ACDSee improves image editing tools

ACD Systems says its updated software provides professional and advanced amateur photographers “with a complete set of tools to perfect images, stay organized and save time.”

New features include brush-on edits, with which users add any editing effect or adjustment to a specific area of a photo, complete with size and feathering controls, as well as a Smart Blur filter, Clarity tool, and improved noise reduction.

ACDSee Pro 6 offers workflow and development features “to meet the demands of professional photographers,” the company says, such as 64-bit support and a non-destructive adjustment brush. It also “resolves color matching issues that can occur between different devices with much more accurate color matching and higher quality results.”

ACDSee Pro 6 is $100; the more basic ACDSee 15 is $50. Either tool will “allow photographers to carry out digital asset management and all the essential tasks of their photography workflow,” ACD adds, “from import to final presentation, in one complete solution.”
