Powerful Tools – Combine for Creative Effect – Easy to Save

Many image filters, such as white balance, exposure correction, unsharp mask, are available to enhance your images. All editing steps are non-destructive because only individual tool settings are stored in a database. This way, the original image remains always intact.

Image Archiving

Your Personal Import Assistant

The Load Assistant guides you with the importing of images to the image archive from various media, including Cameras, USB flash drives, CD/DVD and hard disks.

Previously imported files are automatically deselected to avoid duplication.


Quick Search

Locate images by searching for specific texts in individual or all descriptors.

Organize your StudioLine workspace to best suit your various uses. You can save the optimal settings for each different activity.

You can quickly find images by the content of their EXIF and IPTC descriptors or populate them for standards-based data interchange.

Copies and shortcuts to your images require no additional disk space in the image archive. This way you can include any photo in more than one folder.


Choose export settings most suitable for a particular application (e.g., slide presentation on TV). Frequently used settings can be saved.
