The burning software and multimedia suite Nero Platinum Suite has been one of the most popular programs among many users for many years. Smartphone fever or any other zeitgeist have not changed that. This is no wonder, because working on a real PC with a larger display, when organizing photos, backing up data or editing videos, is simply more fun than swiping on a small smartphone display. Smartphones also have their tasks and provide us with the photos and videos, but when it comes to processing these, productivity is with a program like Nero much higher.
I took a closer look at Nero Platinum Suite 2023 and give you a brief impression of the programs it contains and there are some. Therefore, here really only a short evaluation. At least 20 programs are included in Nero Platinum Suite, so there’s a lot to discover. But if you are particularly interested in the new features in Nero Platinum Suite 2023, I have summarized them here for you.
In general: there are more complex solutions in the detail area, such as video editing, and Nero Platinum Suite does not replace full-blown image editing, but sometimes simpler may be better.
What’s included in Nero Platinum Suite 2023
Nero Start – all Nero Platinum Suite programs at your fingertips
Very successful is Nero Start, i.e. the interface with which you can start and update all Nero programs. Nero Start is easy to use, clear and offers different ways to complete a task. You can start programs directly or you can have the appropriate program suggested via “Solutions”, such as “Create a wedding movie”.
Nero Start also provides access to templates, the path to additional mobile apps, and more. Under VIP Store, for example, you can find offers for third-party software. Nero Start gives Nero Platinum Suite a very positive first encounter right away
Nero Platinum Suite 2023 AI Image Upscaler
The program promises the high-quality upscaling of photos, whereby you can switch between AI and classic methods in several stages and variants.
The Nero AI Image Upscaler does a pretty good job in the end, but the program is also very computationally intensive, so you should make sure that the source image is not already very large, but then you would not need the tool. Useful if you want to have a higher resolution image for any project without much loss of quality.
Nero AI Photo Tagger
The Nero AI Photo Tagger analyzes AI-based photos for certain characteristics such as faces or scenes and assigns appropriate tags to the photos, such as forest, tree and hiking in the case of a landscape. Then you can save these tags in the photos (JPG).
This also runs quite fast and does not work badly. So if you want to assign tags to many photos at once, you benefit here. Via the tag selection you can also quickly select photos. An interesting and well-functioning program.
Nero BackItUp is of course a backup program. The program surprises with a very clear greeting: Backup, restore and mobile backup, the latter requires you to connect your mobile device. Nero BackItUp supports both local drives and cloud storage for backup, with a wide range of choices. Not only OneDrive or Google, but also Nextcloud, Strato, 1&1 and others.
Basically, when saving, you have the choice between Local Copy, Local Snapshot (here files with different date stamps are saved, so that you can retrieve a certain version if necessary) or Synchronize, which is then done on both sides between source and destination. Useful when exchanging files from different computers.
In the next step, Nero automatically selects directories containing photos, videos, music and documents. Alternatively, you can also individually select from entire hard disks to individual directories what should be backed up. Then select the storage location: Local drive, external hard drive or network.
In the last step, you determine whether you want to define a specific schedule for a backup or start a backup manually.
Nero BackItUp is very easy to use and allows you to back up and restore everything you really need. Cloud storage is also generous. It makes a good impression.
Nero Cover Designer
From its origin Nero is a burning software and there is also a cover. designer for creating cases for DVDs and CDs in various forms. The many templates make it easy and with the tools such as text, lines, shapes, etc. you can easily create appealing covers.
In contrast to many other Nero programs, everything in a rather classic Windows software environment, but this does not diminish the purpose. The program is certainly useful if you want to create your own covers and belongs to a burning software like Nero.
Nero Disc To Device
A small software to move videos and music in improved quality from disc to mobile device, cloud or computer. Requires a disc, of course. There are notebooks without a DVD drive, here you just get an external DVD drive. Nero Disc To Device will certainly be a useful little tool for one or the other user.
Beim Nero DuplicateManager wählt man ein Verzeichnis mit Fotos und das Programm analysiert anschließend, welche Fotos praktisch identisch sind. Die Ergebnisse werden übersichtlich präsentiert mit der Möglichkeit Duplikate zu löschen. Ein wie ich finde, sehr nützliches Programm, denn wer unterwegs Foto schießt, der neigt dazu oft zu klicken, mindestens, seit es Smartphones gibt,
As a result, motifs are quickly repeated, which firstly creates disorder and secondly unnecessarily occupies memory. Nero DuplicateManager distinguishes between identical and similar recognition, with similar the differences between the photos are greater. Nero DuplicateManager is a fast and very useful program with real utility value, because selecting identical or similar photos all manually is time-consuming. The program makes life easier.
Nero is still a burning software. Nero Express is the fast, clear way to burn data, music, videos & Co to data carriers of various formats including Blu-ray, each according to the type of data, such as film or audio. Nero Express is simply the fast, clear way to burn data to CD & Co. Burning is Nero’s core competence and the program can do that accordingly.
Nero Face Beautifier
The name says it all at Nero Face Beautifier, a program to optimize faces. This does not make the program bad and if you just want to spice up a face quickly, you can use the program for a quick solution. Of course, it does not replace image editing, but for in between the program is a nice extra, but not much more.
Nero Media Home
Nero Media Home organizes photos, pictures, music and movies with a small built-in image processing and also the possibility to burn data immediately. Nero Media Home offers extensive possibilities to organize, categorize and rate photos & Co. A very useful program that you have to deal with a bit in order to develop your own concepts for order. For example, you can filter photos by time or day (this is also where the Nero AI Photo Tagger comes into play), faces or location and much more.
Nero Media Home needs some time the first time to scan the computer for photos and more, but then a very useful program to bring order to its media landscape. Nero Media Home also supports cloud storage, but you can also limit the use to local drives.
Nero Media Home is useful and there is a lot to discover. The first scan takes some time, but afterwards the program works quite quickly.
Nero PhotoSnap is a one-click photo editor. It is not intended to replace a program like Photoshop, but should allow users to easily and quickly optimize or adjust photos and images. For this purpose, it provides various filters such as cooling, removing veils, etc., which can be used with different intensity.
The 1-click operations do have an effect. Here you can just play around a bit, without any complicated sliders, until you get the result that does more justice to the photo.
Nice to have, unproblematic to use.
Nero Recode is likely to be an important program for many users with which media files can be recoded, so that they can be optimally played back with the appropriate format on another device, for example.
Nero Recode can also be used to rip DVD or Blu-ray videos, as long as they are not copy-protected, whereby subtitles and audio tracks can be removed if not required.

Nero TuneItUp is very nicely done, very easy to use and useful to have in Nero Platinum Suite.

Nero Video is a video editing that cannot compete with specialized video editing programs in all details, but which surprised me positively. I actually like Nero Video very much, because the program is very easy to use, you get good results quickly and the program runs very smoothly even on an older test device.
For the implementation of your own videos, there are numerous suitable templates, for example with background music and titles. Likewise, you can cut videos, add effects, titles, etc. Nero Video also has other handy features, so the program can automatically adapt an audio clip to a video and much more.

A small tool to mirror screen content to other devices, such as an Android smartphone, and you can also share files with a smartphone. Possibly useful for one or the other.
