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...

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.
