Better lighting and other effects in Zoom

I’ve been waiting for a feature to compensate for poor lighting for a while. This and many more features now available in Zoom.

Feel even more video-ready with granular control over the intensity of your touch-ups and lighting adjustment, so you’re well-lit in any lighting. Change the brightness of your panel and amount of skin smoothing to put your best video frame forward!

These controls will never make up for having good lighting In the first place. I made a little image grid to show what a difference a simple light makes.

I wish the Mac had better built-in camera controls to adjust exposure, brightness and other factors that can affect the quality of the video. I currently use the app iGlasses to make these adjustments for my webinars but for security reasons this never worked in Zoom. I’m so pleased they added these extra features.
