Thanks ACDSee for taking a product that made its bones on the Mac and turning it into Windows-only! I wouldn't buy your products even if I wasn't using Aperture.

Even more dissappointing is the fact that still no support is available for Fuji X-Pro1 and X-E1 cameras. Now that's what you call "pro"support" :(

Any particular reason that DPReview notes the updated raw capacity to the not very good ADSee raw extractor, but skips noting the recent update to Aftershot? Aftershot is much better raw extraction software than ADSee. (No Aftershot is not up to the level of ACR, C1, DXO or PhotoNinja, but why ignore the recent update to Aftershot? And I’d bet that with some work Aftershot could play with the really serious raw extractors, unlike ADSee.)

DPReview has always seemed to depend on the manufacturers to push news and updates to them. It is why you don't see, for example, routine update information for Iridient (Raw) Converter or other niche products as they don't have dedicated marketing folks pushing announcements out to every web outlet.

pix,

Okay, except I don't understand why DPReview doesn't seek out some of this information. And no one treats ADSee as serious raw extraction software.

Now, Iridient may indeed be good raw extraction software, but I can't readily test it, because it's Mac only. While Aftershot runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. (So in the specific case of Iridient, there's a reason that it may not attract much notice.)

Have they added color management yet. It's useless for serious photo editing without it?

Problem with ACDSee is that it doesn't get along well with Firefox. Installing updates is a nightmare for those of us who don't use Explorer.

And if you're running a Windows system you have IE installed on it and can't uninstall IE, so wouldn't opening IE and doing the updates work for you?

(Or in the extreme temporarily set IE as the default web browser, run the updates, then relaunch Firefox, and Firefox will automatically prompt you to reset Firefox as the system web browser. It's not like you need to check for updates to ADSee daily, or even every week.)

I like ACDsee Pro, but - compared to Lightroom, I really miss a lot of Shortcuts via context menue, they are not described, so you have to look for in Help Webpages. There programmers should better concentrate on such essential parts! Most used Shortcuts like copy and paste development settings, export and so on should be shown without searching hours! That alone slows my workflow down too much!
