RAW Photo Editing with Corel AfterShot Pro for Linux

Filed under
Software

Corel, once a software giant bent on overtaking Microsoft with it's own Corel LinuxOS and Corel WordPerfect products, has just released Corel AfterShot Pro 1.1 for Linux (and the other two big OSes).

AfterShot Pro uses OpenCL for the near-real-time rendering of colour adjustments and the like. While AfterShot Pro works to manipulate your JPeg (.jpg) images, it's real power lies in how well (and quickly) it can manipulate a variety of RAW photo formats, including those taken by my Nikon D5100, the RAW photograph .nfp files.

openSUSE Tumbleweed: A Linux distribution on the leading edge

So, to summarize: openSUSE Tumbleweed is a good, solid, stable Linux distribution with a wide range of desktops available. It is not anything particularly exotic or unstable, and it does not require an unusual amount of Linux expertise to install and use on an everyday system. To make a very simple comparison, in my experience installing and using Tumbleweed is much less difficult and much less risky than using the Debian "testing" distribution, and it is kept much (much much) more up to date than openSUSE Leap, Debian "stable", Linux Mint or Ubuntu. I don't say that to demean any of those other distributions. As I said at the end of my recent post about point-release vs. rolling-release distributions, if your hardware is fully supported by one of those point-release distributions, and you are satisfied with the applications included in them, then they are certainly a good choice. But if you like staying on the leading edge, or if you have very new hardware which requires the latest Linux kernel and drivers, or you just want/need the latest version of some application (in my case this would be digiKam), then openSuSE could be just what you want.
