Editors' Review


ACDSee Pro 8 is a comprehensive tool that allows you to organize, edit, and publish your photos, all through one convenient and intuitive interface. Because it does offer so many options and features, this program is a good option for users with a wide variety of needs.


Lots of guidance: There are all kinds of resources that come with this program to help you access all the features and get everything out of it that you can. The first time you open the program, you'll be greeted by a brief but thorough walkthrough of the main app features. There are also a lot of supplementary materials to refer back to as you work in the program whenever you have questions.

All kinds of tools: No matter what type of project you're working on, you'll find the tools you need in this app. There are pixel-level editing tools, including Dodge and Burn options to selectively adjust lighting and color in specific areas of the image. You can also remove blemishes, apply filters and brush-on effects, and add text, borders, watermarks, vignettes, and other special effects. And when you're done, you can publish your finished pieces to PDF, PPT, and HTML.

Social engagement: One option, when you've added the final touches to your images, is to upload them to the ACDSee website. You can keep your photos private on here if you choose, but you can also share some with other users. And you can browse their photos and leave comments as well.


Freezing and crashing issues: We did encounter some issues with freezing and crashing while we were testing the app. In all cases, we could open the program and begin again, but this could get frustrating if it was a regular occurrence.

Bottom Line

ACDSee Pro 8 offers all kinds of options for managing and editing your photos. While you may never need all of the features included in this package, it's good to know you'll never want for anything. The app is free to try for 15 days, and the full purchase price is $199.99.

"Good and mature"

June 26, 2015  |  By Alex Corso

 |  Version: ACDSee Pro 8


All in all, it's a powerful and mature tool with nearly all you need to edit photos.
Set of tools and adjustments is perfect.
RAW conversion is great.
Cataloging is good.
Quite simple to use.


The main problem is that it's unstable. Crushes too often. This needs to be improved as soon as possible.
Batch processing is poor.
Pricing is a bit high.


I would recommend it to advanced photographers - the product has everything they would need.
The only misleading thing about the product - it pretends a professional tool, but it's not.
