ACD Systems has announced version 8 of its photo management software ACDSee. New features include a Quick Search bar, Photo Repair Tool, full IPTC metadata support, photo captioning and the ability to create VCD slideshows. IPTC metadata support allows photographers to add or edit caption, keyword, category and credit fields and the Photo Repair function will allow you to remove flares, lens scratches and fix red-eye. ACDSee 8 is available for $49.99 (approx. €40) or $39.99 (approx. €32) as an upgrade from ACDSee 7.
VICTORIA, British Columbia – Sept. 7, 2005 – ACD Systems International Inc. (TSX: ASA), makers of ACDSee™ photo management software and Canvas™ technical illustration software, today announced ACDSee™ 8 Photo Manager for photography enthusiasts. With the release of ACDSee 8, ACD Systems sets the standard in both speed and usability for enthusiasts who manage rapidly growing collections of digital photos.
According to the Photo Marketing Association, more than 20 billion digital images will be taken this year in the United States alone. As cameras and camera phones create opportunities to shoot and store more pictures, it becomes increasingly difficult for enthusiasts to find, organize and share their digital photos. Family photo lovers, nature photo enthusiasts and creative amateurs alike are discovering they require advanced photo management capabilities when their photo collections exceed 500 photos.
"Because I have thousands of photos in my collection, I need a faster, more powerful tool than what is currently bundled with digital cameras or through free software available on the Web," stated Scott Shuppert, owner of CAD/CAM Services. "With ACDSee 8's new Quick Search bar, for example, I can instantly find any photo, and easily access all the organizing, editing and sharing features I need, without having to open another window. ACDSee saves me time and allows me to confidently manage my entire photo collection."
Using ACD’s industry-leading digital imaging technology, ACDSee 8 continues to be the fastest and most powerful software of choice for viewing, organizing, enhancing and sharing digital photos. Impressive new features in ACDSee include the Quick Search bar, the Photo Repair Tool, full IPTC metadata support, photo captioning and the ability to create VCD (Video Compact Disc) slide shows that take the photo viewing experience from the computer to the living room TV.
With the introduction of the Quick Search bar, ACDSee 8 will find photos faster than any other photo management tool on the market. Simply type in a word and press Enter to return matches for that word within file names, keywords, categories and folders. The Quick Search bar eliminates the need to navigate through extensive Windows folder structures to find a desired photograph.
ACDSee 8 features numerous editing enhancements, led by the new Photo Repair Tool. Incorporating sophisticated cloning technology, this correction tool allows users to instantly remove flares, lens scratches and other unwanted imperfections from their photographs. Users can also fix red-eye in one simple step and experiment with 27 new filters and effects to add artistic flair to their photos.
ACDSee 8 gives users easy access to new creative options, including the ability to add customized thought or talk bubbles, descriptive captions, or essential information like photographer credits. Also new in ACDSee 8 is the ability to create VCD slide shows of favorite photos and videos, set perfectly in time to music, for playback in any media application or on a TV using a DVD player. Several slide show projects can be burned to the same CD, and there is even the option to include the original images on the CD, to share with friends and loved ones.
More advanced photographers can take advantage of ACDSee 8’s fully integrated support for IPTC metadata fields, including captions, keywords, categories and credit. Edit or add information to these fields and they will remain with the photos when opened in another application that also supports IPTC metadata, and vice versa.
“With the explosion of digital cameras and camera phones, the need for photo management software is greater than ever,” said James Latham, vice president of Marketing for ACD Systems. “ACD was one of the early leaders in developing photo management software, and has continued to invest heavily in research and development. We’ve conducted extensive user testing to ensure that we deliver the features that photo enthusiasts need most. The new features and overall speed of ACDSee 8 empower our users to make the most out of their images, whether they number in the hundreds or hundreds of thousands.”
