The app is aimed at all levels of photographers and is free to use for 'Personal' use. Photographers with a commercial requirement are able to export high quality 300dpi, copyright free diagrams in return for a small license fee which is paid for by purchasing 'credits' via PayPal. If you've been creating Lighting Diagrams in the past in the likes of Photoshop this will not only save you time but produces great results.
Lighting Diagrams can be exported as low or high resolution rendered images or users can register for a free publishing account and publish their diagrams online to share with the community. The company recently announced a Partnership with Lastolite Professional and 15 of their products have been included into the app.
