    I would use the present perfect because 'saw' does not agree with 'will check'.

    Only "After you've seen it, I'll check it again" is correct.

    How come is the below one correct?

    "After you clarify it, I'll see it again"

    Shouldn't it be "After you've clarified it, I'll see it again"?

    Thank you.

    Both the simple present and the present perfect are correct because both can refer to the future.

    Am I wrong in thinking on the lines that 'after' means it's over. So, it should not be followed by simple present tense.

    Please explain.

    Re: "After you saw it, I'll check it again" or "After you've seen it, I'll check it a

    'THE SIMPLE PRESENT TENSE IS USED:
    To express future time, after some conjunctions: after, when, before, as soon as, until.' ── quoted from http://www.ef.com/english-resources/...present-tense/

    For example, I will go to bed after I make this post.

    Thank you. When I examine my sentences carefully, I get all these doubts.
