If you’ve been watching the ON1 Blog for the past couple of weeks, you’ve probably started seeing more and more updates about the upcoming ON1 Photo RAW. I’ve had the luck of being able to get a sneak peak at how the new software is going to run and let me say this; it looks incredible. I am right there with you, salivating over all the new features, ready to jump right in!
Whitney (my wife) was kind enough to record this video for me. Thanks honey! :)
I want to talk about ON1 Photo RAW and how you don’t have to import your photos to work on them. What does that mean? What do we lose? When we first talked about the fast browsing capabilities in ON1 Photo RAW some users first thought there was no database (think catalog), which meant limited searching and file management capabilities. That’s not correct, so I’ll do my best to clear that part up.
As you’ve probably heard by now, ON1 Photo RAW has a new rendering pipeline which leverages the power of your graphics processor (GPU). This architectural change was made to improve performance and have better support for large high-dpi displays. One of the biggest benefits is the reduction in amount of memory required.
ON1 Photo RAW allows for a much smoother and natural editing experience when adding or adjusting filters. In fact, it’s much easier to add and adjust filters in your stack and between modules with new mid stack rendering. Mid stack rendering allows you to make adjustments and see them in real time without turning off effects higher in the stack.
Let’s take a look at a comparison of the processing speed between ON1 Photo 10.5 and the new ON1 Photo RAW – with its new fast module switching and nondestructive workflow. You’ll notice how in ON1 Photo RAW it only took us about 43 seconds – in ON Photo 10.5 it takes twice as long. Everything is faster in ON1 Photo RAW – faster file opening, faster module switching, faster adjustments, and faster file saving.
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…
