Zoner Photo Studio Free is the perfect photo software for the photographer who wants stunning filters without the steep learning curve associated with other software. Amateur photographers might not want to learn large, photo-manipulation software to get beautiful pictures. They don't want to spend dozens of hours learning software they might only use occasionally.

There are three sections of the Zoner Photo Studio: the manager, the viewer and the editor. Each has a very distinct purpose.

Organization

It can be hard to organize photos. Once they are uploaded to the computer, they are put into a folder with the date. Most of the time, the photos are never seen again. If you want to find a picture of your niece from three years ago, you'll have to try to remember the date, or which folder had the picture. The manager has the ability to organize photos easily. It also keeps backups so that your photos will never get lost.

Photo Viewer

The viewer allows the user to see all their photographs in one stunning window. Once the photos are organized, it's a simple matter of finding the labels to view different scenes. The photos can also be emailed.

Editing

The editor does simple tasks like remove red eye, change color levels and resize. There are also buttons that will automatically make the image sharper and stronger. There's also a clone stamp for simple manipulations. It's easy to correct exposures. There's also a batch auto correct feature that will allow the user to make simple corrections to all their photos. This can be great for pictures that are too low light. With a few clicks, the editor can be programed to perform the same process for a series of photos.

Pros

  • The Zoner Photo Studio Free has a powerful management system that will make storing, tagging and finding photos simple.
  • Photo edits are quick and simple for the beginner who wants simple red eye correction or picture resizing.
  • It allows easy sharing with social media accounts like Facebook, Picasa and Flickr.
  • The Zoner Photo Studio Free handles many camera formats as well as jpeg, gif, bitmap, png and RAW formats.

Cons

  • There are no layers for more advanced photo corrections and manipulations.

The Zoner Photo Studio Free has won awards from many sources for its software, which is easy for a beginner who wants to sort and store photographs to the amateur or semi-professional who wants to do slight manipulations and corrections with ease.
