"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?
