WinZip Express for Photos (Snap and Share)

WinZip® Express for Photos, also called Snap and Share, makes it easy to download and store pictures, audio, and even video from your digital still camera, and then share them with others or save them to your PC or the cloud. WinZip's camera features can eliminate many of the steps required to retrieve and manage your pictures and can save you a large amount of storage space. Using WinZip Express for Photos, you can:

  • Download all the pictures and videos from your camera, or select only the ones you want.
  • Rotate your pictures so that they are properly oriented (your camera must provide support for this feature).
  • Optionally reduce image size, encrypt, or watermark your pictures.
  • Compress your pictures so they take up less space without any loss of picture quality.
  • Remove images from your camera after they have been downloaded.
  • Save the compressed pictures to your PC or the cloud, or share them with others using email or social media.

Note: WinZip Express for Photos is included with WinZip 19.5 and later. For earlier versions, download and install the free add-on.
