Joins Apple, Adobe in workflow tools

Corel has launched AfterShot Pro, a new photo utility. Much like Adobe's Lightroom or Apple's Aperture, AfterShot Pro is a RAW/JPEG workflow tool meant mainly for professional photographers. Users can organize photos into catalogs or folders, tag them, and perform a number of non-destructive edits without having to open images in a dedicated editor like Photoshop.

Some distinguishing features include multi-version editing, the ability to work with images without importing them, and side-by-side image comparisons. Noise reduction is handled through Noise Ninja, and a technology called Perfectly Clear can be used to automatically fix lighting, tint, and/or fading in a photo while minimizing color and clipping issues.

Batch output can be linked to predefined settings for things like JPEGs, PDFs, contact sheets or print copies. It also supports web gallery creation, and backup and archival functions. Corel is selling AfterShot Pro for $100; Mac, Linux, and Windows editions are available. The Mac software requires OS X 10.5 or later and at least 2GB of RAM.
