AfterShot Pro 3 is a program aimed at photographers of all skill sets; it’s a package for organising, tweaking
and sharing your photos. Although it perhaps isn’t as advanced as more expensive programs
on the market, it positions itself as compact and capable at the basics, making it easy to process photos while offering the ability to watermark shots and fantastic layering options.
The first thing that really grabs you about AfterShot 3 is not just how clean the layout of the program is but how responsive and
quick it is too. AfterShot feels really easy to use but boasts new correction tools to help fix chromatic aberration and lens distortion, and the presets included in the program are useful for making simpler edits to your pictures.
The layers panel is what really makes AfterShot feel so user-friendly though; while the editing tools themselves vary in terms of
how sophisticated they are, the layers panel breaks them down into far more manageable editing steps. The sliders within the program,that can help control everything from basic adjustments to advanced exposure options,are also easy to use and of fantastic quality.
AfterShot is considerably cheaper than a lot of RAW processing programs on the market,and in all honesty, it does feel so. But while it does take a more simplistic approach than some of its rivals, it’s not without its marquee features that set it apart from others. It’s still quick and powerful and offers a lot to hobbyist photographers as well as professionals.
