Editors' Review

Free photo and image tools are getting so sophisticated they more than rival expensive premium tools. Case in point is Zoner Photo Studio Free, an up-to-date graphics app that is packed with features. It can sort and manage image libraries; resize, enhance, and correct images; create albums, slideshows, calendars, panoramas, and other displays; and upload your images to popular photo-sharing sites. It incorporates full-featured Browser and Editor functions, but it also works with a wide range of other photo tools.

Zoner Photo Studio offers Standard and Custom Installation options; we chose the standard installation. A First Run Wizard walked us through the steps of setting up Zoner, though the program can also import settings from previous installations, if available. The setup options included file-type associations, destination folders, whether the program should open images in the Browser or Editor views, and whether or not to integrate it with Windows. We could change these and other settings at any time on Zoner's Preferences menu. Zoner's Browser interface sports the dark-gray tones, white font, and tree-view navigator typical of modern graphics apps, but there's also an interesting built-in folder view in the main window. Zoner handles layers, offers autocorrect functions on its Quick Fix menu, and features a palette of tools such as clone stamps, a morphing mesh tool, red-eye correction, and other useful effects. It works much like other graphics and photo editors, too; although it doesn't resemble Photoshop as closely as some of its competition, many of the functions, controls, and options will be familiar to anyone who's spent much time with similar programs. We browsed to and opened an image and quickly applied a variety of tools and effects to it in the Editor, including watermarks, brush strokes, and cropping. Zoner can use EXIF data to sort image collections automatically. One surprising but nifty extra is the ability to assign GPS data to images using Google Earth.

Zoner Photo Studio Free has all the tools and options to satisfy most users, even pros. It has a stylish interface, well-configured controls, excellent Help and Tutorials, and more settings and features than we can address in this space. Definitely recommended.

"Fabulous Free Photo Editor from Zoner"

September 02, 2011  |  By Bebzy

 |  Version: Zoner Photo Studio Free 13

Pros

It's absolutely free!
Easy to download and install
Friendly for novice photo editor, at least for me
Makes my pictures look like professional work!
Lots of tools for special effects.
Comprehensive, well-organized documentation

Cons

It's going to take me quite a while to learn everything it can do, but that would be true for any program this sophisticated. If you are new to photo editing, you may have to do some digging to find out what some words mean. Easy enough online.

Summary

You won't believe what you can do with this program, and you can't beat the price! I've had the free version only a few days, and have produced some remarkable results. I'll probably buy the newest version before too long. On a scale of 1-10, this is at least a 12!
