Lighting Diagram Sheet G-1.x for Photoshop

After long hours, days, weeks and months learning InkSkape, I've finally managed to create my own set of objects for the future version of the Online Lighting Diagrams Creator for photographers. I'm very happy to announce the release of the Lighting Diagram Sheet version G-1.0 (G for Grey beams). For those who are new, there was a question regarding which color set I should use for the light beams, see the poll here . Recently the poll showed a higher number of votes for the white beams versions, but I've decided to release both 3 versions of the Lighting Diagram Sheet. So be patient...

Download this PSD file, unzip and open it with Photoshop or The GIMP. Enable/Disable layers and move/rotate the objects.

I will ASAP extract those objects and update the online diagram tool.

Again thank you to all of you that supported or contributed this project.

I hope you will find this useful.

 Note:  This document might get updated so don't forget to come back and check from time to time.

Your donation is greatly appreciated.

The Online Lighting Diagram Creator is a personal project that requires a lot of resources to be developed and maintained. But I believe in the strength of a community when everyone contributes to the knowledge of the group that is why I want to make this tool available free of charge to all non-commercial projects.

If you use the OLDC and are happy with it, I'd love if you would consider donating. Donations help keep the updates coming, pay for hosting, and help pay for the time spent maintaining and improving the tool. Donations are entirely voluntary but are greatly appreciated.

A minimum donation of $10 USD is asked for each commercial project (except the use on a photographer website, blog or gallery). For more detail please contact me .

Thanks so much. What a great tool.


Thank you for the work you've put into this. And thank you for making it available!!!


Very handy. Thank you for making it available to the online community.

I too would love to see the output made available in SVG format. Diagrams are much more useful as vector graphics.

light table

Please consider adding a light table to your diagram for us product shooters that use one.


Thank you for sharing.
The world is a better place thanks people like you who share your work, creations and knowledge.

Congratulations. This is a great work.

Light Beam

For what is it worth, why not a grey background and multiple lighting setups? White beams for ungelled lights, then a yellow or orange set, and maybe a blue set for the typical colour correction gels?

Another vote for Inkscape

The .svg file would be great as Inkscape seems to be better suited for diagrams.


Made in inkscape? Any chance of having the .svg files available as well? Inkscape really feels like a better tool for diagramming than Photoshop/Gimp.
