Sylights

Welcome to the Sylights board!
Please share any idea, request or bug you may have encountered (have you?!) concerning www.sylights.com!

I want it that way:

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    It's sometimes useful to add some notes directly on a diagram, to precise a flash's parameters, how high was a softbox positioned, ....
    Vote for this idea if you want annotations implemented quickly!

    This is already planned in our roadmap, though we don’t exactly know when we’ll be able to release it… But this is definitely something we’re going to do!

  4. Secondary view to see elements heights relation

    Beside a demostration or resulting photo for each diagram i'll add a secondary view to see elements heights relation.

  9. Idea

    Hey
    I'm using your app on my iPhone and on my iPad, but i'm missing a function to synchronize these two (or i haven't found it yet).
    If there is no one: what is about a synch over dropbox or iCloud?

    Maybe add a product photo table, a product photo tent (without the roof) and a mirror to put underneath the products/models for the popular mirrored effect

  11. Impossible to login

    Hey guys,
    I can't login to sylights, I'm pretty sure my password is correct but it doesn't let me in... I tried to send my password to my email address but for some reasons the system says he can't send it...
    My account is on this address : r....@gmail.com

    Oh ! There is also this advert which pop up just in front of the login page, very annoying.

    Hope you can fix this issues asap, cheers
    Régis

  13. Open a copy of diagram

    Enables you to have the original untouched and continue editing a copy. Thus you can easily create diagrams that you can use as templates.

  15. Improvement

    Hi Sylights Team!
    I must say I love your app, its amazing.
    As a beauty and fashion photographer you are missing a lot of light modifiers such different sizes of octabank, color backrounds, silver umbrella, white umbrella, different size of umbrellas, more colored gels, kino lights, tungsten light (like K1 or K2 lights), v flats (white/black).

    Thanks

    Shahaf

  17. Scrims + video/digital movie cameras

    Huge scrims for movie sets and huge production still sets.

  20. 45 degrees ...

    I have been using my strip lights set to different angles. Not just vertical or horizontal. A striplight set on a 45 degree angel would be very cool
