  1. 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

  2. Save diagram to the Cloud

    Hello,
    This is a great app and I need to start to edit on my iphone or ipad and I would need to be able to share my diagram on both devices and the cloud or website.
    It would be perfect if I can create, edit and share from web version or iPad or iPhone and have my lightning diagram stored in one place (cloud)
    Today I can only do that on 1 device and this is not very convenient.
    Thanks for your work and keep updating your apps we love them.
    Frederic

  3. First of all, great job, guys ! The abilility to change the color of the background would be ffine. Black or white is a bit limited.

    There's only black or white. Not even gray. If we could select different colors for the background, this will be helpful. I wrote a comment on the appstore. Great job for make this app available for Ipad1. Great team, keep creating !

    Thanks for the feedback!
    We have already planned to do such a thing. We just don’t know yet when this will happen.
    The next update for the apps will bring another color for the backdrops, it won’t be gray though…
    As for the iPad 1 support, we are happy to support iOS 5 for the time being :)

  4. Why can't I print the diagram.

    This site won't get any donations from me not until I can print my diagram.

  7. Diagram editor locks up in Safari (mac)

    Drag, rotate and scale frequently stops working.

    1. Create new diagram
    2. Place a few objects, doesn't matter which ones
    3. Drag, rotate and scale objects
    4. Observe these three operations stop working after a few interactions whereas clicking the x button to remove objects still works.
    5. Problem doesn't go away until Safari is restarted. Refreshing or browsing away then back to editor doesn't help.
    6. No errors in the JavaScript console

  8. Virtual Pen

    A side from the tools you already have. There could be a virtual pen that let's you draw lines on your diagram. Aswel on the web app as on the iOS app.

    - add a wall to the objects
    - add a mirrorless to the objects ;)

  12. More space for favorite diagrams or dedicated page

    It is hard to browse favorite diagrams at this moment. Can You make dedicated page for favorite diagrams (full width) or more space to see them (pressing see more is frustrating) . Also bigger thumbnails would be great :)

  15. New feature

    I would love to be able to create a list of equipment I have on hand and be able to name the elements to match that equipment, I.e. Apollo 50" soft box

  16. Save as new...

    The edit feature is very cool but instead of replacing my diagram It would be cool if we had the option to save it as a new diagram..

    This way we can document a shoot as we move lights around the studio, add or remove extra lights with out having to start a new diagram for each set up

  17. How about a vertical, camera point of view diagram tool?

    This tool would show relative heights for each light, panel or head from the camera's point of view. An outline would show something behind a panel that would otherwise block the view. These would be tied to the overhead lighting diagram. When one moves something here it moves in the camera POV as well

  18. How about adding light panels? These are not reflectors rather shoot through diffusion panels. They would be brighter than the white rflctr.

    Light panels are not reflectors. They are diffusion panels and would be brighter on the diagram than the silver or white reflector panel.

  20. Bug

    Everytime I try to view a light diagram it shows a small image that is skewed and not viewable at all. I have tried to use different computers and browsers.

    Thank you,
    Jason
