Hello,
I am a new member, my name is Roberto.

I found this software and I just downloaded the Mac version 4.1.7 Sierra on my Mac 10.9.5

And 'everything was successful but does not open my files Canon 30D, 6D and Fujifilm x-pro2. I do not open anything really!

Satisfied by the results seen on the network I can not wait to prove it on my files.
Great results and I thank the LightZone Team to maintain this software.

Does anyone know tell me what are the problems encountered?

Roberto

X-Pro2 Files

Hi Roberto, I have just installed LightZone 4.1.7 on MacOs Sierra (10.12.5), and it reads the RAF files from my X-Pro2 just fine. The sharpening is significantly better than Adobe Lightroom 6.

Chris.

As said in another thread,

RawTherapee can open compressed X-T2 files; darktable and LightZone can handle uncompressed ones.

Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and I take this opportunity to greet you and introduce myself: I am retired and I am passionate about Photography, I also like to travel and look all that carries printed lyrics, such as books, magazines, etc.
A few months ago I installed the LightZone program, I have seen tutorials in Spanish, which have helped me a lot.
From the work done, I really like the result of both lighting and definition.
However, the size of the image is a little smaller, because the maximum size that comes out is 1024x 681 pixels, when the image was 3456 x 2304 px. Can they be edited at a larger size?
And another inconvenience that appears to me with relative frequency, is that it seems that the program is stuck, with what I have to close it and to reopen it. I have Windows 10, and I think I may be using a lot of memory, which can not stand my PC. Should something be done? To solve this anomaly.

Welcome Jose

The 1024X681 is the edited version size yet the the full size is available if you do a convert.  One method is to right-click on the thumbnail with the Browse mode and click on convert.  From there you can either change the size parameters or leave it on the full size to complete the conversion.  If you review the metadata on the right hand side of the Browse mode screen you'll see the Edit Size and the Version size for the LZN image.

 

As for Windows 10 issues, check out this link for details --> http://lightzoneproject.org/lorum/lz-wont-run-after-win10-update

 

Also, make sureb that you downloaded the proper Windows 10 download.  There are two versions, 64 bit and 32 bit (x86 for old PCs)

 

Hope this helps!

Written in the meantime:

Welcome, Jose!

The _lzn.jpg (and _lzn.tif) files, that contain the editing information, are by default limited to 1024 x 1024 px, designed actually to be sidecar files. But you can get full-size images in two ways. You can convert (export) the lzn files in full (or any other smaller) resolution and quality. Use right click > Convert - or Browser > Convert from main menu -, both available in Browse mode. In Edit mode, you can use File > Convert Image.

The other option is to change the saving settings – Edit > Preferences > Save (second tab) > Resize To. Here you can choose Don’t limit (or something else) and Quality (I’m using 95-97 %). This way you get unresized pictures, containing editing data. (The only drawback using this method that I know: changing cropping of already saved images can cause upscaling in some cases.)

Your second inconvenience might be a problem, some Windows 10 users report issues, that haven’t been identified yet. (I’m having no problems on my Win10 laptop.) For a start, you could check Preferences > General > Memory Limit. Try setting this to maximum (which is 50 % of installed memory), then lower the value, if necessary. (After changing this, you have to restart LightZone every time.)

If you only have 4 GB of ram available, this might not be enough for comfortable work.

Thanks Sfink16 and Jacal, very much for your quick reply, I will try to prove what you have indicated, especially in terms of size.
