As an all-in-one digital asset manager and editor with layers, ACDSee Ultimate boldly proclaims that you no longer need to purchase and run multiple applications to achieve your organizational and image editing goals. Combining GPU-accelerated adjustment layers, RAW editing, hundreds of filters and adjustments, and workflow-expediting tools perfected over decades, ACDSee Ultimate makes it easy to create professional-grade photography, original advertising, innovative graphics, and powerful art imagery.
Here is a small selection of some of our leading features…
• Develop Mode
Perform a wide range of parametric adjustments in Develop mode, specifically designed as a RAW conversion environment, allowing you to create instructions for adjustments, rather than adjusting the pixels themselves. Work on RAW, JPEG, and other image formats.
• Digital Asset Management
Add ratings, hierarchical keywords, categories, and location data to your images. Quickly identify photos for further processing with visual tags or customizable color labels.
• Non-Destructive Editing with Adjustment Layers
With the Layered Editor as your center for visionary parametric photo manipulation, you can add layers specifically built to achieve individual adjustments, with the ability to retouch them at any point. With a number of lighting, color, special effects, clarity, and detail-oriented adjustment layers added, you are well-equipped to fearlessly innovate.
• Automate with Ease
Save your precious time on repetitive tasks by recording any steps you make in Edit mode and applying them to other images, essentially recreating an entire editing process with a single click. Export your recordings to as many files as you like in an array of file types.
• Distortion Doctoring with Lens Correction
Correct barrel and pincushion distortion in your photos by applying the correction calibrated to fix the distortion inherent to the lens used — even fixing chromatic aberration. Map this correction to your lens and it’s set to correct every time.
• Strong and Agile
Fly through your workflow at unprecedented speed thanks to our GPU-enhanced layers engine and Develop mode adjustments, outpacing competitors and your expectations.
• Advanced Lighting Technology
Experience the ease of effortless exposure adjustment with our patented Light EQ™ technology. Light EQ™ makes it possible to adjust lighting in specific areas without affecting the image as a whole.
• Spectrum of Color Control
Intuitive color adjustment tools allow you to subtly fine-tune or dramatically change the hue, saturation, and lightness.
• Your Blank Canvas
Create new images, duplicate, and add elements to layers. Get professional results by combining images, targeting individual parts of images, controlling layers’ opacity, creating masks from selections, and much more.
• Secondary Monitor Support
With support for a secondary monitor, you can fast-track your project-based workflows.
