Editors' review

With its professionally designed and visually appealing interface, ACDSee Pro makes a good first impression. While novice users might be overwhelmed initially, the tools to organize and view images proved easy to use.

This program's sleek interface looks sharp and well-designed. Four main areas dominate the screen. The middle section, and largest, is for thumbnails of your photographs and allows you to view an entire folder's worth of shots at once. The lower left side gives a larger preview of any thumbnail you click on, as well as a small graph of its color composition. Above this box is another dedicated to navigating your computer's file trees to find the pictures you want to appear as thumbnails. Finally, the right side of the screen is dedicated to the program's options. Here you can choose to bundle, rank, and categorize your pictures.

Although the interface was beautifully designed, it was a bit overwhelming at first. It takes little time to get acclimated, though, and we found it easy to add images and create categories to organize them. Although ACDSee Pro doesn't have the full range of editing tools found in full image-editing programs, it does allow you to resize shots, batch rename, convert to PDF, and create DVDs. Less experienced users might need to refer to the Help file the first time around, but each option proved fairly easy to understand and use.

If you've already got a full image-editing program, but aren't happy with its organizational options, ACDSee Pro works well. Its cost will deter the casual photographer, but serious enthusiasts with large collections will appreciate what this tool has to offer.

    "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.
