The secret of the new Photo Optimizer lies in its incredible image optimization technology. Every image is extensively analyzed to detect potential flaws. Dull colors, incorrect exposure settings or color temperature – Photo Optimizer’s advanced algorithms finds them all! For the first time, white balance and contrast stretch settings are now auto-adjusted! Once analyzed, the program breathes new life into your images with superior sharpness and vibrant colors – just like a good photo should be.

I have many tens of thousands of images stored on my computer. Needless to say, I was excited to get my hands on a program which claims to improve the appearance of them. Photo Optimizer 7 does not disappoint.

The interface is both a pleasure to look at and easy to use. It is fairly intuitive and does not require a huge learning curve.


Photo Optimizer 7 comes with a smattering of sample images for you to experiment with. It’s a great way to learn about all the features and how to use them. Photo Optimizer maintains a database of all your changes so you can always revert to images prior to your current changes with a click of the Undo button.

I tried a couple things and here are the results…

Auto optimize before and after:



Here is an example demonstrating “red-eye” removal plus Auto optimization:



If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video might be worth a thousand pictures. Here’s a short clip showing a few of the basics:

Some Points Worth Mentioning


  • In the Settings Menu, along with choices for General options and Language, there is a Service Settings option you might want to take a look at:


Now, I can’t make any recommendations here because the choices are strictly personal. I am only showing you this so you will be aware of them and to know they are all selected by default.

  • Another observation worth mentioning is that when I tried to select a folder with 3,900+ images in it, Photo Optimizer 7 imported 1,000 of them and informed me that 1,000 was the limit. I did not experiment further, so I don’t know if this is a singular limitation, or if it will import several folders of up to a thousand images each.

Conclusion ?

Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 7 is a great program. It is fast, easy to use, and very flexible with countless settings for you to fine-tune your images just the way you want them.  This program also comes equipped with its own Help File, which means you don’t have to go online for assistance. Great job, Ashampoo!
