    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?

      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:
