    Thanks for your reply,

    Yes, I do agree with you,

    Lightroom does not have an image editor (pixel editor) like ACDSee. So as far as the developer "mode" is concern, ACDSee and Lightroom are both non-destructive and fully "parametric" editors. That's not the case for the Edit mode in ACDSee. For edit mode, you'll need to compare it to Photoshop which I don't believe is non-destructive either.

    Edit: Just to clarify what I mean with not being none-destructive, I mean that it's not fully parametric editor since it's resorting to using copies of original file to revert back to the original image. Some may disagree with my opinion and that's fine.

    Thanks for your replies.

    I overlooked the way the edited image is being saved as in an ACDC project file.
    Makes sense now.
    I guess I was somehow expecting something like Lightroom's way of doing it.

    I haven't changed the default setting, and really like the way to restore original.

    Thanks again for your help and support,

    To further add to what Greyfox already said, unless you changed the default setting, you always have the option to restore original even after Edit-Save. A copy of the original is saved in a hidden folder from which a file can be restored. You can use Edit in a non-destructive way by applying filters to copies of the base layer rather than the base layer itself and save as ACDSee file format, which as Greyfox mentionned can be re-Edited.

    But taking the image further with Edit Mode I need to save as either a new image or overwrite the existing, making it "destructive".
    I have tried with various formats, including RAW.

    Is this correct or am I missing something ?
    I guess it depends on your definition of non-destructive.
    In its most simple form, as long as you can export an edited version of the image without overwriting the source image, the process has been non destructive

    If you save the edits made in Edit mode as a .ACDC project file, then not only does it not overwrite the original image, but you can at a later stage re-open the file, re-access all the adjustment layers, and re-tweek any of the individual adjustments. That only applies to adjustment layers though. If you use filters from the filter menu, once you click on done, you will not be able to re-tweak the filter setting.

    If you export a JPG or TIFF image from Edit mode, it has all of the results of the edit baked in, and the individual edit steps that were used aren't available from the exported image.

    I personally only use edit mode where I want to use compilation, serious masking, blending or other processes that require the use of layers and plugins..That also generally means that I would not want to have to start again from scratch should I subsequently.need to make some further small change, so I save the ACDC project file.. I then export JPG's or TIFF's from that as needed for the end requirement.

    Editing

    Having used Adobe's PhotoShop Elements and Lightroom for years, I am now slowly easing my way in to editing in ACDSee.

    In Develop Mode, all changes are non-destructive.

    But taking the image further with Edit Mode I need to save as either a new image or overwrite the existing, making it "destructive".
    I have tried with various formats, including RAW.

    Is this correct or am I missing something ?
    Thanks,
Working...
