Well, just as an example, check out the drag-and-drop workflow builder in this video on YouTube
. The video refers to Beta 1.2 as a "sneak peek" but in fact it is now out.
As another example -- while ACDSee Pro for Mac is primarily designed to be used as an image manager, it can actually manage ANY kind of digital assets -- movies, music, files -- whatever you like! GC can't do that (and maybe that's not a feature you care about, but the point is that its there).
Maybe I'm mis-interpreting what you are saying, but you aren't touting something that we aren't already accustomed to.
Yeah, I should have made myself more clear on that, sorry. Just for the record, I am an longtime, hardcore Mac user. I don't use Windows, gave it up 20 years ago, don't expect to ever use it regularly.
What I meant was that ACDSee will not "re-copy" images from other programs' vaults/libraries/folders, taking up more room on your HD with duplicates. You can try out the ACDSee beta without worrying that it will move files around from where you or your other programs put them (you can *opt* to move/copy files if you want to, but that's strictly your decision).
Finally, if you would prefer to see what we're shooting for with the Mac version, you might want to check out the feature overview video
for ACDSee Pro 3 for Windows. Despite having to look at ugly old Windows to do so, I think you'll see in that video why a lot of people are very keen on bringing some of that over to the Mac.
