There have been some major new releases this week but I'm more excited about the new version of ACDSee rather than Vista RC1, Office 2007 refresh or the other big releases. ACDSee is a fantastic image viewer that enables you to quickly view photos and images, without spending time waiting for an app to load before you can view an image.
However, over the last couple of years ACDSee has moved to counteract the competition and turned the fantastic image viewer in to a fully-fledged photo manager. That's resulted in mixed opinions regarding the product - it's attempting to do what everyone else is doing. Now with the latest ACDSee v9, you still have all the benefits of an advanced photo manager, but if you simply want to view and preview images - and view them quickly - one of the key new features is the QuickView mode.
There's competition though. Check out the latest version of Picasa. If you want a decent media manager, try iView Media Pro. If you want an advanced photo editor, give the new version of Paint Shop Pro XI a try.
