Light Panel Pro
Light Panel Pro is an App that turns your mobile device into a flexible multi-purpose LED light panel - one that you always have with you to provide fill light for macro or product photography:
Both brightness and colour temperature are modifiable.
Colour temperature can be varied between 1,500K and 15,000K.
In addition, LightPanel can display arbitrary colours for creative lighting effects.
There are many other potential uses when you need extra light, eg torch, reading light, mood light, FaceTime calls etc.
Great for reusing old devices you have that can't run recent versions of iOS (eg iPad Air 1st gen & iPhone 5s onwards).
Light Panel Pro can be used as a lightbox or light table, for scanning slides & negatives or tracing artwork (on transparent enough paper):
A grid can be displayed to aid alignment on the light table.
The grid can be resized and moved around.
Mask mode as an alternative to the alignment grid for scanning negatives & slides.
Resize the mask to match the negative size.
Can help to prevent light leaks and flare.
Settings Lock: Controls can be locked to prevent accidental touches from changing settings.
Light Panel Pro is also great as a light for video calls, partcularly using the large screen of an iPad, Mac or TV.
Light Panel Pro is available as a universal purchase for:
iPad, iPhone & iPod Touch running iOS 12 or later.
Mac running MacOS 10.15 (Catalina) or later.
Apple TV running tvOS 15 or later.
Vision Pro (although as the app can't cast any light, its use is probably limited to being a controller for other devices).
The Mac version can be controlled with the TouchBar, menus & keyboard shortcuts in addition to the interface of the iOS version. Keyboard shortcuts also work in on iPads running iOS 13 or later with a hardware keyboard attached.
