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.

  1. Enable annotations on diagram

    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!

        Generate a PDF output of the diagram, including the diagram itself, notes and associated photos

                • Can you make a file format that we can share with others in the app?

                  I would like to have a file I could email an another photographer and let them open it on their iPad and make changes and send it back to me.

                    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?

                    • Some product photo gear

                      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

                      • 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.

                              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

                                  • 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

                                      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

                                      • Would like LIGHT METER added.

                                        I use this as an aid to demo images taken and would love a light meter to show placement for light readings.
                                        Thanks

                                        • Zoom in and Zoom out without wheel mouse

                                          How to do a zoom in or zoom ou if I don't have a wheel mouse ? I think we need a solution to zoom without the wheel.
