Corel AfterShot Pro Service Pack Available

April 21, 2012

In early January Corel released the first version of AfterShot Pro. I did a post titled Corel AfterShot Pro, Formerly Bibble Pro, Now Available that told you all about it. As noted by the title, it is an updated version of the product formerly known as Bibble Pro.

First, we should talk about what it is and who needs it. If you shoot RAW photos with your digital camera, it is a great tool for processing those digital photos. It also has the ability to process JPG files though the results aren’t as good as working with RAW files simply because the original file isn’t as good. Yes, CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT can work with many RAW formats. The downside is they are painfully slow when compared with AfterShot Pro. There are also a lot more adjustments and features in AfterShot Pro. If you care about getting the most from your photos, this is definitely a program you want to have in your arsenal. I have been using it for more than four years (first as Bibble Pro, now as AfterShot Pro) and love it!

Now, on to the news. The first service pack for AfterShot Pro is available. It adds support for a number of new cameras as well as new and improved features. I have included all of the details provided by Corel below.


  • Improved Highlight Recovery processing
  • Two new plugins: Equalizer, for added color correction, and Nostalgia, for black-and-white and color film simulation
  • Increased the maximum supported JPEG or TIFF image size from 30 megapixels to 40 megapixels
  • Improved plugin SDK to support more plugins that include features like geo-tagging

Additional Camera RAW Support for:

  • Canon PowerShot G1 X
  • Canon PowerShot S100
  • Canon 5D Mark III
  • Fuji X100
  • Leica V-LUX 3
  • Nikon D4
  • Nikon D800
  • Nikon D800e
  • Panasonic GX1
  • Panasonic FZ150
  • Pentax K-01
  • Samsung NX200
  • Samsung NX100
  • Samsung NX5
  • Samsung NX10
  • Samsung NX11
  • Sony NEX-C3
  • Sony A35
  • Sony A57

Issues Addressed

  • A one-pixel wide or tall image artifact that appeared through the center of some images
  • Localization issues
  • Instability when removing Heal/Clone layers
  • Demosaicing — stability and processing time
  • Fedora Linux installation and run issues
  • Output issue that prevented images from being converted to the correct color space
  • No Label — fixed menu bar issue

    How about metric print? In fact metric everything. Did you not know the US and the rest of the world has been officially metric for years (Sorry, the US is officially a metric country). No wonder Americans don’t understand metrics their software is at least 10 years out of date.
    That means the rest of the world has to suffer because of backward Americans. You don’t seem to realise that there are fewer Americans than Europeans, so why go with the minority, not maximising sales is it.
