A Letter from ON1 President, Craig Keudell
I hope you’re enjoying spring and are able to find time to get out shooting during one of my favorite seasons. I can honestly say, there has never been a more exciting time here at ON1.
Where to start…
We’ve been hard at work for several months improving ON1 Photo 10, and user feedback has been tremendous in helping us improve a great product. With your help, we released version 10.5 last week, a free update for every ON1 Photo 10 owner. To get the 10.5 update, just open Photo 10 and it will prompt you to download, or you can get it here. ON1 Photo 10.5 has improvements in many areas including; selectively applying effects, masking, Google® Nik plug-in integration, and some really cool built-in borders and textures plus over 1,000 more you can download here for free.
Last week we made the biggest announcement in our company history, ON1 Photo RAW. ON1 Photo RAW is the next generation of ON1 Photo and will be the first all-new raw processor and non-destructive photo editor released in years. Photo RAW has been in development for several years and features a whole NEW state-of-the-art raw processing engine. We want Photo RAW to be the world’s fastest, most flexible, and easiest-to-use raw processor and photo editor on the market when it is released this fall. We can reach our goal with your help. I encourage each and every one you to join our online discussions as we approach the fall release. We have tons of online resources, FAQ’s, and daily discussions happening. You can find out more on the web page or check out the Photo RAW Q&A here (more recently, here).
If you aren’t an ON1 Plus Pro Member, now is the time to join. Plus Pro Members will be the first to get ON1 Photo RAW (Available Fall 2016) as part of their yearly membership. Also remember that ON1 Plus Pro Members get perpetual software licenses for the app, which never expire. If memberships or subscriptions are not your thing, no problem, ON1 Photo RAW will be available for purchase by itself as well. We will be sending a special Photo RAW upgrade offer to existing ON1 customers this summer.
Lastly, we are working to bring you more training video courses covering Photoshop®, Lightroom®, and ON1 at no additional cost. Matt Kloskowski, our in-house expert educator, has created a ton of great photography video training content that we hope to have available for you in the coming weeks.
From everyone at ON1, thank you for being a part of our community. Be safe and enjoy this wonderful spring season!
Craig Keudell, President
