The first post of a three part series covering film emulation in ON1 Photo 2017. Product Director Dan Harlacher and QA Engineer Jonny Davenport put together a fun project for emulating film looks in ON1 Photo 2017. These new film looks will be available as part of the next free update.
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.
Many of you haven’t heard of Photo Via, our latest mobile app for iOS. It makes it easy to sync your favorite photos in Lightroom with your mobile devices. In Lightroom you can select what you want to sync; from individual photos to smart albums to folders or even your entire photo library. This synchronization is done wirelessly using cloud storage services you already use (like Google Drive and Dropbox). One of the big benefits being you don’t have to sign-up and pay for another service.
Once your photos are synced to your mobile device you can view, search and share them easily. It’s perfect for adding your portfolio, recent vacation pics or latest job to your iPhone or iPad for on-the-go viewing. You can even view and change the rating and flags on your photos (via your mobile device) and those changes sync back to your desktop.
You can use Photo Via today if you have Lightroom. However, coming this fall you will be able to use it inside of the next generation Browse module. Even better, early in 2016 we will be adding two-sync photo sync. That’s right! Photos you take on your iPhone (or even iPad if that’s what you do) can be automatically downloaded and added to ON1 Photo or Lightroom. Then you can manage and edit them just like your other photos.
