Does Aftershot 3 support pspimage files?
If PaintShop only saves layers in pspimage, AfterShot is of limited value to those of us who always use layers.

APS is a raw-converter - it does not support native Paint-Shop, Photoshop or Gimp Files (with layersupport). Its the same with e.g. lightroom or other raw converters.
ASP should be the first step - most of the time there should be no need to use further editing - if there is the need to do so you con export as 16 bit tiff and edit with Raint-Shop Pro (or another external editor you want to use)

I use a raw-converter to create and, to some small extent, edit TIFF files. From there I can open it in Painter, PaintShop, AfterShot, Photoshop, Lightroom or Qimage. I never use native file types as TIFF is a no fuss format for me. After using the most appropriate programs, I can send the layered TIFFs back to Qimage for printing with specific paper-printer profiles. I can't do that with pspimage files. If a layer change is required, I simply open the TIFF, alter the layer and save it again. I was hoping to replace Photoshop and Lightroom. The only thing keeping me from doing that is the pspimage file limitation.

I am not sure, but I think I understand your special needs - you have many old layered files that you want to reedit.
I have worked with photoshop, gimp (still working - but very seldom),eclipse , photivo (raw), pixeluvo, neat-image, noise-ninja (only noise reduction), photoprint (on linux) and Qimage (only for special prints on windows).
99 % ASP - don't need the other things - sometimes eclipse (for special compositings). I know it could and should be better, but after all nowadays its still the best choice (for me)
The main ting for a raw converter is to use it with raw file straight from the camera. 16 bit tiff are also fine but its not the original ...

They aren’t old files for me, layers are a major feature of the program. I practically always use layers. I just watched a video with Bob Taylor on using PaintShop on the Corel site and he recommends using layers as well - https://learn.corel.com/tutorials/using ... ro-part-1/.
Opening an old file in a raw-converter to make some small tweak is a bit of a lazy shortcut. But I do it.

As always, thanks.
