The range of editing tools available in ACDSee Photo Editor 2008 will help you to change the properties of your digital photos. You can shrink or enlarge an image, or specify the size in which you want to print it. Besides, you can remove unwanted parts of the image by cropping it, or by re-centering it. Rotate or flip your photos to create innovative effects.

You will be able to fix and correct your photos with its professional suite of tools. Or you can use the Auto-adjustments features for fast and automatic corrections - red-eye reduction, colour balance, exposure correction, and contrast enhancement are just some of the things you can control automatically. And with the Auto Fix function, ACDSee Photo Editor 2008 will do all of those at once, with a single click. You may also want to add digital effects to your photos, like blur effects, text, figures, background colours, and many more.

All of these changes can be easily applied by selecting the desired effect from the Adjustments menu, and then clicking on one of the thumbnails provided, thus allowing you to preview all the range of possible results. If you prefer, you can manually set up the parameters needed, for a finer adjustment.

ACDSee Photo Editor 2008 includes a large collection of creative tools that will allow you to transform your photos into scrapbook pages, birthday cards, birth announcements, wine labels or party invitations!
