ACD Systems Releases ACDSee 9 Photo Manager - the Company's Fastest
and Easiest-to-use Photo Management Software To Date
Faster viewing, organizing, enhancing and sharing capabilities
significantly increase the speed and ease with which photo enthusiasts
can manage their digital photos
VICTORIA, British Columbia -September 13, 2006 - ACD Systems
International Inc. (TSX: ASA), makers of ACDSee™ photo management and
creative editing software and Canvas™ technical illustration
software, today announced the release of ACDSee™ 9 Photo Manager for
photography enthusiasts. With the release of ACDSee 9, ACD Systems once
again sets the industry standard for both speed and usability in a
digital photo management software.

With the release of version 9, ACDSee continues to be the fastest and
most powerful software available for viewing, organizing, enhancing and
sharing digital photos. Impressive new features in ACDSee 9 include
Quick View mode, desktop Showroom, the Shadow/Highlight tool, Private
Folders, Auto Categories, Calendar Events View, and more.

The Quick View mode in ACDSee 9 allows you to see your photos onscreen
instantly - whether you're opening an image attachment to an
e-mail, or double-clicking on a JPEG from Windows Explorer. ACDSee
continues to lead the industry with innovative advancements in photo
viewing. ACDSee Showroom brings photo memories right onto the desktop.
All a user has to do is set a folder path to their favorite shots, then
sit back and watch. A sleek movable window appears that displays their
photos in sequence or random.

ACDSee 9 also has a powerful new editing tool called Shadow/Highlight
that saves photos you would've probably deleted. The Shadow/Highlight
tool provides stunningly easy, instantaneous, and effective automatic
photo correction for photos that are either too dark or too bright. In
ACDSee 9 users can also fix red-eye with a single click using an
improved red-eye reduction tool.

Private Folders protect personal photos in a secure area so only the
user with the password can view them. If you have photos or files that
you want to remain confidential, just move them to a Private Folder,
set a password, and ACDSee Photo Manager keeps them under lock and key.

ACDSee 9's Auto Categories takes the pain out of organizing your
photos by doing it for you. When Getting Photos from any device,
ACDSee now automatically matches your photos up into convenient
categories based on their camera information, IPTC data, ACD database
information, and file properties.

The Calendar Events View automatically organizes your photos based on
the date they were taken. That means your photos get displayed in an
organized event list, which you can personalize with a unique
description for each event.

"The major industry trend in photo software is toward creating
simpler and faster applications combined with increased power and
effectiveness. ACD is leading the trend with its newest release of
ACDSee 9, a program that is easier-to-use than any previous versions
without compromising the company's commitment to adding innovative
features and time-saving solutions," said James Latham, vice
president of Marketing for ACD Systems. "ACDSee 9 is an excellent
combination of our legendary speed and some exciting technological
innovation. An example is ACDSee 9's Auto Categories feature, which
makes it much less time-consuming to organize photos; or the new
Shadow/Highlight tool - a powerful feature for instantly correcting
poorly exposed photos."
