"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."
It seems like ACDSee 10 was just released, but here we have a new version of the venerable image management program - and it looks like calling it ACDSee 11 wasn't in the cards, so meet ACDSee Photo Manager 2009. It doesn't quite roll off the tongue, but it's a more descriptive name for a very useful product. I use the Pro version of the software (now at version 2.5) but the core functionality is very similar: I use ACDSee every day to view, edit, and resize images. In the time it takes Photoshop Elements 6 to start up, I can open, resize, and save an image using ACDSee. The batch tools are also invaluable when it comes to re-naming groups of files, altering metadata informaton, and many other functions. This is definitely very useful software, and well worth the $49.99 USD asking price.
