Color Our Future

Posted on April 28, 2015 by Dan Harlacher - 12 Comments

We are hard at work on the next generation of our products. One of our goals is it update and modernize the user interface and user experience. Part of that process is to update the look and feel of common controls like buttons, sliders, etc. We are considering adding an accent color for the first time. The accent color makes it easier to see what is selected and when something is on or off. Below are two accent color options, plus the silver that we currently use. Tell us what you think!

Today, Adobe announced the latest release of Lightroom, also known as Lightroom CC and branded Lightroom 6 for non subscribers. Please make sure you are on the current version of on1 in order to have compatibility with this release. All version 9 owners get a free update to version 9.5 which has Lightroom CC/6 compatibility.

If you’ve updated your version of Lightroom and don’t see your on1 installed, please download the full installer here and it will load into Lightroom CC/6. That’s it!

iCloud changes & on1 Perfect Browse

Posted on April 17, 2015 by Nathan Keudell - 3 Comments

Beginning with Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 and iOS 8.3, Apple introduced Photos, a new application to replace iPhoto and Aperture. Along with the Photos app comes iCloud Photo Library which stores your photos differently than it did in the past. Unfortunately the iCloud Photo Library is not supported in Perfect Photo Suite 9.5 or Perfect Browse 9.5 at this time. The iCloud Photo Stream source in Browse will continue to work for users of earlier Mac OS X operating systems.

Release Notes

We take user feedback seriously. Our team has worked hard the past several months to improve performance and user experience in the latest release of our photo-editing app – Perfect Photo Suite. In this latest release, version 9.5, we’ve improved performance and usability for customers in several areas which include; browsing photos, portrait retouching, processing speed, feature additions, and enhancements.

Browsing photos is one of the key improvements and one of the most important tasks for photographers. Today, photographers use Perfect Browse as a front end to their workflow with other programs like Adobe® Lightroom® and Photoshop®.

The biggest reason to adopt this workflow is speed. Browsing photos must be fast, period. Improved speed in viewing photos assists in organizing photo libraries and helps determine what photos you want to work on. Specifically, the ability to view large Raw files in detail can take forever with some apps. Not with Perfect Browse. Users will see up to a 50% increase in speed with the latest version. Quickly seeing all the detail in photos without pixilation allows for faster culling, sorting, and rating. Then send your photos with the ratings intact to Lightroom or other applications, faster than ever before.

We’ve also added new features to Perfect Browse, which makes it a great standalone option for getting organized. on1 Albums allow you to create a collection of your favorite photos and provide a fast way to view them without searching. Want to drag and drop photos into an album? It’s simple to do right in Perfect Browse. Select the photos you want to add to the album and drag them to the Album Hot Spot. Photos in an on1 album can live anywhere, whether in the cloud or on your computer.

Faster Retouching and Effects
Another area we’ve focused on is improved speed and performance for portrait retouching and filters in Perfect Effects. Perfect Portrait is now faster than ever for auto face detection, and finding the details of the face, eyes, lips, and mouth. With easier to adjust control points and smoother sliders it makes for much quicker portrait edits. Many of the filters in Perfect Effects have been updated to use the computer GPU to make them much faster.

New Features
In addition to all the performance enhancements, Perfect Photo Suite 9.5 also has some great new features. The Line Mask tool allows you to create a straight path for masking sharp edges where brushing is difficult. Luminosity Masks have also been added for users to work on the luminance values or lighter and darker parts of a photo based on a specific selection.
