Very Useful!

I use many of the features. It’s well built, a good UI and well supported. It’s now my go to photo App.

Great app from Great software

I got this app because for years I used their software. Maybe even before digital cameras were readily available. It started, at least for me, as the best software for organizing and viewing photos on my PC. And, oddly enough, it was touted in a review as the best photo viewing software for looking at porn. Yeah, I know, you never look at porn. But in the very early years of the internet there were Newsgroups. You connected using a modem and waited as you slowly downloaded any pictures that interested you (not necessarily erotica). To review and sort photos ACDSee was the best. For years! Ultimately that task became a subset of more robust photo editors, like Adobe Elements and others.

ACDSee tried to keep up, but not that well. It did one thing well, and better than others. And it was cheap. Enter the iPhone and iPad. And apps. This is where ACDSee may no longer be needed, or the best at the original task, but excels as a photo editor. For reducing noise, enhancing skin tone, light balance and other functions, it is my goto app. Along with Photoshop Fix, it goes into the professional realm of photo editing.

I think the denoise function may have been a small add on cost, but all well worth it. Updates are always free and usable on multiple devices. Highly recommended.
