      IrfanView vs ACDSee Photo Studio opinions
      Most users think IrfanView is a great alternative to ACDSee Photo Studio.
      menace97 ACDSee as a suite is so much more, but it is difficult to NOT compare one of the most popular "viewers" of all time to IrfanView. It would be wrong imo to not show those looking for an alternative VIEWER to ACDSee, IrfanView.

      Ease to use, with enough options for no pro users. Ah, and it´s really lightweight!

      InfranView will not let you view images (or thumbnails) in a folder... its for viewing one file at a time. There is a Thumbnails feature, which is kind of similar, but not really the same thing. Navigating is a PITA.

      It already 2019, and ACDSee still does not support images larger than 100 million pixels, for which I have to give up. IrfanView is OK, at least for large images.

      Farrukh An open-source, free alternative with lots of good features. But it is slower in performance (tested in Windows 10) as compared to ACDSEE, XnView, and Faststone Image Viewer.

      Farrukh Although it doesn't have a good asset manager, this is the best open-source, Photo ReTouching tool, however with a Steep Learning Curve. Its features more powerful and advance than ACDSEE and even Adobe Lightroom. I've almost switched to it from Adobe Lightroom.
