If so, ACDSee might be just what you need. I use ACDSee Pro all the time for tweaking photographs that didn't turn out exactly as I had intended and for most of my post processing tasks. You can also get really creative with tools that do things to your photos such as converting them to sepia, adding blur, cloning, and so on.

Speed is one of ACDSee's great assets and I can find my photos really quickly, even if they are on a DVD or external hard drive. ACDSee creates a data-base which automatically catalogues each image that you import from your camera. When you type in a keyword or file name, it finds it for you straight away - great if like me you have thousands of photos!

Another reason I think ACDSee have the best digital photography software around is the great tools for adjusting exposure and balancing light and dark areas. You can use the tools on auto or custom adjust them yourself. Sometimes this is just what I need to bring the image closer to what I imagined it would look like rather than what I actually shot. And the best thing about it this tool is that it incorporates what's called non-destructive editing meaning changes are alway reversible.

There are loads of other features for when you have more time to explore. Things like drop shadows, text, vignetting and so on. And if you want to store your photos online, ACDSee gives you a free account with 2 GB of personal online space. You just drag and drop your files into your personal storage space and then you can share them with your friends - or the whole world if you want!

I have been using ACDSee for many years now - it's dependable software and problem free. And so easy to use. Most importantly, you can try it out FREE so there is no risk to you.
