Easy digital image management: ACDSee 7.0

ACDSee 7.0 makes it easier to organise, search and manipulate your digital images and this version offers faster-than-ever transfer and viewing speeds.

Using the device synchronisation feature, users can automate the transfer of images from memory cards, as well as specifying where they are stored and ensuring that each card always offers a specific amount of storage space.

Improving ease of use is a new context-sensitive toolbar that automatically adapts to tasks - from burning a disc of your photos to creating an album - the options change with you.

The Image Well allows you to view and browse your entire collection in one place, while a selective browsing feature narrows down searches, displaying photos based on category or date taken, for example. Images are displayed as thumbnails; click for the full-sized version.

The Image Comparison tool will be invaluable for professional photographers as it allows you to view up to four images side by side, comparing histograms and applying exposure filters. Additionally, RAW and JPEG 2000 images are now supported in most cases.

ACDSee also lets you crop, resize and rotate pictures, adjust contrast or brightness, or remove red-eye and for easy photo sharing you can create a slideshow (flash-based if you choose), burn a DVD or create a PDF for e-mailing. You could also share (up to 50 images) using ACDSee's free Web-based image-sharing service, SendPix.

Verdict If you deal with large image collections, then ACDSee would be great, but it's probably overkill for anyone who simply stores a few personal photos on their PC.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
