ACDsee Pro - Exif and IPTC problematic management

I am checking on ACDsee Pro after two major Releases. Same problematic exif and iptc management.

  1. Exif time still tends to show incorrectly due to UTC conversions (many topics about this)
  2. Every little change or info addition to exif/iptc destroys exif entries (eg exif version, flashpix version, etc) resulting in <Invalid data offset> , bad IFD0 directory and random other errors.

7z shell icons

7z is a must for de/compressing files. For years winrar was my choice. I am a perfectionist about the GUI and I could not stand the 7z interface and shell icons.

My use of file compressing/archiving software is simple, compressing jpgs and tiffs, archiving website projects etc. I can safely say now that the 7z barely wins on those tasks (a few kilo to 1 mega or more - this is based on usage simple observations and not on scientific comparison).

I wouldn 't switch from winrar for the GUI thing, but where the better 7z performance didn' t the "open source" convinced me. OK, I can live with the 7z file manager GUI, but what about the shell icons?
