ACDSee Pro 2 photo management software is now available for purchase ($130), offering a new level of control and convenience for photographers. ACD Systems International Inc. said the updated version features next-generation workflow management and RAW processing functionality developed and tested by 2,500 professional photographers from around the globe who participated in a beta-testing program earlier this year.
ACDSee Pro 2 is a one-stop software package for viewing, processing, editing, cataloging, publishing and archiving digital images. The company said the capabilities of the updated version leverage the power of today’s digital SLR cameras and support an expanding list of RAW-format files.
It also touts improved metadata features, including automated metadata-based file sorting capabilities, and read/write capabilities for XMP sidecar files and digital negatives (DNG). Enhanced editing is made possible through tools such as opacity and blending, channel mixer, and patent-pending shadow and highlight controls. Other key features in the ACDSee Pro 2, which is Certified for Windows Vista, include uploading to online services like Flickr and advanced browsing capabilities such as “Group By,” “Filter By” and “Events View.”
