<div class="center">Discover ACDSee Pro Photo Manager, the most powerful software platform for viewing, processing, editing, organizing and publishing your photos. ACDSee Pro is a single platform where professional photographers view, process, edit, organize, catalog, publish and archive their growing digital photo collections. With the flexibility and control offered by ACDSee Pro, you can manage your images the way that works best for you. No need to adapt your workflow to fit the cookie-cutter cataloging imposed by other photo applications.
ACDSee Pro is built to help you save time in all the key steps of your workflow. Each of the four modes - Manage, View, Process, Online – groups the tools that you commonly use during that particular step of your workflow. ACDSee Pro empowers you to view, process, edit, organize, catalog, publish, and archive your photo collections with precision and control.
View your RAW images with lightning-fast image previews and support for most RAW formats from DSLR cameras. Get support for IPTC core fields with XMP. Shift time stamps on multiple images at once. Compare up to four images side by side.
Known as the best workflow manager for today’s photographers, ACDSee Pro has grown to become a valuable tool for quickly processing the ever-expanding variety of RAW formats from digital camera manufacturers, especially for the new generation of DSLRs. With a distinguished pedigree as the Internet’s first and fastest image browser, ACDSee has helped photographers view, edit and share images quickly and easily for more than 15 years.</div><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style="color:red">What\'s New</span></span>
So many new features. So much time saved. Make your best photos even better, with time to spare, thanks to a host of new features that deliver the precision your photos deserve.
Super Fast Performance
High resolution images require high amounts of handling power. Speed up your image processing and zoom through your workflow tasks, thanks to ACDSee Pro 6’s native 64-bit support for Windows operating systems.
Save time and stay on top of your growing collection by creating keyword hierarchies that span from the general to the very specific. For example, say you’ve created this structure: Transportation | Cars | Vintage. When you assign an image of a Model-T to the Vintage keyword with a check of a box, it automatically gets added to the higher keyword levels. Click on a keyword in the Catalog pane or use Quick Search to display all of the files assigned to that keyword. Create as many levels as you need to fully and accurately classify your assets.
Improved color management
Achieve a consistent color workflow. Reworked from the ground up, ACDSee Pro 6\'s color management system resolves color matching issues that can occur between different devices with much more accurate color matching and higher quality results. Plus, multi-monitor support is now included.
Burn to Blu-Ray
Quickly and easily archive your images to Blu-Ray discs, directly from within ACDSee.
Non-destructive adjustment brush
Make non-destructive adjustments to select areas of your images using a versatile brush to precisely get the look you want. Subtly or dramatically correct exposure, add clarity, boost vibrance and more.
Improved noise reduction and sharpening
Rescue your high ISO images with ACDSee\'s significantly improved noise reduction technology to get smoother and more natural results, while retaining as much edge detail as possible. Plus, the new Detail slider adds control over the sharpening process by feathering or softening the sharpening halos.
Better black and white
Take your monochrome images to a whole new level of creativity with the dedicated black and white mode. Make high-quality non-destructive hue-based brightness adjustments and experiment with saturation-based tinting that allows you to add a specific hue back to a black and white image.
New processing tools
Target midtones to make intuitive adjustments to your images – give a little extra definition to details with the Clarity tool, or get dreamy with Soft Focus. Use Cross Process to add a surreal, retro look. Or draw attention to a cropped portion of your image with Post-Crop Vignetting, complete with feathering, radius and roundness controls. Plus, you can now non-destructively reduce red-eye.
Advanced color improvements
Adjust individual or overall color in your images with improved Advanced Color tools, built on a higher quality algorithm that uses modern color models for higher quality and more perceptual color adjustments. Add in more intuitive controls, and you can subtly fine-tune or dramatically change the hue, saturation, and lightness, for remarkably better results.
Brush on edits
Quickly brush on any editing effect or adjustment to a specific area of your photo, complete with size and feathering controls. For even more flexibility, combine your edits with different blend modes for the ultimate in control and creativity.
Apply the new Smart Blur filter in Edit Mode as a creative effect, or to reduce the noise in your image. Smooth out the grain and noise patterns between edges while still retaining the sharpness and important details of your shot.<span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style="color:red"> ----------------------------ACDSee Pro 6.0 Release Notes-----------------------------------------------</span></span>
