David Morrison has it right. This is a Mac version of an app made for PCs, with limited functionality on Macs. Among its other deficiencies, the default full-screen GUI is a pain in the neck to use. Plus, the $80 price is way too high for such an inferior app. The best RAW photo editor I've found is a free open-source app called LightZone. It does everything you're likely to need & then some. Though it's also adapted for Macs, this one is done right, not sloppy like Corel. LightZone is very easy to use & totally stable. Never crashed on me yet. Efficient & customizable interface. Lots of useful editing features, including great selection tools, feathering, etc.. I like it as well as Apple Aperture & it's all yours; no 'subscription' like with Adobe apps. And did I mention it's free? All you have to do is sign up. To find it, just googl "LightZone".

I tried to update from v 2 without success. Asked for help Corel Germany gave me silly advice, e.g. to download a Mac versio, then to install a Windows administrator account.. But after reading the comments here it's perhaps better not to update,-)

I wish I hadn't paid for the upgrade to Pro from the bundle purchase of the standard version. I was hoping for something better than Photos, and better performing than Lightroom, but Aftershot 3 does not fulfil either of those.

It's OK, and probably alright if you're looking to start out with a new DAM/Editor. Organising tools are rather confusing and cumbersome for a start. Editing is not all that great either - the sharpen tool is pretty awful - it looks like there's bacteria growing everywhere with the bad application across smooth image areas (even Photos outperforms it here) - or you can just end up with colour noise. I did eventually get a better result, but only after spending time tweaking various adjustments.

To be honest I'd say you're better off saving money and looking to RawTherapee, Darktable or Lightzone, which all offer better performance in most editing areas, with similar DAM capabilities. Definitely not worth considering if you have a lot of work to do with migrating images across from an existing DAM setup.

AfterSshot Pro v.2 was indeed a promising app. Unfortunately this is not true for v. 3: not only is it no longer localized, but above all it crashes many times without any warning. To make it crash it is sufficient to click on an image (or a folder) that had been removed from the library. It is not even possible to remove a folder from AS3 that doesn't exist any more. At least on a Mac this is just not useable, even if it's more rapid than competitors in ingesting and exporting. My main problem with AS3 is that it does not create useable image previews that remain visible in the library even if the external storage disc was removed.

This is another head scratcher. Maybe it’s just me but the preview image you’re working from just doesn’t look very good; it seems grainy and chunky on a MacBook Pro Retina screen. It doesn’t take much of a zoom for the image to get chunky and pixellated. If you zoom in past 1:1 the image degrades horrifically. I tried many different images in several other image apps and they didn’t have this issue but they all exhibited this behavior in AfterShot Pro 3 (and 2, for that matter). And the sliders on the tools just don’t feel EXACT, you know what I mean? When I make an adjustment it feels like I’m ‘in the ballpark’ instead of ‘that’s the spot.’ Maybe it has something to do with the low res previews? In which case, how can I trust what I see? I actually own v2 and v3 as they came in bundles and I’m still passing on this.

Corel must really believe their Aftershot Pro version 3's superiority over version 2, to the point of devaluing the latter, even. With the discount only for new customers, the price for version 3 is only $4.00 more than the upgrade price from version 2. An incentive for new customers. Conversely, a disincentive for us old ones...

I agree, the upgrade price has deterred me from purchasing this. The changes between V2 and V3, aside from the differences in performance aren't that significant, to the point that they justify the cost they are charging for this upgrade. If the price was more reasonable (or the current discount on the full price product could have been equally applied to the upgrade) then I would have likely immediately purchased an upgrade.

Now that everyone with at least a smartphone has become a “photographer,” you probably have an image-management system already. And if you have a DSLR, you’ve probably settled down with a favorite RAW processor. But if you haven’t yet decided on a processing-and-management system, or if you just love to dip your hands into digital color, you owe it to yourself to check out Corel’s latest release of AfterShot Pro. With AfterShot Pro 3, Corel is challenging even the most established apps in the processing-and-management category. The interface is imminently customizable, with “unpinnable” panels; draggable tabs; collapsible sidebars; and a dark, low-distraction theme. If you like to keep the stylus in one hand and the other hand on the keyboard, you’ll find that there’s a keyboard shortcut for almost everything. The usual suspects are in the adjustment lineup: color, tone, and detail adjustments; but you’ll also find options for editing metadata and for adding image or text watermarks. You’ll find RAW-noise reduction, which you probably expected; but there’s also Perfectly Clear noise reduction, which is perfect for images in a non-RAW format. And if you want to jump straight to OMG-I’m-Seriously-Impressed, go to the Standard tab and turn on Perfectly Clear under Basic Adjustments. I know: the last place you’d expect to find a man behind the curtain. If you do nothing else, you need to take a look at the Perfectly Clear feature. It seriously rocked my pixels. At the other end of the workflow, you have slideshow generation, Web-gallery creation, batch processing,… more features and options than you would ever expect. Corel has covered this topic completely, from ingest to output. You’re going to think it’s Christmas in May! So download AfterShot Pro 3 and take your pics for a spin. The decision should be Perfectly Clear. ;-)

@1goncat Thank you for letting us know LightZone is back. I loved that app but when it stopped working, a quick check to their site assumed it was gone forever. This has made my day!

Thank you for your feedback. Today we released a new version of AfterShot Pro (version 3) that has had a lot of work put into performance and usability enhancements. While it is not free, as an open-source application, it is a great product that we hope you will consider using; and providing a positive review.

I am sorry, but this is unusable.
1. It opens a window that fills the entire screen. You cannot resize it or move it. )It has a Full Screen option as well that gives you a few extra millimetres. Cannot see the point of making the main window fixed size filling the screen.
2. It is modal so that you cannot do anything else but work with the front window. Mac apps (mostly) stopped doing that in OS 8.
3. Because of point 1, you cannot drag pictures into the window to import them because you cannot access anything else.
4. If you select "Import from a folder", the dialogue box does not show any external disks. All my photos are on external disks!
I gave up after this.If there are this many problems in the first two minutes, investigating further is going to be a waste of time.
