MAGIX Photo Manager 10 Deluxe
Get more from your digital photo collection

MAGIX Photo Manager 10 Deluxe is an interesting graphics application that provides powerful tools to help organise, optimise, maintain and present your digital photo collection.

A powerful selection tool, for instance, can scan your photos to locate duplicates or similar photos.

It's able to locate and recognise faces in photos, to a degree, though we noticed some errors in our tests.

And most interesting for us was the ability to scan all your photos, automatically picking out the best and most representative images according to the criteria you specify (photos taken at a particular time, say; images that are "attractive"; photos that contain people). We ran this on a large collection of photos, asked it to pick out the best 12, and in just a few seconds it did a great job, genuinely picking out some of the highest quality images.

Elsewhere in the program are more traditional organisational tools, so for instance you can organise your photos into categories or custom albums, making them easier to locate later.

Photo optimisation tools include automatic brightness and colour correction, for example, with manual controls available if you prefer. Image contrast and brightness can be tweaked with a slider, red-eye removed in seconds, skewed photos can be straightened, and built-in presets will apply other useful tweaks in a click. Adjustments can be applied to an entire folder of photos in a click, and the integrated Photo Designer is available when you need more powerful editing tools.

And once you've polished your pictures, and chosen the best shots, they can now be presented and shared in many different ways.

An improved presentation mode allows you to create an attractive slideshow on your own PC, for instance, complete with your own choice of audio soundtrack.

You can upload favourite shots to your very own online album, or send them directly to Facebook, Flickr or YouTube.

And a new Travel Route option shows your photos in the context of an animated map, perfect for illustrating some lengthy driving holiday, like a trip across Europe.

Verdict:

The face recognition was a little hit and miss for us, but that's not unusual, and elsewhere MAGIX have done a great job. Photo Manager 10 Deluxe has plenty of useful features to help optimise, organise and share your photos - if your image collection is on the messy side then this could be the perfect solution.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
