11 August 2014, Nick Peers

Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 6German developer Ashampoo has unveiled Photo Optimizer 6, the first major new build of its fast, user-friendly photo tool for over two years.

The program adds a number of new portrait-enhancing tools and a slew of extra effects, but also delivers various “structure” improvements to the user interface and promises a more efficient, faster image-editing tool. It also drops support for Windows XP.

The program opens with an improved one-click optimisation tool, which can be applied to multiple photos. User-interface improvements are designed to make images easier to handle, with a particular focus on the crop, free rotate, watermarking, age image and horizontal straightening tools.

Other changes include an improved batch-processing tool, new integrated webspace uploader for sharing photos via Ashampoo. The program is also less resource-hungry, and has been fine-tuned to deliver better performance over the previous version.
