    "OK for some organization but buggy & not on par w PCver"

    August 12, 2012   |   By pics4fun

    Version: ACDSee 1.6

    Pros

    It has a fast search engine and there is a way to save metadata in the Pro version

    Cons

    Limited features compared to the PC version, very poor and slow Mac technical support, no support for Mountain Lion (the company offers an upgrade currently for $59 which is almost 40$ more than the new Mac OS itself!)

    Summary

    Use other programs like Lightroom if you need the photo editor(adobe upgrades to Mountain Lion for free), or Bridge, Picassa, or Finder if you only need to do searches and Tag images

    "uniquely unstable"

    January 03, 2012   |   By henk

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    I have used ACDSee since 2005, because the setup is what I want: Simple to use, enough editing stuff.

    Cons

    I bought all new versions in the hope of sensible improvements, but was disappointed. I even got an increasing number of warnings :"ACD has found an error and will close down". No other program has ever surprised me with something like that. On top of it, the help function is less than helpful...

    Summary

    I will stick with version 12 (not with the free 14) because I'm used to it (so laziness),but will not download any more for me disappointing new versions

    "Too expensive"

    December 23, 2011   |   By ppsm

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    I have used it before so find it user friendly, intuitive. It is a great tool alright.

    Cons

    But it cost three times what others do and there are free programs that meet my needs.

    Summary

    If they ever drop the price to a competitive level and offer the same features I would buy it

    "Some good, some not so good"

    May 20, 2011   |   By michael188--2008

    Version: ACDSee Pro 1.7.389

    Pros

    Looks good at the start. But lacks features in Pro 3.0.

    Cons

    Can't sort by capture time.

    Summary

    This is a huge omission on ACDSee's part.

    "Good program but overpriced"

    March 06, 2011   |   By felixdiaz3

    Version: ACDSee Pro 1.7.389

    Pros

    Excellent browser that does not need to "import" files into itself like other Mac programs do.

    Cons

    Everything it does in addition to its browsing capacity can be done better with Lightroom or Aperture.

    Summary

    Serving as a browser for any of your hard or soft drives, ACDSee for Mac is an excellent program, but it tries to do too much--most of what it does Lightroom or Aperture, or iPhoto can do and sometimes better. More importantly, it is over-priced.

    "View photos in simple folder format"

    January 27, 2011   |   By Gnothead

    Version: ACDSee Pro 1.4.309

    Pros

    The ability to see the photos in a simple file folder format in exactly the same order taken is much handier than Apple's iPhoto. Easy to work across the Win7 and Mac platforms with software that behaves consistently.

    Cons

    None. Very satisfied with the product.

    Summary

    ACDSee for the Apple works.

    "Still the best photo manager and browser BUT..."

    January 13, 2011   |   By JoLizCo

    Version: ACDSee Pro 1.4.309

    Pros

    - browsing of photos is convenient through scrolling or by using the spacebar
    - easy and quick photo management and filing

    Cons

    - very limited compared to the Windows version

    Summary

    Being a photographer, I have been using ACDSee (for windows) from the version 4 up to the current version 12. But switching to the Mac has made me look into this ACDSee Pro 1.4. I can't live without ACDSee photo manager and some other applications don't just cut it like ACDSee.

    "A lack not having the Windows version of ACDSee"

    October 30, 2010   |   By Xohlon

    Version: ACDSee Pro 1.4.309

    Pros

    Direct use of Finder to organize all photo's without to catalogue first!!
    So, appointing into different catagories is much faster and very clearly set out.
    As a former Windows user ACDSee was always my favorite.

    Cons

    Layout is quite simpel. Automatic processing like red eyes and much more is missing.

    Summary

    Please look at the very well developed version of Windows and all Mac users have a wonderfull pfoto programm!

    What's new in version 3.6.170
    • Optimized for Retina Display
      See what you've been missing. Every thing now looks sharper, from icons to text, when you're working on a MacBook Pro with Retina display. But most importantly, the increased pixel density means your high-resolution images will look incredibly vibrant. And the increased level of detail means your editing will be that much more precise.

    • Find Photos Faster
      Scan through your photo library as quickly as you shoot them.
    • Preview Folders
      Fast track to the contents of your folders, without having to open them. Folders now display up to four thumbnails of their images.
    • Hierarchical Keywords
      Stay on top of your digital assets by creating keywork hierarchies that span from the general to the very specific. Assign a keyword with the check of a box, for example "Park Guell", and the image automatically gets added to the higher keyword levels you created, "Europe Spain Barcelona." Click on a keyword in the Properties pane or use Quick Search to display all of the files assigned to that keyword. Create as many levels as you need to fully and accurately classify your assests. And when you export your files, your keywords stay embeded.

    • Better Black and White
      Take your monochrome images to a whole new level of creativity with the dedicated black and white mode. Make high-quality non-destructive hue-based brightness adjustments and experiment with saturation-based tinting that allows you to add a specific hue back into a black and white image.

    • Accelerate Your Adjustments
      Complete non-destructive adjustments on RAW, JPEG and other images, to perfect any photo. See your results applied instantly in real-time, go back and forth between settings, and preview before and after results of any adjustment in full screen. Edit and adjust your photos as much as you want, knowing that you can restore the original source at any time.

    • Tune Them Up
      Boost dull colors and underexposed areas. Instantly rescue details that are too light or too dark, without affecting other areas of the image. Adjust the brightness and contrast of different tone bands. And increase saturation while protecting skin tones with the Vibrance slider.

    • Batch and Save
      Apply the power of batch processing to your images including your RAW files. Perfect one image, then copy and past those processing settings to an entire group. Save those batch presets to automattically complete those tasks in a flash on future images. You can even share those presets with others.

    • It's All in the Details
      Rescue your high ISO images with ACDSee's significantly improved noise reduction technology to get smoother and more natural results, while retaining as much edge detail as possible. Use the Full Resolution preview window to see the results of your adjustments in fine detail, without needing to zoom in and out of your image.

    • Transform with Presets
      Easily experiement with different looks, from dreamy to gothic, by applying ready-to-go Develop presets. Or create your own style and save the processing steps as a preset to apply to a future image or group of images.

    • Get it Straight
      Correct geometry issues, including barrel, pincushion, and fisheye distorition. Fix the persfective on photos taken with telephoto lenses. Rotate your images at custom angles, without any loss. Crop your photo into an aesthtically pleasing Golden Ratio composition. And instantly correct alignment by simply drawing a line across your image.
