A Look Ahead in ON1 Plus

Hi everyone! Back in July, we had this great Best of ON1 Plus in 2017 First Half recap. Since July we’ve had even more great stuff, including Matt’s Long Exposure Course in July and Blake’s incredible series on Artistry in ON1 Photo RAW. Along with all that we’ve had monthly photo critiques, multiple contests and challenges. Enough of the past, it’s time to look ahead at what’s on deck for the future for Plus.

    I am in a hurry to see the courses about black and white and wildlife retouching.

    When possible, can you please add zone system to black and white filter (even for color it is useful-see blake ZS) ? many people voted for it since it disappeared from perfect b&w plugin.

    best regards

    ON1 is awesome and ON1Plus is even better. I thought I knew a lot but I have learned so much in the past year and a half it is unreally. Little things that make a BIG difference. Looking forward to the next year. Glenn

    All sounds great. Only been with On1 for 6 months and am finding I use it most of the time now. All subjects listed are of interest to me so can’t wait for it all to start. Thanks for the great opportunities On1 provides.

    Must say that On1 is taking me to the next level.
    Post processing was not a strong point on mine but On1 is really getting me going. I’m almost off LR at this point (a serious objective of mine). I use LR (with the Mogrify plugin) to make borders and watermarks. I’m not up to speed with Resize yet so not sure how it compares with Mogrify/LR?

    Thanks to ON1 for the awesome software you produce. Sometime ago I moved over to Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. However I kept an eye on the changes in the ON1 software and recently made a decision to return and exit Adobe (boy do they fight to keep you). I am in awe of how much the On1 software has improved and I have to say I don’t miss Adobe. My plan is to lean learn learn and make use of the power of ON1. Keep it up ON1.
    Thanks, Clive (New Zealand based).

      Thank you for the kind words Clive, I will pass this along to other members of the team.

      My exact sediments….
      I’ve been a Lightroom/Photoshop user since LM Ver 1. I also tried using Capture. But that was hard to grasp some of the concepts and the learning curve was very high. Needles to say, I dropped it and went back to LM. Then came along ON1. I’ve always been a sucker for new things and decided to give it try. Lots apprehension at first, so I held back and watched, played, watched some more and made comparisons. The more I played, things began to get simpler and my results were getting better. I began to feel as though I was once again in control of how I wanted to have my pictures look. ON1 has done an amazing job with their software and has provided some fantastic tools to allow photographers make their photos a work of art.

    Been a plus member since the first available date, software user since the initial version. I need to be more involved in the Plus community but can’t seem to find the time to log in and participate. Keep moving forward and getting better. OnOne is my “go to” software for post processing. Thanks to all at OnOne for what they provide to photographers.

    It just gets better and better, and all of the educational material is a tremendous plus. I’m really looking forward to the B&W course, especially since Silver Efex is on its last legs.

    One thing i would love to see in On1 is the dehaze filter from Lightroom as thats the only thing missing from On1, I fell that once that is included then it will be the all round best photo dating software there could be and Adobe would be way behind On1, if there is a way to incorporate or a similar filter already in On1 then i would love to know how to execute it

    In that Fine Art course, it will be interesting how you can pull it off unless you have added Camera Sensor Profiles to your Color Management. You need to make use of the Color Checker Passport or equivalent in your workflow.

    Hi Jim, I really like the way you work your images. Everything you do to your photos is well explained and easy to understand. Keep up feeding us with these nice education video, much appreciated.

    Hello Nathan,

    I can’t find this Black and White Photography course by Dan Harlacher. Was it released? Where is it? Thanks in advance for your help.

      Hey Patrick,

      Production is almost finished, the course should be released sometime this week. Thanks for your patience.

    I am new (as of early December) both the PhotoRAW and to the Plus community, having bailed out from Lightroom 5.7 and all things Adobe, initially sparked by their abandonment of perpetual licensing going forward (until then I’d been an Adobe user since about 2000). I had fond memories of your Mask Pro and Genuine Fractals plug-ins from earlier Adobe days, so I decided to check out what you are doing with Photo RAW and took advantage of your generous December promotional package. I am blown away by the quality of the Photo RAW product and by the range and quality of educational and coaching materials available both to the Plus community and to users generally. Not to mention your responsive tech support. I’m recommending your software and this community to those members of my local photography club (200+ members from beginners to pros) whether want a change from Adobe or who are starting out in digital photography from scratch.
