Feel free to get creative with artistic effects and elegant frame designs. Whether you're recovering failed shots, cranking up the image quality by another 5% or just having fun, this is the program for you!
The lifesaver for your vacation shots
Visual blemishes are detected and fixed through careful image analysis. Our carefully crafted algorithm fully automatically optimizes colors, contrasts, and exposure times for single shots or entire collections, turning underwhelming shots into brilliant photos!
A matter of perspective!
Taking shots of buildings often leads to unpleasant, and easily noticeable, perspective distortions, due to the position of the photographer. Buildings and other tall objects almost seem to fall over, putting an unintended comical spin on your photos. Other times, you forgot to bring your tripod and failed to keep your camera completely straight. Enter Photo Optimizer's new perspective correction! Fix horizontal or vertical distortions in just a few clicks and save shots that would have otherwise gone straight to the bin. Give your photos a second chance and get the right perspective, always!
More ease-of-use through favorites
We all have our favorite functions that we most frequently rely on. Now, you no longer have to navigate through various menus and categories to reach them. Ashampoo Photo Optimizer features a customizable "Favorites" menu so you can bundle all your favorite functions in a single instantly accessible location. Need to quickly straighten the horizon after auto-optimization, fix the perspective or do some cropping? Now you can. Genius, right?
Unrivaled image auto-optimization
The secret of the new Photo Optimizer lies in its one-of-a-kind image optimization. Each individual image is meticulously analyzed for potential weaknesses and room for improvement. Shots hastily taken with a cellphone camera are now easily recoverable! Dull colors, unfavorable lighting or lack of contrast–Photo Optimizer's advanced algorithms detects it all! Once analyzed, your photos are recreated and now full of vibrancy and life–exactly what good photos should look like. We've gone through thousands of settings combinations to find the ones that offer the best results at a high hit ratio. After 2 years of development and countless hours in our test lab, we're proud to introduce the next level of image optimization with Ashampoo Photo Optimizer!
More fine-tuning options
However good auto-optimization may be, there comes a time when you'll want to make manual adjustments. Version 8 offers even more individual fine-tuning options, like color temperature adjustments that can completely change the nature of a shot–and energize those "cold" cellphone images we're all so familiar with. Tone curves are a sure-fire way to enhance shadows, mid-tones and highlights, especially when you're working with RAW shots! Feel free to experiment to your heart's delight, the integrated backup system can revert any changes you make and restore your original image in the blink of an eye.
Improved memory management
If needed, Ashampoo Photo Optimizer utilizes all available system memory to benefit from the full power of your PC. This means, even super high-res images or gigantic collections are now optimizable at lightning speed. Experience the fastest and most robust Photo Optimizer of all time!
Enhance white balance and intensify contrast spreads
White balance is pivotal to the color temperature of your images. Digital cameras are particularly prone to the dreaded bluish cast and dull colors. This leads to photos that seem lifeless and completely devoid of the magic of the moment. Low-contrast images, often due to poor lighting, are another common issue. With the help of custom white balance and contrast spread settings, Photo Optimizer can breathe new life into these otherwise ruined shots! Both features are part of auto-optimization and will auto-enable whenever appropriate!
Photo editing in just a few clicks
The user interface in Photo Optimizer is truly self-explanatory. Functions are arranged into intuitively named categories and never more than two clicks away. Where other photo editors have you wade through manuals, Photo Optimizer gives you results instantly! Everything is simple and logical, there's practically no learning curve. Whether you're a beginner or an advanced user, or maybe you just don't want to spend hours with image tweaking, Ashampoo Photo Optimizer is the program for you.
Versatile export features
Good photos deserve to be seen. That's why we're offering various ways in Photo Optimizer to share your photos with others. This includes email, the free Ashampoo Web and even just setting photos as your desktop background image. If you'd rather go the traditional route and print your photos, you'll love the feature-rich print dialog that not only creates high-quality but also space-efficient print outs, if needed.
Features for perfectionists and creatives
Many sophisticated features are available to those seeking to go beyond auto-optimization. Whether you need to sharpen or soften individual portions, Photo Optimizer offers well-designed tools for every use case. Reduce irritating image noise, adjust color temperatures or crop your images. And for the artist in you, we've also included multiple effects like waves, swirls, even implosion and explosion. There's ample room to experiment.
Naturally-looking portrait enhancements
Faces are the focus of many photos, yet they seldom come out perfect! Enhance your portraits automatically or manually with Photo Optimizer. Fix red eyes and whiten teeth for that dazzling smile. Fix minor glitches with the clone tool and remove stains and other impurities like a pro. Create perfect yet naturally looking portraits in just a few clicks!
Add a little color!
You can't have great photos without great colors. That's where Photo Optimizer's highly efficient color correction comes in. Add a personal touch or a better sense of realism to your photos. It only takes a few sliders to enhance contrast, saturation and many other aspects. Observe your changes in real-time, thanks to the built-in live preview and take a trip down memory lane with the nostalgic sepia effect or apply a threshold for a nifty color reduction. Don't like what you see? Bring back the original at the click of a button!
Comfortable batch processing
Since Ashampoo Photo Optimizer does so much fully automatically, we've included batch processing to save you time and nerves while the program processes your entire photo library in one go. Select individual images from various sources or entire folders and have Photo Optimizer work its magic. Every image is meticulously analyzed and its quality optimized according to its specific characteristics. Batch-process an entire vacation in one go, polish your wedding or birthday shots and put the fun back into photography.

A very happy and grateful customer.

What's the difference between Office 365 and Office 2019?
You get the premium Office software with the Office 365 subscription plans: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access (Publisher and Access are only available on a PC). Office 365 can be enabled across various devices, including PCs, Macs, Android tablets, Android phones, iPad ®, and iPhone ®. Office 365 also comes with services such as 1 TB OneDrive room, 60 Skype minutes a month and support for Microsoft chat and phone. You get the new versions of the software with a subscription, and also receive updates as they happen. Learn more about Office 365.
Office 2019 is a one-time purchase that includes classic PC or Mac applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and does not contain any of the features that come with an Office 365 subscription. One-time purchases do not have an upgrade option, which means you would need to buy it at full price if you intend to upgrade to the next major update.
How do I know my PC or Mac can run Office?
By viewing the requirements, you can verify if your computer will support your Office version.
Will Office be identical on a PC, a Mac, and a mobile device?
No. Office applications are designed to better function on each system and platform. The Office applications and version numbers available to Mac users can vary from those available to PC users.
Can people with an earlier version of Office open documents I created using Office 365 or Office 2019?
Office 365, Office 2019, Office 2016, Office 2013, Office 2010, Office 2007, Office for Mac 2011 and Office for Mac 2008 applications can open your documents without further intervention. Customers using earlier Office versions would need to download and install a compatibility pack.
Is Internet access required for Office?
Internet access is required for downloading and enabling all the new Office suites releases and all Office 365 subscription plans. Internet access is also required for Office 365 plans to control your subscription account, e.g. to install Office on other PCs or to change billing options. Internet access for documents stored on OneDrive is also required, unless you install OneDrive desktop app.To keep your Office edition up-to-date and benefit from automatic updates, you should also connect to the Internet regularly. When you do not connect to the Internet at least every 31 days, your applications will go into reduced functionality mode, which means you can access or print your documents, but you will not be able to update or build new documents. Simplify reactivating your Office software by reconnecting the Internet.
To use the Office software, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, you don't need to be linked to the Internet because the programs are completely installed on your computer.
What is the maximum number of Office licenses I can activate using the same Microsoft account?
Users can activate 1 Office 365 Home and Office 365 Personal subscription, and up to 25 Office Home & Student 2019, Office Home & Business 2019, and Office Professional 2019 licenses.
