"The program is great," said Rick Stickles, a photographer in Sudbury, Ontario. "It basically covers everything you would want to do with photos."
In addition to its fast and easy browsing and editing capabilities, ACDSee Photo Manager 12 adds these new features for an enhanced user experience:
Sharing in the online world
Photographers can easily store and share images online without leaving the application with the new Online mode, which connects users to a free 2 GB account on ACDSeeOnline.com. This online integration provides a fast, convenient way to transfer images online, then store, share, manage and access images in their secure online account.
Folders or individual images can quickly and easily be dragged and dropped directly onto the secure, password-protected online storage space. Users are in control of their privacy settings at all times. Images can remain private, be shared with selected contacts or made public. To make it simple to share on today's most popular social networks, users can easily publish photos to other sites, beginning with Facebook.

Users can display all tagged photos with one click and can apply categories and ratings to each photo for better organization over a long period of time.
"It's quite common to take hundreds of pictures at important events like weddings and birthday parties," Wood said. "The new tagging feature makes it simple to find your best images for editing or sharing."
Using the new FTP uploader, users can now upload images to an FTP site directly from ACDSee Photo Manager 12. Simply create a profile for a FTP site, select the destination folder, then select any image resize options and upload images.
