AfterShot Pro 3 Arrives: Get Better Looking Photos, Faster!


Today, I’m excited and proud to announce the release of AfterShot Pro 3available right now at and coming soon to resellers like B&H and Amazon.

In ASP3, you’ll find some big changes under the hood that will elevate your photo workflow by helping you get better images, faster.  Recover more detail in blown-highlights than ever before with our all-new highlight recovery algorithm. Shave time off your workflow with all-new time-saving tools, like advanced watermarking and layer-based Blemish Correction. Plus get modular camera updates, plugins and presets more delivered dynamically, directly in-app.

According to industry experts at Deloitte, an estimated 2.5 trillion photos will be shared or stored online in 2016, a 15% increase over the year before. And those are just the ones that make it to the Web… How many more are on our hard drives?

AfterShot Pro 3 is built on industry-leading performance, adding features that help photographs get through today’s overwhelming volume of photos quickly, and with amazing results. For the pro-shooter, time is money. And enthusiasts… we fight just to carve out a little time for our hobbies, am I right? You dream of capturing that perfect shot… not a day-long marathon of importing, cataloging, editing, and exporting a memory card full of images.

We want you to spend more time with your camera, not your computer. AfterShot Pro is fast—on average 4x faster than Lightroom—but that’s nothing new. From its inception, AfterShot Pro (and its predecessor, Bibble) has been designed to leverage multicore processing to deliver top notch performance. And having the choice to work without catalogs doesn’t hurt our speed either!

With this release, the AfterShot Pro team focused on delivering all-new ways to save you time and speed up your workflow—and we’re talking about more than just pure processing horsepower. AfterShot Pro 3 brings fundamental improvements to image quality with our new Highlight Recovery algorithm, adds built-in watermarking, and introduces an entirely new way to dynamically update content in AfterShot Pro 3, so you can get more camera profiles, more plugins, and more presets directly in-app.

Ready to explore for yourself? It’s free to try for 30 days, so download AfterShot Pro 3 now or keep reading to find out more about what’s new!

    Really pleased to see this great software has been updated. One question: Does it work with Fuji RAF files created on a Fuji X-E2 with the V4 firmware update? Aftershot 2.4 does not support them and I haven’t been able to use it since my camera was updated.
    Oddly Lightroom does support them and did from the day the firmware was updated, but I don’t like Lightroom!

      Hey Andy, thanks for letting us know. I’ll check in on that particular profile for you with our dev team. If a fix is needed, we’ll get an update out as soon as we can through the new dynamic profile updater. Hang tight and we’ll get you fixed up! If you have the ASP3 trial installed, you can also provide feedback to our dev team, right in-app, using the new Feedback button. Thanks again, Andy.

        Hi Alex,
        Thanks for replying. I have tried to download ASP3, but the link only downloads an ASP2 installation file (asp2_seo.exe). Can you get the link corrected, or post a new link here please?

        • Alex Brazeau says

          Hey Andy, apologies for leaving you hanging here. Can you tell me which link you were clicking on to still see ASP2? If it’s still happening, I’ll get the team on it right away. Thanks.

        Hi Alex,
        I found the download using a different set of links eventually. The original one has now been fixed. I’m really pleased to tell you that I can use Fuji RAF files now.

    which Revision of Perfectly Clear is part of Aftershot Pro 3? Is Beautify (Part of rev. 2) available?

    • Alex Brazeau says

      Hi Peter, sorry about that. The version of Perfectly Clear in ASP3 includes the one-click image correction for which they’re best known. In just a single click, Perfectly Clear makes as many as 20 automatic corrections. A more feature-filled version is also available on Athentech’s website, and includes the beautification tools you mention. Hope this helps!
