Review: Corel Aftershot Pro
« on: February 06, 2012, 22:23 »
Bibble Pro was a photo-management and raw file-processing application that predated Adobe Lightroom but never quite managed to break into the mainstream. That might just change, with a recent buy-out by Corel, a new name and a significant price cut.

AfterShot Pro is ostensibly a new product, but differences to Bibble Pro 5 are minimal. We’re told the cosmetic interface and underlying colour processing engine have been revamped, but its functions are largely unchanged. Bibble users will need to pay £60 to upgrade; this price also applies to PaintShop Pro users and cross-graders from Lightroom or Aperture. It supports Windows, OS X and Linux; we tested on Windows 7 64-bit, but the application is only available as a 32-bit build.

The sub-£100 price is welcome, but hardly surprising, following recent price cuts to Apple Aperture (£55) and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 (£95 from Amazon), although it remains to be seen how Adobe will price version 4, currently in beta.

Well, with a Corel buyout, expect bloatware and poor support. :(

I have. They were a good company once, but sadly not any longer, at least in my experience.

I first started using it about 18-20 years ago, Sam. How's the weather?

I'm in Brum, so still cold. We fly to India tomorrow night from Heathrow, then it will hopefully be +35 C :-D
