Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Sep 30, 2014

Zoner Photo Studio 17 surpasses other premium photo and graphics suites with great functionality, plenty of features, and an intuitive layout.

Pros

Intuitive organization: Zoner Photo Studio's modular interface opens with the default Manager view, which places tabs at the top, as well as the Import, Viewer, Editor, and RAW modules.

Helper programs: You can designate a helper program for every file format Zoner Photo Studio handles.

Monitor calibration: A built-in monitor-calibration tool ensures accurate color rendering and shading.

Good stuff: Zoner Photo Studio has too many features and extras to list. Some standouts: Audio Notes, 3D and Panorama image capability, JPEG extraction from files, custom keywords, and geotagging (including GPS data from Google Earth).

Cons

Too different: Some users might find Zoner Photo Studio's way of doing things a bit too different for an easy transition.

Bottom Line

Zoner Photo Studio 17 stands out from competing photo and graphics editors in the $90 range, which serves both pros and skilled amateurs. Its useful extras and intuitive layout make it more than just another Photoshop clone.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Zoner Photo Studio 17. The trial version is limited to 30 days.

Developer's Description

Download, organize, and edit your photos and share them via photo products. All this simply, quickly, and in one place! What's Best About Zoner Photo Studio: one single place for all your work with photos; dozens of editing tools, with support for layers; dozens of effects and filters; non-destructive edits for every image format; batch operations that save lots of time. Import (download) photos onto your computer in just a few seconds. ZPS will detect your device and sort your photos, and can even back them up for you immediately. You can keep on working normally during the import. ZPS even has commands for bringing in pictures from a PDF or a scanner. Organize your photo archive however you prefer and browse photos by their location, date taken, keywords, or folders. Add descriptions, GPS coordinates, keywords, colored labels, ratings, and more easily. They'll save you lots of time searching for pictures later. With batch operations, all this goes even faster. And above all, none of it ever changes the organization that you choose for your photos. Non-destructive edits are edits you can take back at any time, and they never degrade your photos. Find them in the Develop module: from exposure and color adjustments, to straightening, cropping. The Editor module offers many ways to edit your photos. The sky's the limit. ZPS X offers work with layers, retouching, blending modes, color and exposure correction, smart sharpening and blurring, dehazing, Dodge & Burn brushes, HDR, perspective correction, cropping, automatic edits, lens flare, a radial filter, improved noise reduction, cloning of objects, various filters. Show off your creations in just a few clicks. Besides sharing over social networks and e-mail, you can also use ZPS to work with photos stored on your Facebook account, Google Disk, Dropbox, or OneDrive. Naturally our Zonerama on-line gallery is integrated too. Present your photos using the built-in full-screen viewer, or even via our video maker. Turn your photos into gifts (books, calendars, canvas prints, and many more stylish objects) for your loved ones from right inside of ZPS X. Or send them a ZPS photo postcard.
