Product Description

Corel AfterShot Pro is a fast, flexible photo workflow solution that combines robust photo management, advanced non-destructive editing and complete RAW processing.

From the Manufacturer

Organize your photos in catalogs or folders. Find images quickly with extensive Metadata tools.

Complete RAW Workflow

Whether viewing, rating, sorting, editing, or exporting images, AfterShot Pro provides workflow options not found anywhere else. Other applications make you import a file before you can even view it, but there’s no need with AfterShot Pro. Whether a photo is in an existing catalog, in another folder on your system, or still on a memory card, AfterShot Pro lets you work with it.

Flexible Photo Management

Most photo-workflow programs only allow you to access a single catalog or database at a time, limiting the total number of images you can manage and edit in any one session. AfterShot Pro lets you use one catalog, many catalogs, or no asset management at all. With no restrictions or pre-defined process to follow, you can work whatever way suits you best.

Advanced, Non-Destructive Editing

Inspired by the renowned selective-editing features that made Bibble Labs a force in the industry, AfterShot Pro lets you non-destructively apply any adjustment or correction to all or a portion of a photo. And a fully stocked imageediting toolset allows you to do your work in AfterShot Pro without switching over to a deeper editing tool.

Breakthrough Performance

AfterShot Pro is nimble enough to run on netbooks, but powerful enough to get the most out of 16-core workstations. It’s fully multithreaded and optimized for multi-core and multi-CPU computers, so you’ll notice faster output, conversion, on-screen performance, and image browsing. AfterShot Pro is designed take advantage of every CPU at its disposal.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's very good but not perfect April 19, 2012
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have to preface my review with stating I have been using Adobe products every day for at least 12 years including Photoshop and, for the last 3 years, LightRoom. From that perspective, I will be weighing Corel Aftershot Pro against the industry leader.

For the most part, at first glance and use, Aftershot Pro performs the majority of the tasks you would want it to if comparing it to LightRoom. If you didn't have LightRoom and were not aware of what to expect from image management or raw processing, then this would be a feature-rich, inexpensive platform to start on.

In addition to the almost identical feature set you get with LightRoom, there are a few features that appear to be extra, including the Perfectly Clear plugin from Athentech Technology and the Noise Ninja by Picturecode Inc.. Of these, the one that would be of interest to me is Noise Ninja if I needed to work on a shot where I was shooting in low light and had to increase the ISO above 1600.

Given the perspective I am coming from, the most critical environment I shoot in (and use image management and raw processing for) is NY Fashion Week. Each time I finish shooting a show I come out and give my memory cards to my digital tech and she will download & process and have JPGs ready to send to the client by the end of the next show. In this situation I would introduce risk by using Aftershot Pro because it is not as fast to render images as LightRoom is, and the full-size preview is not an accurate representation of the image once it is processed.

The images I saw when viewing at 100% were generally soft, thus my tech would never know if this was actually in focus or not and wouldn't know if she had selected the best shot for each look.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really astonishing for its price March 10, 2012
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc
My original use was with the previous Bibble Pro version, and then I've gone with the upgrade to Aftershot Pro. The catalog management is top tier, it's fast, and is the *only* multi-platform RAW image editor which includes Linux. It's terrific to work with a non-destructive editor.

Things that really stand out to me:

- I find the interface intuitive
- Noise Ninja integration (and the RAW noise settings) is powerful.
- There are plug-ins, which show promise for the platform (wavelet denoise).
- The contact sheet prints work soooo much better than with Bibble.
- Active forum (forum.corel.com)
- Very CPU and memory efficient.
- ASP provides "Perfectly Clear" optimization, which is frequently the major adjustment that I use (not always, sometimes it goes to far, and other times, there is a lot more work to be done).
- Lots of lenses are supported

Things that I'd like to see added:

- Some HDR capability. There are lots of good programs available for amazing HDR, but having the capability to do some basic blending is important.
- Better print integration (if you are a Linux user, then look at Turboprint)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Imaging Software - Highly Recommended June 8, 2012
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
"Corel AfterShot Pro" is a very powerful imaging program that is likely meant to compete with Adobe Lightroom, and it does so nicely in most regards. We are avid photographers and take hundreds of pictures every year, both for personal use and for professional product photography (which I also teach). While I do like Lightroom, it is fairly expensive and much more processor intensive than AfterShot.

AfterShot installed cleanly (upgraded the first time it ran) and runs very nicely on my aging desktop. The workflow is very intuitive and those familiar with Lightroom and other imaging software will have very little trouble navigating around this software.

The program recognized the RAW files from my Pentax dSLR but surprisingly it also recognized that several of my older pictures were taken with a FujiFilm camera and automatically populated the correct "Lens Correction" information, which was a nice time saving touch. The editing tools are fairly basic compared to dedicated image manipulation software like Photoshop and Corel PaintShop Pro X4 Ultimate, but are perfect for the corrections needed in a photo management software. The "Noise Ninja" is one of the more powerful tools and it does a great great job cleaning up the photos. The program would benefit from more presets and hopefully Corel will address this in future updates.

This is a very viable choice for those wanting a powerful, yet affordable image management solution.

Highly Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice software June 6, 2012

Platform for Display:PC/Mac Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I gave this a try since I really like Corel products. I use Corel Paintshop Pro x4 on a daily basis and it's easy to use and very intuitive. Besides Paintshop, I use Adobe Lightroom. Aftershot pro is shockingly similar at a much better price point for the amateur photographer/photo editor. If I weren't so used to lightroom and hadn't invested the money in it, this would be an absolute must buy. It has the RAW image editing and great work flow as well as the non-destructive editing which I think is a absolute gem if you change your style often. Loaded on my computer in minutes and doesn't eat up a lot of memory to run. The only thing I didn't love is that it's blurry as it changes your photos which lightroom feels pretty instantaneous. As long as you have a little more patience and aren't used to Lightroom's fast pace, this is a solid purchase.
