ACDSee Photo Manager 2009 features new tools to help you keep your collection organized and ready for sharing
VICTORIA, British Columbia – September 30, 2008 - ACD Systems International Inc. today today unveiled ACDSee™ Photo Manager 2009, the latest version of its powerful digital organization and photo sharing software designed especially for avid amateur photographers, scrapbookers and crafters.
Improved features combine to make ACDSee Photo Manager 2009 the quickest, most flexible and affordably priced organization software available for at-home use. Users enjoy real-time viewing, management and editing of multiple image files, whether they be treasured family photos or digital design elements for creative projects.
“The ACDSee team is actively seeking input from users about what they want and need to manage their growing digital image collections,” said Melanie Wood, community manager for ACD Systems. “The new functions we have built into ACDSee Photo Manager directly address feedback from our users and the larger community of avid photographers who want and need more options for quick and easy organization and sharing.”
Now, ACDSee Photo Manager adds these new features designed to help users manage their growing digital images, stay organized and share memories with family and friends:
Staying organized with new tools from ACDSee
The new Import tool puts this power into the hands of users, who can now rename, back up, categorize and add keywords to images as they are acquired from a camera, card reader, CD/DVD or other storage device. Used in conjunction with ACDSee Photo Manager’s Auto Categories, which automatically organizes images according to camera metadata, organization is completed as collections grow.
Protect and share custom organization
ACDSee users love that they can supplement camera metadata (IPTC and EXIF) with their own custom metadata, including categories and ratings, in ACDSee Photo Manager. Customers can now protect and share this custom information with other ACDSee users by embedding it into their images. Users who manage many image types can now include important information even with file formats that don’t support camera metadata, such as PNGs, PDFs and GIFs.
“We have heard from many digital designers and ACDSee users that custom metadata is an important feature,” Wood said. “For designers, it’s important to protect their copyright, and for users, they want to be able to easily search for and locate digital elements from their favorite kits.”
Frame and share photos
Photographers can quickly and creatively add a finishing touch with a custom border, drop shadow or edge effect, then share favorite images with friends and family with quick uploaders to online tools like flickr™. Users can show off photos in auto slide shows and screensavers that now include creative presentation options such as pan & zoom, black & white and sepia effects and music.
ACDSee Photo Manager automatically saves and preserves the original image file when it is first opened for editing within the software. Users can restore to the original at any time after making image edits like adjusting colors, cropping or adding creative elements, such as borders, frames and effects.
Users can build complex searches based on folder name, file name, location, custom categories, ratings and other metadata, then save time by storing custom search criteria for future use.
Pricing and availability
ACDSee Photo Manager 2009 is available for a free 30-day trial and for purchase for $49.99 (USD). Users can bundle this program with ACDSee Photo Editor 2008 for the combined price of $79.99 (USD). Photo Editor is the companion software that helps users of any skill level enhance photos and create their own digital layouts to print and share
