Known Issues

  • In some cases, on Windows 7 and Vista, when a camera is connected to a computer via a USB cable, the Import tool may fail to display media files and will not copy them. In these cases we recommend copying items from these devices to your computer with Windows Explorer or import the media through a card reader.
  • ACDSee may crash when viewing some high resolution .mov videos.
  • Content of iPhone and other WIA devices does not display correctly when browsed directly with ACDSee.

Not Supported

  • ACDSee does not preserve the transparency in GIF and PNG files.
  • ACDSee does not preserve layers in PSD and TIFF files.
  • ACDSee does not support Joliet Unicode name extensions (applicable when burning CD/DVDs).
  • ACDSee does not preserve EXIF and IPTC metadata when a PSD file is edited.
