Outstanding Image Software

I donít get excited about software very often but I just got an outstanding image viewing and organizing program for $50.00 bucks. If you deal with large numbers of digital images this is the best workflow tool I know of. A typical work flow for me means I may shoot 500 images in a day, pull off 50 of them as fast as I can to hand off, then edit, organize, rename, reduce copies for web res, and burn to disk later. What a time consuming hassle. This program does it all and makes it easy.

The codec is excellent, even thumbnails look good.
Lots of viewing options.
Great tools, like batch rename, I gave a folder with 700 files in it a three letter event code and it automatically added a chronological number after that to every image (I shoot with two bodies so that fixes a lot for me).
It is fast, handles tons of images without a problem.
Is super easy to use
Does many other things

It is called ACDsee and you can download a trial version here www.acdsystems.com

Apparently it is very popular in Europe, and lots of guys at my media center use it. The bottom line is that my job was just made easier by a consumer application. I bought the power pack with an editing program, and printing program just for the heck of it but they are definitely consumer apps. It is the ACDsee program I like.

I've got v3.0 of ACDsee and it's is a great time saver. It views all formats including PSD something that Windows can't do. I'd totally recommend it to anyone using a digital camera or scanning film.

Their up to v6 now. The more I use it the more I love it. Sorting filters, contact sheets, and more exif info than stats at a ball game.

ACDSee seems to be in everybody's treasure chest. I'm personally
more fond of IrfanView though.

Been using ACDsee for year, it's great. Makes life easy if you are dealing with photos.

I'm afraid IrfanView is Windows only as well. Sorry.

A similar program for Mac's is iView MediaPro. If you have very large catalogs to build take a look at Portfolio by Extensis.
