Editors' Note: Zoner Photo Studio 15 offers a free version with limited functionality from within the program. Otherwise the trial of the full version will expire after 30 days.
Zoner Photo Studio is your one-stop solution for downloading and backing up photos, correcting and removing defects, adding creative effects, organizing and tagging your collection, and sharing your unique artistic sense. This beginner-friendly toolkit will have you getting results quickly with aids like the first run wizard, the new Quick Edits bar, and quick-publishing tools for all the ways you want to share. Downloading into neatly organized folders is now just a matter of hooking up your camera. And naturally getting pictures onto Facebook, Picasa, the Zonerama sharing service, and more is a snap. Bring in whole batches of RAW photos at once with custom edits in the state-of-the-art RAW module. Take advantage of top-of-the-line noise reduction. Maintain maximum quality from start to finish with color management and 48-bit color. Make managing and publishing photo information easy with seamless, silent support for EXIF, IPTC, and XMP. And get the most out of your computer with support for SSE, MMX, multiple cores, 64-bit computing, and GPU acceleration.
Take control over exposure with filters like Levels and Curves, or use features like Quick Fix to let the program do the work. This powerful tool is a great alternative to Adobe Photoshop for all but the most demanding edits. You'll enjoy the workflow, but you know the outputs are the point. We give you countless ways to do it, from 3D photos to panoramas to the impressive new Tilt-shift Effect tool. But of course it all means nothing if it isn't shared, and this photo software has it all in that department too, from paper to CD and DVD to Zonerama web galleries so easy, you'll think you're working on your own disk.
