Hi everyone! We know you’re all excited get your hands on the new ON1 Photo RAW app we’ve been busy building for you. Our developers are working very hard and things are coming together nicely.

Most of us have more than one computer we work on our photos with. I have an iMac I use at home for my main editing. It has a beautifully huge display. It’s where my photos live.
I also have a laptop I use when traveling, or when I want to sit on the couch. There are lots of ways to get your photos on both computers. I use Dropbox but there are lots of other great and inexpensive cloud syncing solutions (Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, etc). Most of this storage is darn-near free. If you have an Office 365 account they give you 1TB of OneDrive for free. Same thing if you have Amazon Prime, you get unlimited free Amazon Cloud Drive storage. Cloud storage is great. It gives you an online backup you can access anywhere and automatically manages keeping your photos in sync across multiple devices.
Hey everybody. As many of you know I spent a good part of the summer of 2013 as the cinematographer/still-photographer for An American Ascent, a documentary film on Denali (previously Mount Mckinley). It’s toured the festival circuit and garnered a number of awards over the past year.
For photographers who photograph people, retouching faces can be a big part of their workflow. However, the amount or style of retouching and the tools and techniques used vary. Like any creative adjustment, the amount or style of retouching changes from artist to artist and can even change over time based on the trending look. Haven’t you noticed the style of retouching has shifted to be a more natural, subtle adjustment over the past five years or so? Just a few years ago everyone had porcelain smooth skin and snow-white teeth. This also reminds me of the parallels with HDR. A few years ago HDR was over-the-top with crazy contrast and color. Today it’s a more refined style.
Hi all! I wanted to give you a quick update about ON1 Plus now that we are half way through the year. I’ve enjoyed all the great questions, posts, videos, and conversations I’ve had in this community and wanted to give a sneak peek about what’s coming the rest of this year, and next!
As a landscape photographer you can mostly control the places you photograph, the time of day, and season, but that’s about it. You can’t control weather, air pollution, and many other factors. Haze in the air, causing atmospheric distortion, is a common problem and a tough one. Particulate in the air, whether from smoke, pollen, pollution or water vapor, creates haze. The amount of haze increases the farther away the subject is and can create layers of haze. There are a few tools to help reduce haze when you’re shooting, like UV/Haze filters and Polarizers. Often times they only provide a little help. With software, you can increase the contrast to help cut through the haze but it can negatively impact the darker tones if you’re not careful. A few software providers have developed special controls for reducing haze.
Tony Vasquez earned a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art Photography at Ball State University of Indiana. His life experiences are evident in his work. Whether taking a portrait of a bride and groom, senior portrait, or shooting a band on stage, his art is an expression and celebration of life. He was kind enough to share his journey with us.
See the new non-destructive workflow inside of ON1 Photo RAW. One of the cool things about non-destructive editing is that the original photo (any file type Photo RAW can read – raw, jpeg, tiff, psd, etc.) is never modified. All the edits you do are stored as instructions. Again, no matter the file type. This makes opening and saving your photos fast.
If you’ve used ON1 Effects (or even Lightroom®) you understand the value of presets. Presets are used all the time whether you make some for yourself or import presets from others. Presets allow you to “wrap-up” your settings so you can use them again on other photos. Today presets are created at the module level, such as presets for Effects, or Enhance or Resize. You can view and apply these presets in the modules that created them or batch process with them.
Matt Kloskowski shows a recent prototype for ON1 Photo RAW. Matt works on a 36 megapixel raw file and shows the speed of a few filters including; lens blurs, lens correction, and Dynamic Contrast. If you used ON1 Effects before, you can see new changes in how effects are adjusted lower in the stack without turning filters (higher in the stack) on or off.
One important question we keep seeing deals with differences between cataloging and browsing and how this will be handled ON1 Photo RAW.
Let’s dive in…
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…
Wow, what a week! I’m amazed at the response and support we received about the ON1 Photo RAW announcement. Thank-you! I’ve been combing through the news and comments around the web from the photography community and wanted to address some important questions about Photo RAW. Anything I missed? Leave me a comment! – Dan
Includes updates to ON1 Effects, improved masking tools, and over 1000 new borders and textures
Once again, user feedback has been tremendous in helping improve ON1 Photo 10. We’ve been hard at work the past several months on improving the user experience. In this latest release, version 10.5, we’ve made improvements in several areas including; selectively applying effects, masking, additional creative content, and plug-in integration. ON1 Photo 10.5 is a FREE update for owners of version 10.
ON1 Photo Raw will feature non-destructive editing with Photo Effects and even let you sync those preset settings across multiple photos.
