Lightroom is by all means a PRO tool. Happy?I had to wait for hours to go go through all my photos (several hundred thousand) and to make an unacceptably huge database file with all the unimportant (unimportant to me) info for all those images. This approach is similar to Aperture's as well as iPhoto's (which isn't a PRO tool, I'd call it jokeware).ACDSee on the other hand concentrates on those images I am interested in. This makes it faster and more simple to use - for me at least.Of all the programs I have tried ACDSee suits best my needs, and Lightroom is the PRO tool that keeps annoying me (me, me, not you, not you).I made my first statement in response to other claims that acdsee is useless and so on.I am aware of the color management issue and I'm not happy about it, but I'm not a professional, so I'm managing somehow.There are though other things in acdsee that are bothering me.Yet above all I find unacceptable that on OSX there is no good image browser.

Apologies accepted. I see, you now intend to even surpass me in politeness and choice of words!Yet you still sound like someone is trying to force you to switch to acdsee.I'm too curious how I came to my conclusion.It is a rather overwhelming argument you are using: so many are doing it - then it must be right!I never said that LR is a bad software. I said acdsee can do the category assigning job in a more straightforward way. And I'm not talking about acdsee for osx, that one is horrible, really uncomparable with the win version.So have you ever worked with acdsee on windows? Or would it have hurt your pride :)The image editing capabilities of LR are much better than those of acdsee, but that's not a problem if using parallely a good image editor.And I will try out LR one more time. I can do that. I'm not competing in the Pride UltimateFightingChampionship.

There are plenty of reasons for enthusiast photographers to consider this RAW-processing package, too though, including excellent organization tools, speedy performance, and a unique focus-peaking preview that helps you identify the sharpest shots in your batch of photos. Like Lightroom and DxO Optics Pro, it also offers an extensive selection of noise-reduction, lens-correction, color-correction, and custom-printing tools. If its relatively high cost gives you pause, you can always download a free trial version and see how you get on.

I have tried a good many photo editing programs over the years. Image editor pro from is a good software for creating graphics and editing photos. Overall this is powerful and affordable software that is designed to support anyone from a casual home user who wants to make their photos look really good, to the power users that want to make detailed adjustments and create graphics from scratch. Their direct link is

I'm considering to switch from Adobe CS5 to another package. Before I jump in the deep with one package I would like to know if it meets this two conditions:1. I don't want to have all my photo's (about 70.000) to be imported and cataloged in a program. As they are organized in folders I just want to use a filebrowser in stead (just like Bridge does).2. Using Bridge for a long time I've added plenty Keywords to my photo's and don't want to do that all over again. So the program should support this keywords.My question is, which photo organizer/editor (not Adobe) meets this requirements?Thanks in advance!

I'm an enthusiast from a photographic computer arts background and have used GIMP and Photoshop extensively - mainly GIMP as it is opensource. Some of the emerging photo editors can be great for achieving fast effects at a low budge as wellt. I came across one called Smart Photo Editor that I was able to use to apply effects added by other people to the package. Saved me a lot of time and with very good results so consider checking out these packages as well.

I've been using for years Picture Window Pro for advanced post processing that raw converters are not capable (yet). When launched it was the fastest photo editor out there and with the 64bit version it still is. One has to see how speedy transformations of 48bit of 2 GB images are and how low the memory print is (to the point threads about PS dedicated hardware always make me laugh). The dark room paradigm workflow - one image per phase - is also very intuitive and powerful. It still is the only photo editor I know of capable of transformations in color neutral HSL and HSV spaces. This gem really deserves more of the photo community mind share.

I downloaded your raw file and put it through Photo Ninja. Removing both the chroma and luma noise was a trivial matter for Noise Ninja. Did you use it at all? I would be happy to send you a screenshot showing the NN settings that I used, if you will PM me. Also, the EXIF indicates that the photo was taken at ISO 100. I am very surprised to find so much noise at such a low ISO.

Definitely a poor excuse for a photo editor. To see how bad it is you have to register and get a code to use it. It's basically a teaser so that they can send you a news letter to buy their other products.DON'T BOTHER WITH THIS PIECE OF JUNK.

Free version has no editor, no thumbnail preview, and if you left the Gama 1.2 checked, photos would look too light. Frankly I see no use for this. The FastStone image viewer has editing, thumbnail view, and all the goodies for free. Another program is XNview, which does it all. For photos and paint, the free PhotoFiltre is great. The best photo manipulation software is PhotoScape, and it is FREE. Love the PhotoScape more than say Picasa, which is pretty good as well.

by Mike Pasini (August 2012)Solve the puzzle of what to do all summer -- and get your photos noticed -- with a new online jigsaw app from Carolina Road Software. Read our review to see just how much fun we had (at our own expense).LensDoc Plug-InReviewbyStephanie Boozer and Mike Pasini (August 2001)Geometric distortion (barrel and pincushion distortion) is a perpetual problem in consumer-level digicam lenses. Barrel distortion (the edges of the image bulging outward) in wide angle shots is often particularly pronounced. There's now a great solution to this, in the form of a software package from Andromeda Software, called LensDoc. IR all-around writer-gal Stephanie Boozer and Newsletter Editor Mike Pasini put their heads together and came up with a great review of the product. Read the review for the details (or if you're not sure what this barrel distortion thing is all about - there's a great example there).Lightroom 4 BetaReviewbyMike Pasini (January 2012)In the middle of a dry December, we attended an hour briefing on Adobe Lightroom 4 with Product Manager Tom Hogarty. We've been following Lightroom's development since its inception. With each revision our wish list shrinks. This time we checked off video and soft proofing, to name the two biggest new features. See what else we checked off in our software preview.NoisewareReviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (March 2007)While our camera reviews often point out that a camera's high ISO images just don't hold together well enough to print, there is a solution. Photoshop-compatible plug-in Noiseware from Imagenomic uses artificial intelligence to analyze the noise in an image without requiring a profile for your camera. And the more you use it, the better it gets, learning from each image it processes. Over the past year, we've been using it to salvage high ISO images from a number of recent cameras and have, as part of the review, built a gallery of the most representative of them so you can see exactly how Noiseware performs. Read our review for the whole story.Optics Pro 7Reviewby Mike Pasini (November 2011)DxO has released Optics Pro v7 with some impressive improvements including faster processing speed, particularly for Raw images; image management features; simplified workflow; improved lens softness correction; and Improved saturated color protection. Along with those have come improved stability and more camera modules joining features we've long appreciated in Optics Pro, including its Raw converter, noise removal, single shot HDR exposure control, optical corrections, color control and the DxO FilmPack plug-in. Read the review for the full story.Optipix3 Photoshop Plug-insReviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (July 2004) They brought 16-bit channels to the ordinary digicam, then beat Adobe to 16-bit editing tools in Photoshop. Now Reindeer Graphics has released the third version of its little image engine that could with four exciting new tools. Harnessed in Photoshop actions they're one great way to run a railroad. Read our report.Perfect365Reviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (November 2011)Arcsoft has just released Perfect365, a new portrait retouching application that runs on Windows and iOS. While offering some standard tricks of the trade like face reshaping, teeth whitening, eye brightening and blemish removal, it goes a bit further. See how much further in our review.PhanfareReviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (March 2004)Phanfare, a new online photo sharing service, isn't free, but it doesn't need an Upload button. And that's priceless! Read our report.PholiumReviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (April 2012)If you've been holding your breath waiting for an app that does photo ebooks on the iPad, you can now exhale. 58 North has just released Pholium, with which you can create and publish your own photo ebooks. Read our review for the whole story.PhoozL IQReviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (March 2012)As if digital photography isn't perplexing enough, Harald Johnson has just released two versions of PhoozL IQ for iPad to complement the existing iPhone/iPod Touch versions. The larger screen is somewhat more embarrassing but the fun (and the education) makes up for it. Read our review for the whole story.PhotoRescue by DataRescueReviewbyMike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (September 2002)We've spent years perfecting our Disaster Simulator. While some people think it's just a wind-up alarm clock with glow-in-the-dark (radiating, that is) numerals, most realize it's not innocently ticking away. Disaster, we've found over the years, is just a matter of time. But while we were waiting (and the Disaster Simulator was ticking), DataRescue ( ) developed PhotoRescue with an impressive list of features.Portrait ProfessionalReviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (July 2007)Professional portrait photographers know flattery is good for business. And now Anthropics has automated that flattery with Portrait Professional, a Windows application that easily handles routine retouching like tooth and eye whitening but goes further to include head sculpting, too. That last bit of magic is feasible thanks to a clever and unique way of describing a head. But it also makes possible to distinguish facial features like skin defects from pores and small wrinkles from the larger ones that define character. And that's just the beginning of the story. Read our review for the scoop.QPictReviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (June 2000)This one is strictly for Macintosh users. If you're looking for a great catalog program, definitely take a look at Rune Lindman's QPict. From batch processing to scripting to indexing images, this program is definitely easy to use yet advanced enough to keep a " master" computer user interested. Check out our review.SilverFast AiReviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (November 2002)LaserSoft Imaging is a German firm whose CEO and president is Karl-Heniz Zahorsky. "The original motive for the 'invention' -- meaning the conception, development and additional development of SiverFast Ai -- was to be able to produce one's 'own' image successfully, without requiring extensive training in reproduction techniques," he said. Indeed, the product packs a lot of intelligence into itself. And while it is primarily a high-end tool equally at ease in either RGB or CMYK color modes, it does provide a sort of automatic mode for beginners called the ScanPilot. SilverFast 6, the Swiss Army knife of scanning software, impresses an old lithographer with how easy it makes it get great results -- even for novices.SnapseedReviewby Mike Pasini (December 2011)Fortunately some of our favorite desktop tools are migrating their way to iOS and Android devices. Other than Adobe, we were glad to see Nik Software bundle up its marvelous editing technology into a little app called Snapseed. We spent a few weeks working with Snapseed on an iPad 2 and, frankly, it's software we could live with. A long, long time. Read the review for the full story.Snapseed DesktopReviewby Mike Pasini (March 2012)Having found the interface of its dreams for all of its plug-in technology with Snapseed, Nik Software wisely didn't stop there. They brought the interface to the desktop -- both OS X and Windows -- and for just $19.99 through iTunes, the App Store or from Nik Software. Considering the plug-ins themselves run in the three figures, that represents quite a bargain. So we took it for a spin. Read our review for the details.SoundPix Plus 2.0 Reviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (February 2004)Tired of emailing pictures that require a thousand words of explanation? SoundPix Plus can send a picture with audio embedded in the Exif header! Read our review for the details.StickyAlbumsReviewby Mike Pasini (September 2012)There are two things we really like about StickyAlbums. First, it gets your images off your hard drive and onto your client's mobile devices where they can easily share them. Click an app icon and presto, you've got a slide show going. Second, StickyAlbums sets a new bar for customer service (not that you'll ever need it). That alone makes it worth reading our review.TabbloReviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (September 2006)This online sharing service lets you create photo montages to share online for free or print as posters -- gorgeous posters up to five feet by 16 inches.Tiffen Photo fx UltraReviewby Mike Pasini (August 2012)Tiffen knows the difference between a filter and a special effect. Fortunately, both are on the guest list for the party that's Photo fx Ultra, which runs rather nicely on a iPad with iOS 4.3 or later. Now in its fifth version, Photo fx Ultra provides eight categories of 77 filters with 934 presets (all with thumbnail previews of your actual image). Read our review for the whole story.Varifocus Plug-InReviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (February 2001)There is a very fine line any image editor must learn to observe. It's the line beyond which believability dissolves. Image editors make it very easy to composite images, moving a gorilla shot at the local zoo to your living room couch, say. But it isn't believable (generally speaking) because you are mixing outdoor light and indoor with completely different shadow effects to boot. So when we say you can do selective focus in your image editor, we aren't talking about your everyday Guassian blur. We're talking about using a sophisticated Photoshop-compatible plug-in like Andromeda's VariFocus. VariFocus provides an easy-to-use graduated blur with a comprehensive set of masks for all your image editing fantasies. Check the review for all the details!ViewPointReviewby Mike Pasini (September 2012)Ever try to get rid of those geometric distortions you get when you shoot wide angle or even just point up at a tall building (or any building)? Did you think your image editing software was going to make it easy? Are you alive to tell the tale? Well, survivor, you can relax because DxO Labs has wrapped its anamorphic and keystoning technology in a sweet little package that does all that with just a click or four. Read our review for the details.Vuescan 8.1Reviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (December 2004)We finally got our hands on a scanner long enough to review Ed Hamrick's VueScan. And we're glad we did. Read our review to find out why.Whiteboard PhotoReviewbyStephanie Boozer with "Color Commentary" by Dave Etchells (March 2000)Ever take notes at a meeting or in school? (That covers pretty much everybody, doesn't it?) Now, there's an incredibly slick little program from Pixid you can use with your digicam to turn any whiteboard, blackboard, or even green-board scribbles into perfectly neat handouts or meeting notes! This one's a real winner, not just for corporate types, but for students & teachers as well. One of the handiest programs we've seen in quite a while! Check it out!WD PhotosReviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (April 2010)Western Digital has released a free iPhone app that can display your entire photo collection without storing it on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Instead, it accesses thumbnails optimized for the small screen on your network-attached server through making quick work of the downloads. It's your photos from your cloud on your iPhone. Read our review for the story.93 Photo StreetReviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (August 2004)When Transmutable Software released its $30 93 Photo Street a few days ago, we yelled, "Eureka!" Plenty of prospectors have perished with a map in their hands looking for the spot where the treasure is buried. Trevor F. Smith's program eschews the X for an image. And that's worth a thousand words.ACDSee ProReviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (February 2007)ACD Systems ( ) calls ACDSee Pro a "photo manager." Designed to streamline a photographic workflow, it competes on the Windows platform only with Adobe's Lightroom. Like Lightroom, it has relied on user feedback to evolve into a particularly useful tool.Adobe Configurator 1.0Reviewby Mike Pasini, Editor, The Imaging Resource Newsletter (October 2008)Photoshop may be the industry standard -- but that covers a lot of industries. So the program's interface is pretty general. Enter Configurator. Adobe will release this utility on Adobe Labs when Creative Suite 4 ships but we got a prelease version to play with. And we went right to work, building two custom panels to handle two tasks we do every day: resize images and retouch them. It took no programming smarts to built the panels (just drag and drop) but we were surprised by how useful they were. Read our review for the full story.Adobe Creative Suite 2: BridgeReviewby Mike Pas
