You're not the average Joe. You've got more pictures.
Your photo collection is growing daily. Family pictures, travel pictures, pet pictures, pictures of your home and garden – with so many photos to look through, how will you find and organize your best ones?
Well, it's easy if you have a good photo management software. But if you don't, your valuable memories will end up getting lost in the clutter. That's why you need photo software that helps you find and organize your photos quickly, reliably, and frustration free.
ACDSee 8 Photo Manager's razor-sharp search tools help you sift through thousands of pictures effortlessly, find the best ones, and sort them into common sense categories that make them easy to find later.
Wouldn't it be nice to organize your photos like an expert, without having to spend tons of time and money learning complicated digital photo software?
That's exactly what ACDSee 8 can do for you.
Find your one photo in a million, and easily manage the rest. Count on powerful organizational tools – like customizable folders and categories - that make it easy to keep track of, preserve, and enjoy the memories you hold dear.
Find your pictures in a snap with the Quick Search Bar. Touch up your pictures using photo editor features like the Photo Repair tool. Organize your pictures into a photo album. Create inspiring Flash slide shows set to your favorite music. Burn your images to CD or VCD. Share your photo albums with friends and family online or by e-mail. Plus, with a range of failsafe storage features, you'll never lose a single photograph.
Find your pictures faster with the new Quick Search bar.
Finding your photos is fast and easy with the new Quick Search feature. All you have to do is type in a word (not case sensitive), and ACDSee returns matches for that word in image captions, author information, and notes. You can also choose to include any matches found in file names, keywords, categories, and folders.
Video slide shows with custom audio.
Use the new VCD (Video Compact Disc) support to put your creative slide shows to music, and watch them on your television or PC. VCD supports NTSC/PAL, and your saved videos can be played back in any media application. Save and reuse VCD projects, and even watch a live preview of the slide show you’re working on.
Add several different slide show projects to the same CD, and conveniently burn original images to CD as well. Mix multiple audio tracks with high-resolution photo images and video into your slide shows, without the hassle of learning overly complicated software. ACDSee also lets you set your slide show to fit the length of any audio track using a handy timeline view.
Create CDs and DVDs quickly and easily.
The new Burn Basket makes creating CDs and DVDs drag-and-drop easy. Individual photos or entire folders - you name it, the Burn Basket can take it. Make hard copies of your photo collections faster than ever before, then give them as gifts to family and friends.
Improve organization by creating new folders within the Burn Basket, and update ACDSee Photo Discs on multi-session CDs and DVDs. Easily manage your disc space by checking the updated estimate of the size of the disc, and how much space will be used up by your current project.
The Burn Basket completely eliminates the need for a third-party burning tool, and can also be used to create archives and backups of your files.
More powerful editing tools
The new Photo Repair tool fixes common photo defects such as blemishes, flares, lens scratches, and other imperfections, so your treasured photo memories always look great, no matter how you choose to show them. Choose from either the Clone or Heal options to repair any area of a photo.
You can also:
- Fix red-eye with a single click.
- Automatically crop your selections after custom angle rotations.
- Crop a selection from the Edit menu in the Viewer.
- Access handy exposure warnings in the Viewer.

Access to IPTC metadata.
Real enthusiasts can take advantage of fully integrated support for IPTC metadata, including Captions, Keywords, Categories, Credit, Origin and others. IPTC is used for standard newswire images and allows you to add keywords to your photos. Plus, keywords stay with your photos when you share them.
View and edit your IPTC information and overlay it on any photo in the Viewer, or on thumbnails in the browser. Display IPTC info in your slide shows, or sort your file lists and compare images based on IPTC data.
Improved Properties display
View more file information simultaneously in the Properties pane, such as image size in inches, number of pixels per inch, and uncompressed file size.
Add text to photos.
Write clever, humorous, or descriptive text captions, and add them to your photos just for fun. You can even add styles and special effects to the text you write, truly making your memories worth a thousand prints. Styles include talk and thought bubbles, as well as drop shadows. Add up to 13 special effects such as Blur, Ripple, Shift and Twirl.
Take advantage of improved HTML albums.
The improved HTML Album feature makes posting and sharing your photos on the Web easier than ever before. Page layout controls now have mouse-over tips you can really use. Control the look of your Web presentations by setting the delay interval for photos in your Web slide shows.
Be creative with slide shows and screen savers.
Improved mouse and keyboard functionality allow for easier pausing and scrolling through your slides. Create slide shows with associated audio files, mix multiple audios, and save time by setting the same audio, transition and caption to multiple selected images.
Protect your photo folders
With the Sync feature, synchronize folders on your PC with network folders or an external hard drive to protect you from local hard drive failure. You can even synchronize multiple folders and schedule when the synchronizations occur.
Control EXIF info for large numbers of photos
Being able to control your photos in batches saves you valuable time and effort. Batch Set Information allows you to update EXIF (Image Description, Artist, Copyright etc.) and DB (caption, date/time, author, notes etc.) info, and view previews of new values for any number of images all at once.
Working with large numbers of photos simultaneously is a breeze. Create new keywords and categories, copy values from one file to another (e.g., copy DB notes to EXIF comments), map values from one file to another, and create and apply stored text on a field-by-field basis.
The Start up screen provides an introductory overview of features to help new users get started quickly. The Task Pane provides easy access to common features, so you don’t have to waste any time fumbling through the applications.
