Today we announce the availability of the public beta of the new ON1 Photo RAW 2020. This new version is the first product to be released in ON1’s new line of creative products announced in August. This professional-grade photo organizer, raw processor, layered editor, and effects app, is available as an all-in-one photography application.
Photography Your Way, The ON1 Difference.
Most mainstream photo software solutions take away control of your photography by locking away the organization and editing of your photos into closed systems. These solutions metaphorically hold your photos hostage by only allowing access to the tools and features you need as long as you pay up and stay within their system. You even have to store your photos in their cloud system to use them.
“ON1 Photo RAW 2020 is full of under-the-hood performance updates for speed. It also includes some killer new AI tools and totally new features requested by our customers. We are also super excited to be working together with SmugMug and X-Rite to push those exciting new features,” says Dan Harlacher, VP of Product,
With ON1 Photo RAW 2020, you have control of what’s yours and what matters to you with photography – it’s Photography Your Way. The ON1 difference is to provide an open system keeping you in control of your photos and give you choices in the organization, storage, editing, creative style, and how you purchase our products. We will never force you into a subscription model.
“ON1 Photo RAW 2020, is the flagship product to our complete creative ecosystem of apps and services for photographers. As photography changes, we need to offer a complete solution to our customers and be on all the devices where photography takes place. It’s a very exciting time for ON1 and our customers. For the first time, ON1 will be wherever your photography is, on the desktop, in the field, in the studio, in the cloud or on your phone.” President and CEO, Craig Keudell adds.
