Editors' Review

Ashampoo's Photo Optimizer 6 is more powerful and efficient yet uses fewer system resources than earlier versions. An updated user interface with a side-by-side comparison window makes it easy to edit and optimize digital images. Features like One-Click Optimization, batch processing and file conversion, watermarking, red eye and other correction tools, and a bevy of filters and effects make Photo Optimizer 6 a bargain at just under $15 with an extended free trial available.

Pros

Extended free trial: You can try Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 6 for free for 10 days, but a 30-day extension is available via email.

Logical layout: Photo Optimizer 6's updated interface has an intuitive layout dominated by a split window that displays before-and-after views of filters and effects in real time. Standouts include an Explorer-style tree view, slider resizing, and large thumbnails.

Help and Settings: Clicking a context-sensitive Help button in any window opens Photo Optimizer 6's user manual in the relevant section. The user-configurable Service Channel lets you choose which notifications you receive, and a local database option backs up images to your disk.

Cons

Stiff competition from freeware: While Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 6 is easy to use and a bargain among premium photo editors, similar freeware rivals its features and options.

Bottom Line

With a clear, attractive layout and easy-to-use features and tools, Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 6 competes favorably with much more expensive photo software. It faces pressure from capable freeware offering similar features and performance, but a 40-day trial eases the decision.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 6. The trial version is limited to 40 days.

"Fast, Easy, Great Job, Batches or single photos"

July 18, 2011  |  By thepillquill

 |  Version: Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 4.0.1

Pros

I love this software because I take pictures just for fun and want something easy to fix the overall picture all at one time with just one button. This does that perfectly.

Cons

None. It is primarily to correct color (Over or Under exposed) It does that very well. If you want it to do more, use something else.

Summary

You get option to upgrade from the free to the full program for just $5.00. It is a bargain, and I highly recommend doing it. I have no complaints.

"Programm mit Fehlern."

June 19, 2011  |  By Photoreise

 |  Version: Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 4.0.1

Pros

Sehr einfach und ├╝bersichtlich gehalten

Cons

Nach dem Bearbeiten von einigen Bildern tritt ein Programmfehler auf der nicht mal durch einen Programmneustart verschwindet. Die Bilder sehen nach der Optimierung dann extrem stark unbrauchbar verfremdet aus . Auf Supportanfrage keine Reaktion

Summary

Nicht das Geld wert.

"Nice n Neat"

February 07, 2011  |  By ZaNazNur

 |  Version: Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 3.12

Pros

I like the UI, it looks pretty nice n neat. The features though, only bought it last 2 days, haven't quite figured all the usefullness. Might say, it could be just a little bit more innovative than Picasa.

Cons

Will tell n elaborate when I find some.

Summary

I like this software, it doesn't use much system resources as Picasa. Particularly, I really like the UI. Maybe that's what enticing me to pay for it in the first place. Beside, there's also a generous offer, offered by Ashampoo right now until 14 Feb. where we get to pay only $20 for a selection of software (up to 5) but no more than $100 in total pay. Being an Ashampoo users for quite a while, think I just had to grab what I can get.

"Easy program to use."

February 03, 2011  |  By albert1916

 |  Version: Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 3.12

Pros

Optimizer very good

Cons

No trim / crop tool

Summary

As I work a lot with photos of documents the inability to crop renders the program nearly useless for my needs. However for day to day work, it's very good.
