About the ACDSee user interface
The ACDSee user interface provides easy access to the various tools and features you can use to browse, view, edit, and manage your images and media files. The following section describes each of the three main parts of ACDSee, and explains the function of each component.
The ACDSee Browser is the main browsing and managing component of the user interface, and is what you see when you start ACDSee using the shortcut icon on your desktop. In the Browser, you can find, move, preview, and sort your files, and access the organization and sharing tools. The Browser consists of nine panes, eight of which can be closed when not in use. The File List pane is always visible, and displays the contents of the current folder, the results of your latest search, or the files in your database that match your filtering criteria. A status bar, located at the bottom of the Browser window, displays information about the currently selected file, folder, or category.
8 | Running ACDSee for the first time
The Browser also features two toolbars: the main toolbar, which provides shortcuts to commonly used commands, and the context-sensitive toolbar, which provides different shortcuts depending on what is currently selected in the Browser. You can open and close panes, move them to different areas of your screen, and stack them on other panes or dock them to the edge of your desktop. Most panes also have additional options you can set to further customize their behavior and appearance. For more information about the Browser panes and their different functions, see About Browser panes on page 20.
The ACDSee Viewer plays media files and displays images in full resolution, one at a time. You can also open panes in the Viewer to view image properties, display areas of an image at varying magnifications, or examine detailed color information. You can open the Viewer directly by double-clicking an associated file type in Windows Explorer, and you can use the Viewer to flip quickly between all of the images in a folder, or compare two or more images side by side. The Viewer contains a toolbar with shortcuts to commonly used commands, and a status bar, located at the bottom of the Viewer window, which displays information about the current image or media file. For more information about the Viewer, as well as more detailed descriptions of the Viewer panes, see Viewing on page 57.
You can customize the appearance of thumbnails in the File List pane by choosing which image information and overlay icons to display, and by setting the thumbnail size, ratio, and spacing. You can control and adjust the size of the thumbnails by moving the Thumbnail Size slider in the File List pane toolbar. For more information, see File List toolbar on page 25. To customize thumbnails in the File List pane: 1. Click Tools | Options. 2. In the Options dialog box, click Thumbnail Display or Thumbnail Ratio. 3. On the thumbnail options pages, set or change any of the options described below. 4. Click OK to accept your changes and return to ACDSee.
