Light Pad HD

By Scott Stevens

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Turn your iPad into a light box to view 35mm slides, negatives, and X-rays. The specialized Viewports truly enhance the viewing experience.

Tap the lock in the corner to hide the interface, and lock the page.

- 35mm Slide page
- 35mm Negative page
- Medium/Large Format Negative page
- Free-form full white page
- Darkroom Red interface
- White Viewports that can be hidden/shown with a finger tap
- Double tap to reset all View Ports

I created this App because I needed a portable light box to view x-rays of welding tests at work and sort slides at home. I hope you also find it useful.

Customer Reviews

What a great app!

Recently, while working on a project to digitize some small glass negatives I found myself wishing I had a light box to get a better look at them. While doing some internet research I ran across a forum that mentioned using an iPad for a light box. What a great idea, and as I already had my beloved iPad I rushed to the App Store and "Viola!" here was Light Pad HD! What a bargain for $1.99. Obviously you need to be careful not to scratch your screen and luckily these glass negatives were frame mounted. Light Pad HD is a great example of being able to use the iPad to replace yet another mechanical piece of equipment. The app has pre-set templates for standard slides and negative strips and a template you can customize for special sizes. Thanks for this app!

Simple, Practical, Useable

Downloaded this app to use as a "light table" for a film scanning project that included 35mm, 645, 6x7, and 6x8 transparencies. It did just want I wanted/expected it to do without hassle or complications. Works perfectly on full size iPad screen. Would have given it 5 stars if it automatically rescaled the light patches to be the correct size when running on the smaller iPad Mini screen.

great idea!

This app is perfect. The templates are a bit overkill since all we really need is a white glowing screen. I always use the full screen mode no matter what I am viewing.

Oh, and ignore the review complaining that it can't do full screen, it can. That reviewer is wrong.
