Editors' Review

+

AcdSee 18 is a great photo management application that provides organizational, viewing, and editing tools, as well as the ability to easily upload and share your albums.

Pros

Good for beginners: Many of the professional-level solutions for photo management are difficult to figure out at first. AcdSee 18 is quite manageable, however. The four tabs across the top of the screen make it easy to switch between the Manage, View, Edit, and 365 program modes.

IPTC and EXIF editors: From the Manage pane, you can access and edit IPTC and EXIF data for your photos with ease. This is a great way to make last-minute edits before uploading photos to a permanent collection.

Editing tools: AcdSee 18 performs most of the editing functions you're likely to need. Tools like red-eye reduction and a repair tool allow you to make quick and easy alterations to a picture before publishing it.

Cons

Poor installation experience: AcdSee's standard installation auto-launches a random website upon completion. It also installed a desktop icon without asking for permission.

Bottom Line

If you don't already have a photo solution, AcdSee 18 provides you with most of what you need within a single product. Unless you need very specific tools that are only available in other programs, you should be able to completely control and manage your photo collections from within this single program.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of AcdSee 18.

"It can't read RAF/raw files from Fujifilm X cameras"

October 01, 2014  |  By walkerbarren

2014-10-01 09:06:52  |  By walkerbarren

 |  Version: ACDSee 18 18.0.0.226

Pros

I love its UI, easy to work with

Cons

I am waiting from 2013 that ACDSEE can cope with RAF files from my Fujifilm x100s. No way. It is a paid program,and free software like Faststone can read easily this type of raw files, but year after year ... Acdsee fails to manage with x-trans sensor images. Unbelievable.

Summary

Useless for X Fujifilm cameras files

"Thanks for the virus."

June 02, 2014  |  By JoeCool32

2014-06-02 15:44:46  |  By JoeCool32

 |  Version: ACDSee 17 17.1.68

Pros

I don't know. I uninstalled it as soon as my anti-virus software detected a virus or malware being installed, along with your software.

Cons

It came with it's own virus.

Summary

I had also tried to download a different photo editing software package that night, only to have it try to install a virus/malware, too.
I won't be using cnet.downloads ever again.

"Good. Could be better."

May 26, 2014  |  By GreyClaw

2014-05-26 14:57:22  |  By GreyClaw

 |  Version: ACDSee 17 17.1.68

Pros

This (paid) version has been much more stable and noticeably more responsive than recent versions especially when parsing RAW images.

Cons

Still too... desperate to be the "Jack of All trades", and still slow and prone to freezing/hanging.

Summary

The amount of formats that are supported and the overall polish still the selling point and the reason I keep coming back. Been a customer since ver 2 and this (paid) version has been much more stable and responsive than the previous version that I had bought (ver. 12 and 15).

I find that the feature creep/bloat is the main annoyance for me and many other users. I have never wanted my image-organizer to play media files, or display font files, as I have other programs that perform those functions well.

Boot up is now about 16 sec--slow, but still much better than v.15 . That is while parsing My Pictures Library (which spans 2 external drives).

I would be exceeding happy with a stripped-down, we-just-organize-images "portable" version.

"Too many crashes and conflicts"

November 08, 2013  |  By chiappy

2013-11-08 09:37:36  |  By chiappy

 |  Version: ACDSee 17 17.0.41

Pros

Easy to use very user friendly

Cons

Unfortunately crashes and locks up the machine cannot work well ADOBE PRODUCTS like Photoshop or lightroom

Summary

Best for file management but lacking. NO TECH SUPPORT to sort out the conflicts freezing and crashing problems. Constantly optimizing does not help

"Bad Upgrade Policy"

September 26, 2012  |  By sblakeok

2012-09-26 14:38:56  |  By sblakeok

 |  Version: ACDSee 15 15.0.169

Pros

None. There are free products that do much of what this program does.

Cons

I purchased Version 14 and 15 days after I installed it, Version 15 came out. I requested a free upgrade since it had only been 15 days and they asked $19.99 for an upgrade. Customer service is via email and their automated response indicates it takes 2 to 3 days for a response.

Summary

I feel it was unethical to sell a product when a new version was less than 30 days away. Most software companies gladly provide a free upgrade in cases like this.

"Seriously TICKED. Must Register Even to TRY!"

July 26, 2012  |  By B00kWyrm

2012-07-26 07:27:08  |  By B00kWyrm

 |  Version: ACDSee 14 14.2.157.0

Pros

I was unable to find any.

Cons

Unable to even try the product without registering.
Not willing to register on a product that I am only trying.

Summary

This practice is very outdated.
Most publishers do not do this.
ACDSystems should wake up and join the 20th Century,
Better yet join the 21st!
If your product is good, people WILL come back and register ...
WHEN the trial runs out... after all, by then they will have seen that they want it enough to buy it.
Until then, you don't need any of our personal information,
and we don't need your emails.
I'll be looking elsewhere!

March 26, 2012  |  By sellyourmom

"Better than nothing"

October 12, 2011  |  By narnia

2011-10-12 03:19:36  |  By narnia

 |  Version: ACDSee 14 14.0.110.0

Pros

This software was a good choise in the 90s. Now on you could find easier and better free software.

Cons

Why had this company separated the software in 3 pieces (Photomanager, Photo Editor and Photo Slate), the answer is that will be much more expensive for you. Adobe Photoshop Essentials is lightyears better than this softwares together

Summary

Don't buy it, it is unstable och stupid to register.
And it is not an easy one to work with.

What's new in version 19.1.0.420
ACDSee 19 - Organize, edit, and share your photos with ease.
  • Collections- NEW
    Group your photos in one place for a simple take on highly complex organizing and easy searching. Create Collections to fast-track the right photos to the right workflow, such as printing, batch editing, sharing to web, developing, or accumulating for a slideshow. Build hierarchies within Collection Sets for further structure to help you drill right down to the photos you want. Or construct Smart Collections containing a search, which you can return to at any time. Utilize an extensive list of search variables, including relative dates, date ranges, metadata, and file properties. Smart Collection's search will update its findings as files are added to the database zero effort on your part.
  • Photos Mode- NEW
    Experience the entirety of your photo collection by date. Gain new perspective on your memories by browsing it by year, month, or day. Conveniently locate your place in giant collections thanks to pop-up dates showing you exactly where you are in time. View it all together, or just the photo collection stored on your Microsoft OneDrive. Quickly move from this panoramic chronoscopic view to organizing, viewing individual files, or taking them directly into Edit mode for adjustment.
  • Lightroom Migration - NEW
    Is it time to make that big transition? Tired of importing your photos into an application instead of the application just reading them straight off your hard drive? Well, we can make that change over a little smoother, a little less painful, and a lot less work. A few clicks and your Lightroom database will begin importing into ACDSee, keeping your Lightroom collections intact, viewable and editable in ACDSee's Collections tool, and allowing you to maintain and still benefit from your long hours of rating, keywording, and labeling even after you've transitioned to ACDSee.
  • 4K Support - NEW
    Distinctive, clear, crisp. These are just a few of the words used to describe ACDSee's new high DPI support. View your images on 4k monitors in sharp, uncompromising detail no number of words can describe.
  • Painless Color Matching - NEW
    Pick up that exact shade you need with the Eye Dropper tool. Populate the outline and fill of your drawn shapes with any color from inside your photo or from outside the app itself..
  • Microsoft OneDrive Integration - NEW
    With your OneDrive folder now integrated as a root node, you can instantly access your cloud content from Manage mode, Photos mode, and from 365 mode. This allows you to organize, view, edit, and share, any of your image collection no matter where it's stored, without moving it out of the cloud. Include the entirety of your OneDrive collection alongside your hard drive collection when viewing by date in Photos mode.
