ACDSee Pro for Mac

Application enters beta testing

ACDSee Pro provides flexibility to quickly review just one photo or a series of photos. Users can scan through selected images at the click of an arrow key and use the filmstrip window to remain oriented within a large group of files. To add speed to the workflow process, photos can easily be rated and tagged in View mode.

Robust File Format Support
Unlike most photo applications, ACDSee Pro for Mac supports browsing and organizing of additional file formats, including videos and documents. Users can also view file formats which are not decodable by ACDSee Pro, if the files' native applications are installed on their systems.

Organizing Flexibility
Beta testers will find that ACDSee Pro for Mac offers complete control over image storage on the computer. Quick and simple file organization stays true to the Mac philosophy with an intuitive drag-and-drop interface. Folder item counts help users see how many files and folders are stored in each location. Images can be organized into hierarchical custom categories that are virtual, meaning there's no need to duplicate images.

With ACDSee Pro, users have live access to manage files on a hard drive and applicable connected devices, and can move, add, delete and rename folders and images within folders. ACDSee database information like categories and ratings, file properties like size and resolution, and EXIF data like ISO speed and focal length is available in the Properties pane. Finding images is fast and easy with complex browsing capabilities and instant thumbnail retrieval. Users can also complete common workflow steps like converting file formats and resizing and renaming files much more quickly using batch tools, which enables these functions to be performed on many files at once.

Printing Control
Like other ACDSee Pro for Mac features that save time, printing images is fast and efficient. Beta testers can print single images, multi-image pages and contact sheets, and can select output size and orientation. Preferred options can be saved as presets to streamline the workflow process.

Future Features
Additional features planned for subsequent beta releases of ACDSee Pro for Mac include professional non-destructive image processing; digital asset management leveraging IPTC, XMP, and EXIF metadata standards; browsing of unconnected devices; and integration with Mac OS X technologies including Quick Look, Cover Flow and Spotlight.
