ACDSee Photo Manager 12 Released

"A new decade brings new and powerful features to ACDSee Photo Manager 12, the latest version of ACD Systems International Inc.'s easy-to-use photo software designed for people who need speed and flexibility when managing their photos and creative projects. ACDSee Photo Manager 12 helps users quickly and affordably stay organized and share their growing number of digital images and priceless memories. In this new version, photos and personalized artwork can easily be stored online and turned into posts on the leading social media network, Facebook."

ACDSee, my all-time favourite image management tool, has been updated to version 12. In terms of big changes, there's a 2 GB storage account that users receive access to; it allows them to share photos, give others access to original-resolution images, etc. There's an improved user interface - that's always been a bit of a weakness with the program - and the ability to resize and transfer images via FTP. I have to admit, nothing on that list really jumps out at me as being "Wow, I've got to have that!". Things that would excite me in a future version of ACDSee are anything that would save me time or save me from having to use other applications. Read more...

ACDSee Pro 3 Released: More Speed, Better Workflow

"ACD Systems International Inc. today unveiled ACDSeeTM Pro 3, a new version of its leading digital image management software that retains the same fast and flexible features photographers rely upon and incorporates an enhanced user experience that delivers professional level workflow tools at a tremendous value. ACDSee Pro 3 builds on its reputation as a leading viewer, browser and organizer with new advanced speed capabilities in the editing and online stages. For example, the program's unique process mode integrates two highly prized features - nondestructive image editing and precise pixel-level editing - into one seamless application."

I've been a long-time fan of ACDSee, in all its variations, and it's always one of the first five applications I install on any new computer I'm using. It's really fast, really stable, really useful software. Version 3 of their Pro line brings with it some user-interface changes, and a bunch of improvements when it comes to raw photo processing. I'm a big fan of Adobe Lightroom, but I'll have to take ACDSee Pro 3 for a spin with some raw photos and see how it does. About once a year I email the nice people at ACD Systems and make some feature requests...I'll have to see if any of them made it into this product. Probably not, but a guy can dream, right?
