Recommended System Requirements for Zoner Photo Studio 18

A computer meeting these requirements guarantees easy work in Zoner Photo Studio 18. These are not the minimum system requirements.

Processor (CPU)
We recommend a 64-bit, 4-core processor running at 3GHz or higher. This software is fully optimized for work with multi-core processors.

Graphics Card (GPU)
Zoner Photo Studio uses the full power of your graphics card thanks to CUDA and OpenCL.

Graphics card memory is important for work with large photos. We recommend at least 2 GB of graphics card memory.

Two examples of suitable graphics cards as of September 2015 are the AMD Radeon R9 and the NVidia GeForce 750 GTX Ti.

Memory
We recommend at least 4 GB of memory.

Hard Disk
We recommend installing ZPS on an SSD drive. This will make it load and run very fast. The SSD disk market is still developing rapidly, so check the latest reviews to make your choice.

Operating System
Use a modern, 64-bit operating system to harness the full power of the recommended 64-bit CPU.
