Ashampoo Releases New Photo Management and Editing Software: Photo Commander 12

Ashampoo, a leading PC software developer with more than 170 million installations and 18 million customers, has released Photo Commander 12, the latest version of its easy-to-use photo storage and editing software.

Photo Commander 12 has new features so users can browse and manage extensive digital photo collections; edit and optimize color and contrast settings; fix image problems such as scratches and red-eye; get creative with image effects; and easily turn photos into greeting cards, calendars and montages. Users also have peace of mind with automated backups to protect edits and work in progress.

Like every software program developed by Ashampoo, Photo Commander 12 is designed for everyday PC users with ease-of-use in mind with step-by-step installation guides and wizards.

Updated and new features in Photo Commander 12 include:

  • Increased scalability: The ability to manage large collections from a handful to 100,000 digital photos with easy-to-understand column layouts, filter and tagging features, and batch management with the ability to rename, move and convert photos
  • Enhanced editing: Photo Commander 12’s one-click photo optimizer enhances image quality at the click of a button, and colors can be enhanced with simple tone matching and color adjustments
  • More after-effects: Enhanced after-effects include oil painting and pencil sketch effects, as well as an enhanced image library to add fun design, text and fonts, shapes and objects
  • Support of high-end image formats: With support for raw image formats to handle RAW and unprocessed film formats
  • More creative options for sharing and transforming photos: New options for calendars, montages, and greeting cards
  • Social sharing: Enhanced integration and easy uploading to Facebook, Picasa and Ashampoo’s user space, Ashampoo Webspace.

Sebastian Schwarz, Ashampoo CEO, said: “Gone are the days of photos being hoarded in shoe boxes under the bed – now they are hoarded on hard drives. In 2015 Americans will take an estimated 100 billion photos, so now our challenge isn’t how easy it is to take photos; the challenge is how to make sharing those photos easier, and to be able to edit them without having to wrangle with software packages that are complex and specialist, and to use software that is designed specifically for everyday PC users. That’s why we are releasing the latest version of Photo Commander, which gives ease-of-use editing with powerful photo management. We’d like to encourage all the digital photo fans out there to organize their photo collection and to rediscover, enhance and share their digital memories.”

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
