Default ACDSee Pro 4 Beta Open to the Public

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.acdsee.com/offers/probeta' target='_blank'>http://www.acdsee.com/offers/probeta</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"We invite you to participate in the ACDSee Pro 4 public Beta program and have your say in the development of the next version of ACDSee Pro, the software application that helps professional and advanced amateur photographers accelerate their workflow from beginning to end. Preview Pro 4's improved metadata management, enhanced processing technology that will bring out the best in your RAW and other image files, and the new Map feature that allows you to add location information to photos, and view photos by location."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//dht/auto/1288118091.usr1.png" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Like beta testing? Have a bunch of photos you'd like to work with? Then the ACDSee Pro 4 beta might be just the ticket. They're adding some interesting new features, including mapping, enhanced metadata management, and better raw processing. I see ACDSee Pro constantly, but the features I'd like to see added are, I guess, just too "quirky" to ever make it into the product. One example: quite often, the last photo at an event or location that I take is really what I want to be the first of a set. The restaurant sign, the sign for the park I just walked through, etc. I seem to miss those things on the way in to a place, and all I want is a one-click way - or even a drag and drop method - to change all EXIF/file time stamps at once to be just prior to the first photo I took. Think of it as a time machine for photos. I can do this now of course, but it requires changing, at minimum, three EXIF fields. I'd find a feature like that to be quite useful - would you?</p>

I'm certain there'll be software that lets you set the album photo instead of having to go through this whole jumping-through-hoops method. I don't use identifying images for sets though so I'm not sure what alternatives are there for your situation.

Nope, this isn't a matter of an album image or anything like that - it's just that most software sorts by the EXIF date informaton, so even if I rename the image so it's the first in the set, the EXIF will trip me up somewhere along the way. The only way to fix this is to change every piece of data there is so it really is the first in the series.
