How To Install LightZone on Ubuntu 20.04

In this article, we will show you how to install LightZone on Ubuntu systems

LightZone is a free, open-source digital photo editor software application. It was originally developed as commercial software by the now-defunct Light Crafts. Its main purpose is to handle the workflow, including non-destructive editing when handling images in various RAW formats. It is comparable to Adobe Lightroom.

LightZone edits both RAW and JPEG format images. LightZone can create and apply pre-determined image transformations, called “styles”, to an entire batch of images in a single operation. Using styles, photographers make and save their own preferred compensations for each RAW image based upon camera specific characteristics.
