ACDSee Pro for Mac

App enters beta testing

Organizing Flexibility
Beta testers will find that ACDSee Pro for Mac offers complete control over image storage on the computer. Quick and simple file organization stays true to the Mac philosophy with an intuitive drag-and-drop interface. Folder item counts help users see how many images and subfolders are stored in each location. Images can be organized into hierarchical custom categories that are virtual, meaning there’s no need to duplicate images.

With ACDSee Pro, users have live access to manage files on a hard drive and applicable connected devices, and can move, add, delete and rename folders and images within folders. ACDSee database information like categories and ratings, file properties like size and resolution, and EXIF data like ISO speed and Focal length is available in the Properties pane. Finding images with similar EXIF information is built in through the time-saving Auto Categories feature. Users can also complete common workflow steps like converting file formats and resizing and renaming files much more quickly using the batch tools (allows you to perform those functions on many files at once).

Printing Control
Like other ACDSee Pro for Mac features that save time, printing images is fast and efficient. Beta testers can print single images, multi-image pages and contact sheets, and can select output size, resolution and orientation. Preferred options can be saved as presets to streamline the workflow process.

Future Features
Additional features planned for subsequent beta releases of ACDSee Pro for Mac include professional nondestructive image processing, digital asset management leveraging IPTC, XMP, and EXIF metadata standards, support for video and document file formats, and integration with Mac OS X technologies including Quick Look and Spotlight.

ACDSee Pro for Mac is in beta testing at www.acdsee.com/proformac.
