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.

""Brilliant" I would'nt use anything else,"

January 23, 2011  |  By colin2720

 |  Version: ACDSee Pro 3.0 build 475

Pros

Very easy to use , with lots of bells and whistles built in,
It will do just about anything the average photographer will need, and looks good too.

Cons

Unless I am missing a trick it's a long way round to get to the editing arena, but I can live with that as it could be a safety net.

"Quite good."

January 18, 2011  |  By KevinD54

 |  Version: ACDSee Pro 3.0 build 475

Pros

Opening images is really fast.

Cons

Crashed several times on my Vista laptop.

Summary

The software is good but the interface is quite messy. I bought it last year and it worked great on my XP PC but not on my Vista laptop. It crashed several times and i also lost lots of data. I've stopped using it. But i found a great and free alternative - Kestrel GX.

Overall ACDSee is a good software when it works. The developers should really work on the interface to make it more user friendly.

"Streamlined Workflow"

June 05, 2010  |  By myfotoguy

 |  Version: ACDSee Pro 3.0 build 475

Pros

Value!, features are fantastic (advanced color and the lighting tools are amazing), fast, uses file system (no importing and exporting to manage database, and ready to share with other programs. Non-destructive RAW and Jpeg editing.

Cons

Not compatible with photoshop plug-ins (not a big deal, really).

Summary

My photography workflow is smooth and fast with this software. I tag, organize and make many basic (and advanced) edits with ease, and get quality results.
