Those of you who use ACD Pro2 will probably be aware that there is now a free upgrade available to ACD Pro2.5

I posted this just in case anyone has missed it

Thanks for that - I hadn't come across it yet.

Have you tried it Adrian? It's got a couple of 'quirks' which I'm finding irritating at the moment - one is you can't define a default Editor so you have to click on the drop-down list and select it and as for that pop up when closing that wants to check all files for metadata changes! If you find a way of turning that off I might stick with it.

Thinking of going back to v2 frankly. I certainly don't use any of the manipulation capability but I do like the management side of it.

Have upgraded - but it has problems. That embed metadata request can be turned off once you let it run, and then it gves the option to 'not ask anymore'. A big problem is that if you do let it try to embed the metadata, quite a few have found it crash the programme when it gets to a certain file. (for me it was after about 10,000 files with about 17,000 to go!)
See ACDSee user support forum for this and other aggro!
Otherwise just great

Hi Mike..as Andy states above I let it run and then chose the option not to ask

As for the editor open tools,then editor then configure editor...is that what you are looking for?

Will try that this evening adrian - as for the other thing, in version 2 you could set up a default action on the 'Edit' button so having selected the image required, you just hit the button.

With 2.5 you now have to click on the fiddly litte arrow to the right of the 'Edit' button and select whichever prog you want from those you have loaded. Not good when running a 1680x1050 screen Sad

just a thought Mike, but doesn't right clicking on the image bring up the menu you want?

Mike it works exactly the same as in Ver2 you just configure the default editor to be used. On the drop down menu in Edit image button select configure editor then highlight the editor you want by clicking on it then click on the set as default button..easy.

By the way you can also just drag and drop images from ACDsee onto any any imaging icon on your desktop and the image will open up in it. Wink

Love the new image download feature
Might take a tad longer for them to download but they are then ready to browse
