With the mulititude of photos we all take, comes the need for a digital asset management program: a visual database that helps you catalogue, organise, and sort and find pictures more easily. Arcsoft Photostudio Darkroom 2, the new version of Arcsoft's photo-centric image editor, now includes a browser that tries to do the job for you.

Arcsoft Photostudio Darkroom 2 is reasonably priced at £60, considering that the Process module offers just about every important editing tools for processing, correcting, and using digital photos that you'd expect to find in a much more expensive program. This includes professional-style sliders, levels, and histograms for adjusting white balance, color, exposure, sharpness, tone, and more. The enhanced Before and After views (which can be left and right, or top and bottom, or a split screen of either) provide excellent visual feedback as you work. If you like the collection of edits you've applied to one picture, you can save that procedure as a Recipe, and subsequently use it on other photos.

One new feature (which is also found in Arcsoft PhotoStudio 6) is Beautify, which automatically detects and smooths out wrinkles and other imperfections in a portrait - as long as the person is facing directly and fully into the camera. Arcsoft Photostudio Darkroom 2's editing of RAW, JPEG and TIFF files is nondestructive, so you can revert to the original picture and start over if you want to try other kinds of edits.

In the Print module, you just drag-and-drop your pictures into a layout template to fit one or many pictures into a single page. The number of templates is limited to seven, however, and you can't create custom layouts. The print engine includes support for a printer's ICC profile, for better, professional-style colour management.
