Review of ACDSee Pro 5 here on the imaging review sitehttp://www.imaging-r...dsee-pro-5/index.htm
It's mainly a review of the new non-destructive editing of images - they give a very positive review, apart from interface annoyances.
Management gets very little attention.
They give the impression that it could be a good replacement for Lightroom - for those that cant, or dont want to, afford Lightroom.
some concluding remarks
The interface made using ACDSee Pro a less than pleasant experience but we enjoyed seeing the results of our efforts. So we have no little respect for what ACDSee has achieved with Pro. ... it knows how to save a difficult image.
... so much power packed into such an affordable package.
For some of us, ACDSee Pro may be the only option. It's nice to know it can keep up with anyone.
And for everybody else, well, don't look back, somebody may be gaining on you.
My queries are-
- has anyone here tried it?
- how did you get on?
- how good is the management/cataloging side of it?
It's on special offer till Sept 17th -for US IP's at any rate- US$59.99 - for me the special offer is "converted" to euros and adds up to over US$96:
[I really hate that BS - you click on a 59.99 offer and get that... It looks like, but isnt at all clear that that includes 15% VAT/tax - but that should only make it $69, *not* $96.]http://www.acdsee.com/en/special-offers
