Software Division

The software division was founded in 1993, with at first the humble goal of providing Czech users with world-class graphics software in their own language. Thanks to its quality and domestic acclaim, this division’s software practically demanded localization into many major world languages. Today our flagship software, Zoner Photo Studio, a suite for managing, editing, and sharing digital photos, has enthusiastic customers worldwide. It is especially popular in Germany, Japan, Great Britain, the USA, Italy, and France.

As of 2011, this highly successful program is at version 13 and has passed the magic one million user mark worldwide. The software division is also taking great strides under its “I Love Photography” program to provide photo education to its users and to the public at large, presenting tips, news, and interesting facts from the world of photography. This means a lot of activity in the social networking world, above all at the Zoner blog,

Zoner Photo Studio has travelled a long road to the place where it is today. And Zoner Software, too, travelled a long road to its focus on digital photography. Our first programs focused mainly on vector graphics and barcoding, including the universal barcode maker Zoner Barcode Studio and the excellent vector graphics editor Zoner Callisto, which even won Finalist Best of Show at the world-famous CEBIT IT fair.
With the rise of digital photography came a rise in the need for software that can process ever greater numbers of photos. The company’s development team took note of this new challenge, and rose to it. The first versions of this comprehensive digital photography software bore the name Zoner Media Explorer, but as it became ever more clear that photography is the key, there came a switch to a new name now known to hundreds of thousands of users around the world - Zoner Photo Studio.
