ACDSee Ultimate 8 offers pro photography features like workflow management, cataloging, and archiving. It also sends email and creates CDs, DVDs, PDFs, and slideshows. A fully customizable workspace is organized around Modes: Manage, View, and Edit/Develop, plus 365 Mode, which integrates ACDSee Ultimate 8 with related software. New features include Pixel Targeting, PicaView, 1-Step EQ, Smart Indexer, and SeeDrive.

Pros

Quick setup: ACDSee Ultimate 8's Quick Start Guide helps you convert databases, set preferences, catalog files, or learn more.

Extensive editing: While the app excels at organizing and managing your image catalogs and databases, it's also a top-quality image editor with layers, palettes, and filters, plus quick fixes for issues like red-eye.

SeeDrive: The new SeeDrive manages your cloud folders and shares, including privacy settings, from a sidebar window. Like ACDSee Ultimate 8's other windows and sidebars, the SeeDrive window can be closed, minimized, undocked, or floated.

Rights management: ACDSee Ultimate 8 manages pro-level EXIF metadata, such as Intellectual Gene, IPTC Code, Job Identifier, Credit Line, Copyright Notice, and Rights Usage Terms.

Cons

Registration and activation: Some of ADCSee's features require an active account, but you shouldn't have to provide a phone number to create one. Initially, ACDSee Ultimate 8 wouldn't recognize our new account when we tried to activate it.

Bottom Line

ACDSee Ultimate 8 brings a lot to a crowded software sector. This powerful and easy-to-use suite challenges tools that cost more -- sometimes quite a bit more.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of ACDSee Ultimate 8.

What's new in version 10.1.0.867
  • As the first digital asset management software with layers, ACDSee Ultimate 10 is perfectly positioned to fulfill an unparalleled number of creative graphic and image composition needs. With the addition of a number of parametric adjustments and effects, targeted brushing and selecting, improved performance, stats at a glance, and much more, ACDSee Ultimate 10 offers the complete flexibility to create the image composites, photo manipulations, and innovative graphics you've been envisioning.
  • Edge Detection Selection: The Brush Selection tool allows you to accurately isolate the subject in a photo based on pixel criteria that you assign. Target your selections to specific color and brightness values for the ultimate precision edge awareness tool. Combine this with the Delete Pixel option to make image composites, and hone in on minute details, such as hair in portraits, without ever breaking a sweat.
  • Develop Mode Special Effects: Parametrically add color overlays and photo effects to your images, and map colors to shadows and highlights respectively. Tweak how effects interact with the image by adjusting opacity and utilizing any of two dozen blend modes.
  • Smart Brushing: This brush went to college. Smooth on exposure, saturation, fill light, contrast, sharpness, and clarity adjustments in Develop mode, and in most any tool in Edit mode, with a brush you can set to specifically target particular color and brightness ranges.
  • Your Workspace, Your Way: Make your interface yours. Hide or customize mode buttons. Tear off, move, stack, and dock more toolbars and panes than ever before, including the Edit mode toolbar and the Filmstrip. Move them to your second monitor and be blown away by your speedy new process.
  • Selection Freedom: Delete selected pixels as needed. Customize the appearance of the selection overlay for accessible, no-nonsense selecting.
  • Advancements in Layers: Move layers on stacks of images non-destructively. Make masks from selections. Feather and invert masks, and stay on top of what's happening with customizable mask overlays. Enjoy a performance increase with the layers engine seamlessly running on your GPU.
  • Get out from Under the Weather: Now available as a non-destructive adjustment, the Dehaze tool is designed to rescue images taken through dust, smoke, vapor, or other particles obscuring the clarity of your image, and to restore contrast, detail, and lost color.
  • Skin Deep: No need for foundation, concealer, or precision editing. The Skin Tune tool can parametrically even skin tone, restore glow, and smooth away blemishes and flaws with no time wasted.
  • Keep it Quiet: Take advantage of dynamic, non-destructive noise reduction, now featuring settings developed for preserving the details in your images. Set the level of detail to save to ensure you lose nothing but the noisy artifacts.
  • View from the Top: In addition to striking performance improvements, there's now even more ways to filter Photos mode to display photos from specific areas of your hard drive, Microsoft OneDriveÃ?¢?Ã?¢, or your entire collection. Set it to quickly identify orphans in sepia, and display pop-ups with customizable metadata.
  • Speedy Statistics: Quickly access and browse file, camera, and database statistics.
  • Plus More Blend Modes: With a number of new blend modes, used in combination with opacity adjustments, you can take even more creative control over the look of combined layers.
  • Adaptable Brushing: You can now right-click to easily switch between drawing with foreground and background colors with the Brush tool.
