ACDSee 16

What is ACDSee 16?

ACDSee is a image organizer, viewer, and RAW / image editor programs for Microsoft Windows. ACDSee's main features are speed, lossless RAW/image editing, image batch processing, metadata (Exif/IPTC), with support to edit/embed metadata in image files, rating, keywords, and categories, and geotagging/GPS support. Judging the image quality of a picture is fast due to next/previous image caching, fast image/RAW decoding and support for one-click toggling between 100% and fit screen zoom mode anywhere inside the image. For professional, users most of ACDSee's features can be accessed via keyboard.

Overview

The most common release is 16.1.88, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The primary executable is named ACDSeeDesktopShortcu_F99F74B4972B4B06B8936B3B0DB0128B.exe. The setup package generally installs about 199 files and is usually about 76.9 MB (80,631,254 bytes).
