  • Might have better luck here: ACDSee forums
  • This doesn't cover two? ACDSee number of users per license
  • Replied in No crap
    I must have been unclear because that was exactly the point I intended to make.
  • ACDSee STD (DAM-Lite, but database driven) is around $30 on sale (what I paid). Works for my needs, at least for that outlay. BTW, I tried AbeMeda and it definitely wasn't for me.
  • Replied in No crap
    AP is primarily a pixel editor that just happens to also do Raw conversion inputs, whereas PS depends on another utility (ACR). So, a more accurate comparison is probably: (DxO + AP + DAM) == (LR + ...
  • You can add a DAM today for as little as $30. Many people think it's not a bad idea to keep the DAM separate from the editors, anyway...
  • It seemed clear to me...you weren't the one that changed to Subject line to "crap"? Please take a look at the following and then it will be clear that "crap" is not really warranted. Raw converters ...
  • > Things may have improved since ... Shadow processing - ACR vs Affinity - five months ago
  • The definition of DAM has different meanings to different people. How do those companies view their multi-K software pkgs compared to $119? apples-apples? Note: ACDSee is regularly on sale while ...
  • Just adding the asterisk that, in terms of DAM only,  iMatch is 4X more in cost than ACDSee (STD) though iMatch is arguably on a higher plane in terms of DAM functionality.   Personally, I much ...
  • A little strong as results and defects are two different things.

    The trial versions don't work for you?

    Criticizing AP for not doing parametric (raw) editing is no more relevant than criticizing Photoshop for the same perceived lack of functionality. Photoshop needs companion apps for this capability ...
  • Funny, ihorv0 had the exact same response. I license at least five other editors that take Raw as inputs and do not do parametric saves. Since AP is primarily a pixel-based editor it appears this ...

    Yes, we know that.  However, if one cannot get WB within the correct ball-park the first time maybe one needs to up their PP skills. You do this frequently do you?
  • Replied in Affinity
    In that case, you needn't concern yourself with AP and the rest of us will carry on somehow.
  • True, but the AP bashers don't seem to follow the same logic when commenting on AP.
  • Replied in Affinity
    They mean that once your Raw editing session is complete and you "Apply" it then the result is rendered into a pixel-based image and your Save options going forward are Tiff, Jpeg, etc. (Tiff is a ...
  • a) Not true...several other raw converters don't save Raw edits. b) It's not a big deal; just save in Tiff or use another Raw converter like free DxO or perhaps ACR...that's what Photoshop does. c) ...
