From Bibble to AfterShot Pro

Post by WilsonC »

Anybody else see this? Interesting.... 8) Corel buys Bibble and releases it as AfterShot Pro.

(I mean, c'mon. Proprietary junk is killing the industry...)
I'd say that if Bibble was purchased by Corel there may be a chance that it may make it's way to PSP in some form or another. So there's a chance it has something to do with PSP. Then again, maybe not.

Gez, some people really are touchy. If a moderator feels this post is in the wrong forum then he/she can move it. Easy enough.

Very selfish and short sighted to say that it's of no interest to us PSP users.

I've been using Bibble and PSP together for somtime now. Of course I'm interested. Interested to see if the great features of Bibble and PSP are blended together to stick it up Adobe and ACR. May be a master stroke by Corel.

But then maybe I'm the only one on this forum who is interested in this possibility so I'll pull my head in. :shock: Just imagine PSP with a great RAW application that works hand in hand with PSP. Oh there I go again. I forgot. No one is interested in that possibility are they?

Ranting. Sorry.

I find it interesting as a PSP user. The fact that Corel bought out Bibble and hired all their staff could have several implications for PSP.....or Corel photo manipulators. An integration of the two programs is possible, getting some of the higher end features of Bibble into PSP is possible or discontinuing PSP for a Bibble like product which integrates some of the PSP stuff seem likely. I doubt Corel is just trying to buy off competition and it seems unlikely they would field two competing products. For me, it will be interesting to see what happens. Thanks to the OP for the info.

I find this posting and article of interest, as a user of PSP and of other Corel products.
After the event we may describe it as a shot in the dark but I believe Corel must intend to integrate products.
Note that Bibble 5.2.3 provides "Open in External Editor command"...

From what I've read, the "Official" announcement may occur sometime next week.

JStanley, perhaps this thread will end up in an "AfterShot Pro" forum? :D

I hope that Corel does a better job than Bibble in making a usable interface. IMHO, Bibble (which I tried briefly when my camera's RAW files were not supported by anyone else) had the most unintuitive workflow of any program I can imagine. Perhaps once people got used to it.... but for me, it was a nightmare. As soon as PSP added RAW support for my camera, I dropped Bibble.

Perhaps you should change your first posting subject to "Bibble and AfterShot" in the meantime :?:

I've been testing various RAW editors/converters and that is how I came across this Bibble/Corel news. I have always used DPP to handle my files, and then edit in Photoshop....and more recently PSPx4. In my tests PSPx4 has actually come up with better conversions than DPP (although softer, since there is no sharpening applied...correct?)! Which was surprising to me.

PSPx4's RAW conversion seems very basic. The question I have is, is there a benefit to creating a "perfect" RAW conversion in a more robust RAW converter over using a basic RAW conversion to 16-bit Tiff that needs more edits in PSP?
