Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 2016
Tune, fix and edit your photos

Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 2016 is an easy-to-use tool for tuning and fixing your digital images.

The program takes an app-like approach to photo tweakery. There are no selection tools, no drawing or paint options, no floating toolbars: you just select one or more photos and apply your effects in a click or two.

Tools on offer include the usual Crop, Resize, Rotate, Mirror, Sharpen, Blur, Straighten, and adjustments for brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, and gamma.

There's also text and image watermarking, red-eye removal, noise filtering, and an "Image Age" effect.

These individual effects are also quite basic. You don't get to choose your resize algorithm, or correct contrast with a Bezier curve: mostly you have just a slider or two.

Despite that, there are some neat touches. The Crop tool supports common aspect ratios; a neat "Straighten Horizon" option provides two points which you just click and drag to positions on the real horizon; images are auto-rotated based on their EXIF orientation; metadata is preserved when saved.

Also, you don't have to manually edit your images at all. An Auto Optimize tool can fix an entire folder of photos in a click, while a smart Preview feature helps you check the results.

Whatever you're doing, the finished images may be saved in a few core formats (JPG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, JNG), exported as emails or printed.


Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 2016 is basic, but has the core photo fixing tools you need, and if speed and simplicity is your top priority then it could be a smart choice.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
