Migrate from Photoshop & LightroomYoko Zarry2020-02-01T00:03:27+00:00
ACDSee has made it easy to move your photo editing and management workflow from Adobe® software. Here’s how:
Direct-to-HDD (no photo importing)
Unlike Lightroom, ACDSee Photo Studio Ultimate, Photo Studio Professional, and Photo Studio Home do not require users to import photo collections. ACDSee operates off of its user’s hard-drive, which means that when you open up the product for the first time, you can simply navigate to your photography collection and begin your workflow.
This also translates to RAW edits in Develop mode. In ACDSee when you make changes to an image, they are saved as an XMP file in the edited file’s native location on your hard-drive.
A Common question that we get asked is if ACDSee can open DNG files. DNGs™ are a RAW container format created by Adobe®. You can open and edit DNG files in ACDSee.
