What's New

Ideal as a companion to ACDSee or ACDSee Pro, or used on its own, Photo Editor 6 packs plenty of power. Correct lighting issues, fine-tune color, transform your shots with artistic effects, and combine various elements with the freedom to customize any detail you wish.


Harness the power of LCE

Take control of the brightness and contrast in your photos with the Advanced Lighting tool, powered by ACDSee’s patented LCE (Lighting and Contrast Enhancement) technology. Use the Brightening and Darkening sliders for precise edits, or adjust the internal curves by clicking and dragging directly on your photo. For a professional polish, you can also adjust the contrast, or add fill light to lighten dark areas.
