ACD Systems' Biggest Software Launch
ACD Systems' biggest software launch to date causes Adobe users to question their loyalty.
December 4, 2017 (FPRC) --
VICTORIA, BC - With the release of ACD Systems` latest installment of their signature Photo Studio product line, ACDSee emerges as a solid contender to Photoshop CC and Lightroom. With ACDSee Photo Studio Ultimate 2018 you can edit RAW images seamlessly, all within the one application with GPU-accelerated layers. The release introduces Smart Erase, giving Adobe`s Magic Wand a run for its money, and making it easier than ever to remove unwanted people or objects from photos.
"We`re excited to provide our users with even more creative editing tools that remove limitations from what they can do with their photos," said Mark Cosgrove, ACD Systems` Director of Production. "Smart Erase, for example, lets the user remove what they want from the image, and Photo Studio will fill in the area with a natural background. Liquify can be used to move pixels without changing them. And ACDSee Mobile Sync is going to jump-start their workflow by getting the images into ACDSee Photo Studio wirelessly."
ACDSee Photo Studio Ultimate 2018 is available for a lifetime license for $149 USD or through a subscription starting at $69/year, which provides users access to regular updates and upgrades. The program is currently only available for Windows-based computers. http://www.acdsee.com/en/products/photo-studio-ultimate
