Editors' Review

+

ACDSee Pro 8 is a comprehensive tool that allows you to organize, edit, and publish your photos, all through one convenient and intuitive interface. Because it does offer so many options and features, this program is a good option for users with a wide variety of needs.

Pros

Lots of guidance: There are all kinds of resources that come with this program to help you access all the features and get everything out of it that you can. The first time you open the program, you'll be greeted by a brief but thorough walkthrough of the main app features. There are also a lot of supplementary materials to refer back to as you work in the program whenever you have questions.

All kinds of tools: No matter what type of project you're working on, you'll find the tools you need in this app. There are pixel-level editing tools, including Dodge and Burn options to selectively adjust lighting and color in specific areas of the image. You can also remove blemishes, apply filters and brush-on effects, and add text, borders, watermarks, vignettes, and other special effects. And when you're done, you can publish your finished pieces to PDF, PPT, and HTML.

Social engagement: One option, when you've added the final touches to your images, is to upload them to the ACDSee website. You can keep your photos private on here if you choose, but you can also share some with other users. And you can browse their photos and leave comments as well.

Cons

Freezing and crashing issues: We did encounter some issues with freezing and crashing while we were testing the app. In all cases, we could open the program and begin again, but this could get frustrating if it was a regular occurrence.

Bottom Line

ACDSee Pro 8 offers all kinds of options for managing and editing your photos. While you may never need all of the features included in this package, it's good to know you'll never want for anything. The app is free to try for 15 days, and the full purchase price is $199.99.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of ACDSee Pro 8.0.0.263.

"Good and mature"

June 26, 2015  |  By Alex Corso

 |  Version: ACDSee Pro 8 8.1.0.270

Pros

All in all, it's a powerful and mature tool with nearly all you need to edit photos.
Set of tools and adjustments is perfect.
RAW conversion is great.
Cataloging is good.
Quite simple to use.

Cons

The main problem is that it's unstable. Crushes too often. This needs to be improved as soon as possible.
Batch processing is poor.
Pricing is a bit high.

Summary

I would recommend it to advanced photographers - the product has everything they would need.
The only misleading thing about the product - it pretends a professional tool, but it's not.

"If you are a true professional dont waste your time"

July 14, 2014  |  By frankb3ll

 |  Version: ACDSee Pro 7 7.1.164.0

Pros

great for quickly viewing raw files, assuming you are not a professional shooter

Cons

This is a great program and i have been a loyal paid user for many years. It's lousy when a new Nikon pro camera comes out and you have to wait 3+ months for raw support to be added. It happened with the D3, D3S, D4 & now d4S. The camera came out march 2014 and i still cant view raw files. If you are a nikon pro shooter i recommend you choose a different program

Summary

They call the program pro, but it is far from professional, i have emailed digital river countless times, and they can give me no time frame, no info, and they say they are waiting for additional requests. It's been 3 or 4 emails, and 4 months, and nothing. Adobe adds new cameras to their raw plugin and Lightroom, within a week or less.

"Great workflow design."

April 10, 2014  |  By hobartquitman

 |  Version: ACDSee Pro 7 7.1.164.0

Pros

With ACDSee Pro 5 I can completely process a Digital Picture into a Publishing Quality Masterwork within minutes. ACDSee Pro 5 is much more intuitive than any other Photo Processing Software that I have tried

Cons

The "Sharpening" and "Shadow" adjustments are exceptional too.

Summary

Features like the "Light EQ" and now the "Color EQ" in ACDSee Pro 5, make enhancing Digital Photos so easy, intuitive, and fun.

"OK but better programs out there"

May 10, 2013  |  By Wings92126

 |  Version: ACDSee Pro 6 6.0.169

Pros

Quick workflow.
Many functions.
Much smaller file size than Lightroom 4.
Great to preview photos.

Cons

The little batch processing functions are a buggy nightmare.
No before/after functionality makes it easy to mess up badly.
Can't back out of many functions. If you mess up, too bad.

Summary

Not yet ready for prime time. I can't believe pros actually use this. If it were free, I'd probably keep it to preview pictures.

"Some faster on 64 bit system"

March 23, 2013  |  By anyport

 |  Version: ACDSee Pro 6 6.0.169

Pros

Speed has increased

Cons

None discovered so far

Summary

I haven't used this enough to find of there are any lurking bugs, but I have noticed an increase in speed with the 64 bit install. I mainly bought because of their $35 promo price. I'm not sure the increased functions from ACDSee 15 are very significant, but I haven't tried it on raw files yet.
