    Aftershot Pro formerly known as Bibble

    Its on sale at the moment and was such a good deal i thought i would take a chance and buy it ( i trialled it some time ago but too brief to get comfortable with it)

    Main impression its FAST previews are unbelievably fast.

    Any adjustments are very quick as well

    Some features of LR are missing but many free plugins are available that fill in most of the missing bits,there are layers that can be used all of which is non destructive.

    Its early days for me and have not done detailed comparisons of the output yet.

    Its quite easy to pick up and use (i found) and within a couple of days i'am starting to get familiar with it ( but proficient will take longer)

    It's Multi platform W/Mac/Linux

    Would be interested to hear other peoples views on ASP

    You know Aftershot used to be Bibble, right? I'd bet Corel snapped up Bibble Labs for next to nothing, and Bibble, as a company began to backslide ~4 years ago. I was a customer who purchased Bibble Pro 4 with the promise of an impending free update to Version 5. That promise was dragged out for well over 2 years, and while competitors continued to release new and improved products, Bibble left its customers holding the bag, not even offering updates to Bibble 4. When Bibble 5 finally arrived, it was buggy and largely unusable for much of its first year, and while it offered many new features, version 5 suffered the same inadequacies in image quality that version 4 had. LR, C1, and Aperture all easily surpass Bibble (Aftershot) in image quality, and you should chose among those based upon your preferences based on the interface and features offered. I've recently trialed the newest version of Afershot, and it surely offers no improvements I'm able to see. It's still a flawed 3+ year old product, with only a new name.
