Corel AfterShot Pro 2 gets 64-bit architecture, new tools

updated 04:42 pm EDT, Wed May 21, 2014

Mac, Linux HDR tools promised 'later this summer'

Corel has released AfterShot Pro 2, a new edition of its RAW workflow software for Mac, Windows, and Linux. The app has been converted to a 64-bit architecture, allowing it to not only run faster but take greater advantage of available memory. Images can now measure up to 250 megapixels, for example, and TIFF files can scale over 30MB.

The app's interface has been streamlined and incorporates a number of small additions, such as Enhanced Zoom for previewing images, and an Image Reset button that can undo all changes. Batch processing should be simpler, and red eye removal can now be done manually. Similarly, a Local Contrast tool lets users make specific objects stand out.

New noise reduction technology is said to adjust lighting for each pixel while keeping color and clipping consistent. A Windows-only feature is a set of HDR (high dynamic range) composition tools; Corel says, however, that the technology should be coming to Mac and Linux "later this summer."

AfterShot Pro 2 is $80 new, or $60 as an upgrade from previous versions. For a limited time the upgrade pricing also applies to owners of PaintShop Pro X6, Apple Aperture, or Adobe Lightroom 5.
