tried the demo download to see what this does as the giveaway would not register as described... the Automatic Optimization AND the Auto-Color buttons do not disable the respective processing for me... To disable the particular effect I have to use the sliders and drag them all the way to the left to disable the individual processing preview..... not what I expected at all! Personally I prefer the original photograph to either of these effects or any combination of them I can get out of this... uninstalling the demo and the giveaway installation too.

I declined to install as the file is in German. I saw no option to install in English.
Also refuses to install in D:\ drive and insists on C:\ installation.#I was wondering if I was the only one. Anyways nopes. I already have so many of these image processors.

kokobin, on the very first box that popped up it asked you what language you wanted the installer to use and arrogantly this German company trying to market their product to the world defaults to German language choice and does not even look at the systems set language. You have to manually change that to English or struggle through in a foriegn language.

If people actually followed instructions, there would be very few reasons for these everyday complaints!

When you receive the license key number, copy and paste it to your clipboard.

Go back to the pop-up registration window, (where the boxes are that the license key goes) and you will see where it says "Copy From Clipboard?"
Click there and the license key will be automatically inserted ... properly in each box!
I find this app to be simple, easy to use and does a decent job of 'simple' corrections.

It does it with one click (as stated) instead of having to do each function separately.
(Lightening dark photos, reducing noise, blur, sharpening edges, etc. etc.)

I'm going to keep it for those reasons.

Mark, so they chose to use reverse meanings and you are befuddled why people don't get it right? In windows we Copy TO the clipboard and PASTE FROM the clipboard into the target window. We do not Copy from the clipboard. The entire operation is called Copy and Paste not Copy and Copy!

[ Mark ],

My license self-populated, no cut-and-paste needed.

I uninstalled Englemann Simply Good Pictures after testing -- it has no image browser, no batch, no smooth transitions while tweaking, no cropping, no straightening, no shadow and highlight recover, no noise reduction, no artifact removal, no ... well, not much at all, really.

Free Picasa, free IrfanView, and even free Adobe Photoshop ( prior non-subscription versions ) are -w-a-y- better.

Mark, try reading the readme.txt

"To activate your free copy run the application and enter your email in the pop-up window, press "Request serial number".

The serial number will be displayed on the next pop-up window.

Run the program and press "Enter Serial" to place the code and finish the registration process."

That does not happen!
First you have to put in your email address AND check subscribe to their newsletter (no way to continue without subscribing)
Then in next window instead of the requested license key showing itgoes on about receiving an email with a verification link which then takes us to a web page which is then supposed to give us the giveaway license key.... We are buying the giveaway with consenting to receiving their newsletter and the registration processes is NOT as described in the readme.txt in the giveaway bundle! I would not have bothered hacking .NET 4.6.2 to install on Vista SP2 had I known of the deception and extra hoops... no wonder people are complaining about activation problems!

Reply   |   Comment by JardaH  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Opie, it couldn't because it really needs .NET 4.6.2 NOT .NET 4.0 like it says in the System Requirements panel as such it is WIn 7 and above only and cannot run on Vista or earlier due to 4.6.2not being installable under Vista or earlier.

TK, got curious to see what the big deal was with .NET 4.6.2 compared with .NET 4.6 which will install on Vista SP2.... so had a little hack around and got it to install and then installed this without error and then saw the misdescribed registration hoops and terms and conditions and uninstalled and will wait for a proper giveaway where we do not have to subscribe to their newsletter just to register for a key that was promissed to apear in the next pop up window and not have to go through a multi-stage verification process just for a giveaway!

I hate the fact you have to individually insert five groups of key code numbers but was really burns me is when I tried both copying a pasting each group and also manually typing in each group I get the response "There was no license key requested." Now what?

OK I give up how can you tell if it's registered?? I download almost every program here and have seen dozens of different ways to get a license code but not this program. When I click about it says License Type & Version. A lot of times it will show License Give Away of the Day etc but not this one. And no places to put an email address. What am I doing wrong?

Bob, I would guess if it stops demanding you register and subscribe to their newsletter and lets you do something with the program it is probably registered (assuming you have jumped through all the hoops not documented in the readme.txt but sprung on us within the program... feels like a bait and switch when the readme.txt states one thing and the program then demands a whole lot more to get it working!

No ... file browser, it should be relabeled as Engelmann Simply Good Picture ( singular ), not Pictures ( plural ) since it can only do one picture at a time.

No ... live view of changes -- your image disappears and then gets redrawn after a significant delay such that you reye has nothing to compare before and after changes, no ability to see smooth incremental increases and decreases of effects, and it redraws the results to fit your entire picture in a small box ( no full screen view ), even if you have painstakingly zoomed and scrolled to a specific part of the scene, you'll have to rezoom and rescroll after any tweak to see the results of what happened to what you were just looking at moments ago ... if your eye can remember and compare in your imagination.

No ... noise reduction, no elimination of digitization artifacts.

No ... leveling of tilted pictures, no straightening of tilted-back buildings, "perspective" distortion ).

No ... sharpening or deblurring.

No ... detail recovery in blocked shadows and washed out highlights.

No ... no resizing, no cropping.

No ... batch processing.

No.
__________

FREE Picasa does so much more, why do all these wanna-bees pretend Picasa doesn't exist FREE, and use FREE Picasa as a starting point for their own minimum competitive performance, and improve from there with their program offering?

Yes.

Even FREE IrfanView can batch auto-adjust and save.

Yes.

FREE older versions of Adobe Adobe Photoshop does more and accepts add-ins to do even more ( Adobe has moved on to new versions with subscription licenses and so Adobe prefers to not maintain licensing servers for older versions and so Adobe simply published FREE licenses to enable older versions to run forever ).

Yes.

I guess Englemann et alia depend on finding new folks who never experienced the FREE competition yet, instead of hiring new programmers to improve on what's already available free from the competition.

No.

"FREE" Picassa? Picassa has been discontinued for years, and has fallen by the wayside.

[ bob ],

Like Windows 7 is discontinued, so people should stop using Windows 7, and stop reinstalling Windows 7, and stop buying new computers with from Dell and others that have Windows 7 as the native operating system, brand new, in the year 2018?

I don't think so.

Picasa still has version available that work on Windows 95, 98, ME, XP, 7, 8, and 10.

Still available.

Still work.

Still compatible.

Still better than this poor offering from Englemann.

UPDATES from Picasa have been discontinued, but Picasa itself is still available and still works and still has all of it's original features and benefits, still does everything it promises, and still beats the non-competition from everyone ( yes, EVERYONE ).

Back at you, do you use any imaging software, and if so, what do you find useful and supportive of your needs and preferences?

Simply Good Pictures installed just fine on Windows 7 Pro. The read me instructions tell you that your key will be displayed after you click onto the second popup. Not true, you'll get it after you register and it's send to your email. It's a very basic image optimizer. It does the job, but if your wanting it to be photoshop, look elsewhere. I won't pay for it, but for what is, it's a nice piece of software.Thanks to GOTD and Engelmann for this offering.

Downloaded, installed, and requested serial number. In my email account which is Gmail, the serial number arrives in the Promotions tab. I entered the serial number in 5 steps as copy and pasting does not allow for the whole serial number to be input into the fields automatically when pasting. Each group of characters has to be copied(or typed) into its corresponding field in the activation window field.

To each his own but I think the Tabs are the best feature of Gmail. They act as virtual folders but each email can be in several if required.
