    Default Corel Releases Professional Linux Photo Software

    Phoronix: Corel Releases Professional Linux Photo Software

    If the GIMP isn't cutting it for your photo needs or running Adobe Photoshop Lightroom within Wine isn't working out, Corel has released professional-grade photo software for Linux...

    They don't list PNG or BMP as supported formats so I asked them about it..

    [Henry] Hello, my name is Henry. Welcome to Corel Customer Service.

    [Me] Does Aftershot Pro support saving in PNG or BMP?

    [Henry] the answer to your question is Yes
    Looks like I'll definitely be giving this software a try!

    Where "professional" means "we haven't really found out what 64 bit is yet", like Skype. And it doesn't know Fuji's .RAF format. At least manually extracting the .deb and installing that way works.

    It installs and runs fine here on Ubuntu 11.10 amd64. Looks like it's hw accelerated cause the effects look snappy. And oh, there _is_ a 64 bit deb package.
    Here's a screenshot of the 30 day trial:

    @ChrisXY
    There's tons of "proffesional" software that is 32 bits, among them lots of AAA games that are still 32 bit etc. "deb and rpm" isn't weak, it's plenty considering they released it for like 1.5% market share. If Linux had like 20-50% share then that would be another story with a valid complaint.

    Default Bibble 5 Pro -> Corel Aftershot Pro

    "Corel rereleases Bibble Pro 5 as Corel Aftershot Pro" could be a better title for the article.

    Big News from Bibble Labs

    First I was like "??"
    http://www.corel.com/akdlm/6763/down...tPro_amd64.deb

    Then I was like "lol": /opt/AfterShotPro/bin/AfterShotPro: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.32, BuildID[sha1]=0x3199890976322b0bb32efd84a219d424d15c8788, stripped

    I guess stuff like "libkodakcms.so" would be only available for 32 bit... From a quick google search it seems to be available only in "bibble5", so I downloaded that too ("64 bit version") and what did I see:
    Code:
    libkodakcms.so: ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, BuildID[sha1]=0xb6e8810491fea64a084db55d69236d4ccd88298a, not stripped
    Is it just me or does really so much of this "professional" software STILL IN 2012 !!! live in 32 bit land? What if you are actually trying to do some serious work that would require you to load more than 4 gb in ram? Can't you do that stuff in "professional" software?

    Well, only deb and rpm is weak anyway.

    Or how about... Where "professional" means we didn't put in any red-eye removal because real professionals don't need it? (See the PC Mag review of this software),

    My 6 year old laptop makes me glad they support 32-bit. Other than that, I agree 100%.

    Problem is, it really doesn't appear to have anything that GIMP doesn't have other than some fancy "Ninja" grain removal tool. I haven't used the software yet though, so I really can't comment.. For $99 though, I think it's a tough sell. If they threw in red-eye removal I'd be more interested.

    Regards
    All the windows tripping over each other on a small screen, perhaps? That's my #1 gripe, I've heard there are branches of GIMP that look more like photoshop, but I haven't tried them as I don't think my distro packs them.

    Agreed... Although I really wish they would take that awesome motion blur correction tool that Adobe demoed but hasn't released yet, and then shove it in their product.. THAT I would buy since it's something that no other software can do, but Adobe would never release photoshop for Linux... Then again, Corel would probably claim that it's not for their professional product because "real" professionals always use tripods and don't need motion correction... lol

    But overall, I'm glad to see this product.. Doubt I'll buy it now that I know it doesn't have red-eye removal (still need GIMP) but I'll definitely try it out.

    For the installation of this programm is /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 `GLIXX_BC3.4.15' necessary. Because of this, it seems to be quite complicated to use it under CentOS 6. If I enter
    Code:
    strings /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 | grep GLIBC
    on CentOS 6.2 it lists support for versions up to 3.4.13. I don't want to waste several hours just to solve this issue. Maybe I will try it on Fedora later.
