boxsmall-acdsee18ACD Systems has two new photo editing and management products, said to obviate the need for an expensive suite of products to be able to import, edit and manage their photos.

Pro 8 is said to be the most complete solution for the enhancement and control of image production for professional photographers. The standard version, ACDSee 18, offers high-end tools to produce professional quality photos and manage a photo library.

ACDSee Pro 8 also offers:
