AfterShoot is the perfect tool for anyone looking to speed up their post-production workflow. In the video, Taylor shows us how he uses AfterShoot to cull his wedding photos and how using AfterShoot paid for itself in one wedding.
AfterShoot as a Better Starting Point
One of the things that Taylor talked about in the video is that when you use AfterShoot to cull your photos, you're immediately at a better starting point when you need to either edit the images yourself or send them to an outside editor.
Reducing the number of photos you have to deal with saves a ton of time and money! It doesn't matter if you are a careful or a prolific shooter; you no doubt "edit out" a good portion of your images that are not up to your standards, are blinks, blurs, or duplicates. AfterShoot handles all of that for you, so by the time you need to edit, you're not mentally exhausted just by the amount of time it took to cull the photos.

AfterShoot Helps You Save Money on Outsourcing Wedding Editing
Having a good culling and workflow solution like AfterShoot also helps you save money on outsourcing wedding editing.
When you send fewer photos to an editor, not only are you saving on the cost of the edit, but you're also reducing the amount of time that it takes for the editor to get your photos back to you.
It's a win-win all around!
AfterShoot Uses the Power of AI to "Learn" Your Photo Preferences
What makes AfterShoot so unique is that it uses the power of Artificial Intelligence to "learn" your photo preferences.
If you find that an image didn't make the cull that you would have kept, all you need to do is move it back into the final selection to teach AfterShoot what your style of shooting is. Over time, it gets better and better at knowing which photos you like, making your post-production workflow even faster!
