The latest versions of ACDSee and ACDSee PowerPack continue to be a favorite of industry leading computer and photography publications.

ACDSee 6, for example, can burn CDs and DVDs from within the program, eliminating the need to open a separate burning utility and compile a disc from files residing all over the hard drive.
