Life is sometimes complicated... it's taken a couple few hours to check it out, but long story short, I can suggest skipping this GOTD. It seems to set the overall levels, which as a 1st easy step to optimizing a photo is a good thing. but then it messes up the colors. And with only 2 adjustments that can be set to auto, that's it. If it was a portable app that you could try risk free, I'd say why not, but it's anything but. Monitoring the install in my Win11 VM, it rewrote the registry's component hive -- the plain text file listing the added entries is over 62MB! You get its HDX4 image processor in Program Files\ Common Files\, the program's folder, 4 folders in ProgramData, a folder in C:\Users\ [UserName]\ AppData\ Local\, and one folder and several files in Windows\ Installer\.

There are some higher end apps, Photoshop plugins, and web services that offer automatic [hands-free] image optimization using AI, and depending on the photo, they can sometimes do a pretty good job. And there are several smaller, usually lower cost apps that claim to do the same thing, like Simply Good Pictures 5. They'll make a few canned adjustments that usually improve a photo's appearance enough to justify using them if you're mainly interested in quick & easy [with the emphasis on Quick]. I used Photolemur that way to knock out a couple thousand old photos I scanned using a document scanner. In quick testing Simply Good Pictures doesn't measure up to alternatives from companies like Ashampoo, or Engelmann for that matter [I didn't think their Photomizer was too bad when it was on GOTD].

"You can do the similar enhancements if you add 10% color, 10% brightness and 10% contrast on your regular photo editor."

If that's what does it for you, great! Otherwise, adding [increasing] brightness is more of a kludge if you have an underexposed [too dark] photo and can't adjust exposure in whatever software and don't know about adjusting the gamma. When it comes to increasing contrast, adjust the levels instead -- most every photo editing app will let you adjust levels. Adding color is a bit unclear -- what if I add an orange color? :) If you mean increasing the color saturation, then yes, that can help if the original is a bit washed out, which can happen depending on whatever you used to get the photo in the 1st place, e.g., camera, scanner etc.

The only thing I wish it had was a batch mode.

It is good software if on a hurry to correct some of the picture settings. You can do the similar enhancements if you add 10% color, 10% brightness and 10% contrast on your regular photo editor.

A great little program for quick and simple photo enhancements. It does what it says and no more. Not quite one click, there is a slider for overall and colour enhancement, but that's it.
