  • Prevent Sidecar from Appearing on Hard Drive?

    When I import images from a sd card to my hard drive with ACDsee, ACDsee puts sidecar with the image on the hard drive. As I am new to ACDsee, is there a way to import images from a card, save keyword and labels so I can view them with Capture One 22, and not have a sidecar on my hard drive? I'm using ACDsee Photo Studio 8 as a DAM and Capture One as an editor. Thanks for whatever advice you can give!

    Hi StevenSL,

    I edit my raw images first, convert them to jpeg's in Capture One 22, save them to a directory and catalog them to a DAM in ACDSee Mac or Ultimate. This way there are no side cars in ACDSee. I then delete the side cars etc in Capture One.

      Harpo, thanks for your Reply and suggestion. I'll try that out. I'm trying to get around deleting .xmp sidecars once they are created.
