The Full Image Solution for Mac From ACD Systems

On November 10, 2021, ACD Systems released ACDSee Photo Studio Mac 8, a powerful and full-featured Digital Asset Management (DAM) tool.

With this new release, ACD Systems Photo Studio for Mac 8 becomes a universal app that runs natively on Macs with an Apple Silicon chip, such as the M1, for widespread performance gains. Added to this powerful upgrade, user-friendly GUI improvements make for easier navigation and a customizable Indexer allows Mac 8 to efficiently organize assets while the computer is idle.


In concert with these magnificent improvements, ACDSee Mac 8 comes loaded with a full spectrum of new color-related tools, such as Color LUTs, Color Wheels, Tone Wheels, Dehaze, Skin tune, and the addition of Contrast to the Color EQ. New color and contrast features offer precise targeting of Saturation, Hue, Brightness, and Contrast, Highlights, Midtones, and Shadows, and Contrast and Contrast Balance, all in easy-to-use, responsive tools.

With this release, not only do you get unrivalled DAM from one of the pioneering companies in the market, but you also get ACDsee Mobile Sync, a quick portal for uploading images with on-the-fly edits.
