
and return control to photographers,” said Georges van Hoegaerden, chief executive
officer, Light Crafts. “We’re introducing the power of visual photo editing to all
photographers, independent of their photo management software environment.”

Users simply select LightZone as the external photo editor from the preferences
menu within Lightroom, Aperture or iPhoto to get started. From editing RAW
photographs or JPEG, TIFF or DNG photos, LightZone's intelligent editing features
help adjust exposures, boost overall color, correct color shifts and white balance
errors, selectively sharpen or blur images or parts of images, remove dust spots and
reduce the noise often found in high-ISO digital images.

LightZone is available in two versions, LightZone 2.0 and LightZone Basic. LightZone
Basic is a best-of-breed photo editor. LightZone 2.0 is a complete photo editing and
photo management suite, incorporating all the features of LightZone Basic, plus
comprehensive workflow and photo management capabilities.

to eligible Lightroom and Aperture users until June 30, 2007. LightZone 2.0 is offered
at $249.95.
