ACDSee Pro also supports RAW formats from the latest models from major camera manufacturers, including Canon, Nikon, Fujifilm, Konica Minolta, Olympus and Pentax. Additionally, photographers can leverage fully integrated IPTC support for interoperability with other software programs that support IPTC.

Photographers can also use ACDSee to print high-quality photos and contact sheets, create slide shows set to music and burn images to CD and DVD for presenting work to their clients.
