Conclusion: Corel needs to step up its game if it wants a serious contender in the photo workflow space. Though it's fast and has some decent photo adjustment and retouching tools, AfterShot lacks basics such as red-eye correction and Web sharing.
Pros: Fast display of large raw files. Good auto-correction. Accepts and includes industry-standard plug-ins.
Cons: Weak import feature. Interface could be friendlier. No dual-monitor support. Very limited camera and lens profiles. No red-eye correction. No Web or e-mail sharing features.
Excerpt: AfterShot Pro builds on the foundation of Bibble 5 software, so it enjoys an advanced RAW workflow – such files appear in Thumbnail view very quickly and the application applies adjustments with welcome speed.
