Your foundation for an effective workflow is digital asset management. An organized collection allows you to work smarter and faster, so you can spend more time behind the lens. ACDSee Pro 6 can handle both catalog- and browser-based workflows so you can manage your digital assets any way you like.
Why spend time importing your photos to a separate library when they're already on your system? When you start ACDSee Pro 6, you're connected directly to the folders on your computer, so you can browse and work on your files right away.
Put the flow in your workflow. Organize your photos as you import them from your camera or storage device. Catalog files for improved speed and performance. Customize your workspace to suit your individual style, and access external editors with seamless simplicity.
Perform a range of workflow steps on batches of images at once. Convert formats and color space, resize and change filenames, and easily save them as presets to work even faster the next go around.
Use the batch process to resize your images and resolution to go from RAW to web instantly. Social Media here you come!
