There are many excellent digital photo browsers on the market today. ACDSee 5.0 has definitely raised the standard with this new version mainly because with its new program is made for speed and customization. To begin with, this version of ACDSee is faster at loading pictures by almost double over its two major competitors, CompuPic Pro 6.0 and ThumbsPlus 5.0. ACDSee has chosen to have the photo-editing software included with ACDSee 5.0 not a part of the ACDSee main program, but included as a program that you can access from the main program as a respectable secondary program for editing the photos: This allows for a low overhead and hence, ACDSee is quite speedy in its main operations.
You can now organize your vast amount of pictures, photos, and graphics ways particularly suited to your individual need for viewing and displaying your work. When you access ACDSee 5.0 as below, you will immediately notice on the left side of the program many ways to categorize photos or for that matter, to find photos that you may have lost because you have so many. Take note below on the left of the display the categories including favorites, calendar, year, month, and day: Below you will see that I chose to view the pictures that I took on March 26, 2002.
ACDSee searches your whole computer for all the pictures you took on that particular day:You can also sort by the year as you see below. I thought it was amazing that I had 199 items in year 2003 when the year has not even arrived. It was no glitch in the computer as I was to find out, but rather, my older digital camera had the date set wrong to 2003 and ACDSee found the pictures: You can even categorize the pictures by the time of day that you took the pictures: Also you can sort your pictures by category. Included are certain categories as suggestions, but you can add to them as you wish, dragging and dropping your pictures directly into your categories: I added the category called “horses” and then dropped the horse pictures I had just taken into the category. I could very easily search all through my hard drive for ALL the horse pictures I have on disk: Besides the customization of the photos along many different themes, ACDSee is also customizable in regard to the programs interface. For example if you want to use a more extensive photo editing software like Photoshop, you can build in access to it right in ACDSee and to any other piece of software you choose as well: There is also the ability to do some simple editing without using either FotoCanvas or another photo edit right in ACDSee.
Below I am using the Exposure editor: Also connected with the Thumbnails is extensive detail related to each photo: The toolbars connected with ACDSee are editable and conformable to our individual needs, allowing for the choosing of just what you want to view: Also there is an extensive search engine for finding files on your hard drives: One complimentary feature of ACDSee is the ability from right within the program to share digital photos with others over the internet, creating an on-line photo album containing up to 50 photos for free viewing by anyone you wish for one month at a time. This feature is an excellent addition to the program. Below you can see how you begin in ACDSee by accessing SendPix 2.0 from the menu: Secondly, you prepare an email notification for those whom you wish to view the photos.
When you then click send, the photos are reduced drastically by viewable in size so that they can be speedily sent over the internet to the drop site for SendPix. Finally, below is what the pictures look like on the Internet Browser of your choice: Lastly, I want to say a word about the plugin additions to ADDSee 5.0 which definitely enhance the program. They have written the program to include plug-ins which perform specialized functions that include batch editing, slideshow creation, printing with pre-made layouts, and web enhancing software as well. Some of the software that I have taken a look at are: This plug-in allows you to create slide shows and screen savers. Add photos, music, and background to a variety of options, and even share the slide shows with others by saving them as executable files that they can view without having FotoAngelo on their system: This excellent plug-in for ACDSee or stand alone program allows for the creating and printing of multiple page layouts for your digital images. Say you want to send a sheet with many different pictures on the page, here is where that can be done with ease.
You begin by choosing or making the page layout that you want in the template designer: Next you drag whatever pictures, you want into the template, adding text captions if you wish, printing the template you see as the sheet on the right: FotoSlate includes an Image Editor that allows you to edit your individual images with tools like shrink to fit, rotate, flip, color and light levels, crop, blur, sharpen, de-speckle, sepia and colorize: This program allows for the creating of digital music videos adding transitions and special effects
Therefore, without wasting any time, try out FotoSlate on your own to understand the efficacy of image editing that constitutes a major portion of the editing technique that has been practiced for a long time while adobe photoshop for mac continues to be a popular choice for image alterations even today despite receiving stiff competition from other photoshop brands.
