ACDSee Photo Studio Standard 2018 is designed for amateur photographers who want to organize their images in a meaningful way so they can be found, shared and edited with the minimum of fuss. It also makes all sort of intelligent adjustments to images possible without long-winded processes.
Get organized and get improved images
Organizing your images so that you can find what you need just when you want it is something all image makers struggle with, especially if they don't have the right digital tools to help them. Helpfully, ACDSee Photo Studio Standard 2018 provides what the designers call a digital asset management module which makes finding, sorting and sharing images a breeze. What's more, you can connect to your library via a handheld device using a mobile app, great for when you want to show particular images off in a social way. The makers, ACD Systems International Inc. Software, already offer a complete package of photography software, from their Photo Editor to their Video Converter and Video Studio software. As such, the Standard edition of ACDSee Photo Studio 2018 is very much part of a wider family of programs each focused on a specific area of image creation. The Ultimate and Professional versions of ACDSee Photo Studio allow for a lot more functionality on the image manipulation front. For example, you don't get RAW editing with the standard edition. Nevertheless, there are some handy tools to try out, such as the noise reduction module and the ability to control white and color balances as well as helpful tint and saturation functions.
Using the standard edition
For users who want some level of image editing and a powerful organizational tool, the standard edition of the package is likely to be enough. Moreover, the functions users have access to, such as a number of useful keyboard shortcuts, are the same with the higher editions. So, if you upgrade down the line, there is nothing new to learn in terms of operation, helping you to remain productive. You just get more and more functions. The standard edition will connect and upload to social media sites while you continue operating on your workflow which is another great time-saving measure. Furthermore, the package allows users to gain access to over 100 pre-loaded borders and textures. The multimedia package is available with a thirty-day free trial but thereafter, users need to pay for a lifetime license. Amateurs who are new to digital editing and image management tools will find everything they need to learn about digital photography from ACDSee's handy array of video tutorials. Here, you can learn about anything from using the intelligent import tool to adding keyword panes to pictures that will help you to find what you are looking for at a later date.
The complete tool?
Although it has limited functionality, ACDSee's Standard edition of its 2018 Photo Studio allows users to edit in JPEG format and to manipulate their images in a variety of ways. However, serious photographers will always want to alter their pictures in their RAW format, so a higher level of the programme will be needed if this applies to you. On the other hand, the organizational side of the package is top-notch and if that's all you want, then the Standard edition will be enough.
