#63, I have tried all mentioned here to get the product registered but the option is still greyed out. the Full Screen option does not say free in it like yours. Mine says 'go to Frull Screen mode (alt-enter). there is no registration choices there.

I also click on About under Help and it is suppose to tell me if it is a registered copy or a trial version (per the help menu's explanation) but it does not. It says I'm version 7.4. I have received my registration code and registered it at their site but the program on my computer has not had the registration code entered in.

Another vote along with Bonnie, #55, for the calendar week to start on Sunday.

@ 70, Tobiasson: Your response to Bonnie was interesting but let me point out the following:

First, the Book says "six days shall you labor..." I'm very happy with the concept of a 5 day business week, using Sunday for chores and projects around the house.

Second, in the Hebrew and many other languages you will find that only two days have names: day 6, "the day of preparation" (eg: Luke 23:54) and day 7, Shabbat' or Sabbath. Others are called "day 1 into the Sabbath," day two into the Sabbath," etc. Similar usage applies in other languages.

I recommend a little booklet entitled "Rome's Challenge." And from the "Catholic Mirror," 2 Sept 1893: "not the vestige of an act canceling the Saturday arrangement can be found. ... The Protestant world has been, from its infancy, in the sixteenth century, in thorough accord with the Catholic Church, in keeping "holy," not Saturday, but Sunday."

I encourage anyone to check out the sources I referred to. I don NOT recommend the widely advertised worldslastchance site, as it has good material but also leads to significant error.

My apologies to those who will feel this was out of place. I have no intentions of offending, nor did Tobiasson, I'm sure. I'm simply providing logic for a software option to allow Sunday as the start of the week.

# 55 Bonnie complains that the Photo Commander calendar
starts on a Monday

Of course it does; pure logic

Have you ever heard the expression "a weekend" ?

Since it is Saturday and Sunday we don't work
this is surely the weekEND

And remember the Good Book also tells us that after
the Earth was created in 6 days, the 7th day was
a rest day

So here in Europa (note the correct spelling)
we start the week with work and relax in the weekEND

$9.99 upgrade offer requires you to download version 7 from this site, then upgrade within the product to version 8, when you will be taken to the Ashampoo website and given the $9.99 price. Once you've paid for version 8, you immediately get a license key and can download version 8.

I checked out the PDF $9.99 upgrade offer. On page four (4), there is a download link. It also mentions that the downloaded program is a trial version of 40 days(10 days + 30 days after email registration). Didn't actually see anything about pricing, but didn't install yet either..

#37 Just me, to resize a bunch of pictures in a batch function, choose the pics you want using CTRL-click on each, or choose one and do Edit/Select All, then go to Tools/Convert Photos.

Tools/Convert Photos starts the batch functions, where many functions of the program can be applied to the batch of pictures you have selected. There are LOTS of options so be careful! Especially with "Output Format" to set JPG quality, and "Output Directory" - it's probably best to send the converted/resized/enhanced pictures to a fresh new directory.

installed fine on Vista Business, I've got the registration key (and was reminded I had 2 other apps registered, good thing since I just re-installed Windoze). But I can't put the registration key into the app. The Help, Buy/Register option is disabled and there is no indication in Help, About that the app is registered. (I have run the app normally and "As admin", no change).

So is my app registered, or do I have to do more? What?


As for the emails, from the earlier apps I registered I just got an offer to "pay what you want" for any of their apps.

Pleasantly surprised.

This is a great application. I skipped this in the past based on comments about changing home page, taking over file associations without asking... I found the configuration very clear in allowing me to associate Photo Commander 7 with all, images only, or do nothing at all.

I was not offended with the registration process as everything worked without a hitch and I had an opt-in for email notifications.

This is a feature-rich application, nicely documented, and does an excellent job in handling JPG compression with clear options. Auto-retouch on several photo's worked very nicely and did a good job in separating skin-tones from similar color background. Very easy to crop and make quick photo changes. I have always used Microsoft Office Picture Manager (Under Office Tools) which is a well kept secret, but very functional. Photo Commander 7 is a very good solution.

There are some excellent features under the "Create" tab to create a calendar, collage, pano, Card... These are excellent and in my opinion, good enough to replace my picture collage maker pro.

Considerations: File management seemed odd to me. The default directory is set to ...mydocuments\all users. When I created a calendar, it took a while to navigate back to my pictures and find the photo's I wanted. After selecting and processing the photo's I wanted, using one of the simple templates offered, I could not find what was produced. The display showed the same huge directory tree of the My Documents folder. After search, I found the 12 PNG calendar files created in the root of My Documents instead of where I pulled the pictures from. This is likely configurable, but it didn't feel intuitive. The result was excellent. Photo Commander 7 created a nice and immediately usable calendar.

Take time to go through the tabs and explore some of the features. This app will allow me to remove several other stand-alone applications.

Thank you for exposing me to Ashampoo.
PS. I accidentally had two instances of Photo Commander 7 loaded and when I viewed a slide show, the machine crawled to it's knee'; taxing CPU 100%. After closing the other instance, the slide show ran great with nice options.

I am afraid you do not need to worry. I noticed during the installation process that one can choose whether one wants to associate any files with this application. In the Welcome Wizard window you can choose the third option "Do not associate any file types with Ashampoo Photo Commander [and] leave current associations unchanged".

Or you can configure the individual file type associations in the configuration menu.

Hope it helps.

Installed and running fine on Vista 64 bit. I just hope there is a way to save a slideshow while you are in the process of putting it together? Right now it doesn't open files for slide shows saved on my hard drive...do I really need a big block of time and all my ducks in a row to produce a slide show in one go...ack!

Yes the registration is quite a hassle, but I'm wondering if this means that on a computer crash this can be reinstalled if you save your info? Seems to work great, however, my complaint in the calendar. It makes great calendars, but it starts the weeks on a Monday. I don't know about other countries, but here in the US , starting the week on Sunday is the norm. Does anyone know how to change this- or another free program that makes calendars as good as this one does but starts with the right day of the week?

I have the key, but can't enter it - "Registration' is grayed out. also, I entered my usual email address and still had not gotten an email response after about an hour! I tried again w/ another of my addresses. No response at either address an hour later. I used a third email address, got a response in a few minutes, and thus got the key, but it's still no response at the other two addresses, and it's been several hours! How do I register if the registration box isn't available. I nver put the key in at all! I would really like to keep this program.

Hi. Back now after 'Playing' for a while.

I have about a dozen Photo editing software titles and this is as good as any taking a LOT into account.

It can be simple or complex depending on the level of your ability rather than the programs ability. There are features that are missing and features that exist, that are hard to find elsewhere.

Truly this is an application that everyone NEEDS to download. If you are into Photograpy - even in a small way, then try it out for a week or two and keep/dispose according to weather you feel comfortable with it.

Personally, I would consider buying this one if it dies.

HUGE thanks, this time to Ashampoo & Gaotd.

10 out of 10!

Installation fails, even on 2nd download after a reboot.

"The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process"

Pity, b/c the current ver of Ashampoo (8.x) gets a "good" rating, while all versions get a "very good" rating. Sounds like the prior versions (possibly like this one) were better than new.

The effects do not work. You can change the colors, contrast, and saturation and all that but the effects do not work. Pencil Drawing turns most of the photo white (cannot see the outline) and a lot of the effects do nothing at all. I'll stick with Picasa with photos from now on.

#8: "how does this compare to others like”PHOTO POS PRO” AND “PICASA”?"

There are some tasks, like resizing an image where your results will be pretty much identical, whether you're using Photoshop or Windows built-in Paint. Otherwise, [simplified] for working with images there are 3 types or levels of apps... Those like Photo Commander & the earlier GOTD, Zoner, specialize in quickly & easily making the shots [images] you have, better -- if you have a truly bad shot/image, it probably won't help. At the other end of the spectrum you have apps like Photoshop & The GIMP, where the focus is on creating new compositions, & correcting bad photos -- they'll do the basic enhancements same as Photo Commander, but after you tackle at least some of the learning curve, you'll still not find it as quick & easy. In between you have apps with *some* of the features you'll find in Photoshop, + usually wizards & a simplified GUI [program window] -- they'll let you do general enhancing, like Photo Commander, as well as limited repair/restoration, & you can create new compositions using fewer features/tools. For some folks the wizards can make this category easier to use than Photo Commander, but not as quickly nor with as much flexibility. Image cataloging/mgmt is available in all 3 types of image apps.

Unless you're after some specific feature *only* one app provides, your best bet is picking the app [in whatever category] you like using best. The results won't be dramatically different, so it's more a matter of personal taste rather than one being technically superior to another. I should add that another consideration for some people like myself is the overall impact on Windows -- I won't/don't go near the popular Paint.net for that very reason.

For those of you that keep asking about the comparison against picasa and getting voted down, it's a legitimate (and very good) question. I loaded this and tried it out and I'm sticking with picasa. It's a far better tool with a lot more features.. and better user interface.

Any "extra" this did give can be easily attained in the age old Irfanview (also free), which I've always used in conjunction with picasa.

This program's much too heavy to not provide anything new.

Ashampoo Photo Commander 7 is a nice, professionally done app to easily optimize & organize your images. Features include things like adding frames, slide shows etc -- rather than try & list everything, I suggest you check out the Product Fact Sheet [PDF] -- after clicking the link to the product site at the top of the GOTD page, you'll see the Product Fact Sheet link in the upper right [under the download link]. The most important thing to note is that this is not a traditional image editor -- there are no selection tools -- but rather an app geared towards folks who don't want/need to bother with serious editing... put another way, you're not going to do a convincing job of putting the boss's head on another body. :-)

Ashampoo Photo Commander itself is low impact on Windows, with most registry additions limited to a single key under HKCU\Software. The program itself takes up ~70MB with 567 files, 23 folders -- take out the clip-art & extra language files you don't absolutely need & that shrinks to ~17MB in 201 files, 6 folders [for those with limited hdd space]. The Photo Commander developers deserve at least a nod as the app will try & use your graphics hardware to accelerate in-program pans & zooms -- something I think that debuted in Photoshop, & it is & works nice.

Installing today's GOTD is not too much hassle, though many folks will always prefer a more straightforward key in the readme.txt file. You enter an email address on the web page a url in the readme file takes you to, confirm the email address by clicking the link in the 1st email, which gets you a 2nd email with the key, an account password, & links to a few other free apps. The emails were sent near instantly so no problem there, & Ashampoo stores your key(s) with your account in case you lose the original email. Hassle or not, it's just the way Ashampoo works -- take advantage of any of the other free offers, & getting a key works the very same way. And it's *much* better than the *very occasional* GOTD that for whatever reason decides to quit working, & won't let you re-install or re-enter the key. [of course that's NOT GOTD's fault in the least, but the developer's]

All-in-all I have no trouble at all recommending Ashampoo Photo Commander for anyone who wants/needs a quick & easy way to enhance their photos/images without sacrificing quality.

The only problem I have with software of this type is that the files(photos) are altered to the proprietary format and if you lose the program through a crash...
Also the problem as noted earlier about uploading onto Windows Live Gallery...Windows often does not recognise the proprietary files.
That said, I may just try this out.
Sure you can be spammed but I have been spammed a lot worse than this Company. And they always give you the option of opting out at the bottom of their newletters.
The Ashampoo toolbar is not bad but IE8 doesn't like it, tending to crash.

#30, yes you need this. The One Click Optimize in this program itself is worth the download and install, and this is free. The One Click Optimize can easily save many dark images and helps brighten backgrounds of flash pictures.

Those with earlier versions, this installs in its own directory, so you can keep all earlier versions, or uninstall any of the versions separately later.

About Ashampoo "spam" emails, you can go to their site and stop those emails. They don't sell or trade your email addresses to anyone.

Ashampoo is a solid company, and it is great that GOTD is featuring some of their programs.

re: their "spamming" -
someday's it's a nuisance, BUT, they do offer killer prices on their Specials in most of their spams -
AND, today I got a $10 B'day coupon from them and since many of their Specials are priced @ $9.99, if one comes up in the next week, I can get it FREE, or at least something that's already discounted at an even better price -
worth the 5 seconds it takes each day to scan their Special offer & delete -

registration - I have found that with an account already established at ashampoo - that once you post new registration info for an app, that you can log into your account (keep your password handy) and select to see your "free registrations" (menu at left) and it will display a list with (your) app names and keycodes. This may be faster than waiting for an email with the keycode.
I have also found that the keycode is unique, if it is unique , to your account email address. I have installed two downloads of the same app and nearly same version at two different times and requested a keycode for each and got the same one again.

# 1 & 13: indeed, this is a link to a PDF file, but on the last page there is another link that automatically downloads version 8 of the program (trial of course). Since I haven't installed it (yet?) I don't know whether there is a link to the $9.99 offer ;-).

BTW this link crashed the Foxit add-in in Chrome (under FireFox it just downloaded the PDF). Don't bother to download the so called "Mediapack", unless you are interested in some nice Screenshot of the program...

But there's relief: install the obtained 7 version. Open the "Internet" menu and you will find the right link to the upgrade. It opened a nice page in FireFox, my default browser (I have some personal reasons to use Chrome at times). And you non-Europeans are lucky indeed. We (although this is a German company) are asked 9.99... €. Even at today's deflated rate, this still means about... $12 ;-(

Being already registered with Ashampoo, I just logged in and registering became a breeze (well, almost). They send you two mails (well in my case). You can disregard the first one (two tier registering they call this) because the second one followed (almost) immediately and did contain the registry code. Same thing happened with the previous Ashampoo/GAOTD offering not so long ago.

# 2 Just drag and drop the Picture folder from "Public" to your own (it's there, in the left folder menu of your Commander screen). Open the folder, and Commander automatically takes this new location into account.

And kudos to the Ashampoo/GAOTD team. Their software is usually really excellent. The freely obtainable versions (there are other sources/Ashampoo-offers) are always but a version older than the "official" ones. Meaning, yesterday's good software is still good today. You can only expect the newer one to be improved, or as in this case to have more features (installer grew from 42.95 MB to a staggering 94.51 MB!)

Mine installed fine without problems. So you got to register and unclick a couple of boxes - what do yo want for free? A little skeptical that this would be better for me than Picasa but was pleasantly surprised. Lots of great editing and enhancing tools, all seem so far to be handled well. Yes, would recommend it.

If you want to see details of what Photo Commander 7 can do before installing it, you can browse the (23.5 MB PDF) User Manual. This has a lot of all-in-one features, and I really wanted to like it, but it failed to even auto-rotate images based on their EXIF tags, and this is version 7.40. This is for recent versions of Windows, and especially if you have Vista or higher, it's tough to beat Windows Photo Gallery, Windows Search 4, free tools like Paint.NET and FastStone Image Viewer, donationware (required) like PictureRelate, etc. If you install this, note that it doesn't request the registration key until you exit.

Web#10, your warning -and remedy- is to the point. Usually I post a similar warning here when Ashampoo is offering (and when I'm tuned in here), but you beat me to it. Which is a nice thing, really ;-)

BTW: There's nothing wrong with Ashampoo's software on itself at all. Only their spam-like approach to "marketing" puts me off. Then again, they are not the only ones pulling this "trick". There are a many others who do real, substantial dammage.


PS: By a quick and very superfluous look this seems like a nice program. I await some more comparative comments before deciding though. And no... I'm not a lazy person, I'm dead tired right now and may/will be back later on -but can't guarantee I'll be up and awake in time ;-)
