Today, I’m excited and proud to announce the release of AfterShot Pro 3—available right now at AfterShotPro.com 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.

What’s New in AfterShot Pro 3
With an all-new algorithm under the hood, the enhanced Highlight Recovery Range slider now rescues more detail and tones from overexposed RAW images, delivering superior image quality.
NEW | Comprehensive Watermarking
Protect your photos online and promote your work with advanced watermarking abilities. Apply watermarks to individual photos or batches, plus easily adjust size, rotation angle, position, transparency and more.
Save time and edit faster by performing more non-destructive, layer-based touchups and corrections directly in AfterShot Pro 3, without exporting your image to a second editor like Photoshop or PaintShop Pro.
Get access to a library of free and premium photo presets, regularly updated and hand-picked by the Corel Photo Team. Reproduce popular editing looks with the power of our included presets or apply them as a starting point and adjust to create your own. You can also share your creations with the community.
NEW | Dynamic & Modular Camera Profile Updates
AfterShot Pro 3 now has the ability to deliver new and updated RAW profiles faster than ever before. With the modular delivery system, as soon as a new camera profile is created by our development team it’s made available for download directly in-app—no more waiting for the next update to support your new camera.
NEW & ENHANCED | Plugin Development & Download Availability
The new in-app Plugin Manager finds and installs plugins in a flash. Extend any workflow with free plugins from the community, discover premium plugins (like the popular GradFilter Pro), and get the latest plugin updates all in one convenient place. Plus, plugin-developers can leverage our unique RAW-level plugin API and toolkit to build pro-quality plugins to tap into the full power of AfterShot’s processing pipeline.
