While we’ve been busy moaning and groaning over the importance of better image organization and management applications, ACD Systems has been quietly bringing some very solid software solutions in this area to market. Their latest, ACDSee 9 Photo Manager takes this important solution one step further. “With the release of version 9, ACDSee continues to be the fastest and most powerful software available for viewing, organizing, enhancing and sharing digital photos,” the company announced. New features in ACDSee 9 include Quick View mode, desktop Showroom, the Shadow/Highlight tool, Private Folders, Auto Categories, Calendar Events View, and more. ACDSee 9’s Auto Categories takes the pain out of organizing photos by doing it for the user. When getting photos from any device, ACDSee now automatically matches photos up into convenient categories based on their camera information, IPTC data, ACD database information and file properties. Expect an MSRP of $39.99.
