Category: ON1 Photo RAW 2017
In version 2017.6 (coming later this month), we’ve added the ability to rotate your photos in Browse, Develop, and Effects. We’ve also add the rotation options directly in Film Strip view. Lastly, the rotate photo options are also available when cropping a photo.
New in ON1 Photo RAW 2017.6 (coming later this month) is the new option for adjusting white balance on your photos. When processing raw photos, the color temperature range is now measured in Kelvin degrees, giving you a larger and more accurate range to make adjustments.
New in 2017.6 (a free update near the end of this month) is the next generation of Indexed Folders. The new Cataloged Folders now caches a fit sized image to allow for much faster browsing. It keeps track of all the photos and all the metadata inside the folder. Instantly view and scroll through photos with the power of a database and the performance of an ultra fast browser.
Has this ever happened to you? You’re in great location, you have a great subject, and you think you got the shot. But when you get home, you realize that your exposure is not as good as you hoped it would be.
We have another free update coming near the end of this month for ON1 Photo RAW 2017, version 2017.6. Over the next couple weeks we will be posting the new features in the release here on the blog.
A photograph with a strong and clear subject grabs a viewer’s attention. ON1 Photo RAW makes it fast and simple to accentuate the subject in your scene. Join me as I use filters and masks to make my photo’s subject pop.
It is unfortunate that we can’t always have the most abundant skies when we are out and about. My wife always says, “It’s a beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky!” I can’t stand it, as a landscape photographer we need those puffy softboxes to drown out shadows and add interest to that big blue blob of negative space.
So, what do you do?
I am excited to start this workflow video at the very beginning with some important lighting tips for capturing your subject. I was inspired by a new tire swing photo prop and wanted to give it a test run. I will share how I approached the lighting challenges for this location and then I will edit a couple photos in ON1 Effects to show you how I completed my inspiration for this session with a beautiful summer finish.
As photographers, it is our job to direct the viewer’s eye to the place we want them to experience in the photo. Some would think that composition alone is the best way to do that, however, there are creative ways as well.
Dodging and burning can make or break a photograph. It’s also a way of leaving your own signature on a piece of work. There are many ways to do it but in this video, we’ll look at using a couple blend modes and a brush to quickly turn a good photograph into a great one. You don’t always need complex tools to make profound changes in your work. Simple tools applied in a sophisticated way can make all the difference!
ON1 Photo RAW 2017 makes photo editing fast and easy. I concentrate on three things when editing photos: Tone, Color and Style. In this ON1 Short Clip, I use the speed of the Develop module and the flexibility of Local Adjustments to quickly process and style a final image. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.
Having a smooth workflow can have a huge impact on the time you spend in post-production. In this video, I want to share my personal workflow for Bliss Studio. I have found faster ways to cull through my images and get them prepped for clients to view. I’ll take you from the beginning of the process, through adding presets, all the way to exporting them out for both web and final prints. It is always good to find ways to improve your workflow as even small changes can have the impact you need.

How many times have you been on location with a great subject in front of you only to have to deal with mediocre light? While nothing beats shooting in perfect light, being able to create your own in post-production can make up for a lot. It also increases your creative options. With a couple of masks, a brush, and the gradient masking bug, you have a lighting studio at your fingertips. By the end of this video, you’ll be able to take control of the lighting in your photos by creating what wasn’t there.
The New Details Pan in Develop combines sharpening and noise reduction. These two controls tend to fight each other so we put them together in the new version. Whenever adjusting sharpening or noise reduction you will always want to make sure to zoom to 100% so you can see how these adjustments are being applied to your photo. We have also improved noise reduction so you get better results and be able to control how it is applied to both luminance and color noise. The new Details Pane is going to give you the optimal sharpness and noise reduction.
In ON1 Photo 2017.5, we’ve taken what we like the best from compare and survey mode and combined them into one. In the New Compare Mode, you can compare multiple photos (up to 15 at once!) in browse in order to find the best one. It’s perfect for looking at a series of photos to find your best ones. You can even zoom and pan all the photos together at once (or one by one).
