Ashampoo Photo Optimizer Free is the perfect tool for fixing underexposed photos quickly and easily. Open one picture or a whole folder full of images, and it will lighten all of the files with a single click.
Ashampoo Photo Optimizer Free is a one-trick pony, but it does its one trick well. The program lightens photos that are too dark. You can also rotate your images left or right. When we tested this utility, we found it did a good job with underexposed files, but it doesn't improve overexposed files, reduce digital noise, or make any other adjustments. Clicking on the "Internet" menu calls up an option to upgrade to Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 3, which has more controls and options for editing photos. The upgrade is inexpensive, but it's not free. Professional photographers and hobbyists wanting to seriously tweak their images will find this program lacking. However, those who are frustrated or intimidated by photo-editing software programs and looking for something friendlier will love this program. The interface is bright, colorful, and easy to read. The program is easy and enjoyable to use, and most users will be able to navigate it with no problems.
Ashampoo Photo Optimizer Free is freeware. There's a Help file and links to product support and the manufacturer's Web site, should users want more information. We encountered no problems installing and uninstalling the program. For a free application, this is a well-designed imaging tool that should make anyone's photo-editing experiences much easier.
Digital Cameras are a must have: Almost everyone has one. The problem is that the self taken pictures often don't turn out as good as the photographer wanted them to. The photos are mostly too dark, and weak in contrast and colour. Often they look as if you look at them through gray fog. Naturally it is possible to use a professional picture processor, in order to work on all the picture settings belatedly, so that the photo is radiant. Only: who knows how to do that? And even those who know how to regulate all picture settings and who know all optimization instructions that a professional program has to offer, have a real problem with time: altering pictures on the PC, can take a very long time. In this way the Ashampoo Photo Optimizer Free is really a world sensation, which every user with a digital camera almost imperatively needs. The program opens individual pictures and shows them in its window. A single click of the mouse is enough to optimize the photo entirely.
