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.

Joachim Ziebs

Joachim Ziebs teaches Computer Science, English, and History at a German abendrealschule (a night school). When he was fifteen, he was given an old camera. He was hooked on photography immediately and was seldom seen without his camera. Later he bought his first computer, a Commodore C64, and another passion ensued. Strangely, however, the author decided to study English, History, and Philosophy after he finished school. After graduating with an MA, he found work as a Computer and Network Administrator and Software Trainer with a small start-up software company, where his passion for teaching awakened. Following this calling, he quit his job to become a teacher. This is his first book.
