Opens JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF, ICO, PIFF and numerous formats, edits the images by rotating, resizing, cropping or adding effects to them, organizes your photo collection and shares your pictures.

ACDSee is intended to manage, edit and share photographs. Its interface is, in many respects, similar to those of other similar products; so, if you have previous experience in using any of them, it’s highly improbable you will have any difficulty to use ACDSee. The working area is divided into three sections: a left panel where you can browse folders, a right panel with the properties, and the obvious viewing area in the middle. The tabs at the top allow for switching between working modes, which are Manage, Photos, View, Edit and 365(photo upload to the Cloud).

It’s practically impossible to describe all the features available from ACDSee in such a short review. Instead, I’ll try to highlight those I found particularly useful or interesting. First, the program allows you to build a catalog. This ensures the so-called “non-destructive editing”, which means that you can make any changes without affecting the original files. Second, the program is distinguished by the speed at which you can browse through the photographs in the collection. Third, it comes with very accurate light equalizing tools, which are based on dragging sliders for the desired effects. Fourth, it supports some photo retouching tools that correct skin defects. Finally, to complete the list, it also has most standard tools, including red eye reduction, crop, sharpen and blur. more

I have owned many versions of ACDSee beginning in the late 1990's, and am always unhappy with it. While it has some excellent features and works quickly when it works, my experience has been that it's the least stable commercial application I own. I have come to expect a crash at least every other time I use it, and in some cases, it crashes three or four times in a few hours. This is working in collections of about 75K images and a few thousand videos, on local drives in very high end systems. This has been happening over YEARS of ownership through different versions, (currently ACDSee Pro10) on different systems and with different windows O/S versions. To its credit it fails gracefully, and a restart is usually all that's required, but still a pain. My other issue is ACDSee is one of those companies that constantly releases small incremental changes (e.g. moveable menus), but treats them as major releases requiring a substantial paid upgrade. They basically want you on an annual subscription model constantly feeding in $. If I had it to do over again, I don't think its worth the time and money.

It has powerful photo editing tools and is easy to use without having to call up Photoshop and a lot of other nice features.
