"Zone System Display"



          

Does anyone know of a software package that allows you to see ('visualize') the 7 zones of Ansel Adam's Zone System on the image?

Something like what the newer Nikon bodies do when they blink black on part of the image to show overexposure...

I think that Light Zone from www.lightcrafts.com does. They have a trial version available.

This is not quite what you are asking either, but it might help. Power Retouche Black & White Studio (a plugin for PS) contains a variation on the "zone" system by allowing three independent "zones" (or selection masks) to be created for your B&W image by using an eyedropper to select the "zone". They offer a demo that actually contains a lot of image editing capability but I have never really used it as my head is spinning with trying to learn other software. Hope this helps.
