ACDSee Pro helps you organize and keep track of all of the photographs and other images you have on your PC.
ACDSee Pro includes a useful set of tools that allow you to classify images according to self-created categories, ratings and "auto categories" that are based on the image's EXIF data. A nice search tool is also included - simply enter the first few letters of the file's name and ACDSee Pro will find it in seconds. This is quite a useful feature, as is the ACDSee Pro Help system, which seems fairly complete.
Among some of ACDSee Pro's strong points are the ability to perform batch operations and an interesting develop option that allows you to safely tweak your photos' specifications. ACDSee Pro is also configured to make the most of internet functionality, with good email and online sharing options, including the ability to upload directly to Flickr.
The developers of ACDSee Pro have vastly improved the installation process in this newest version. Unfortunately, you still have to enter your email address to receive an unlock access code to the trial version, which might annoy some users. The interface is a bit cluttered too, and can be confusing when you first get started. The interface includes directory tree structure on the left, the selected folder's contents in the central pane and a handy options menu on the right to categorize, tag and rate your pictures.
ACDSee Pro may appear a bit overwhelming at first, but it is actually a very comprehensive photo management option.
