Corel released AfterShot Pro 3, the newest version of its non-destructive RAW editor.
It adds a bunch of cool features like more powerful highlight recovery and the ability to create custom lens correction profiles.
AfterShot Pro 3 claims to be up to 4 times faster than Lightroom. In Corel’s own lab tests on an Intel Core i7 machine running Windows 10, it was able to export the same 100 RAW files to 80% JPEG up to 4x faster than Lightroom. They tested RAW files from Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Sony, and Panasonic.
Exporting isn’t the only thing they tested. Corel also put test on importing to catalog was about 3x faster, and the initial scan of 100 RAW images over 4x faster.
