If you have Microsoft’s OneDrive, you are in luck. You have already been storing your photos there and you have access to them any time, on any device. But nowadays, with ACDSee’s OneDrive integration, you can access your OneDrive photos in ACDSee, and both your originals and any edits you have made in ACDSee will be continuously backed up into the cloud. You can also simultaneously manage your photos across multiple OneDrive accounts, copying and moving them from account to account.

What does this mean? What can you do with this?

Your photo collection can be synced between multiple PCs, meaning your photos are wherever you are. Photos you take on your mobile device and save to your OneDrive will automatically show up in ACDSee on your PC — there is no need to manually import them. In Manage mode, where you can view, organize, and batch edit your photos on a folder to folder basis, OneDrive is now available like any other folder. In the Folder pane, select your OneDrive folder from its location in your folder tree. Your OneDrive contents will now be visible in the File List pane. From here you can take your OneDrive photos in whatever direction you choose. All the power of ACDSee is available to you.

Perhaps you would like to perform a variety of corrections to a series of photos at once? You can use batch editing to convert formats and color space, correct lighting and color, resize, rename, etc. And if you find a correction configuration or combination that works really well for you, you can save that as a setting for future use.

You can also use Manage mode to organize and search through your OneDrive photos for that one special shot. You can classify your photos using hierarchical keywords, tagging, categorizing, labeling, and rating, to name a few. Add, manage, and edit IPTC metadata. View or assign the locations your images were taken with the Map pane.

If you would like to view your OneDrive photo (or video) collection on a file by file basis in full size, you can open them in View mode. Double-click the image you would like to view in the File List pane of Manage mode and it will automatically open in View mode.

For non-destructive RAW and JPEG image processing, you can open any of these images in Develop mode, if you are using ACDSee Pro or ACDSee Ultimate. You can improve white balance, tone curves, sharpness, lens distortion, reduce noise, lighting with Light EQ, and a variety of other elements of your photos non-destructively.

In Edit mode, you can apply fine-tuned adjustments while being confident that your originals are preserved. In this mode, there are a variety of tools available to you, such as the ability to make selections, add text, watermark, borders, drawings, brushes, blurring, and pixel targeting. Edit mode also has a full set of adjustment tools, like a collection of lighting and exposure tools, advanced color, color balance, clarity, and geometry and flaw removal tools. Most Edit mode tools can be used in combination with the Layered Editor in ACDSee Ultimate to create composites and photo manipulations.

After you have beautified your photos, you may wish to share them. To view your OneDrive options, such as sharing a OneDrive link, you can press Ctrl + right-click an image to display the Windows context menu within ACDSee.

Your photo collection is safe on OneDrive, but what you can do with those photos doesn’t have to stop there. Access your OneDrive folder in Manage mode in your ACDSee application to take your cloud-traveling photos wherever you want them to go.
