Features of ACDSee Pro 10
Take control of all your digital image assets:
Whether you have thousands or tens of thousands of photos, an organized collection allows you to work smarter and faster. Your foundation for an effective workflow is digital asset management. ACDSee can handle both catalog- and browser-based workflows so you can manage your digital assets any way you like.
Hit the ground running:
Why spend time importing your photos to a separate library when you don’t have to? ACDSee connects you directly to the live folder tree on your computer so you can browse and work on your files without delay.
Streamline digital asset management:
ACDSee is packed with time-saving photo management tools. Organize your photos as you import them from your camera or storage device. Catalog files for improved speed and performance. With NEW Batch Export, simultaneously perform a range of workflow steps. Convert formats and color space, resize and change filenames on batches of images. Customize your workspace to suit your individual style, and configure access to external editors with seamless simplicity.
Manage with flexibility:
Organize your entire collection with ACDSee’s full support for EXIF, IPTC and XMP metadata. Set and edit information about your photos in accordance with IPTC Core 1.1 industry standards. Save time by modifying metadata for groups of photos at once, and creating presets for ongoing use. Add ratings, keywords, categories, color-labels (NEW!) and location data to your images for the ultimate in digital asset management.
Tap into ACDSee’s powerful array of search tools to quickly retrieve the photos you want. Find images based on metadata, file properties, date, event, keyword, ratings, color-labels and GPS location data. Build and save detailed searches. Filter, group and sort your results to quickly find that one photo you really need.
Assign a rating of 1-5 to your images to help keep track of your best shots. The value you assign to your image in will be correctly applied in other applications you use; a 5 rating in ACDsee (the best!) is a top rating everywhere you upload.
Protect your Privacy:
Use the Remove Metadata tool to keep your proprietary information private by stripping EXIF and IPTC metadata to protect the details of your locations, camera settings and equipment choices.
Present and preserve your work:
Share your shots through e-mail services such as Gmail and Yahoo! Mail Plus, and upload to flickr, SmugMug, and Zenfolio. Conveniently optimize and upload images to web spaces you manage through FTP. Design and present slideshows of your images. Protect your work by archiving your collection to .zip folders or on disc, and backing up to external hard drives.

Developer: ACD Systems
Save your precious time on repetitive tasks with ACDSee Actions. Record literally any steps you make in Edit mode and apply them to other images, essentially recreating an entire editing process with a single click. Preview the results your recordings would have on any image before applying. Export your recordings to as many files as you like in an array of file types. While Batch Edit only contained a handful of adjustments, you can now record and batch-apply any of Edit mode’s 200+ adjustments. Recreate the end result without having to take the time to go through or even relearn each step, and then share them with friends, family, or fans!
Distortion Doctoring with Lens Correction
Correct barrel and pincushion distortion in digital photographs with the ultimate accuracy: automatic correction specific to the lens used to take the photo. ACDSee Pro 9 lists the possible lenses for your camera’s make and model and applies the correction specially formulated to fix the particular distortion inherent to that lens — even fixing chromatic aberration. Map this correction to your lens and set Develop mode to correct every time, no attention required.
Classify with Collections
Group your photos in one place for a simple take on highly complex organizing and easy searching. Create Collections to fast-track the right photos to the right workflow, such as printing, batch editing, sharing to web, developing, or accumulating for a slideshow. Build hierarchies within Collection Sets for further structure to help you drill right down to the photos you want. Or construct Smart Collections containing a search, which you can return to at any time. Utilize an extensive list of search variables, including relative dates, date ranges, metadata, and file properties. Smart Collection’s search will update its findings as files are added to the database — zero effort on your part.
Photos Mode — Your Aerial View
Experience the entirety of your photo collection by date. Gain new perspective on your memories by browsing it by year, month, or day. Conveniently locate your place in giant collections thanks to pop-up dates showing you exactly where you are in time. View it all together, or just the photo collection stored on your Microsoft OneDrive™. Quickly move from this panoramic chronoscopic view to organizing, viewing individual files, or taking them directly into Develop mode for non-destructive adjustment, or add adjustment layers in Edit mode for limitless creativity.
4K Support — Your Resolution Revolution
Distinctive, clear, crisp. These are just a few of the words used to describe ACDSee’s new high DPI support. View your images on 4k monitors in sharp, uncompromising detail no number of words can describe.
Snapshots — Your Adjustment Freeze Frame
Develop mode now offers even more non-destructive freedom. As you make adjustments, take snapshots at any time to save your work up to that point. Continue to edit as desired, but you can return to the version in your snapshot at any time. Share your image with snapshots with other ACDSee Ultimate or Pro users, allowing them to learn how you achieved each effect.
Dehaze — Taking Your Murkiest Images Out of Obscurity
When dust, smoke, vapor, or other particles becloud the clarity of your image, look to the Dehaze tool to restore contrast, detail, and lost color. Particularly prevalent in the sky, a haze can take the focus away from your subject and overshadow fine detail. Give your images clear skies, and your subjects the spotlight they deserve.
Skin Tune — Flawless and Radiant
Forget the concealer. Forget the foundation. Forget the painstaking color targeting and precision repair work. All you need now is the Skin Tune tool, which targets skin tones so you don’t have to. Avoid messing with the other colors in your image. You can use the Skin Tune tool to even skin tone, restore glow, and smooth away blemishes and flaws without a lot of messing around. No makeup. No expense. No hassle.
Extended Editing Capabilities with Photoshop™ Plugin Support
Expand your creative scope with the ability to import and apply Photoshop™ plugins to your Edit mode adjustment workflow. Effectively create your own filters and use them in combination with best-in-class photo editing tools, special effects, and targeted repairs for limitless opportunities.
New Filters — Apply Some Magic
Take any old photo and turn it into something extraordinary. With an ever-expanding roster of brand new effects to choose from, it’s easy to give the mundane a splash of mystery, mood, or otherworldliness without having to go through a long list of complex steps.
Painless Color Matching
Pick up that exact shade you need with the Eye Dropper tool. Populate the outline and fill of your drawn shapes with any color from inside your photo or from outside the app itself.
