Offering a non-destructive editing environment, ACDSee Ultimate 10 from ACD Systems is an advanced image editing application featuring a layer-based workflow for producing fine-tuned selective image adjustments. Beyond editing, this program also suits a complete post-production workflow, and incorporates a host of file management tools for organizing an entire library of photos. Divided into several Modes, this software has distinct environments for managing files, previewing images, and editing photos. Within Manage Mode, you are able to organize, sort, and source files from a variety of locations, including cloud storage hosts and Microsoft OneDrive. Photos/View Mode is used to preview imagery as well as apply some image adjustments in a non-destructive manner. Finally, the Develop/Edit Mode can function as a non-destructive environment for adjusting the look of raw files using a variety of tools for creative and corrective editing. Additionally, a Dashboard Mode is also available for gathering data as to when and where images were taken, as well as compilations of metadata organized in graphs, file locations, and other practical details.

ACDSee Ultimate 10
  • Develop Mode - This mode is dedicated to making non-destructive edits, and is intended for use when converting raw image files. Within this space, you create rules and instructions for specific adjustments, rather than alter the original file's content.
  • Digital Asset Management - Categories, ratings, tags, color labels, and hierarchical keywords can be applied to imagery to help organize, sort, and locate specific files.
  • Non-Destructive Editing and Adjustment Layers - Dedicated layers are available for making single adjustments, which can be re-edited at any point without affecting other edits made to the image. Adjustment layers can be made to affect lighting, color, special effects, clarity, and some detail optimization controls.
  • Automated Adjustments - ACDSee Actions can be used to record and batch-apply any of the Edit Mode adjustments in an automated manner.
  • Lens Correction - Both barrel and pincushion distortion can be corrected as well chromatic aberrations and other various distortions. The corrections can be mapped and saved as a profile for later use.
  • Light EQ - Helping to produce HDR-like effects, Light EQ can intelligently lighten shadows and darken highlights to produce an expanded tonal range with a single click.
  • Layers and Canvas - By combining blank canvases and a layer-styled editing workflow, you can easily make unique compositions comprised of various elements while opacity and masking controls let you produce a natural, finished look.
  • Adjustment Brush - A unique edge-aware brush allows you to selectively apply brightness, saturation, contrast, sharpness, and clarity adjustments when working in Develop mode, as well as many other functions in Edit mode.
  • Special Effects - Color overlays, photo effects, and creative tones can be applied to imagery in a non-destructive manner, and the effects can be fine-tuned using blending and opacity controls.
  • User Interface - A customizable user interface lets you remove, move, stack, and dock several of the tool bars and panes to suit your own workflow.
  • Dehaze - This tool helps to rescue detail, contrast, and color in images made in dusty, hazy, or smoky environments.
  • Skin Tune - Automatically smooth out blemishes and flaws while maintaining radiant skin tones.

  • Move Tool - Helping to fine-tune object positioning, the Move tool lets you adjust, nudge, rotate, and push layers into place for perfect registration.
  • Merge Layers - Once finished with a layered composition, all of the layers can be merged to produce a lightweight file with all of your previous edits on one canvas.
  • Copy Selections - Selections from images, or entire images, can be copied onto new layers for selective editing control.
  • Layered Additions - Text, watermarks, and other additions can be added via their own layers to permit re-editing without affecting the background image.
  • Hide Layers - For an uncluttered workflow, layers can be hidden for a more straightforward editing approach.
  • ACDC Format - The flexible .acdc file format preserves layers when saving, allowing you to re-edit individual layers when re-opening a file.
