PHOTO STUDIO ULTIMATE 2020

Ultimate Creative Freedom

Get back out where you belong faster—in the field, behind a lens. ACDSee Photo Studio Ultimate 2020 combines GPU-accelerated layers, RAW editing, and world-class digital asset management with enough agility to swiftly satisfy your creative graphic and photography needs. Ultimate is armed with HDR, focus stacking, blended cloning, the ability to create your own color adjustments, improved facial recognition, more control over text and layers, and much more to give you the flexibility to create the composites, manipulations, and innovative graphics you’ve been fantasizing about.

PLAY INTRO

Harmonious Balance

High-dynamic-range imaging (HDR) is a trick in digital photography that is designed to achieve a wide dynamic range of luminosity by merging multiple images. Combine a series of images with different exposures to produce a single image with the maximum range of details in their shadows and highlights with the HDR tool.

WATCH TUTORIAL

Stay Focused

Sometimes, no matter what you do, it’s impossible to get every detail in your image sharp. With focus stacking, you can combine a series with different focal distances to create one image with a greater depth of field than a single exposure would allow.

WATCH TUTORIAL

Improved Face Detection & Facial Recognition

Organizing has never been this personal. Ultimate 2020’s Face Detection & Facial Recognition tool will find the humans in your photographs so you can name them for quick searching. ACDSee will immediately learn which names to put to which faces, and even will suggest possible matches. Control the queue of images to be scanned for faces. Save hours of tedious manual skimming by searching photos by unnamed, auto-named, and suggested names. Keep photos distinguished by client, family member, or person of interest, then embed face data in your photos for safe keeping.
