The new ACDSee Photo Studio for Mac 8 delivers the power to fuel active imaginations. With behind-the-scenes upgrades to increase speed, ACDSee Mac 8 is a universal app that can run natively on both M1 and Intel-based Mac computers.
Power upgrades also come in the form of user-friendly GUI improvements and a customizable Indexer that allows Mac 8 to efficiently organize assets while the computer is idle. To color the full spectrum of your active imagination, Mac 8 offers a bevy of color-related enhancements such as Color LUTs, Color Wheels, Tone Wheels, Dehaze, Skin tune, and the addition of Contrast to the Color EQ. Active imaginations also need new experiences to thrive, so to keep you moving, ACDSee Mobile Sync is a quick portal for uploading images with on-the-fly edits.
Life’s Rich Tapestry of Color and Contrast
With a rich tapestry of new additions, Mac 8 gives you complete control over color and contrast manipulation to realize deep purples and tangerine dreams. New color and contrast features include Color LUTs for mapping RGB values, Color Wheels for targeting Saturation, Hue, Brightness, and Contrast, Tone Wheels for targeting Highlights, Midtones, and Shadows, Color EQ Contrast and Contrast Balance, and RGB Color Picker Display.
Mobile Sync for Active Imaginations
No need to hit pause. Use the ACDSee Mobile Sync app to send photos and videos directly from your mobile device into ACDSee Photo Studio on your Mac. This free app is available on iOS from the Apple App Store and for Android on the Google Play Store. When you return to home base, simply select and send to transfer your images, complete with any on-the-fly edits.
Move Faster, Reach Farther
With high-octane upgrades under the hood, ACDSee Mac 8 natively runs as a universal app on both M1 and Intel-based Mac computers, meaning faster start-up times and noticeable processing improvements. While user-friendly GUI improvements help with easier navigation, a customizable Indexer has been added to Mac 8 to efficiently organize assets while the computer is idle. With the Indexer on the job, traffic flows.
DAM it All
At the helm of ACDSee’s Digital Asset Management tools you can order your world however you wish. With the Mac 8 tool chest, you can easily sort, rate, add color labels and tags, construct and set categories and keywords.
Fine-tuning Clarity and Quality
To complement a hefty stack of photo editing tools such as the powerhouse Heal and Clone tools, Mac 8 offers two new pillars, Dehaze and Skin Tune. A stellar tool for restoring contrast, detail, and lost color in images, the Dehaze tool is a must for cutting through to clarity. For portrait photographers, the Skin Tune tool is a remarkable advance in smoothing away blemishes and flaws, giving your work a finish that pays in a priceless warmth.
