Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 5 Editor's Review

Image editing is no longer exclusive to graphic design professionals and veteran photographers. Average PC users also need to dabble with image editing tasks from time to time. The proliferation of Smart phones with high resolution cameras and various portable imaging devices has made digital photography accessible to the mass. However, you do not need to buy a feature rich high end image editor that burns a hole in your pocket for casual and occasional image editing and retouching needs. You can try out Ashampoo Photo Optimizer, a user friendly app that makes digital image retouching and moderate editing a breeze.

Ashampoo Photo Optimizer runs on PCs with Windows Vista and subsequent editions. Your PC should have Microsoft .Net 4.0 Framework installed to let the installation finish. Incidentally, the default installation mode packs in a third party toolbar on your web browser and alters default search engine too. To evade this, you should select custom installation mode. It is a multilingual app.

The app has a sleek and user friendly UI. The explorer type layout makes image locating and editing simpler. You can tinker with settings like color levels, red eye and cropping. You can also perform basic image quality tweaking without much hardship while using this software. The slider based controls are ideal for casual users though professional users will find these a little amateurish. It is also possible to use the app’s full screen mode. The app supports majority of popular image formats.

After you are done with image editing, sharing the images is easy. You can upload to Picasa and Facebook directly from the app UI. Microsoft .Net 4.0 Framework also lets you print an image. Its batch processing mode is ideal for users who need to retouch a lot of images. The app makes backup of edited images so that you can revert to the original at any time.  

The app can gobble up high amount of resources when dealing with multiple high resolution images. However, it does not lead to system instability as such. The company offers online technical support and FAQ section in its website.

Positive Points:
•    Intuitive, sleek layout.
•    Affordable, multilingual app.
•    Easy online image sharing.
•    Batch processing mode.

Negative Points:
•    Does not have any standout feature.
•    Default installation makes change to browser settings.

Ashampoo Photo Optimizer is an affordable and user friendly image editor that is best suited for casual users who need to work with images occasionally. It makes image editing easy with its clean explorer type layout and slider controls. You can export images to Facebook and resort to its batch processing mode to edit multiple images quickly. However, there is no outstanding feature that makes it stand apart in league of competing apps.
