Ashampoo Burning Studio 2021
Ashampoo Burning Studio 2021 is a powerful disc burning software for CD, DVD and Blu-ray discs. The software quickly burns files, audio and video to all recordable disc types but also specialised media such as BDXL or M-Disc. The built-in disc ripping auto-detects track names and easily turns audio files into custom audio discs complete with individually designed covers and inlays.
Playlists can be auto-generated during ripping for easy playback in the desired song order. The program can also finalise discs to make them playable on older retail players or car radios. Built-in disc spanning automatically spreads data across multiple volumes if it can't fit on a single disc. This makes it easy to burn entire photo, document or song collections to disc.
Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 2020
Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 2020 is quite possibly the easiest photo editor ever. That's because it only takes a single click to make the magic happen. Your photos will be auto-analysed and all potential weaknesses regarding lighting, colour temperature, and contrast detected. Afterwards, the new algorithm will recreate each photo – with powerful results. Even mediocre shots will suddenly appear more vibrant and harmonious. But no photo editor would be complete without the classic features like colour, brightness, contrast, and gamma manipulation. You can also freely crop, rotate and resize your photos.
Note: TechLife 123 mistakenly lists Ashampoo Soundstage 2020 as being part of this issue's software package. This is incorrect, and Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 2020 is part of this issue's offering. TechLife apologises for any inconvenience.
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 a new editable PDF or RTF document (Word). Formatting stays close to the original, so in most cases no post-processing is required.

The PDF format is used worldwide to distribute graphically processed documents. However, editing the documents is usually associated with high costs because good PDF editors are quite expensive. The cheaper alternatives on the other hand, lack the important functions to make PDFs secure, for example by encrypting, digitally signing or adding watermarks.
Secure-PDF puts an end to this: Encrypt your own or other people's PDF documents with up to 256 bit key strength (AES). Add a password to open it so that users can only view the encrypted document by entering the correct password.
Secure-PDF can set watermarks as well as the owner information of a PDF document – even without previous knowledge of how to use PDF documents!

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 let’s 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.

Abelssoft’s Tagman puts all the music files on your PC into order. The program pays attention to the ID3 tags of each music file. These metafiles are used by media players to show you the name of the song, who recorded it, from which album the song came, and in which year it was recorded or launched. Many files lack ID3 tags or have incomplete information, so Tagman uses specific servers to find this metadata on the internet. Even better: the software can also automatically detect and download the album cover.
