F.64 Elite – Zone System Photoshop Panel v4.0 macOS
Over the last three years, Blake has been refining his editing process using the Zone Systems. What started out as an idea evolved into an actionable sequence of layers designed to get you in and out of Photoshop with the best results in the least amount of time. While time savings was the intention, the resulting Digital Zone System created masterpieces with a fraction of the effort.
It quickly became apparent that the System was a photo workflow workhorse. The only real problem was that the system was based on actions in Photoshop. While actions are powerful, they can be convoluted, confusing to beginners, and daunting to open and close everytime you want to use them. There was a need for something better, something more efficient, more accurate, and more deliberate.
At the root, the Zone System Express Panel is a Photoshop extension. It has been designed to work with Photoshop CC. However, it is an extension (or panel) like no other.
The Zone System Express Panel has evolved from the necessity to increase photographic workflow efficiency. In past years the Zone Systems did an excellent job of speeding up the workflow, but they were based on Actions in Photoshop. Actions are great, but they require more steps than necessary to accomplish the task at hand. They also tend to be difficult to find what you are looking for as you may have acquired several hundred actions over time!
Blake realized the necessity for something more, something better, and something more efficient. The Zone Systems Express Panel is the answer to the Workflow dilemma. It is faster than the old Zone Systems, more accurate, and much more efficient.
