File system mode
File System mode lets you access and edit uncataloged photos. It is a quick way to access any supported image file on your computer, without needing to import images into a catalog. It's a good way to access photos that you may not keep, but when you don't import photos, you'll miss out on some features that are only possible when working on images in a Corel AfterShot Pro catalog. If you start working with photos in File System mode, you have the option of importing the photos to a Library catalog later.
