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.
