Zoner 18 ZPS

I got the new Zoner 18 ZPS yesterday for free with a license that covers all of my computers...
I have been test driving Zoner software since #1. It was a pleasant surprise to see an email from Erik Piper with the downloads and license in my in-box yesterday...

so I had a little time to play with some quick, down and dirty, PP....

this is what I started with (images shot with canon 6d and tokina 16-24 f2)...

this is a jpg image from the cr.2 file...

edit #1 in color


and this is a B&W from same image...

the new zoner looks like Lr 6 and pretty much runs the same way except it has all of the editing power and tools of cs6 all rolled into one...
it is also a 16 bit processer rather than just an 8 bit like PSE or some others...

I have been test driving Lr6 for a week now and like it....
I hated Lr3....

but I do like the Zoner 18 and at the price, it is unbeatable...

for those of you that are looking for an alternative to adobe products, I'd jump on the Zoner 18 in a heart beat...

    Agreed. The Zoner Photo Suite has been very good for a LONG time. I have been pushing it for several years on this forum.

    Yes, basically the same as Lr.

    I can only hope that Zoner comes out with a video editor soon.

    erik told me that zoner is working on a video module....
    that would be a first and I believe a good, user friendly software that doesn't break the bank...

    I just came home from a bar scene with a great band made up of 60ish old dudes I grew up with and would liked to have shot some 1080 on...
    I'd have needed a good mic and a huge card to shoot, but it would have been fun....
