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.
