Zoner Photo Studio is a software application developed by Zoner Software. It includes a bitmap editor and image file manager used for editing digital photographs. It is used in its country of origin (Czech Republic) and around the world.[4][5] A new version is published annually.

As of 2022, this software is available for the Windows operating system.



In 2004, Zoner Media Explorer was renamed Zoner Photo Studio because the product focus switched to strictly digital photography.

Version 12 introduced the program's division into modules: Manager, Viewer, Editor, and raw module, to increase the ease of working simultaneous with photo management,editing, etc. It added a default charcoal gray interface, intended to ease photo viewing.

  • Version 15 added an Import module.
  • Version 16 completed the Editor's switch to using the Side Panel.
  • Version 17 revamped the raw module and made the Catalog more central to the Manager.
  • Version 18 brought a major interface change. The five modules were merged into three: Manager, Develop, and Editor. Develop enables non-destructive edits to raw files and other supported files.
