    Ok ok ok,

    I use alot of graphics in my work and create alot of graphic files.

    Keeping them in order and organized is obviously very important!

    So what the best, i used to use ACDSEE on the Pcheese and it was great.
    But they dont have an OSX version, thats freakin INcredible and SAD!
    For them, cause I am sure there is something else and they will be left out.

    I tried iPhoto and it has a few disadvantages.
    I am trying iView MediaPro, doesnt seem too bad.
    Though dragging the folders onto the window to create thumbnails makes me wonder what is happening, was it moving the file?
    Creating thumbnails at what file size cost, is it merely viewing the folder and generating the preview like ACDSEE used to do?

    What do you artists use?

    Point me in the right direction!
    If there are any other great utility appz like this around that are good to have on a graphic system, PUHLEASE let me know.

    I want to get my MAC up to speed on working in synch with graphics.
    You know, well configured.

    ACDsee is available for OS X. I've got it running under 10.1.5.

    You can get it from versiontracker.com

    First of all, ACDC does exist for Mac OS X...


    It just sucks. It's at version 1.6 and is terrible compared to the ACDC for PC. There's no lightbox, and it's super slow (even on my dual 800). This is the one thing that I have thought was better on a PC than a Mac.

    Anyway, I haven't found anything else that is nearly as good as the PC ACDC, but I've just ordered Photoshop 7, and am hoping that the asset management in there is good.

    I'll tell you when it arrives.

    In the meantime, if youfind anything good, please post it.

    I also use ACDSee on my Mac, as there doesn't seem to be anything better (the File Management in PS7 isn't that good), but I admit it sucks compared to the Windows version :(
