[VIDEO] Editing portraits with Zdenka Povolen 


In this video, Zdenka will demonstrate the entire editing process in Zoner Photo Studio X using one of her photos from a spring photoshoot. If you’re a beginner, this video is a great introduction to ZPS X and will show you everything the program can do. And if you’ve been around the block once or twice, you may see some tricks that you didn’t know about. Let‘s get right to it! 

We will be primarily working in the Develop module of Zoner Photo Studio X. For more advanced adjustments, we will move to the Editor module. If you’d like to learn more about the functions covered in the video, we recommend reading additional articles from our magazine. In addition to basic information about ZPS X, you’ll also get valuable tips from the field:

  • Tools for local edits are also sure to come in handy. Read our articles about the Filter Brush (B), Radial (R), or Gradient (G) filter.
  • For simple adjustments or to completely change the colors in your photo, use Color Shift. These adjustments can also be done locally. For instance, when you only want to change the color of one object.
  • Unsharp or grainy photos? Fix them using sharpening or noise reduction tools.
  • When you’re all done editing in the Develop module, conveniently export your photo, or multiple sizes of your photo at once.

I haven’t been a photographer for long, but I certainly love taking photos. I like creating atmosphere in my photographs and adding emotion. I think it’s important that a photo has substance. I predominantly photograph people, often in costumes, sometimes nudes, and photographic storytelling series. I value effective communication and a pleasant atmosphere in my photoshoot. I like to use practical effects such as smoke, fire, sparks, light, or movement of cloth and fabric. I know that I still have a lot to learn, but that will come with 20 years of experience under my belt. I believe in lifelong self-improvement.
