Best of ON1 Plus 2020 & What’s Ahead

ON1 Plus is alive and well. We’ve been working from home, developing new and exciting training materials (and software improvements, of course). As many of you are now spending most of your time at home, we hope this has been an opportunity for you to fuel your passion for photography and take advantage of the membership benefits.

Let’s revisit all the fantastic photography training we’ve produced so far this year and talk about what’s ahead. There is also a special survey to submit ideas and feedback on what training topics we should produce next.


One of the many benefits of being an ON1 Plus member is the video courses each member receives for FREE throughout the year. This last year was loaded with some new photography and editing courses. View courses →



In addition to the courses and monthly tip videos, we have many “How to Shoot” videos.

These episodes include the best practices for how to shoot a certain subject matter. These tutorials encompassed everything you need to know about how to shoot the subject, gear considerations, what to understand at the scene, and how to get the best looking photos possible in post-processing. What ‘How to Shoot’ video should we make next?


Each month Hudson drops a new topical video based on requests from members. We call them Hudson’s Tips and Tricks →

    Maybe more training on compositing in ON1, an in-depth look at how to use layers/extractions/tone/color/color grading/textures/effects and post production to complete a composite project. This is typically all done in PS so understanding how to perform this in ON1 might be quite beneficial for a lot of fine art photographers.

    I really appreciate how much effort and thought go into your educational materials. I think that you are actually an educational institution or college of photography that uses your software as the text book or work book rather than a purveyor of post processing software. You are accumulating a massive amount of material. When I process an image, and need some assistance, I turn to your videos for help. The problem is that I spend a lot of time trying to find answers and thus I wish to make a suggestion – it would be a huge help if there was an index that you could make available that would suggest which video(s) to seek about certain subject matter. Great work so far.

      I agree with this suggestion. Like an index of subjects with a link to any relevant video or materials.

      Thank you for the kind words Gordon. The Video library has a search field and you can also use the filters on the left to narrow your results by various categories. The user guide is a very great resources to have on hand as well, you can search the document for key terms.

    Love the indexing suggestion. Hope you pursue it.

    This may not be the right place. I use the Text tool quite a bit. However, I find the color designations are not true and correct. Orange shades come to mind. When I chose them, they usually come out red.

    I would really appreciate seeing a workflow video on infrared photography processing in Photo Raw. I know our numbers are small but we’re all waiting.

      Would be great!

      I agree. It would be fantastic to have some tutorials on infrared photography. We welcome an entire course divided into sections that take us through the entire process and understanding of infrared photography, including choices for camera conversions. Yes, yes, yes!

    It has been a great year. In all the look ahead or coming soon articles there has been no comments about ON1 Video. Is that still in the works for 2020 ?

    I do a lot of greeting cards, some with double sided printing, others images on front and back etc. I find ON1’s printing module very difficult to use and many time have to move back to Lightroom. If the ability to do this type of printing is currently available in ON1 a printing course would be most welcome if it is not I for one would see this ability a huge addition to your software.
