    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.

    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.

    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:

    using with Nvidia gtx 560ti with nvidia drivers


    @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.

    But it just contains the 32 bit version anyway. The download page mentions the need for 32 bit compatibility libraries though, like the CPU requirements and supported formats (well, assuming that extension = format).

    Games often don't need as much memory (Well, some would...), but "professional" image editors? Are they not supposed to also process huge images where you could easily max out 4GB?
