Lomography has launched the DigitaLIZA Lab for photographers to fine tune film scans quickly.

The web-based tool allows photographers to upload film scans – either negative or positive – and fine tune them before sharing them online.

“This free tool works with any device and allows you to convert all types of film including colour negative, black and white, LomoChrome, and slide film in just a few short steps,” Lomography said (via PetaPixel)

Users upload their film scan, which can then be inverted if the scan is a negative. The upload can then be edited by adjusting both the black and white point. Each scan can be adjusted differently.

When uploading black-and-white film, the DigitaLIZA features a desaturation button that will erase any slight colour casts from black-and-white scans.

Once all adjustments have been made, the file can be saved using the download button. There is no batch scan function, but images from the same film should be able to be scanned with the same setting, Lomography said.

The Austrian analogue photography brand said the new web app complements its existing DigitaLIZA scanning mask and the DigitaLIZA Max, which includes a smartphone holder to allow you to scan using a mobile phone.

Lomography has also produced a step-by-step guide to using the app which you can see below.

Been trying this out and it works pretty well, although I still have to take the images into Snapseed to done some final adjustments.

Would be nicer if it was a phone app.
