Hi everyone! Wondering what’s in store for next year in ON1 Plus? Well, we have some really exciting new photography coaches, training, and features coming in 2017 we want to share with you. You may remember the survey we made a few months back requesting your feedback, the community responded and we listened. Here is a small taste of what’s in store for 2017…

Portland OR – September 18, 2016 – ON1 Inc. today announced the Photo RAW Sweepstakes, ahead of their November release of ON1 Photo RAW.
Individuals can enter for the chance to win ON1 Photo RAW and some great photography prizes including Wacom® tablets, Sony® Mirrorless cameras, both B&H and Amazon® gift cards, an Apple® Ipad® Pro, and a DJI® Phantom 4 Quadcopter. New prizes are awarded to lucky winners each week for the next 8 weeks.
I’m amazed after all these years there is so much diversity in workflows. All the variable ways people download, organize and edit means if you talk to another photographer about their workflow, chances are it is different than yours. It’s not just in the software or equipment we use. Some of us organize by date, others by client or subject. Some shoot RAW, some JPG, some both. Some of us rename, others don’t.
In ON1 Photo RAW, the Adjustment Brush and Adjustable Gradient filters from Effects will be full-fledged tools you can access and edit in any module. These will be part of the shared tools like Crop, Retouch, Perfect Eraser and Clone that will be available and re-editable, nondestructively, in Develop & Effects. In the tool-well on the left you see icons for the Adjustment Brush and Adjustable Gradient tools. At the top in the tool-options are are the familiar controls for adjusting brush size, opacity, feather, etc. On the right you see two tabs below the navigator; Overall Settings and Local Adjustments. Overall Settings is what you see today in Photo 10, the control panes or filters that affect the entire photo.
Hopefully you’ve found the Photo RAW Project by now and have been engaging with our discussions on all of the great ideas. To date, we’ve had over 200 submissions since we launched the project just over a ooonth ago. It has become an indispensable tool for me and helps me plan what features to tackle next. I thought I would share some of my favorite ideas directly from the project. A Dano’s Top 10 list if you would…
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.
