In-stock now: Corel Aftershot PRO 3 for $80 [or $60 Upgrade]

The brand new version of Corel’s flagship AfterShot PRO software, version 3, is now available for purchase for $80 Full Version and $60 Upgrade at the Corel website.

If you are curious, they offer free trials of the software for Windows, Mac, Linux RPM and Linux Debian.

If you are curious about the software without even touching it, they have a 230-page PDF User Guide available for all to read.

NOTE: when you add the software to the shopping cart, they automatically add an $8 “download insurance” thing. You can remove it from the shopping cart if you don’t want it. It’s a bad practice for them to do this in the cloud era, but compared to Adobe’s practices, this is small change 🙂

AfterShot 2 Standard for $10 (digital download)

The non-PRO version of Corel’s latest AfterShot 2 software (aka the “Standard” edition) is available for $10 as a digital download for PC or Mac or Linux at Stacksocial. They only carry the non-PRO version.

It is available in either the brown G9X or the black G9X.

The extra shipping fee translates to the Corel software bundle that includes AfterShot PRO 2 and Paintshop X8 PRO (and a few other non-imaging titles), along with a 58-inch Takama tripod with 3-way head, a Lowepro pouch, a 32GB Lexar card, and the obligatory cleaning kit.
