PRESS RELEASE: Zoner Software Launches Zoner Photo Studio 13
(Brno, Czech Republic, December 7th, 2010)—Zoner Software, the innovative graphics software company, has released the latest version of Zoner Photo Studio, the photo management, editing, and sharing software for Windows.
The new version brings above all a significant increase in speed for all operations thanks to multi-core optimizations, an improved catalog, easier work with two monitors, and easier photo sharing. "Every new feature found in the program is inspired by suggestions from our global community," said Managing Director, Pavel Minar. Zoner Photo Studio is the world's first photo manager to provide official support for 10-bit color output per channel. This support enables users with compatible graphics cards and displays to view images at 10 bits per color channel, for a total of 30 bits of color sent to the monitor.
The latest version of Zoner Photo Studio has brought a complete implementation of transparency in the Editor, including the new Eraser tool. Also new is the Healing Brush, and several other tools have new features and options, or optimized algorithms.
One highly requested new addition was the postcard maker, which is highly configurable and can use any combination of pictures. Advanced users will definitely appreciate the HDR tool's new ability to work with pictures taken without a tripod, which it derives from our new multi-exposures technology. This same technology can be used for removing noise or moving objects from a picture.
Web photo sharing is becoming more and more popular. Zoner Photo Studio 13 brings a new feature in this area: uploaders for Facebook, Flickr, and Picasa Web Albums. "We try to make the whole process as easy as possible for our users, from taking pictures, to managing them, to editing them, to sharing them. You just select the picture to share, use the function for the network you want, and your photos are uploaded straight to," said Sales and Marketing Director, Jaroslav Kucek.
