ViewSpend more time enjoying your photos instead of waiting for them to open. ACDSee's viewing speed is second to none because there is no need to import your photos; ACDSee lets you work with them directly from their original locations. Review your latest shots, browse instant slide shows, and enjoy full-size previews. Any way you look at it, ACDSee works fast.
