The assortment of graphic adjustment functions also includes color correction, cropping and straightening options, lens correction, noise and red eyes removal.

Photo organizer with support for a variety of formats
Thanks to its integrates metadata reader and photo organizing capabilities, Corel AfterShot can also be used to categorize, rate and manage a large image collection. Pictures can be easily sorted by various criteria, such as relevant keywords, tags or rating and included in different catalogs.
