Expose Every Detail

Take charge of the spectrum by boosting individual colors or all tones in your images. Increase or reduce exposure, recover highlights, and add fill light, contrast, and clarity, as desired. Produce a glamorous impact with the Soft Focus tool. Like a diffusion lens filter, the Soft Focus tool provides dreamy blur by reducing harsh lines and intensifying colors.

Lighten & Balance

Tonal range, temperature, tint, midtones, and highlights are all yours to command.  Select the RGB color channel to adjust the entire range of the image, or select a specific color. With our patented Light EQ™ technology, you can rescue details from shadows and restore an image’s natural brightness and contrast. This tool intuitively lightens shadows and darkens highlights in specific areas without affecting the image as a whole.

Straighten it Out

Dull, blurry, crooked images are no match for ACDSee Photo Studio. You can draw a line across your image’s horizon, and the Straighten function will flawlessly correct its orientation to your line, ensuring it looks perfectly shot from the get-go. Then, achieve definition with a sharpening tool that is designed to preserve edge detail. Control the amount of sharpened pixels around each edge, coarse versus fine detail, and the appearance of noise.
