Just saw an ad for this product and it looks pretty nice. Anyone use it?

I use it; although, not for editing. Just for sending out batch email images. It is also a great program to view RAW files without opening up Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Bridge or Lightroom. The EXIF info from this program is pretty good and has a TON of info for viewing.

I use to edit a lot with the previous versions, but the Adobe RAW does a heck of a job on RAW or JPEG images. Also this program builds a huge database for your images...taking up a lot of space. 2nd reason why I use it sparingly.

Hope this sheds some light...nice image app to have though when you really don't want a program hogging up resources.

Just tried the demo. Nice photo orgainization and layout, but the RAW developer seems to not give me as good of color and sharpness as DPP.

I don't use Pro but I do have their Photo Manager. It has the best duplicate finder that I have ever seen. It not only finds duplicate photos but also documents, mp3s, spreadsheets, and about every other file type you can think of. Unlike other duplicate finders that just compare file names, ACDSee looks at the actual file.

Not a substitute for Photoshop but a great complimentary program.

I think you need to look again... They have made some major improvements in 3.0. The non-destructive features are pretty cool.

I'm a long time user of PS, but this new ADCsee Pro 3.0 version has me using it more than PS these days

I use it since they added support the 7D raw images (just a few weeks ago).
It can browse raw images very quickly (much quicker than the software that is supplied with the camera). I have not invested in Photoshop yet (I am just a hobbyist on a tight budget) but I have been pretty impressed with the features it has to adjust color and intensity of the image. Since getting ACDSee Pro 3, I have not gone back into DPP or used Zoom Browser, though I suspect there will be times I go back into DPP.

If you have ever shot JPG and Raw just because browsing raw images is so slow, this might be a good investment for you.

Does it have localized editing? Dodge brush for example?

You can download a free demo, so I would suggest doing that if you are interested. I didn't end up liking the interface, but I think it did have localized editing.

I have just started using it.. but the dodge feature is pretty weak. You can make a selection (magic wand, circle, etc.) and dodge that. I still have a much older version of ACDSee that does dodging and burning much better.

It does allow you to clone pretty well. I just posted a pic tonight were I did a quick clone, using ACDSee Pro 3.0, to get rid of 2 kids in the background. The large picture is an edited version of the last in the series before it. This was a very quick edit just for fun.

BTW.. the series was made using a contact sheet feature in ACDSee.

it's a great little program, i use it for quick edits,

I like it for sorting and rating my photos when I do a photoshoot, that's very useful (i'm sure the other programs do it also)
