Simplicity in auto-optimization for enhancement with a single click.

Photo editing made simple is the focus of Ashampoo's free Photo Optimizer. An algorithm finds all the problems for you, provides you with a split preview for before and after inspection, and a button to click - no manual adjustments needed!

All the photo editing tools expected in image correction and manipulation software are on board, too, so that you can rotate, crop, resize and process your images any way you like. The neat thing is that you can use the Photo Optimizer without having had any previous experience in editing photos.

A free photo editor that installs quickly and easily

Installation of Ashampoo Photo Optimizer is entirely problem-free. Just download the free application, start the setup process and follow the instructions on the screen. Once installed, the nicely organized and easy to navigate interface will enable you to optimize photos immediately.

At the left, you'll find a panel displaying the folders on your system and at right drop-down menus for the categorized manual tools. At the center is your preview window and, below it, a resizable panel displaying thumbnails of the images in the folder you select.

The all-important one-click Auto optimize button is located at the center of a toolbar immediately below the preview. Click this and the program's algorithm goes to work to analyze the selected image or images for poor exposure, bad lighting, drab colors, etc. You can choose to have the program further analyze to automatically modify white balance and contrast spread. A vertical line appears at the photo's center to enable you to view the before and after the appearance of the image - you can drag it horizontally to inspect the picture in its entirety.

Buttons on the toolbar also provide quick access to tools to enlarge and rotate the image and more in a pop-up menu. These include:

  • Adjust brightness and contrast, saturation and gamma
  • Sharpen or blur images
  • Rotate and mirror
  • Resize
  • Select specific image elements
  • Watermark
  • Apply color and artistic effects
  • Remove red eyes
  • Reduce noise
  • Batch-optimize

The Save button - to use once you're satisfied with your optimization results - is located next to the one-click Auto optimize button.

Manual adjustments are easily applied

You can optimize photos using the tools in the right-hand panel either instead of or in addition to the auto-optimization feature of the free photo editor. The tabs are categorized under drop down menus for Color Correction, Rotate/Mirror, Crop and Resize. There are also Print and Delete tabs.

Color adjustment tools provide input or sliders to adjust brightness, contrast, saturation, hue, gamma settings, etc., all of which can be quickly undone at the touch of a button should you change your mind. Rotating and mirroring, cropping and resizing tools are all easy to use and provide you with photos that are both optimized and presented just as you want them to look. The tools can be used for batch processing. Printing allows you to customize print operations, printing multiple photos to the page if required.

The free photo editor is compatible with Windows 7 to 10 and provides a convenient addition to your system. You can optimize photos quickly and very easily singly or in batches. The batch processing feature makes the program very useful for optimizing large numbers of photos taken on vacations and special occasions.
