Be honest to say, it's not my favourite.

First, I've used ACDSee Pro for years. Second, DxO Optics is my main processing program. Third, I don't like Lightroom though I have it and use it occasionally. ACDSee Pro is a great program. The best for browsing. Very good for processing though it lacks some of what DxO offers.

ACDsee Pro is $120. DxO is $170 to $299. Lightroom 3 is $285 at Amazon today.

ACDSee Pro is 61 MB. DxO is 105 MB. Lightroom is 162MB.

The only reason to use DxO over ACDSee Pro is that DxO automatically corrects for my specific camera and lens combination. I haven't used ACDSee beta 4 enough to see if it has added that feature but it used to require manual correction.

ACDSee pro is not bloated. It is a great piece of software. Always has been and still is. I process thousands of photos and use it regularly to catalogue, view and process raw files. I'd say you can't go wrong with this program.

At this price and this many years in development this software is just not anywhere near worth the price. I feel stupid because I keep renewing it thinking it's going to be better. I have been running the trial now on Windows 7 64-Bit and it literally takes about 30 seconds to open the application itself. The viewer is quick but this application is just absolutely silly in how slow it is to load.

Getting more and more bloated and lumbered by an indexing system you can't turn off, even if you try to disable it by excluding all your folders.

If you find it getting slower and slower - and you will - you have to delete the database, something you probably didn't want in the first place.

Searching is an absolute abortion. Try searching for all the images within nested folders, then moving and renaming them. You'll give up before you figure it out. Used to be simple.

They really have lost the plot with this once excellent program.

Yes, ACDSee is bloated now. But it's still very strong and useful. Unfortunately, it's too pricey. I think ACD Systems is on the way to stagnation. Anyway, I rated its product as high as possible.

I've been using this program off and on since 1995. I am simply FLOORED at how bloated it's become, and the price tag is ridiculous. Photoshop.

tbresson: Acdsee 10 opens image as fast as version 3, and I believe Acdsee pro 2.0 uses the same core as Acdsee 10 too.

BTW, who should people who wants a fast viewer rating the Pro version? It's not targetted to all the casual user who only wants a simple viewer anyway.

They need to make the indexing and more of the obscure plugins and features optional. The browser itself is the fastest and most full-featured on the planet, yet the rest of the bloat makes it seem slow.

I think that's the #1 complaint by users, it's too bloated! Look at all the comments, ACD, how long before you finally do something about it?

tbresson - I couldn't agree more whole heartly. Fast Stone is a better alternative but can be a resource hog if you open it with folders that contain large amounts of pictures.

After version 3, ACDSee only made this once great program worse. It's bloated, heavy on your PC and though it has many features, it's simply just too much if you just wanted to view some pictures.

Back in the days, ACDSee was the best mainly because it loaded your pictures really fast. But if you have to wait for the program to start and tons of interface options it's not worth it.

FastStone Imageviewer is really good replacement for people who use this, and it's free too.

Well i can't speak for Beta. But ACDSee is a great program. It's all i've used for years. I've tried others but ACD has what I want. I got ACDSee Pro 1 and it works flawless. So I don't know why it's crashing for some people and not for others. Yes it is heavy program but it does a heck of alot also. If you don't like it fine. But I do.

Acdsee, in my opinion has seen it's time and needs to retire. Acdsee has never been stable and seems to crash weekly. While it has some nice features like tif merge and built in picture editing, it also has a huge price tag. There are many free alternatives (some far superior)... Small footprint size and low resource usage are some critical things Acdsee never had.

My Alternitives:
- Picasa for photos and Online-Offline Albums.
- Faststone Image Viewer (Standard Graphic viewer/Editor)

Many are confused about ACDSee versions, so here is what I think is to be known about them:
After versions 1...7 and 8, Pro was released which was meant to be an application for professional use. ACD Systems has decided to build a less expensive version with less
capabilities but with more spectacular features and for a lower price for the general public and this was 9. Neither versions were Vista compliant so earlier this year an update became available for Vista. To fill the need for a more professional build, Pro 2 is to be released which is now available for public testing
