Corel has updated its Raw photo manager, AfterShot Pro, now at version 2. This uses 64-bit processing, which Corel says makes it 30 percent faster than the previous version. There’s support for more cameras and Raw formats, a newly designed interface, plus improved batch processing and a new red eye removal tool.
The Windows version also includes tools for combining images to create with HDR pictures, which will be added later to the Mac and Linux versions. It costs £57.99 including VAT.
In addition, Corel UK will be holding a series of tailored CorelDraw Graphics Suite X7 training sessions aimed at sign-making and engraving professionals. The classes will be limited to eight people per session and will take place at Corel’s European Headquarters in Maidenhead in June. Attendance is £300 per person, including VAT, refreshments and lunch. Spaces can be booked on the Corel website by visiting www.corel.com/coreldrawtraining.
