Pros & Cons:

Superb design, excellent free slimmed down version of commercial software which works well for everyday use.
Missing some features in free version; tabs between manager, edit and view may not suit everyone.

Our Review:

Zoner Photo Studio Free is our Editors' Choice and it is a strong contender in the category of photo organizers.

I really like the look of Zoner: it has a professional feel. Within the software you can organize, edit and share your images and there are German, French, Italian and Russian versions.

It is a slimmed down version of the commercial ZPS which is available at a cost. I like the three major functions within the package - manager (organizer), viewer and editor.

These three functions are similarly provided in its mobile Android version for you to view, manage and edit photos on the go.

Personally I use a separate software package to do all but the simplest image manipulation such as an "edit" function, Zoner is fine, quick and intuitive.

Version 18 only offers "Rotate to match EXIF" in the "PRO" mode. Much as i need this capability, as a purely amateur photographer, i cannot justify paying $99 for the program to get only this function.

This version is just a bait to pro upgrade.
