I've heard good things about photo mechanic. I've never used it, but some people use it for quickly viewing images before they Import from their memory cards. Not sure if this will also work for you're looking for. I think it's pricey though.

I use Lightroom for my uploads.I tried the 30 day trial of ACD for Mac and it just wasn't as good as the PC version so I removed it.
As I understand If you buy Lightroom 6 there will not be any updates ie 6.1 ect for new cameras or features. I gave in and went to CC 9.95 month happy so far

Cheers, guys

Just downloaded a free trial of Acdsee Mac pro. I'll let you know how it goes.

Hmm, that's interesting.

As I understand it, duff is correct. The version of LR you buy, is what you keep. You won't update it till the next version. I guess it's to nudge you into the cloud.

Myself I think the $10 a month for both LR and PS is great. It's the cost of a few coffees per month, no up front charge and you're always up to date on the version of software. No brainier for me.

First impressions of Acdsee Mac pro:

+ It was slow to show thumbnails of images, guess it was building its database. But once loaded it's blazing fast to go through the photos.

- It is missing a major feature...the ability to upload to Smugmug

I will keep you updated as I learn more about this software.

Hmm. If that's the case then it changes my approach to LR. Love its features, very brilliant piece of software! However, I don't like its colors, so I don't use it to convert Canon Raw files. I convert with Canon-supplied DPP then edit the jpegs in LR. There is an alternative to jpeg-editing and that is Google's NIK software (love it! Highly recommended).

Wish Adobe makes an LR-only subscription. That would be cool.

Question:

Can I calibrate an Apple monitor using a MBP.

^ Yes you can. In my case, it made a minor difference.

The thing is still vague, though. For example, did it calibrate the big monitor only or both. What happens when I start the big screen in another day.

I use Photo Mechanic for Winderz, but I know lots of MACers that also swear by it when time matters.

Cheers, zemlin.

I thought Photo Mechanic deals with photos, no? I was referring to monitor calibration.
