In the 1980s, imaging visionary, Doug Vandekerkhove foresaw the convergence of analog and digital media, and in 1993 he founded ACD Systems International Inc. to answer the call of photographers everywhere. Today, ACD Systems holds seven patents, has products translated into eleven languages, and has produced millions of ACDSee products in use in every corner of the globe. ACD Systems develops revolutionary software in offices in the United States, China, and Canada.
ACD Systems became a public company in 1999. It was first listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange in 2000, and then became a private company in 2007.
Also born in the 80s, Deneba Software created Canvas for the Mac platform. In 1993, Deneba released the first Canvas for Windows, and it was a runaway success. In 2003, ACD Systems and Deneba merged.
In recent years, ACD Systems has branched into image editing apps on a variety of mobile platforms. Each year we continue to augment our ever-expanding product family with solutions for professional and amateur photographers, businesses, graphic artists, technical illustrators, and everyone in between.

Clear & Concise Control
The Dehaze adjustment layer will remove dust, smoke, vapor, or other particles affecting clarity, and restore detail, contrast, and lost color. By using layer masks to control layers' transparency, you can hide and reveal mist in choice locations, reclaim focus for the subject, and direct the eye.
