ACDSee Pro 7

CNET Editors' review

ACDSee Pro 6 is the photo editing software of choice for many professional photographers. It offers powerful image editing and cataloging tools with secure online storage capabilities that let you store and access massive RAW images for editing and processing wherever and whenever you want or need them. ACDSee is oriented toward maximizing your workflow, too. The fully featured ACDSee Pro 6 is free to try for 30 days. It's not cheap, but it's hardly expensive as image editing software goes. It's well within the budget of sophisticated amateurs, and the price includes online storage space.

ACDSee Pro's installer lets you choose three options for handling file associations: 1) all image file types; 2) only unassociated types; and 3) custom settings that let you choose which file types ACDSee handles one by one. To use ACDSee's online tools and storage space, you'll need to create an account, though that's easy to do, and users who have registered for an account with the freeware version or one of ACD's other products can simply sign in with their existing user name and password, and ACDSee Pro will automatically link to your account. A Quick Start Guide popped up as soon as we logged on to our account. We recommend spending a few minutes clicking through this brief, well-illustrated guide. ACDSee Pro's user interface bears a strong resemblance to other top-quality image editors, with white fonts on a slate gray background. It has an efficient layout that you can customize to suit. ACDSee Pro's features are too extensive to list, but this program seems to have pretty much everything a pro photographer needs to develop, edit, and manage digital images. It also handles slideshows, image audio, screen capture, and external editors.

Both the 32-bit and 54-bit versions of ACDSee Pro 6 performed flawlessly: We even installed the 32-bit version in 64-bit Windows in Compatibility Mode with no issues. While novice photographers might not need (or want) all that ACDSee has on offer, serious photographers will like this full-featured editing and storage program.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of ACDSee Pro 6. The trial version is limited to 30 days.

    "Great workflow design."

    April 10, 2014  |   By hobartquitman

    Version: ACDSee Pro 7 7.1.164.0

    Pros

    With ACDSee Pro 5 I can completely process a Digital Picture into a Publishing Quality Masterwork within minutes. ACDSee Pro 5 is much more intuitive than any other Photo Processing Software that I have tried

    Cons

    The "Sharpening" and "Shadow" adjustments are exceptional too.

    Summary

    Features like the "Light EQ" and now the "Color EQ" in ACDSee Pro 5, make enhancing Digital Photos so easy, intuitive, and fun.
