Known Issues

  • Content of iPhone and other WIA devices does not display correctly when browsed directly with ACDSee.
  • In some cases, on Windows 7 and 8, 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.

  • When ACDSee moves a layer and commits, everything outside of the editing area will be cropped.
  • ACDC format is not supported in Develop Mode.
  • ACDSee Layered Editor, when in the Move Tool, you cannot add masks.
  • Text/Watermark shows incorrect preview in a certain scenario.
  • Color images turn into black and white when added as layers on a grayscale image.
  • It is recommended that you restart ACDSee after importing a Lightroom database.
