As we continue our efforts to improve ON1 Photo 10, we are excited to announce another update. Version 10.0.2, a free update, is now available for download. If you have “Check for Update on Launch” turned on in ON1 Photo 10’s Preferences, you should get a message the next time you launch the app. (“Check for Updates” is also available via the Help menu, if you prefer to check manually)
Version 10.0.2 is a maintenance release which solves over 80 issues. As we continue with our dedication to improve stability, this update addresses crashes, brush performance, and some user interface touch ups. On the horizon is another more significant update to bring back the beloved Perfect Resize. We hope to have this available before the end of this year.

Today, we released Version 10.0.1 of ON1 Photo, which fixes a number of bugs and crashes, chiefly in Browse and Portrait. If you have “Check for Update on Launch” turned on in ON1 Photo 10’s Preferences, you should get a message the next time you launch the app. (“Check for Updates” is also available via the Help menu, if you prefer to check manually.)
Version 10.0.1 is solely a bug-fix release. But as we look ahead to future releases, know that we will continue to add and refine features to ON1 Photo 10. One of things we are working on is the return of the Resize module. Over the past few weeks, we have heard loud and clear from long-time Perfect Resize customers that they were unhappy with the decision to move Resize out of Photo 10 in place of the new Export module. (Perfect Resize is included with Photo 10 as a standalone app as an optional install.) We believe that Export is a good solution for many photographers, but we will also make sure that Resize is a fully equal citizen inside Photo 10.

Portland, OR – September 8, 2015 – ON1, Inc. announced ON1 Photo 10, the next generation of its photo editing and effects app for Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows, is available for purchase or download for those that pre-ordered. Version 10 is a ground-up rework of Perfect Photo Suite 9, optimized for performance, stability and ease of use. Up to 4x faster than the previous version and requiring less memory to run, ON1 Photo 10 also includes an integrated mobile workflow, a modern user interface, and the essential ON1 photo editing tools photographers have come to love.
A significantly improved Effects module. Filters respond faster than ever before and presets are easier to find and apply. New preset categories have been added for popular photography genres, and include settings for color grading and haze reduction. The Perfect B&W module has been fully integrated into Effects, which lets you apply any filter—including the popular Dynamic Contrast effect—to your monochrome images. Lastly, you now have complete control over the organization of your presets and preset categories, making it easy to customize Effects to work the way you want.
Two-way syncing of photos between ON1 Photo 10 and mobile devices with our free Photo Via app for IOS. Photo Via lets you share albums, smart albums and folders of photos between your desktop and your iPad or iPhone using Dropbox or Google Drive. With Photo Via, you can search, rate and share photos easily from any iOS device, and have the metadata synced back to your desktop.
Better and faster workflow tools for working with faces in the Portrait module. Find facial features quicker, even with side views or faces at an angle. Portrait is faster and better than ever. The new way of working with facial features makes it easier to retouch the areas you care about.
Access to Resize from any module, which lets you use the photo enlargement features of Perfect Resize from any part of ON1 Photo 10. Sharpen, add a watermark, or create a gallery wrap when you want, without jumping to a different module.
Color and tone controls that make sense. Use Enhance’s exposure adjustments, better color controls, and improved highlight and shadow recovery to make your photos pop before taking them into other editing modules.
Browse’s new Smart Albums feature, which lets you put your most important photos—wherever they are—at your fingertips. You can even automatically publish your Smart Albums to your mobile device with Photo Via.
A new export feature, which automates the process of creating photos for printing and sharing. Take a single photo, or a group of photos, and create whatever size and file format you need. Combined with our improved batch processing options, we make it simple for you to print, share and manage your photos without undue complexity.
Throughout ON1 Photo 10, you will find an improved user experience, with more responsive sliders, tools that won’t stick, and a user interface that is snappy, modern and easier to use. Most of ON1 Photo 10’s image processing algorithms utilize modern video cards (GPUs), providing better overall performance, a new sharing feature for posting photos directly to Facebook®, Twitter®, Messages®, Mail®, Flickr® and more.

I hope you are excited to get started using ON1 Photo 10. Sometimes opening new applications can be overwhelming so I wrote up these 10 time-Saving tips.
Use keyboard shortcuts — This is my number one tip for a reason. Photo 10 has tons of keyboard shortcuts to make things faster, so familiarize yourself right away. For example, I use the Perfect Brush all day long. I can turn this feature on/off using a keyboard shortcut. To access keyboard shortcuts, use (Mac) ⌘⇧K or (Win) Ctrl+Shift+K, or go to Help > Show Keyboard Shortcuts to open the floating palette.
Auto Advance — After a shoot I have hundreds, if not thousands of photos to go through. I like to pick my favorites and get rid of the bad ones as fast as possible. In Browse, hit the Tab key to hide the left and right drawers, then go to Photo View (Shortcut – tap the “E” key OR go to the View menu > View Mode > Photo View). This gives me a huge fullscreen preview of each photo. Then turn on Auto Advance (go to the Photo menu > Auto Advance). this way, each time I use the Like (P) or Dislike (X) keys it automatically moves to the next photo. I can work my way through 30-40 photos a minute using this method. (click to view larger)
Smart Albums for workflow states — Once finished sorting and culling a shoot I move the photos into a Favorite (or watched folder). Then, create Smart Albums based on keywords to drive my workflow. For example, I would create a Smart Album called Needs Retouching and Ready for Lab, each triggered off the keyword “retouch” and “lab”. When I click on my Needs Retouching folder I then have a to-do list for all the photos needing to be retouched. Once I’m done retouching and I’m ready to send to the lab, I change the keyword from retouch to lab and it moves in my workflow. (click to view larger)
Perfect Mask & Refine Brush duo — Like I mentioned above, I use the Perfect Brush a lot. However, in the tough areas like tree branches or hair it may not be enough. In those cases, use the Refine Brush to go over the tough spots to finish it fast. The Perfect Brush followed by the Refine Brush is a powerful one-two masking team.
