    Arrg! Yes you can! I meant Noise control It's very early where I live and I haven't had any coffee!

    1. MORE EXIF editing ability! There is no such thing as too much!
    2. Extend sharpening into the Develop Brushes!
    3. For luminosity noise, the ability to quickly desaturate,adjust for luminosity noise and then resaturate the photo would be a significant addition to the workflow. and imrove ACDSee's NR tool considerably. This would be a quick and easy change http://glenbarrington.blogspot.com/2...technique.html

    I SO AGREE WITH THIS ONE! Been my number 1 issue with ACDSee for a number of years. Searching used to work like this.. but along the way they took out that feature. Amazing you can't do a pretty basic search like that one. PLEASE fix this simple issue and allow us to do more advanced searches! Thank you.

    Since Pro v6 the keyword edit box in the organize tab of the properties pane shows a drop down list with suitable keywords to pick from. I'd love to see this for the iptc keywords box in the meta data pane of the properties tab too. The auto completion here is awkward, esp. in German language with it's concatenated nouns. (E.g. "Donaudampfschiffahrtsgesellschaftskapitän" vs. "Donaudampfschiffahrtsgesellschaftskapitänspatent " :-)

    Addition: Allow a controlled vocabulary with a predefined list of keywords supplied by the user. (I have tons of typos in my master keyword lists.)

    Issues that I would like to see addressed in Pro 10...

    - In Manage mode, I have many scanned slides I have manually entered EXIF data for, so I like to sort my images based upon Date/Time Digitized and Sort Backwards so newest images are at the top. My issue is that when I navigate to a new directory, I almost always have to go back and change the sorting order back to Date/Time Digitized and Sort Backwards. Why can I not specify a sorting order and it stays in that order until I change it to something else?

    - In Manage Mode, under Batch/Edit I have many presets that I use very regularly. When I upgrade I like all these presets to come across to the new version without having to manually re-enter them all

    Wow, that's some list! I have two more to add:
    1.PLEASE have some way to increase the size of the thumbnails in the Image Basket and have a way to alter the contents of the pop up label (like show the name of the file). The image basket would be very helpful for my projects - if I could see what the images in the basket were.
    2. Please don't limit the size of jpgs in edit mode. Images over 18000 px wide don't load correctly.

    I more and more miss support for alternative languages in the meta data saved like this in xmp:

    <xmpRights:UsageTerms>
    <rdf:Alt>
    <rdf:li xml:lang='x-default'>default usageterms</rdf:li>
    <rdf:li xml:lang='de'>Meine deutschen Nutzungsbedingungen</rdf:li>
    <rdf:li xml:lang='en'>My English usageterms</rdf:li>
    </rdf:Alt>
    </xmpRights:UsageTerms>

    This of course not only is needed for usage terms. Localized keywords and descriptions are even more important.

    I have a small complaint about the curves tool. The grid is not centred. The central cross of the grid should be in the center of the curves tool. And it would be helpfull, if there was a control line behind the line of the curves tool, so I can exactly see, how I changed the line.

    I suggest the 10th, 11th and 12th tone band in the Light EQ.
    I had experienced the lack of "steps" with some images, specially landscapes where the sky and the floor need a different treatment. You can use the Color EQ in some cases but when there are a lake or sea. The sky and the water are blue and you can not fix them separately. This is why I also suggested color corrections by a Develop Brush.

    Light EQ. is very powerful, in fact, you can fully remove the "haze" with it in a much better way than with the dehaze tool added to Edit Mode.

    Its standard mode is better than the Advanced mode because you have more control and chance to make deeper adjustments since you do not have to follow a tone curve pattern. Other programs made the same using the such curve, but I prefer to use controls..

    I second that suggestion, especially if they can speed up retrieving the search results.

    I've added another bug to my list (second post in this thread): Fix IPTC Keyword Picker value Legends bug.
