January 10, 2016: LightZone v4.1.5 Now Available

Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. 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: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

Masahiro Kitagawa has just published the new version v4.1.5 to the download nodes.  Read more by clicking the link below...

This version fixes some bugs and adds several improvements:

Bug Fixes

  • ConcurrentModificationException and ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException on OpenJDK (#164)
  • Correct focal length metadata calculation for Pentax cameras
  • Added jar files to fix missing laf-widget issue on Ubuntu Linux



  • Updated Danish and Japanese translations
  • When a startup crash dialog appears, dispose splash window that can conceal the dialog
  • Recognize .iiq files from Phase One cameras as TIFF files
  • Add ebuild script for Gentoo Linux. Copy linux/lightzone-9999.ebuild under /usr/local/portage/media-gfx/lightzone/, then sudo ebuild lightzone-9999.ebuild manifest clean merge to download, build and install lightzone.

And it is working on Debian testing again


Thank you again to everyone contributing.


It runs on my windows box and my Debian Testing Workstation. On the latter much faster than I remenber it to be.

Works fine indeed. I have started to complete translation of UI entries to German. Hope I'll be ready in the near future. Thinking about translating the help files to German, too.


Hey, forest bear59!

That would be fantastic.  Let me know if we can help you.  This year is a year for me to get some strategic things going to ensure the future viability of the project.  What if I'm buried in an avalanche?  What if Doug is taken into the witness protection program?  What if Masahiro is kidnapped by the North Koreans?

So, I'm thinking about things.  I'll be in touch in the next few months....

It's ok for the moment

... but I think, it would be a great advantage, if the project could have a broader base of contributors.

Regrettably I am no programming wiz, so I have to do 'secondary tasks'. ;-) . 

Any hope for an updatet

Any hope for an updatet Version on Mac OS 10.6.8? Is this please possible? That will be great, realy. Thanks a lot!


Hello Pixel, wich version do

Hello Pixel, wich version do you use for 10.6.8 at this time?

Any hope for an updatet

THank you

For some reason I'm getting "Spursint.A" Trojan alerts...

... when trying to download the 64bit installer ...  "LightZone-Installer-4.1.5-amd64.exe". Is there something I'm missing or is Windows Defender freaking out unnecesarily? I have no way to diagnose the problem and am left with the 32bit option as the only one that Defender accepts.

Try Free Avast

A couple of thoughts here.  Take a look at this link  __> https://github.com/google/material-design-lite/issues/1754 to see if you can further the discussion.


Second, try Free Avast temporarily, which will disable Windows Defender.  Scan the file with Free Avast to see if it detects the trojan.  You can always remove the program after the experiment.



Good ...but

Great software, to be preferred to other software, but the Italian translation is incomplete...

Win links are not working

Both w32 and win64 links are down

they still are

You need to click the

You need to click the uppermost link in "Downloads for Lightzone". only the torrent-link doesn't work


no, none of those links work.

no, none of those links work. either i got a "bad id" when i try for the torrent, or with spideroak it just loads and loads and nothing happens. tried with several browsers..

Edit: ok, now it did work, but only in firefox! (not in chrome or edge)

i'm not sure why, i think it might be spiederoaks fault

May someone of you have an idee what I have done wrong ?

On what operating system you

On what operating system you want to use LightZone? Is it a download problem or an installation issue?

Welches Betriebssystem nutzt du? Ist es ein Download-Problem oder kommst du mit der Installation nicht klar?

Best regards / schöne Grüße



Windows installer 64bit?

I can only see this installer: LightZone-Installer-4.1.5-x86.exe. By default it wants to install to C:\Program Files (x86). Is this a 32bit version? If so, is there a 64 bit version for windows 8 and intel?

Or is the amd64.exe installer OK to install in a wintel system?

Have a nice day

I clicked on the link, but

I clicked on the link, but when it transfers to the site I get a bad gateway error message. No possible way of downloading the program. Bad form.



I´m writing only for say "thank you" to all the team of LightZone. The best raw photo editing software XD

Thank you again,


This is a **fantastic**

This is a **fantastic** program! Thank you SO much for keeping this project alive and well!!
 I use this for all of my best shots and I have never found anything which even comes close to it.

(and it even works on my Linux!!!)

Wait until you really dig down into it!

You have no idea----truly a wonderful program, great combination of power/capabilities/ease of use.  Not nearly as powerful as Photoshop, but Photoshop has a bunch of tools most photography doesn't need, and is a complicated hell to use.  Not to mention the price....

Lightroom is a great program, but also more complicated and requires your hand in marriage (libraries, need we say more? Although printing is *better*, at least interface-wise), so is PaintShop Pro, and Darktable, RawTherapee, and others out there.  But we still love LightZone.  When you get it to work for you, it really works.  And one great thing about it is that the ease of use is very freeing. The biggest problem is that a lot of the power, especially in the blending modes, is a little hidden away.
