Soft Proofing is a new feature in ON1 Photo RAW 2018.1 – coming soon. Soft proofing is the ability to view a simulation of how your image will look when printed based on specific printer and paper profiles. This new feature coming to ON1 Photo RAW 2018.1 will allow you to simulate what your photos look like when they are printed on certain types of paper.
Black & White tones are great for creating a beautiful seascape photo. A powerful tool in ON1 Photo RAW 2018 allows for greater control and creativity in your photo editing. Specifically, Luminosity Masks allow you to selectively edit and apply effects to just the tones you want. If it sounds complex it REALLY isn’t. In fact, this technique will help your photo editing workflow become faster and more efficient. This works particularly well when editing landscape photos (or seascapes such as this one), and is perfect for enhancing a boring sky.
It’s never been faster to get your photos from your camera into ON1 Photo RAW 2018. A new feature coming soon in the ON1 Photo RAW 2018.1 update, Smart Import, will allow you to download, back-up, rename and add metadata and photo settings all in one step. Smart Import will detect any camera or memory card that you have connected to your computer and allow you to copy them to your computer (import them) into ON1 Photo RAW 2018.
There are a few different ways to add interest to a dull sky without having to completely replace the sky when it comes to photo editing. A quick and easy way is to use the the tone enhancer in ON1 Photo RAW 2018. It’s one method that works extremely well. If you’ve ever had a photo where you have a great foreground and subject, but the sky just doesn’t quite make the cut this is perfect. Remember, it’s not always necessary to replace the entire sky.
