ACD Systems ACDSee Photo Studio is a digital photo management and image-editing program primarily used by personal digital photographers and home users. It is used to organize and touch-up photos taken by digital cameras. ACDSee Photo Studio was formerly known as ACDSee.

ACDSee provides a Windows Explorer-like interface for managing photos and includes views for organizing, viewing, and editing images. You can search and locate photos using keywords, thumbnails, custom categories, ratings, favorites, or other image metadata. You can also sort, group, show, or hide images using categories and other filters. The program's ability to organize and search through large libraries of photos is especially beneficial if you take a lot of digital photos.

ACDSee allows you to touch-up images and add effects to photos. For example, you can apply a stained glass effect, add text, and add custom borders and drop shadows to images. It also includes tools for fixing common digital photo problems, such as blemishes, red eye, and shadows. And no matter what edits you make, the program keeps backup copies of the original images so that you can revert back to the unedited versions.

ACDSee Photo Studio is a quality choice for viewing and editing images. It offers an interface familiar to Windows users, supports a vast amount of file formats, and helps you manage your digital photo library. For these reasons, ACD Systems ACDSee Photo Studio is a good option for the amateur photographer who wants advanced editing tools for a reasonable price.
