FIRST EXPOSURE BY STAN SHOLIK
ZONER PHOTO STUDIO 17
Significant changes, updates and tools have enhanced this post-production software.
While Zoner Photo Studio is now in its
17th version, I must confess that I have
somehow missed the first 16. I can only
attribute this to the fact that Zoner is a Windows-only
image-editing program and one that has somehow
flown under my radar since 2004. But Zoner Photo
Studio 17, available for 32- and 64-bit Windows
computers and priced at $89, looked interesting
when it was pointed out to me. Especially when the
press release announced that it’s being referred to
as an “excellent alternative to Lightroom.” Fact?
ABOVE: Other than RAW file conversion, you do all of your image correction and enhancement in the Editor module.
There is a large collection of Quick Filter presets available.
