If there is one term that is more overused than any other right now it is artificial intelligence. AI seems to be being added to absolutely everything right now, and in the world of photography, this is no more so than image editing.

ACDSee Photo Studio Ultimate has released its 2024 version that packs in a whole heap of new AI-powered editing features that hope to keep up with the Adobe’s of the world. This latest iteration introduces a host of cutting-edge features, including three powerful Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered tools: AI Keywords, AI Sky Replacement, and the AI Object Selection tool. Additionally, a new non-destructive Masking group in Develop Mode adds more creative capability to the software for in-depth editing.
