In The Desert

As we all know there are a lot of software programs available for us to correct photos taken in the desert. Some are free, some very expensive. A few work really well, some are not user friendly. Here are a few reasons we use Corel's Software.
They have continued to use the same workspace interface. Some programs change them constantly making you feel like you have to completely relearn the program from the beginning.
They have also made it very easy to use all the features and options available in their programs. And they have continually updated and upgraded the program's ability to work flawlessly and quickly. Like the NEW 64 bit programs that take full advantage of your computers processing power. Multiple images and videos load faster and the program works faster with their new technology.
In today's economy cost is a factor to some people. Corel has kept the cost of their programs more than reasonable without skimping on features. I don't care what you're using now, if you tried their software, you'd never go back. It's designed the way all software should be designed, with "user friendly" one of their top considerations. Their programmers have access to real life photographers who help with the programming.
There isn't a software available today that can do more, and in most cases not as much, as Corel's. And they can't do it as fast and as easy. Easy being a key word here. Beginner or professional, this is just the best there is.

Previous Version Reviews
If you work on a lot of "RAW" images that you've taken with your digital camera then here is the answer to speed things up. No program available today can work with the speed and accuracy of AfterShot Pro 2. Load more images and batch process them with ease and speed. See our review for more.
With the same interface as previous versions, plus new features, this program is ready for a beginner or a professional to correct and enhance their photographs. We're reviewing the 64 bit version because of the enhanced speed and flexibility of this software. It also comes with a 32 bit version for older computers.
The Ultimate version is packed with handy extras to enhance your video work. The workflow is still enhanced with the use of a "proxy" to speed up your compilation. See the review for a list of all the extras you get in the Ultimate edition. This makes compiling a video a fun and easy task with professional features. Many new time saving features have been added. And it's really easy to use!
If you are still using one of these earlier versions these reviews of previous versions may be of interest to you. The newer versions listed above have more features and are updated to give you more speed with your processing. The YouTube video below has over 5,000 views and still represents the basic process used in this program.
Photo Impact X3 is still available and is a great program for text and graphics insertion in your photos. Save $40 on Corel PhotoImpact X3. Was
