  • ACDSee 8 crashes while writing applying Metadata

    I am new to ACDSee for Mac, and have been applying categories to my pictures, I noticed that after applying a category key word to a picture or set of pictures the database icon appears on the image I then select those images and select Metadata> Embed ACDSee Metadata it prepares and then starts to embed. Somewhere along that process the system freezes and a short time reboots my laptop.

    I have a new MacAir M1 with macOS Monterey 12.4

    this is very aggravating as I had only recently purchased the software and went through the extended process of creating my database and importing metadata from my pictures over 150K images.

    anyone have any ideas? I can select between 100 and 500 images at a time and embed the metadata but if I select 800 it 1000 images I get a restart every time

      Hi Zosimus,

      Thank you for this report. Our team is currently investigating this issue. May I ask two questions:
      1) What filetypes are your images?
      2) Where are the images located?

      Thank you,

        As an FYI and additional data point, I've noticed this behavior when writing to PNG files specifically. If I try to write metadata to more than about 3 files, ACDSee very consistently crashes. It seems to happen for me only for PNG files, and it doesn't matter if they are stored locally or on a networked drive. Hope this helps.
