Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a crash when browsing an excluded removable device. This issue occurred on macOS 12.1 only due to an Apple change.
  • Fixed an issue where ACDSee would become unresponsive when attempting to replace the original file via the Save As panel. This issue occurred on macOS 12.1 only due to an Apple change.
  • Fixed an issue where the dialog to embed ACDSee metadata could become unresponsive if left open for too long.
  • Fixed an issue where ACDSee could become unlicensed if restarted and the ACDSee Mobile Sync app was open on multiple mobile devices.

Known Issues

  • Assigning metadata via the Batch tool fails if preceded by a Move or Copy action.
  • Image doesn’t fit display when app moved to another monitor and Full Screen enabled.
  • File List items are sorted by name if items are uncataloged and sort method is based on EXIF or IPTC metadata.
  • Find Duplicates tool doesn’t work with iCloud Drive.
  • Move to Trash will not work on images stored on cameras.
  • Batch Copy and Batch Move will not work for images stored on cameras.
  • PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol) not supported.
  • Cannot read any ACDSee Metadata embedded in BMP, CUR, DDS, EXR, GIF, HDR, ICO, JP2, MEF, PBM, PSD, or TGA.
  • Batch Copy operation hangs when “Place in subfolder” option is enabled, “Date” token added to the Name, and date format includes slash character (“/”). Workaround: In System Preferences > Language & Region > Advanced… > Dates, remove “/” from the desired format.
  • Import ignores video portion of Live Photos. Workaround: use ACDSee Mobile Sync.
  • ACDSee does not support multiple clients connecting to the same database. ACDSee will become unresponsive if trying to connect to a database that is already open in another instance of ACDSee.
  • Watermark tool Center button doesn’t center watermark for all images in the batch if images are different sizes.
  • Startup time may be impacted if Image Basket contains many items.
  • Keyboard shortcuts assigned to commands that can be renamed (such as Categories, Batch Presets, External Editors) need to be re-assigned if command is renamed.
  • Writing a Spotlight Comment fails with error “Source file not found”.
  • PSD files cannot be placed on the Map.
  • Clone/heal effect is temporarily removed from view if you adjust Exposure or White Balance and image is RAW.
  • If the exposure of a clone/heal source point has been adjusted via brush or gradient, the exposure of the target point will also be adjusted.
  • Dragging keyword tokens from the Properties pane Keywords input field to the Search bar fails to return matching items if the keyword is hierarchical. Workaround: drag the keyword from the keyword list.
  • Color LUTs fail to apply if LUT size is greater than 128.

Notes

  • It’s highly recommended to embed ACDSee Metadata prior to importing or restoring a database from a previous version of ACDSee.
  • When importing a previous version’s database, please ensure the previous version of the application is closed.
  • Importing a previous version’s database may cause the Date Modified timestamp to update but does not modify the actual contents of the database.
  • Apps require permission before directly accessing files in certain folders and external volumes. Please allow ACDSee to access files when prompted, or as follows: go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Files and Folders, find ACDSee, and check the applicable boxes.
  • ACDSee writes metadata to a sidecar file in a hidden subfolder relative to the original file if filetype is HEIC.
  • On first run, the Import Databases tool offers to import the default database of previous versions. If you wish to import a custom database you created in a previous version instead, please close the Import Databases dialog and then use the Restore Database tool (in the Tools menu) and select the database you wish to restore.
