ASCOMP Photo Anonymizer
Often photos taken with a smartphone or digital camera contain personal information that not only disclose on the location and time of the recording, but can also hold other sensitive information. In so-called meta-tags, in addition to the GPS location, information about the recording device and even the photographer can be stored.
Photo Anonymizer helps you maintain your anonymity: Remove unclaimed metadata from your image files with just a few clicks! The free Windows software supports all common metadata standards, such as EXIF, DICOM, IPTC and XMP.
Did you know that Internet browsers often store the source of an image download in the respective file and thus can be traced for years to come, from which Internet address an image was downloaded? With Photo Anonymizer you can also completely remove these “alternate data streams”! Make sure that third parties no longer receive any information about which page you downloaded an image from!
Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 7 auto-optimises photos at the click of a button. Through extensive image analysis, weak points such as incorrect exposure, lack of contrast or incorrect colouring are detected and immediately fixed. Photos can be processed individually or in batches. Precision work can also be done: users can straighten image horizons, watermark images or apply numerous effects. Even minor blemishes such as red eyes, skin impurities or spots can easily be removed with this image editing software.
Furthermore, the highly effective built-in colour correction can quickly add an individual note to images or that classic realistic look. Free image rotation, cropping or straightening is also possible with ease. In addition, contrast, saturation and many other image aspects are adjustable through sliders with live previews for instant visual feedback. And thanks to the program’s logical structure, user’s don’t need any training time as all functions are always no more than two clicks away. New in the program are the optimised interface, automatic white balancing, contrast stretching and completely revised image auto-optimisation technology.

Ashampoo Snap 10 captures your screen contents as images and videos.

Editing and creating content is easy, e.g. with the help of multi-lingual text recognition, automatic numbering and task-driven image editing. Finished images and videos can easily be saved locally, emailed or uploaded to the cloud.
The problem: PDF files and images from a scanned paper document contain text that cannot be copied or edited. However, manual typing is not possible due to the size of the document and the high time involved. The solution: Text-R! The software also recognises text in PDF files and images that immediately convert it into an editable document for any user level. The text can be saved in anew editable PDF or RTF document (Word). Formatting stays close to the original, so in most cases no post-processing is required.

ASCOMP Cleaning Suite
If your system boots up more and more slowly, then it is high time for a thorough system clean! But what data can be deleted without risk, or still needed for the smooth system and program flow? Cleaning Suite has the answer! A total of six helpers analyse your system and enable deep cleaning operations. For example, you can delete temporary files, clean browser histories, caches, and cookies from all popular Internet browsers, and prevent installed applications and tools from starting automatically at system startup.
StartUpStar eliminates startup irritants! It’s an almost universal problem on Windows PCs — unneeded programs that run on startup, adding extraneous time to the boot process. StartUpStar from Abelssoft has something to say about this. The program presents a list of startup items, and then lets you decide which ones to keep or remove. The software works with 64-bit startup programs, includes items from the Windows Task Scheduler and allows the user to specify delayed starts for individual programs. Far too many Windows programs are so bold to think that they’re indispensable, and should be started with every boot, without even asking the user. If nothing is done to prevent it, they’ll load with every Windows startup, whether they’re needed or not. It’s time to take control.
