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.

What's new in version
  • While ACDSee Pro stands the test of time, it also continues to take on an ever-expanding list of improvements designed to get you the stunning results and ease of use you have come to expect from this trusted software. This established photo enhancement and management solution boasts an impressive array of new features facilitating parametric adjustments and filters, targeted brushing and selecting, stats at a glance, and other additions developed to get you back out where you belong -- behind the lens.
  • Shrewd Brushing - It has become edge-aware! This clever brush allows you to brush on exposure, saturation, fill light, contrast, sharpness, and clarity adjustments in Develop mode, and in most tools in Edit mode, while targeting specific color and brightness ranges.
  • Non-Destructive Special Effects: As an antidote to boredom, you can now parametrically add color overlays, a number of photo effects, and map colors to shadows and highlights respectively. Fine-tune how these effects interact with the image with the opacity adjustment and two dozen available blend modes.
  • Clear it up: Parametrically rescue photos captured through dust, smoke, vapor, or other particles while preserving details. Specify the level of detail to be saved while restoring contrast and lost color.
  • Flawless and Radiant: Without the foundation, the concealer, or even painstaking brushing, you can non-destructively smooth away blemishes and flaws with the Skin Tune tool, which automatically aims at skin tones.
  • Quiet Down: The very latest improvements in noise reduction make it now possible to preserve detail while still removing grainy noise artefacts. You can even set the level of detail to retain.
  • Optimized Workspace: Tear off, move, stack, and dock panes and toolbars, such as the Edit mode toolbar or Filmstrip, anywhere you like -- including your second monitor -- and savor your enhanced workflow efficiency.
  • Dashboard Definitude: Reap the benefits of ACDSee Pro's Dashboard and enjoy on-the-fly stats on your files, database, and camera usage.
  • The Big Reveal: With performance boosted, get an even better perspective on your collection by filtering Photos mode to display files from specific areas of your hard drive, your Microsoft OneDrive, or your entire collection. Set Photos mode to reveal orphans in sepia, and display pop-ups with customizable metadata.
  • Adaptable Brushing: You can now right-click to quickly switch between drawing with foreground and background colors with the Brush tool.
  • Plus More Blend Modes:Combine any of our new blend modes with opacity adjustments for even more creative control over the look of effects and adjustments.
