    I was lucky enough to be able to download Raw 2017.6, a little earlier this afternoon.
    I went back and reworked some of my recent photos. (As I wanted to compare Photo Raw 2017.5 with 2017.6).
    Thank you On1, your products just keep on getting better.

    So I just downloaded the new update and Browse is fast, fast, fast! Finally functionality! Still there are a few bugs with rendering (which I’ve posted in the forums) involving images which were edited in RAW 11.5.xxxx.

    downloaded the new version, in development the temperature slider is still the old way and not in kelvin as shown in the video about the changes, am I missing something.

      I was mistaken too, but then others pointed me out, that I am looking at the jpegs. Try with the RAW file and you should be able to see a Kelvin scale. From the UI point of view, I would probably preffer button being just disabled, rather than disappearing. A bit confusing imo ….

    I tried a cr2 file from a Canon 7d mkll, and in develop it shows the old scale with no kelven button

    Thanks for the update. I am just wondering when you will have an update that will support dual monitors. Originally you had said that would be the first of 2017, and I am still waiting. Or ,will support for dual monitors be in the next edition? I use dual monitors for my work, and have done so for years. As soon as On1 has support for them, I can finally give up my old CS6 as a host program

    Another feature packed update(!). You guys are really committed to this already great product. I now use it as my main raw converter (I have several others), mostly due to the compare mode, where I can compare, rate and delete through many images really quickly. A huge time saver… 🙂

    Recently I had a computer crash (blue screens with error codes related to memory or hard drives). Long story short; I migrated my image archive over to a new harddrive and built new Cataloged Folders in ON1. In this process I just noticed that some of my images had been corrupted (both the thumbnail and image has big parts covered with magenta blocks and stripes). Since I already had built the Cataloged Folders I just copied (overwrite) all my cataloged raw images with the originals from a backup drive.
    (Since the previews and thumbnails had already been generated they don’t automatically update in ON1 when browsing through my images.)
    My suggestion for such rare cases would be to introduce an option to “Rebuild Thumbnails and Previews” in cataloged folders. Best place to put this option is in the context menu when you right-click (option-click) on a Cataloged Folder or subfolder. It’s much easier to overwrite the bad files and update previews than it is to delete and rebuild the whole Cataloged Folder.
    This is something that shouldn’t happen, but somtimes the impossible do happen. And when it happens you will be really glad that you have a good backup solution to all of your precious images….

    ON1 Photo RAW 2017 has come a looong way in a short time with feature packed updates on a regular basis. I really like it. It still lacks some features like hierarchical keyword editing, dual monitor, grouped images and virtual copies(versions), but I trust that you work hard to beat your competition. ON1 is now my first stop for my images.
