Working with lots of images? You'll need a light table with real features

by News Department

LightTable 3.0.1 is now available in the Mac App Store Working with lots of images can sometimes have problems. You've tried the icon view, and various contact sheet methods. Both Photoshop and Photoshop Elements have their own built in image browsing utilities -- but nobody has come up with the light table functionality we enjoyed for decades in the professional world. Now, the latest digital LightTable makes this experience available with an unlimited virtual canvas application for working with images!

LightTable lets users layout, inspect and compare images. Images can be resized, repositioned, layered and aligned allowing users to discover different storytelling perspectives. The 3.0.1 Update introduces gesture-based manipulation of canvas items, consolidates the user interface and provides several stability enhancement bug fixes.


Einstein's legacy Chief Product Officer Douglas A. Welton says

Quoting  begins With this release, we continue to refine LightTable as a tool for photographers, editors and designers who need to explore visual possibilities interactively ... To provide a more focussed experience for repeated tasks, we consolidated the placement of elements on the user interface and we added gesture support for doing magnification. We have also increased canvas size to provide a larger working area for manipulating image items. Quoting  ends


LightTable 3.0.1 includes the following key features:

  • Unlimited Canvas: The LightTable Virtual Canvas automatically expands to accommodate any number of images.
  • Layout Tools: LightTable provides the tools to align, resize or re-order items or groups of images relative to the canvas or other images.
  • Canvas Automation: Duplicate, replicate and automatically arrange images using built-in canvas automation functions.
