VICTORIA, British Columbia – Professional photographers can now test the highly-anticipated editing features in the latest beta version of ACD Systems International’s ACDSee™ Pro Photo Manager for Mac workflow software.

The most recent round of public beta testing for Pro Photo Manager for Mac introduces the software’s new Process mode with editing controls that are planned for the final product release in 2011. Photographers will be able to test the program’s editing features for:

  • Exposure

  • Basic Lighting

  • Highlight Enhancement

  • Fill Light

  • Contrast

  • White Balance

  • Vibrancy

  • Advanced Color

  • Sharpening

  • Noise Reduction

  • Lens Distortion

  • Rotate

  • Straighten

  • Perspective

Non-destructive editing is still in development so edited files need to be saved as new files. However, ACDSee developers say non-destructive workflow, along with additional editing controls and improved graphical interface for Process mode, are planned for the beta 1.4 version.

Beta 1.3 also introduces support for managing and organizing files on external devices, even when those devices are no longer connected, importing from and managing files on WIA cameras and devices, database optimization and maintenance, improvements to the Search feature and other bug fixes.

More than 10,000 Mac users have participated in beta program so far and have offered feedback in 153 forum topics to ACD Systems developers for use in formulating the final version.

Users can expect additional options and features as Pro for Mac nears its final release date.
