Emphasizing the subject. That’s the main goal people have when they use the Radial Filter. But it actually has many other uses too—for things from editing just a selected part of a picture to adding color effects. Join us for a look at 5 common edits where the Radial Filter will help.
Gradient Filter functions are generally used for darkening or coloring the top of a photo—usually the sky. They basically replace a physical gradient filter that you’d place over your camera’s lens. But the Gradient Filter in ZPS X is also highly customizable and offers lots of creative opportunities.
You might find that a photo has a tilted horizon or converging lines that should be parallel. Don’t despair! You don’t need to delete these photos, just straighten them using Zoner Photo Studio.
It’s often handy to have your photo cropped to a wide format. 16:9 photos, for example, are very striking and very popular. But ordinary cropping has its downsides too. You simply will lose some of the photo; that’s a fact. But if you’re not ready for that, there’s fortunately one more option—you can simply stretch the photo in Zoner Photo Studio. Working this way, you can create a wide-angle picture using some simple steps. With no cropping or losses. Take a look at how to do it.
And it’s here! We’ve just released the 2020 autumn update to Zoner Photo Studio X. Besides a number of new features, it also offers many improvements to existing ones. In this article we’ll briefly summarize all the important things you can look forward to. Because there really are a lot of them. Everything you’ve wanted to know about the autumn update but were afraid to ask, you’ll learn riiight... now!
With the addition of Color Shift this year, ZPS X gained a great new tool for adjusting any color needed throughout a photo. But “just” enabling global edits throughout a whole photo wasn’t enough for us, and so we’ve added tools for changing colors locally as well. You can easily select any part of a photo to fine-tune its colors. And that’s not all. With the help of local color-curve editing, you can really bring a photo to perfection. Read on to learn how.
Every photographer wonders from time to time about whether they’ve edited a photo just right, or whether e.g. different colors would suit it better instead. And now with our new Variants, you don’t have to redo your whole edit only to find that your first try was the best. Variants let you create several virtual copies of a single photo and then edit them, and only then choose the best one. Quickly, easily, and without wasting disk space.
In our autumn update for 2020, we’ve worked hard on enhancing the popular Create module. We’ve unified the controls for creating photo products, and we’ve added some new tricks too. Additionally, you can order several photo products at once and pay shipping only once. Check out everything new you can look forward to in the Create module.
How can you as a photographer take inspiration from color toning in movies? We’ll use the examples of four famous movies to show you different styles of color grading. As you’ll see, colors have a fundamental impact on how we see movies. We’ll be looking at legends such as Saving Private Ryan, The Godfather, and The Matrix. Have you ever thought about the roles that color palettes play in them?
You’ve probably noticed the various popular photo styles, presets, and filters out there that give photos a retro look—as if you’d peeled them out of an old, dusty album. We’re fans of these too, and you’ll find some among our presets. You can encounter this vintage look not only in portraits and reportage, but in landscape photos too. But why do some people give fresh green landscapes an autumnal, parched look, like after a drought?
