I ended my Adobe subscription on Christmas day and bought ACDsee ultimate pack, includes a few different products and video editing software. My thinking was I paid 126 euro or 150 dollars, so if I don't get on with it I'll hook up with Adobe again in ten months, as it's a little over 12 euro a month here so I some way I won't really lose money. I must say I am impressed (I uninstalled lightroom and Photoshop straight away so I'd have to use the new stuff and get somewhat familiar). There are some things I prefer and obviously some things I don't. I'd guess that if one started with ACDsee rather than Adobe they'd probably never look back. Having been used to and really thinking Lightroom is fantastic, it's hard to unreservedly say go ACDsee, but I'd definitely recommend anyone thinking of alternatives or indeed splashing for a first paid software to give this one at least a 30 day trial. Had anyone else here tried it? What do you think of it?
