Editors' review

Ashampoo Photo Commander 12 offers good value as an all-in-one photo editor and manager for Windows. It can repair, resize, and optimize digital snapshots, add effects, create albums and slideshows, organize and share images and folders, and a lot more. Photo Commander 12 is more affordable than many of the big-name image editors it competes with.

Pros

Extended trial option: You can try Ashampoo Photo Commander 12 for free for 10 days. It's also free to extend the trial period for 30 days, with support.

Setup: We imported bookmarks, backups, albums, and more with help from Photo Commander 12's thorough setup wizards, user guides, and tutorials.

Different works: Photo Commander's three-part interface shows a tree view in the Folder Area, folders and thumbnails in the Content Area, and a Preview Area. It also has useful elements like semitransparent folders, app-like controls, and a slider for resizing thumbnails.

Cons

Ad interruptions: Although "No, thank you" is selected by default, Photo Commander's installer hung when offering additional downloads. We had to restart the installation, which worked on the second pass. But premium software shouldn't freeze on installation because of an ad.

Busy layout: Photo Commander 12 packs a lot into its layout, and it's a bit overwhelming at first, though the program's different way of doing things makes sense with practice.

Bottom Line

Ashampoo Photo Commander 12 does a lot and works well for a reasonable sum, especially compared to some better-known image editors. While it may not challenge Photoshop as a pro graphics solution, it's as much as most users could ask for or need in a photo suite.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Ashampoo Photo Commander 12. The trial version is limited to 40 days.

    "This product bundles many useful tools into one package"

    April 25, 2013   |   By crazymell

    Version: Ashampoo Photo Commander 11.0.1

    Pros

    The opening screen has several options to always guide you in the right direction from the start. It definitely helps me organize and process large photo collections.

    Cons

    None at the moment

    Summary

    The application's biggest strength is breaking down complex tasks into a series of easy-to-follow steps. I consider myself a computer novice and to me, this is the ideal photo managing solution.

    "Very good price / quality ratio"

    January 28, 2013   |   By ariegroot1

    Version: Ashampoo Photo Commander 10.2.1

    Pros

    Everything you need (as long as you don't want to edit pictures with brush etc. - then you need Photoshop). Automatic improvement options and results are pretty good.
    Very good price / quality ratio (look for deals - older versions are almost as good).

    Cons

    Some instabilities (in Vista).
    Annoying and intrusive advertising for other Ashampoo products - which are often good, by the way.

    Summary

    Good !

    "Fan Since Version 4"

    July 02, 2012   |   By Music-Producer2010

    Version: Ashampoo Photo Commander 10.1.1

    Pros

    I have the new version 10 of this program and like all the Ashampoo products I've used over the past few years I continue to love this program and it is one of the first to go on all my Systems that I run. Love the new Interface and Desktop Icon in this version. Many always mention this product as a Photo this and a Photo that. Photo Commander doesn't just handle your Photos but pretty much all your Media (Photos, Videos and Music). The thing I like a lot in this version is I can create Gif files. Another thing I love in this version my Photos come up looking so big and life-like. As a matter of fact I am so fond of this product I "Always" set it as my default Photo Viewer since version 5. Like others have said Ashampoo offers a price you just can't beat and it is like this on all their products.

    Cons

    Not one thing bad to say here, Only need to take this product Mobile, Especially on Mobile Units such as the iPads and Etc.

    Summary

    The very best for your hard earned dollars. Went on all my running Systems and it stays on all my running Systems since version 4. The best in my own opinion for creating Calendars and doing Photo Mixes. Real simple, Real fast..... It get no better than this and now with version 10 you can have all your content arranged by the dates added making everything easier to find. The rating and filters are an added plus. This is one of those very rare programs that comes along every once in a lifetime that you just got to own. First of all you have to really think about all that you are getting and think about the price being offered. I mean you are getting programs inside of one simple and so easy to use program. You have your Calendar Maker, Photo Collage Maker, Gif Maker the popular Panorama Maker and the list just goes on and on all for just a few bucks. It's like getting all this other Software for free and having less clutter on your System at the very same time. From what I see here Ashampoo is one of those extremely rare Companies that looks out for the people more so than themselves such as with the Software giveaways and loading their Software down with great features, Mainly the Software inside of Software thing and it's reasons like these that get them 5 Stars from me each and every time.

    "Great Photo Program"

    January 21, 2012   |   By jbofme

    Pros

    Does everything I need in a photo program and then some.

    Cons

    Not as easy to use as the older versions but in Ashampoo's defense there is a lot more that can be done with this version.

    Summary

    Recommend highly.

    "Ashampoo Photo Commander 9.4 Slideshow - Any Comment?"

    November 13, 2011   |   By Tasiturn

    Version: Ashampoo Photo Commander 9.4

    Pros

    I'm considering buying this product.

    Cons

    I'm considering buying this product but can anyone comment on the slideshow facility? I've been very disappointed in Ashampoo's slideshow software ever since their better than average Ashampoo Burning Studio Version 8. For no apparent reason they dropped the "Pan & Zoom" facility for a so-called "Ken Burn's Effect" which is rubbish.

    Summary

    Can anyone comment on the Ashampoo Photo Commander 9.4 Slideshow software?

    Pros

    Interface looks great and clean, tones of options, supports all possible formats

    Cons

    none I can think of

    Summary

    One of the best software to view your photos and manage them as well as organize them (it's number 5 on my list). You can do almost anything with your photos and they look superb with this application.

    Pros

    The program does what I want and it is inexpensive

    The program is certainly a good buy for me.
