Book Description

DSLRs and other digital cameras have the potential to create stunning images. However, to get the most out of them, it is necessary to use the RAW sensor data and to develop it yourself. When done correctly, the image quality is usually better than that of an in-camera jpeg. On the other hand, one has to have the knowledge to develop these RAW files.

"Aftershot Pro: Non-destructive photo editing and management" is a practical hands-on guide that will show you how to develop the RAW sensor data of your camera into images. At the same time it will allow you to create a workflow that matches your creativity and the design of an image editing application.

This book shows you how to work with AfterShot Pro to get great images out of your photos. You will get clear explanations and lots of tips to achieve professional results by first using basic and then advanced editing features.

You will also learn to configure the application to your workflow by setting up keyboard mappings, changing the user interface, and most importantly by setting up batch processes that will help you save time for the creative part of editing while you leave the menial tasks to the computer.

Additionally, you will learn how to manage your digital assets by using AfterShot Pro catalogs. If you want to take advantage of modern, non-destructive photo editing then this book is for you.
