Nice Job!

I’ve just started using Light Table, but so far I am loving it! I’ve been searching for an app that would give me greater manipulation when displaying before/after images. The apps I’ve used so far were limiting the display size to pre-set templates but they don’t seem to have the size that I need This allows me to place 2 (or many) images side by side for comparison purposes and then export the canvas to a .png file (or .jpg or the other commonly used file types). The interface is extremely intuitive with quick response, no lag time so far when re-sizing images. File export is immediate.
I was hesitant to spend so much for an app that I wasn’t sure about, but I’m so glad I took a chance on it! I am happy to give Light Table 5 stars! Thank you!

Great replacement for the lighttable feature lost with Aperture


This application is a godsend for those of us who found the lightable feature in Apple’s discontinued Aperture to be an invaluable tool for sorting and arranging photo layouts. Thank you for this app!

Great simple idea, painfully slow


Love the idea - a relatively lightweight light table to work with images on (versus LightRoom or Aperture). However, so far it’s proven to be painfully slow when importing a dozen larger jpgs to work with. Hopefully it’s something we’re doing wrong, but...
