    Is it possible to search for keywords in Aftershot pro. For example if I have keywords for each of my grandchildren can I search for photos that contain one, two of three of the children.

      Hello Ken,

      Absolutely! Keywords can be a little complex to set up, but they make organizing and searching photos a breeeze. We don’t have a tutorial that goes into this in detail just yet, but in the meantime here’s the user guide’s keyword entry to get you started.

    Having just purchased & installed Aftershot Pro 3, I was extremely disappointed to discover that it doesn’t recognise the RAW files (.DNG) shot with my Huawei mobile phone camera…..Please tell me I’m doing something wrong!

      Thanks for the feedback! We do not currently have anything to announce regarding an ETA for Huawei RAWs, but we have made sure they are on the list for potential inclusion in a future update. You can also request it be added directly from within AfterShot by opening Get More > Submit Feedback. Here is a list of our currently supported image files for reference.

    Hi, I’m new to Aftershot Pro. I have been using Capture One and I would like to try Aftershot Pro. I would like to know the following.

    !. Does Aftershot Pro has Clarity feature that is found in Capture One?
    2. Are the edited RAW files saved in Aftershot or updated in the PC folder where we originally imported from?
    3. Does Aftershot have profiles for Sony A7III camera, Tamron 28-75 f2.8 and Sony 85 FE f1.8 lenses?

    Appreciate your response.

      Hello Raj,

      AfterShot does have a Clarity tool, although it is called “Local Contrast” (That’s what the Clarity tool in Capture One or Lightroom is doing), and can be found in the Tone tab.

      AfterShot is a non-destructive photoeditor, meaning that all changes made to a RAW image are saved as a separate .xml file. When AfterShot loads the RAW file, it checks the associated xml and applies the changes to the image in-program, allowing you to go back and change any step in the process without worrying about the original file. When you export an image from AfterShot, it saves a new copy with all your changes now permanently applied, as the file type you specify during export.

      Finally, AfterShot does have a Sony A7III profile!

      If you would like to take a closer look before buying, we do offer a 30-day free trial of AfterSho Pro 3 for just that situation.

      Hope this helps,

    Nowhere does these tutorials show how to import file from camera source….
    Imported RAW files from camera (Nikon D3400) cannot open in AS Pro… How do I adjust to allow for RAW image files

      Hello Ray,

      The best way to handle RAW photos from a camera is to copy them to a folder on your PC and then import to AfterShot from that folder. This avoids additional latency from continuously accessing large files through a USB connection, as well as potential storage issues from retrieving and saving to the camera’s storage, and potential loss of work or file corruption from accidentally unplugging the camera during work.

      Hope this helps!

    1) I want to know whether I can edit jpeg photographs in AfterShot Pro.

    2) After editing my jpeg photographs THE ENTIRE CAMERA PARTICULAS LIKE MAKE OF THE CAMERA, ISO, SPEED AND APERTURE etc are missing. Can I retain all the exposure purticulars INTACT after editing with AfterShot Pro?

      Hello Krishnamoorthy,

      Yes! AfterShot Pro is designed with lossless editing in mind, and it respects your photos’ metadata. If you would like to take a closer look, you can download a free trial directly from the AfterShot Pro page!

    If I have After Shot Pro, why do I need Paintshop Pro?

    August 31, 2016 at 2:28 pm
    • Adam Reply

      Thanks for asking! Whether you need PaintShop depends on your use case.

      AfterShot Pro a RAW image processor, and so is oriented towards handling and manipulating large RAW files. PaintShop Pro is a more dedicated editing program, oriented towards fine editing of processed RAWs (such as with AfterShot!), or other image formats such as .png or .jpg files. If you are more interested in minor adjustments to your RAWs and preserving the format, that’s AfterShot. If you want to get crazy with your special effects and collages, that is more of PaintShop’s wheelhouse.

      If you would like to see some of the differences for yourself, we would suggest downloading the free 30-day trial of PaintShop Pro, available from the main product page, here:
