MrTed: Is ACDSee Pro 6 faster than Photo Mechanic in terms of initially launching the application, and then to cull a large number or RAW images?
ACDSee 5 Pro and prior versions have been slow to start for me. I'm running Windows 7, 64-bit with 8 GB RAM.
Any one feel ACDSee Pro 6 is faster than Pro 5 from an image browser perspective?
It is DEFINITELY noticeably faster than ACDsee Pro 5. I edit a couple of thousand images each week and have been using 4 and 5 for my workflow. On two different computers, both running Vista 64bit, I have run some processing tests. Much faster, and manages memory and processor load much better. Loads large directories faster, and I'm loading a 1300 image folder of 21mp raw files. Its a must have upgrade if you have a 64bit OS. It has even made my minimal laptop noticeably faster handling files (2ghz duo core, 4gb ram, Vista 64).
