A software for efficient management, creative editing of photos.
You should be careful when installing this software. Since it is ad-supported, Ashampoo Photo Commander offers to download a third-party component that is non-essential, as well as to make some changes to your web browsers.
Once you initiate the program with the user-friendly interface, you can follow the steps in the "Welcome Wizard" to select file associations, language and layout ("Manage/Organize", "Photo-Edit", "Filmstrip").
So, you can use the treeview to locate files and the content area to select them. These are organized according to month and year.
But you can also view images, audio or video only, as well as filter them by rating, age, format and others.
In addition, you can view EXIF information on an image file, ID3 tags on an audio file, as well as settings on a video file (e.g. size, color depth, memory size, aspect ratio).
Also, you can write an image description, save photos as PDF documents or view them in full screen mode, create slideshows, edit JPG comments, change file dates, and others.
Furthermore, you can quickly fix images by changing the contrast, brightness and color temperature, resizing, rotating or cropping them, removing red eye, adjusting horizontal misalignment and applying various effects (e.g. blur, sharpen, grayscale, sepia, pencil drawing, psychedelic).
Plus, you can draw text, pen, lines and shapes (rectangle, ellipse), insert objects or a bitmap from a file, draw hints and callouts, scan an image, capture a window or desktop, use the "undo" and "redo" functions, batch rename files, and more.
Once you are satisfied with the results, you can create a slideshow, HTML album, calendar, collage, panorama, frame or card, contact sheet, photo mix or TIF multi-page.
As we expected, the software takes up a moderate-to-high amount of system resources and includes a well-drawn help file with snapshots. It crashed a couple of times, when we were viewing videos. Otherwise, Ashampoo Photo Commander has a very good response time and we strongly recommend it to all users.
S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) is an industry-standard, reliability-prediction indicator for both IDE/ATA and SCSI hard disk drives. S.M.A.R.T. provides early warning for some hard disk drive failures so that critical data can be protected. But to use the S.M.A.R.T. information, you have to retrieve it from the disk and analyze it. That's exactly what the Active SMART program does.
Active SMART supports automatic hard disks check-up at system start-up, constant tracking of disk's state, and quick scan of the disks. The program supports hard drive thermal sensors and it is capable of tracking the drive's temperature in order to prevent overheating.
Active SMART displays and analyzes all of the S.M.A.R.T. attributes supported by your hard disks and enables you to view the raw values of the S.M.A.R.T. attributes. Active SMART notifies you of any problems with your hard disks by either pop-up messages or e-mail and network messages. The built-in messaging features allow the system administrators to get notified on an impending hard disk failure on any machine in the network, while the local alerting can be configured to notify the users separately.
Moreover, Active SMART includes an internal mail (SMTP) client for sending out email alerts, even if there is no email software installed in the system. It contains flexible logging features, supports system Event log and many other useful capabilities.
