    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."
