Acdsee ultimate 8 buch free download
There are more panes that can be opened including a map view, Shortcuts, Keywords, and Categories. Workspaces gives options for saving layouts of the columns, panes, and tabs mentioned above. If you want the interface to look a certain way for organizing photos vs. Import has options for getting photos or videos from an attached device, a scanner, a disk location, or a CD or DVD. Batch allows you to apply the same processing to a selection of images at the same time.
The Create tab gives options for creating a slideshow file, a PDF of selected images, a PowerPoint file, and an ACDSee Showroom, which is a way to view a slideshow on your computer in a floating window. Slideshow creates a fullscreen slideshow with the selected images or videos with configurable options for length of time a photo is shown, transition, background color, looping mode, etc.
Editors allows you to specify another application for editing photos if you prefer to edit RAW files in Lightroom for instance. If you always do the same processing to a certain type of image this can be a real time saver vs. To the right of the main toolbar, with larger text and icons, are various mode buttons — Manage, Media, View, Develop, Edit, People, , Dashboard, and Message Center. Manage is the mode for browsing and managing all your media assets. This is the main view that launches when ACDSee os opened.
In Manage mode you can see your folder and file structure to find all the images on your hard drives or attached devices, use the tools mentioned above, and do other functions related to managing your Ultimate database. Media mode takes away most of the toolbars and panes from Manage mode and allows you to see only the folders that have been cataloged in the database, showing you the images you want to see without all the clutter of the rest of the application.
View mode gives an up-close view of a selected image, with the option of moving through several images that were selected before switching to view mode. Develop mode is where you make adjustments to images such as white balance, Light EQ and Color EQ, add effects, add vignettes, correct the geometry of an image, and use repair tools such as heal, clone, and red eye reduction.
There is an extensive undo history which allows you to go back to a previous step or all the way to the beginning of the developing process. You can also save a snapshot if you get to a spot you want to return to after experimenting further. This mode reminds me a lot of Photoshop because of the layers panel and the way the tools are presented. The interface has two main tabs, Named and Unnamed.
When you first open People the Named section is blank. Double clicking an image in Unnamed view opens up a panel at the bottom that shows what it thinks are the same person.
It’s light eq is good but you need to be very gentle with the sliders, same with the highlights sliders, which can cause a red hue if pushed. The auto mode in eq is terrible, at least auto in Lightroom usually gives a great starting point.
However, I would say if you weren’t spoiled by the noise reduction in other software and take a bit of time with Acdsee it is actually great value, it generally drops in price after a few months of release. If the new version has better noise reduction it’s definitely a winner.
Haven’t tried it as yet! Decent image quality. I have the same experience as him re lens correction and IQ. You should also try Capture one, it’s a really nice editor, but I cancelled my subscription there because they are even more expensive than adobe and then adobe still offer cloud integration and lightroom on iPad, something C1 can not compete with.
Look at any of my photos in the gallery. I may not be a great photographer, but there are no fails based on software choice.
It’s not about how my fotos will become better. It’s a work flow that I prefer. I am not going to print or sell but I want a fast work flow that allows easy editing and today LR does that very well for me. But cost wise I don’t have to spend this much on an editor and hence thinking if acdsee or dxo makes more sense. With a couple of friends on same boat getting a 89 dollar license for a year may be much cheaper to use in 5 systems.
For several years it was my go to program taking over Adobe. It was even more intuitive with superior overall results and FAR better noise reduction. Flawless lens corrections which ACDsee was not. Oh well time marches on. The one thing I really like in ACDSee’s Lens correction capabilities is the manual override ability on geometric corrections. Every once in a while, auto corrections DON’T work, or rather, they work, but just don’t render the most visually pleasing correction possible.
ACDSee allows the user to override the auto correction with manual controls using the auto correction as the starting point. It uses the LensFun database for correction information. Incomparably better value than the monthly fee model, which as an amateur, I do not need, nor have the money for well I do but I don’t feel it is worth it. The noise reduction comparison against DxO is particularly impressive.
It feels like the equivalent of 10 years of sensor image quality evolution. Can someone confirm if there is “phone home” software running in the background? I think I ran across this while doing research.
Yes, it does. What software doesn’t “phone home” anymore? Subscription services practically require it. Does ACDSee have a history panel now?
You wrote: “There are also some notable tweaks to the user interface and tools on offer. Several years ago I bought version 9 and it didn’t have a history panel. I contacted ACDSee and they told me they disliked history panels such as in Lightroom and other programs and would never add one.
Do they have it now? Light EQ – divides the image in up to 3 – 9 different tonal ranges, or zones, and allows the user to adjust tonality of each range separately.
This allows the user to display all or the DR their camera captures. Pixel Targeting – allows the user to interactively create a mask by sliding color and tonality sliders while a tiny mask thumbnail changes as the sliders move. In , it is only in the Edit tab Ultimate version but exists in almost every editing tool. This allows the user create a mask for a specific editing tool for both really unique situations, and for detailed adjustements.
NR is it’s weakest feature, no question about it. As mentioned above, the very ABSURD omission of its best feature needs more than ‘no-mention’: LightEQ is the feature that kept me with this program during whatever frustrations it may have presented nothing’s perfect. One try of this feature and you’ll switch right there – the ability to enhance any photo into ‘WOW’ is actually worthy of the word “Amazing”.
Forget tone curves! Recent additions of layers in editing make it a no-brainer for the best value, and overall best photo-editing program Oh, and it doesn’t try to import your entire library into itself. Like any other program, it just reads the files off the drive. I’ve used ACDsee for 15 years It only imports image metadata which is a bit cumbersome, because you have to initiate it manually after adding just 1 pic to a folder. Maybe the other Lightroom the cloud-based does “try to import your entire library into itself”.
Don’t know. I never understood that program the supposed advantage, the way it works from a consumer’s pov. I tried ACDsee 3 years ago, and found a hidden sub folder “[Developed]” created under any folder where you Develop an image.
These were up to 18MB. ACDSee support said that these are preview files to “save you waiting” when you next open the photo for developing. In comparison LR creates thumbnail previews less than 0. I found many of the LR preview sub folders to be empty when I checked. There is a further preview file created, stored with the catalog and used by the Manage module so that the thumbnail views represent the edited photo.
If you use the Edit module then a further hidden sub folder is created; “Originals” and a copy of your photo prior to editing is placed in here. So, beware of ballooning storage requirements. Well other DAMs create big “cache” folders too. But it’s certainly good to be aware of them. This was a big show-stopper for me, coming from LR subscriptions, bugs, slow and C1 bugs as hell, everywhere and always, support not reacting ; “develop” is not just a “preview” folder!!!
I hate not being able to change where it creates these folders, as it messes with my image source at NAS, but I swallowed this once and never looked back. The NR “limitations” are just a theoretical test on paper: I have never issues in practical usage with it, does a decent job.
You could then uninstall LR and later edit more with other Adobe software or Adobe compatibles, i believe some competitors are compatible, up to a point.
I guess every aspiring software review now is mandated to begin with “and there’s no subscription. Those people who do not like subscriptions are in denial or like to focus on petty items. The should check what their “subscriptions” are for their utility bills, insurance and medical drugs. Software for subscription only is a bunch of BS.
I threw Adobe out the window years ago and haven’t looked back. DXO spanks them all. Well, eveyrbody thinks different; for me it’s quite an important point, as I still understand the ‘insurance and medical bills’ a bit different cashflow as for editing the images.
No thanks. AfterShot has needed a major rebuild for a long time. Glad to see it. I’m a fan of PaintShop Pro, and believe two programs need much better integration. One is tempted to just give up. How either Adobe or Acdsee can market pruducts with such bad noise reduction at all beats me. Check Photos support for your cameras though, you may be very surprised at how wide is their range and how good the software now is.
Otherwise all of them are a fail, because they never update the software to include new camera models and lenses! I’m with you. RAW support on these smaller products is abysmal. I understand the challenges but as a consumer it is a non-starter. At least Capture One has been working on improving this recently.
If only Apple could release an Aperture-like advanced editing module for Photos, I would be satisfied. The speed, reliability and industry support in Photos puts professional products to shame, but the tools are just not there. Your post mentions two different issues: Camera software compatibility and noise reduction quality. DPR’s conclusion is that it is good software for amateurs and enthusiasts. As an amateur that uses the version I agree.
If I was a pro and making money, I would use Capture One or something else more versatile. At least about the Fujifilm files they are upfront. Adobe’s USM mask minimum of 0. I gave up on Capture 1 years ago. I had it, used it, liked it.
Except for one nasty little niggle. It deletes all your imported files. All I did was uninstall a trial of Capture 1 years ago, and that IS what happened. Those photographs no longer exist, as in those days HDDs were so expensive I did not make backups. A lot of world-class original artworks destroyed, not funny.
It made my choice a lot easy on weeding out the apps I want to keep. DXO won’t be one of them I keep. I just don’t want a subscription based app.
You’d think Adobe would keep Elements current too? One thing to consider is that Acdsee stores keywords and categories in custom XMP tags, this means no other software will see them.
You can export to iptc tags but you will loose hierarchy and in case you will decide to switch to another program you will have to tag all your photos again. What you don’t understand, is that ACDSee has a unique keywording structure that reduces the need for hierarchy in keywording.
There are Categories and Keywords, which are really two iterations of the same thing. By intelligently splitting up your hierarchy into categories and key words, you can minimize the need for keyword hierarchies. It you have a hierarchy that uses “Festivals State fair” for example, You could put Festivals in the Category file and State fair in the Keyword file. By logically separating them, and linking them to State fair photos we can create fairly complex hierarchical searches.
I could also create the keyword ‘flowers’ and do a search on ‘Festivals’ and ‘flowers’ without traversing every hierarchy that starts with “Festivals”. This is a major time saver on keyword searches in a big database. Yes, it is less portable to other systems keywording tools. My understanding is but sorry sorry if i’m wrong : – Plain IPTC doesn’t support hierarchies – Hierarchies are always a per-software solution.
About storing keywords – in strictly IPTC-conforming ways for JPG and DNG, inside the file or – after the software’s own whims external database , there’s pros and cons for both i guess. I prefer full IPTC conformity right away and would set LR to do so automatically, even if it causes delays when keywording big numbers of photos in 1 go and esp with automatic online backup and slow bandwidth.
The same also applies to face annotations. This was at least the case when I checked for Lightroom Alternatives in I agree, Acdsee uses its own namespace for tags instead of using the equivalent tags in standard XMP namespaces this defeats one of the most valuable features of metadata: interoperability Luckily DXO Photolab copies all XMP tags to exported photos, including AcdSee private tags.
Gianpaolo – you are correct in that this is stored in the database records. One useful file management feature I do not see mentioned and that I have never seen in any other product attracted me to ACDSee.
This is the option in the file import utility to split raw files into a separate folder from the JPEG files — for me, this means if I shoot with both formats, I get JPEGs in a date-coded folder and the corresponding raw files identically named in a “raw” subfolder in case I need them, much like the sleeve of negatives in the front of my prints from the lab in the film days.
I just subscribed to LR and I’m learning how to use it. Not if you have a large database. Hierarchical databases are inherently faster than relational databases. Glen, hierarchical databases are a relic of the past. Both relational and no-SQL databases far surpass these today by a large margin, both in speed and where applicable in usability.
I KNOW relational, object, and hierarchical databases. That is, a whole bunch of computers strung together by an OS that can intelligently split up an SQL query into separate sub-queries.
The typical personal computer simply cannot do that sort of thing. Relational databases are great for developers and data analysts though, Programs are easy to modify to meet changing needs. But for the preprogrammed type of queries that DAMS do, hierarchical databases remain the fastest and most responsive. Noobie question, but which of these discussed programs are using hierarchical vs those using relational DBMSs?
Curtis Philips – Lightroom uses a relational database. There may be a few others, but not many. Don’t misunderstand me, please! A relational database system works well for small to medium sized set of records, but as the number of records increases, the number of computing resources your computer requires for reasonable response time. Hierarchical delays reaching that bottleneck significantly. Glen Stop spreading FUD.
