ZPS X Autumn
2017 Update

In the fourth ZPS X update—on its first anniversary—two blockbusters await you: adjustment layers and a non-destructive retouching brush. We have a good dozen improvements for you, and ZPS X is the first in the world to provide several of them.

Even if you’ve already tried ZPS X, you’ll get 10 fresh new days to explore the new features.

Improve your retouching with a unique new brush


The Develop module now includes a retouching brush, in full splendor:

  1. The brush automatically finds the source area for retouching.
  2. You can make every brush stroke (or group of them) on a separate mask.
  3. This lets you clearly organize your work into e.g. retouching of shadows, birthmarks, or wrinkles.
  4. You can always revert or delete all of these retouching edits.
  5. For details, see a thorough tutorial at learn.zoner.com.

The combination of masks and multiple strokes within each one is unique worldwide. You’ll only find it in ZPS X!


Edit faster with adjustment layers


Adjustment layers will help you pick the best edit quickly and easily. Just place the adjustment you want (exposure, white balance, etc.) in its own layer. This layer affects the layer, or layers, below it. So you can adjust multiple layers at once. This also rids you of the often tiresome job of duplicating layers, editing them, and then comparing them.

Set your memories in motion with video


Include video and add photos and music, and you’ve got a great video presentation from your vacation or celebration in minutes. The ZPS X video creation tool has matured to become a reliable helper for sharing your experiences.

With a drawing tablet, you’ve got ZPS X under your thumb


We have a treat in store for those of you with drawing tablets. ZPS X now supports pen pressure in both the Editor and Develop. So you can use your tablet for non-destructive brush edits as well. ZPS X is also first in the world to let you adjust up to four settings with a single application of pressure, making your work easier than ever before.

We’ve simplified your work with contact sheets. In the new editor, you can see real photo previews right from the start. You also can make use of our templates with the most commonly used layouts.
