ACDSystems Releases ACDSee Pro 4

"Take your digital photos to the highest standard. ACDSee Pro 4 will help get you there fast, with all the tools you need for everything you shoot. Manage, view, process and publish your images in one full-featured application. You'll enjoy organized files, achieve stunning visual results, and free up more time to spend behind the camera."

I've been a huge fan of ACDSee for years - I've used every version of their product since the mid '90s - but I have to admit I'm not terribly enthused by this upgrade in their Pro line. The cost of the upgrade for owners of Pro 3 is high; $167.99 for the upgrade (compared to $99 for the Lightroom upgrade for example). When I look at the list of what's new, I don't see many things that make me say "Oh yeah, I've been waiting for that!". Pro 4 offers a better metadata panel, metadata presets, a location-based map view, improved raw rendering and vignette correction, chromatic aberration fixes...and that's about it. There's mention of an HDR feature on the product home page - and I don't think that's in Pro 3 - but the What's New page doesn't mention the HDR feature as being new...so who knows? Read more...

piRAWnha Processes RAW Images on iPad; Fills Your Pun Quota for the Next Decade

"piRAWnha is the first RAW image developer for the iPad. In piRAWnha, the raw data can be edited and once the settings have been optimized, a high‐quality JPEG image file can be exported to the Photo Library. Currently, piRAWnha supports raw images transferred to the iPad with the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit. piRAWnha works with all raw files supported by Apple."

The iPad's IPS screen makes it a natural fit in the photographer's bag. Upon the iPad's announcement most photographers saw its potential as a portable electronic portfolio. Others have since used it for a second monitor for photo editing on the notebook while out in the field. Now there is an app to process raw images on the iPad. Besides the awful pun, I am just curious if anyone would really want to use the iPad to process anywhere from 12 megapixel to 24 megapixel raw images.

ACDSee Pro 4 Beta Open to the Public

"We invite you to participate in the ACDSee Pro 4 public Beta program and have your say in the development of the next version of ACDSee Pro, the software application that helps professional and advanced amateur photographers accelerate their workflow from beginning to end. Preview Pro 4's improved metadata management, enhanced processing technology that will bring out the best in your RAW and other image files, and the new Map feature that allows you to add location information to photos, and view photos by location."

Like beta testing? Have a bunch of photos you'd like to work with? Then the ACDSee Pro 4 beta might be just the ticket. They're adding some interesting new features, including mapping, enhanced metadata management, and better raw processing. I see ACDSee Pro constantly, but the features I'd like to see added are, I guess, just too "quirky" to ever make it into the product. One example: quite often, the last photo at an event or location that I take is really what I want to be the first of a set. The restaurant sign, the sign for the park I just walked through, etc. I seem to miss those things on the way in to a place, and all I want is a one-click way - or even a drag and drop method - to change all EXIF/file time stamps at once to be just prior to the first photo I took. Think of it as a time machine for photos. I can do this now of course, but it requires changing, at minimum, three EXIF fields. I'd find a feature like that to be quite useful - would you?
