Category: What’s New in 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 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.
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.
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).
Of all the retouching tools included in ON1, one of the best is the Clone Stamp tool. In version 2017.5, the Clone Stamp is available in the non-destructive workflow part of Develop and Effects.
New in 2017.5 are the advanced searching options when you need to find your photos. You can now search using a variety of metadata fields and decide if the search must match all or any of the search criteria.
The Insert Preset command in Effects is back in version 2017.5. This feature makes it easy to stack multiple presets and create even more looks in Effects. Just hover over a preset and hold down the alt/option key and when you click on the preset it will stack it on top of your other settings.
The New Lens Correction pane in version 2017.5 automatically detects your lens and reduces distortion, chromatic aberration and peripheral fall-off. It automatically applies the correction when you browse to a photo. Further manual adjustments can also be made in Develop. If there isn’t a built-in profile for your lens you can manually adjust it as well.
One of the most important new features is the non-destructive editing found in Photo RAW 2017. It makes it really easy to apply edits and settings to many other photos at once.
One of the really handy features in ON1 Photo RAW 2017 are the new local adjustment layers and local adjustment tools. They are available with both Develop and Effects and shared between the two modules. They allow you to selectively apply edits or effects to certain areas of your photo.
See the all-new updates to ON1 Effects, inside of ON1 Photo RAW 2017. Each filter is now in the GPU making it lightning fast. Whether using ON1 Effects as a standalone in Photo RAW or as plug-in inside Lightroom or Photoshop, you’ll be able to experience all these new features and updates.
Welcome to the NEW Develop module inside ON1 Photo RAW 2017. Your new home for raw processing. Develop works on almost any type of photo and not just raw photos. Develop uses our brand new raw processing engine and new image processing pipeline. Here’s a quick tour I put together for you to have a look!
New in Photo RAW is the ability to save both edits from Develop and Effects in one preset. This creates a ton of great new opportunities for the types of presets you can create.
You’ve seen bits and pieces of the Develop Module, but here I wanted to piece it all together. This is the place to go for your raw processing. There are new controls, sliders, and all new presets.
