ACD Systems International has launched the latest edition of its flagship software – ACDSee Ultimate Photo Studio 2022 – stimulate the digital asset management process and introduce facial recognition powered by AI.
ACDSee Photo Studio Ultimate supports RAW and layered editing in addition to file organization. In the latest version 2022, the company improved digital asset management with two new modes: Media mode and People mode.
“The two new modes will help photographers identify images in the blink of an eye, rather than browsing an abundance of images to find the file they are looking for,” says Frank Lin, COO and CTO.
“Photo Studio Ultimate 2022 is the ticket to a future where artificial intelligence will help elevate the vision of photographers.”
Media mode offers simplified global management of digital assets, such as finding, sorting, moving, organizing and sharing files. Users can add notes, hierarchical keywords, tags, categories, location data and customizable color labels, etc. The update also brings support for SVG files.
People Mode uses face detection and recognition technology to help users manage topics by merging, renaming, or deleting faces, or using AI Assistant tagging suggestions to group similar people together nameless.
Users can synchronize and transfer their files using the ACDSee Mobile Sync app, available on iPhone and Android.
The software also added new selection tools that use channels and filters for a greater degree of precision, introduced a new color wheel and luminance range that improve pixel targeting, and noise reduction can now be applied with the Develop brush.
Other additions include improved curve and gradient control, high ISO support, high dynamic range and focus stacking, and more.
