Editing an Image
If the brightness or color of images is different from what you visualized
when you shot the photo, you can adjust an image using the editing
functions to bring them closer to what you visualized.
This section explains about automatic adjustment of images, adjustment
of brightness, saturation and contrast, trimming images, inserting text
into images, adjustment of sharpness and red-eye correction.
JPEG images deteriorate slightly when edited and saved, and the image
before editing cannot be recovered. For this reason, an edited JPEG
image should be saved as a separate image from the original image.

Performing Advanced Editing
Introduction
This section explains image editing using high-level functions based on
the assumption that you are familiar with handling standard image
editing software.
JPEG images deteriorate slightly when edited and saved, and the image
before editing cannot be recovered. For this reason, an edited JPEG
image should be saved as a separate image from the original image.

RAW images to JPEG or TIFF images and save them.
Because only the image processing conditions are changed when a
RAW image is adjusted, the original image data remains totally
unaffected. For this reason, image deterioration that usually
accompanies editing does not occur and you can readjust, redo or undo
changes knowing that you can always revert to the original shot

Troubleshooting
Deleting the Software (Uninstalling)
If ZB is not operating correctly, refer to the items below.
Also refer to the Help from the [Help] menu or click the [?] button at the
top of each window and refer to the Help displayed.
Installation could not be completed correctly
You cannot install the software if a user setting other than [Computer
administrator] privilege or [Administrator] privilege is selected. Select
the [Computer administrator] privilege user setting in Windows XP or
the [Administrator] privilege user setting in Windows 2000. For
detailed information on selecting the user setting, refer to your
computer User’s Manual.

ZB does not operate correctly on a computer if its system
requirements does not meet. Use ZB on a computer with compatible
system requirements (p.72).
Even if your computer has the RAM capacity (memory) described in
the system requirements (p.72), if other applications are running at
the same time as ZB, you may not have sufficient RAM (memory).
Exit any applications other than ZB.
Images do not display properly
Exit any applications before uninstalling the software.
Log in under the Computer administrator/Administrator privileges
when uninstalling the software.
To prevent computer malfunctions, always restart your computer after
you have uninstalled the software. Re-installing the software without
first restarting your computer is particularly likely to result in computer
malfunctions.
Images that are not supported by ZB (p.72) do not display. There are
various types of JPEG and TIFF images, so JPEG images other than
Exif 2.2 and 2.21 compatible images and TIFF images other than Exif
compatible images may not display properly.
With initial settings, the color of images that have been shot in Adobe
RGB appear weak. In this case, check the [General] tab sheet in
preferences and checkmark [Adjust color of images using monitor
profile] (p.66). Color management is performed and the color of the
image shot with an Adobe RGB setting and the image shot with an
sRGB setting are matched.
The software is uninstalled.
