What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I need to be able to explore my photos directly then compare, label, rate and filter them without the complications and the time waste of importing and cataloging process.
it's necessary to me to have the full control over colors starting from the proper color management and camera profiling tools ending with color manipulation correcting tools to get the most accurate and beautiful colors from my RAWs.
I have realized that Corel AfterShot pro is the fastest RAW converter available in the market, It have the best balance between workflow Speed/Efficiency. it just needs some serious care over stability issues and a little more tuning over lens correction and noise reduction tools.
