ACDSee Photo Manager - YES ! ! !


New Member
I've seen dozens of threads here where people express interest in
various softwares to view different formats and files or thumbnails, etc . . .

ACDSee Photo manager 9 [or] Photo manager pro 8 - will be all the program you will ever need !

I have used this program for 10 years now and it is now and has always been
one of my favorite programs.

If you've ever used ThumbsPlus or some kind of font Viewing program - You're gonna dump
all of those programs and go to this great feature packed program . . . I swear by it !
