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 need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
