DrTeeth The v17 Pro deal is very good. So good I am glad I did not upgrade to v18! I will just wait and get it for free sometime in the future on BdJ! This is a kick in the teeth for those that have supported Zoner over the years IMHO.

Zoner Software Hello Ricky, Assabes User,

This free giveaway can only be installed during the giveaway time of this limited-time free giveaway. It can be used from then on until you reinstall it. It cannot be reinstalled if you uninstall it after the giveaway, and it cannot be used on a different computer. (We also don't have a support guarantee on giveaways, by the way, and no discounted-upgrade guarantee as well.)

This is fairly standard for giveaways. We can assure you it is not part of an evil plan!

Hello DrTeeth,

We have been running Giveaways since forever, and they've always been highly restricted compared to paid versions - see above.

All in all we can only ask people looking at the question from each of these quite opposite directions to see how our middle ground might be fair!

Quill Pen Giveaways like this are much appreciated by most visitors, Zoner. It really is SOP for vendors to offer software with a narrow window for registration (almost always just 24 hours) BUT then allow you to USE it until your PC dies or your hard drive crashes.

Sadly, that is what happened to us in December, so we have to visit every day to try and rebuild a fine 6-year collection of excellent free software that we simply could never afford otherwise. Thank you for being the first one back in our toolchest! (assuming I can successfully jump through the download hoops... always unpredictable with BDJ)

Now, without sounding greedy -cough- hoping Ken Carlino & Pixarra offers TwistedBrush v.19 (or dare I hope maybe 20) real SOON. xxx

Martin Duck To those with Windows 10:
When you go to download the software Windows 10 will advise against it. The only reason it does this is because it is not a recognized Win 10 App.
Download anyway. It's perfectly safe.
When you go to install it a message will pop up again. Click "Ignore" and install.

Works perfectly. I upgraded from Zoner 16. After installing open Zoner 17. Click "Manager" and let your JPEGs, RAW files, etc. load up.

Uninstall Zoner 16 completely (do not click any of the boxes that come up when you uninstall...thumbnails, etc).

Enjoy :)

jman First, many thanks to Zoner and BDJ!

I don't understand people complaining about having to install/register the software within 7 days. Huh? Most giveaways require that you install the same day so giving a week is actually being generous! That said...

At the end of installation when the Zoner window states "Finishing installation", I get a Windows error pop-up stating "Program has stopped working...". My only option is to click the "close program" button which I do. I tried the install 3 times and the same issue occurs each time. The desktop icon is created and I can launch and register the program and it seems to be working. Beyond that, I am not sure how I can verify that the full install completed correctly. I am running Win 10 Home 64-bit.
Feb 9 2016 at 6:30am Copy Link
Zoner Software Hello,

You have questions, we have answers!

Joe User: the most likely reason for the file-is-corrupt message is that the installer file literally is corrupt, that is, that there was some distortion during the download or the download was incomplete, so first try deleting the installer you downloaded and downloading it again.

TJ - we offer permanent upgrade discounts (and various one-time special offers) for our customers, but not for users of the Giveaway.

jboy - regarding the crash during the installation, it’s hard to say what happened from over here, but as long as the program is working correctly, it seems that it wasn’t critical.

Jim Buchanan Hi. I like your program and have had it (v15) for a bit as can be told from the version. My little question is fairly simple, I think. I haven't changed over to Win10 as of yet but intend to very soon. After I install ZP17 will there be an issue with it after I then install win10? MS can be so **** (put your own words in there) sometimes.

L Spark I bought this some time ago. I upgraded to version 18. While I use many different image editing programs, this is an excellent one to choose if you are going to just have one. It is a very versatile and competent piece of software. I would suggest grabbing this while you can.
Feb 9 2016 at 9:10am Copy Link
Jim Buchanan I have a different problem regarding my email. For some unknown reason Bits du jour has problems sending things to me through my regular email and because of it, I have lost out on some deals. So I changed my email address to a different one which I only look at every so often. Hence, when I got your program I noticed that the email that is associated with it is not the email I want to use. How can I initalize the program if my email that I have with you (Zoner Studios) is different from that which is associated with the downloaded program? I really don't want to change my email with ZS just to get it working because I know how many emails I get from you guys with great hints - not support just hints. I would forget to get them.

c p Hope you can help.
Zoner has become my most-used & favourite software.
I have Zoner Pro 15 which I love and use all the time. I think it was from Giveawayoftheday. I then got Zoner Pro 16, from either yourselves or GOTD, can't recall (I only download free stuff from BDJ or GOTD - both excellent and trustworthy sites!)
Both versions are installed side by side without problems
My question is: Can I install ZP17 alongside them so I have the three versions?
If I have to, I will remove ZP16 as I don't use it as much, but I def don't want to lose my trusty ZP15, not at the moment anyway. However, if ZP17 'shines' I will replace Z15!

A brilliant giveaway folks which I highly recommend. Many, many thanks to BDJ and Zoner!

Hans User Zoner Photo Studio 17 is a top-quality photo editor for creative work with your photos. As a beginner I like to start each edit with the Shadows and Lights sliders to expand the range of each image as far as possible. I found that – by moving the Shadows slider in the Editor from 0 to 80 - Many photos can be greatly improved, as many details in the dark and black areas of the image will become visable! I just tried to edit 20 photo’s, which were made on a stage with spot lights and darker areas. It seems that you have to apply this shadows edit to one picture at a time. My question to Zoner: Is it possible to use the Batch Filter function in the Zoner Editor to apply this Shadows edit (from 0 to 80) at once to all the pictures in the Batch. Thank you Zoner and Bits du Jour!

Robert Crombie Constantin Florea,
Yes I did get a confirmation on your web page, but I would sleep easier if the program also indicated that it was registered.
Alternatively -
I could live with 'a heads up' such as - If it were not registered then you would see the word 'Trial' or a count down to number of days remaining.
Is there such an indication in the program for those that have not registered ?
Feb 10 2016 at 2:31am Copy Link
Zoner Software Hello,

Here are answers to your questions from overnight.

Multiple users: This software ***DOES NOT REQUIRE a license code, registration number, or anything similar***, and therefore this software does not come with these. This is normal, OK, and how it's supposed to work.

For four indications of activation (though not registration, as there is no in-program registration), check:
* the text bubble when you move over the icon at the top left (it will say Zoner Photo Studio 17 PRO or Zoner Photo Studio 17 PRO x64, because this is the PRO edition, which means that your software is activated)
* the title bar when the program window isn't maximized - see above
* the Help > About window - it will contain the word "PRO" in the version text. (The full text will likely be "version 17 (Build 12) PRO", but I'm not 100% certain on the build.)
* the word PRO towards the top.

The program says PRO in these places because it *is activated*.

Jim Buchanan: Upgrading to Windows 10 after installing Zoner Photo Studio should be without issue.

Regarding the program: the difference in emails will not be a problem.

c p: Installing different version numbers side-by-side is no problem.

Hans User: Absolutely everything that can be done to pictures from the Manager part of the program can be done on multiple pictures at once, even when you're not using the Batch Filter. Just select the pictures you want, and use the edit you want.
The Batch Filter "adds on top of that" to enable also stringing multiple edits together into one, in addition to, as always, working on multiple selected photos at once.

han tuah: If you are using Internet Explorer for the download, try re-doing the download in another browser. In certain situations, downloads via Explorer can stay the same even when you try to re-download - a frustrating sort of second-guessing on Microsoft's part. If that does not help, please write again!

Quill Pen Thankfully, all went well and I've been able to add Zoner.

One of the truly troubling aspects of the way certain vendors handle free upgrades (and my only complaint about TwistedBrush) is that they don't allow side-by-side installs of new versions.

IMHO it really should be OUR decision when to remove an old yet fully-functioning version because so often a new version either won't install, has a corrupt install, has crippled features, etc. If a new version destroys the old version and then won't work or work as it did previously, you're out of luck, especially if the timer runs out before you realize there's a problem. Not sure why an older version has to be destroyed. It's not like it can be sold or used by someone else.

Ron Cavin I have the same problem as Bob Romanzo and Larry Futrell:
after downloading and installing the program says there is no license connected to the account. I have had a Zoner account for a number of years, and a BdJour account since 2013. I read and followed the instructions in the pdf, the Zoner site confirmed my long-standing account. So what's wrong?
I haven't used BdJour for quite a while because of these never ending hassles and complications with installing/registering the software offered.
To add insult to injury, I had a perfectly good working installation of Zoner Photo Studio (forget which version), but lost it when I had to change to a newer PC to run Windows 10. Seems to me that when you own a program, you should OWN it, not have it vanish without warning after you've gotten accustomed to relying on it.
But that's a discussion for another day. So what's up? Do I have a license for this thing or don't I ?!
Feb 10 2016 at 8:26am Copy Link
Larry Futrell Thank you Zoner Software for the response to my issue. Apparently the software is activated for me, as it reports PRO in all of the places you listed. I was mislead because when I logged in and then clicked on PRO followed by my email address on the menu bar, one of the options shown is "Activate License..." and when I click that the panel for activation is shown, implying that the product is not activated. I assume that option and that panel are present in case I want to reactivate with a different license, but in that case I would have expected the "Activate License..." menu option to have been changed once the product had been activated to something like "Change License..." . Anyway, thanks for the fine product, and thanks again for your help.

TJ Zoner: Is there a discount on the upgrade to v18?
Feb 10 2016 at 8:48am Copy Link
Ron Cavin Yes, my copy now also reports "Pro", but I still don't understand why the web site reports "no license found". Wouldn't it be more user-friendly to indicate "no license required" or something similar for a pre-licensed software? Or perhaps gray out the "activate" option if the software is already activated? Most of us, I feel, like the assurance that what we have installed is genuine and valid, and the statement when accessing our account that "no license found for the product" does not inspire much confidence.

Zoner Software On to another round of answers. :-)

Ken User: Zoner Photo Studio 17 can browse pretty much any NEF and show it in the Editor as well, but to develop it in the RAW module, you’ll need to either have NEF from a camera we natively support, or expand our support. Looks like you’re using a camera we don’t natively support, so here’s a link to a guide on expanding our support:

Regarding licensing: again, no license is found, because none exists, because none is needed. Thus efforts to dig for a license and similar quests will naturally lead to messages like “No license found.”

Every year we try to state even more clearly than the last that people are getting a pre-activated, license-free, license-less product... I’m open to suggestions on how to state it even more clearly, though.

Scott Youngman @ Zoner Software - First, let me thank you for this excellent offer on ZPS 17 Pro. It is because of your free versions in the past that I learned about and started to use ZPS, and now recommend it to friends.

Regarding the confusion about activation, the instructions for how to install the software (provided via a link in the receipt from BdJ) should be clear enough, particularly point 3 which says "Run Zoner Photo Studio 17 and log in. Your PRO version is now active."

Nevertheless, it is unusual for a Pro version of software to be valid without a license (even though the instructions say exactly that). Plus we all have an ingrained expectation that we must enter something somewhere to register a product. So when I saw the "Activate License" link in the dropdown list from the login box in the menu bar, I focused on the word "activate" and disregarded the "license" part.

Now I understand that link allows me to activate a license if I should purchase one in the future; it is not needed or relevant for activating this limited offer. Perhaps that information could be added to the instructions at point 3.

Darren Anton WARNING! They want you to have a "Zoner Account" Whats up with that crap? Does not sound good at all I will not be installing spam crap!
Feb 10 2016 at 2:55pm Copy Link
Scott Youngman @ Darren Anton - Well there are both good and "spam" accounts out there. I don't think it's fair to characterize every one as an automatic baddie. Many honest retailers maintain legitimate user accounts.

Based on several years of personal experience with ZPS, I can say that Zoner's account system is entirely safe and even useful. For one thing, it tracks licenses so you always have access to them; this makes it easy to install, reinstall, or move the software. I agreed to receive notices of special sales, also to receive useful photography tips -- but I can unsubscribe at any time. I have never received spam or any other junk from them.

Zoner creates quality software which they have worked hard to develop and improve. Why would they jeopardize their reputation by abusing their mailing list? And if you suspect their motives, consider that this offer for ZPS Pro 17 is truly generous (even if limited in a minor way). Plus they offer periodic discuounts and many useful free tutorials on their website.

Even if you _paid_ for ZPS, you would need to establish a Zoner account. So Zoner isn't trying to rip anybody off with this offer. They are simply being generous, and I for one really appreciate that.

Robert Crombie Susie,
Are you referring to the one given away free ?
They included a PDF file saying thsi -
How to install the Zoner Photo Studio 17 PRO Giveaway:  
1. Download the installer file and run it.  
2. If you don’t have a Zoner Account, create one at  ? 
3. Run Zoner Photo Studio 17 and log in. Your PRO version is now active.  
 Important: You do not need a license code (registration number, etc.), and you will not 
receive a license code. Your software will be activated immediately once you’ve 
created and logged in to your ZONER account.  

If you have installed the free giveaway, try the above " create one at ? "
If you are quick there is a chance that the site will still be available
