ACDSee Pro 5 released

Just in case there are any other ACDSee Pro users, and especially if you ain't had an email, ACDSee Pro 5 has now been released.

Full price US $239.99 always seems a lot to me, the noted upgrade price US $95.99 more than ideal, but the good news is that an email from ACDSee brought an offer that was too good to refuse US$29.99! I don't know if the email was sent to all potential upgraders or if it was selective.
Phew, to misuse the words of Victor Kiam 'I liked the company so much that I bought the product'

What's New in ACDSee Pro 5

Photo Developing
Smarter Sharpening
A new user-controlled edge detection mask slider lets you focus the sharpening effect more to edges and textures than non-textured areas.

Take your photos to the edge in either Develop or Edit mode using split-toning to create sepia or tinted black & white, Or add a tinted color to highlights and another to shadows to create a dramatic toning effect.

Photo Editing
Dodge and Burn
Target shadows, midtones or highlights for lightening or darkening with the Dodge and Burn tool, or selectively add vibrance, saturate or desaturate areas of interest.

Drawing Tools
Put your photos to work for you using drawing tools to add lines and shapes such as squares, circles and arrows to draw attention to certain elements in your image. You can also adjust the width, feathering and blending of your brush to create subtle or dramatic drawing effects.

Special Effects
Apply and fine-tune a range of pre-set effects quickly and easily with the Special Effects palette, now including:

Lomo Effect
Apply the popular Lomo effect to give an edgy, retro feel to your photos.

Collage Effect
Creatively display your photo in a collage of prints.

Orton Effect
Give an ethereal, pastel-like touch to your portraits and landscapes.


Color Labels
Use color labels to quickly identify groups within a large number of photos for processing. As your review your photos, quickly mark ones for different stages of your workflow. For example, assign files to color labels you have named such as upload, print, reject, develop or edit and then click a color label in the Organize pane to quickly display all of the files assigned to that label. Or use them in combination with the Group by, or Filter By features to refine your list. Color labels, like tagging, categories and ratings, are a way to set aside, organize, and group your photos without moving them into different folders.

Batch Export Tool
Save a group of photos to your specifications faster than ever with the updated ACDSee Pro 5 Batch Export tool. The batch export tool allows you to create presets for easily exporting groups of files to specified folders, file names, formats, colour spaces and dimensions.
