I work smarter, not harder, with AI photo culling software AfterShoot

Photography is an art form that captures the best moments and tells the stories most beautiful stories but every shoot requires you to select the best images.  Every photographer has experienced the painstaking process of sifting through hundreds if not thousands of photographs which is time-consuming and boring. You find yourself going back and forth between the same images time and time again which is why AI culling software Aftershoot is well and truly a godsend. 

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have my doubts when I first downloaded Aftershoot. I'm a control freak through and through so the idea of letting software powered by AI decide my best photos for me didn’t sit well. Sometimes, the photos I like the most are the ones that catch someone a little off guard and aren’t perhaps the stereotypical “best photos” but Aftershoot did a surprisingly good job of selecting the ones I would choose myself thanks to a range of customizable parameters.
