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. Why can't I print the diagram.

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

  2. Add a couple of useful items and options

    - annotations
    - saving other people diagrams to my account
    - add a wall to the objects
    - add a mirrorless to the objects ;)

  3. 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 :)

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. Identifiable info on each element

    Each element (ex. Umbrella) should say if it is a silver, gold, white umbrella, instead of just "bounce".

    Or if I put an octabank in the layout it needs to say "on boom" if it is not usually on a regular stand.

  7. Add saving diagrams options!

    Sylights is an awesome application for keeping track of all the lighting setups that we as photographers routinely use. Nevertheless, I think it could be a lot more useful for not only saving our own setups, but for saving also other photographers' lighting setups. I constantly research and see what other photographers do with their gear and I wish I could add those lighting setups to my collection and keep'em forever for future reference.

  8. Ability to create and add own objects

    Much like Microsoft Visio, I would like to be able to add templates for additional objects I and others create. There are so many items I would like to add to a scene, like props, cars, couches, etc. I would pay $15 for a full featured app like this. By the way, the app you created for the iPad is about 70% there, a few tweaks and you could be earning money with it.

  9. 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.

  12. facebook

    When I post some thing to flickr or tumblr it automaticly post to my facebook page. I think Sylights is a great internet resource and would like to see more people using it. Is there a way to add this function here.e.g. every diagram i save posts automatically on face book in my profile.
