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.
Google/Nik® recently announced they will no longer update the Nik Collection of plug-ins or add any new features in the future. With this important photography news, we felt it was time ON1 reached out to the photography community on the topic.
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.
Hi Plus Members, I am SO excited to finally be coaching for ON1! My name is Liz and you may recognize me from some of ON1’s training materials; I’ve been working with them for over 5 years now. I’m thrilled to be focusing on portrait and studio photography this month! It’s a topic I’m both passionate about and well-versed in – 90% of my photography work is portraiture in some form.
In a day and age where photos are no longer “a dime a dozen,” but more like “a dime a billion,” you really need something special and unique to pull viewers into your frame. Every choice you make from subject and composition to exposure and camera settings- all should be done for a purpose and with reason. The same holds true with post-production. Join me for this ON1 Inspiration video about visual storytelling and ON1 Photo RAW 2017. Learn some of the tricks that I use for capturing the unique visual story for this image from Death Valley National Park. These steps are easy to follow along with and replicate to create your own unique visual story.
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.
Watch the recording of my live Q&A session with ON1 Plus community. During the presentation, I answer questions about Visual Storytelling, post processing, camera gear and more!
Last week I took the ON1 team on a photo walk in a cute little area of Portland called, Multnomah Village. I gave each team member a card with the scavenger hunt and they had try and capture a photo representing each of the ten themes. Some of you may have had a sneak peek of this Scavenger hunt on the forums (in the portrait category) where I extended the assignment to our Plus members. This Scavenger Hunt was created for the ON1 team’s May photo walk but I loved extending it to plus members and seeing everyone’s posts so far.
Masking is a technology that sits underneath a lot of the features that you use everyday in ON1 Photo RAW 2017. Combining multiple photos, brushing in or out effects, sky or face swapping- it’s all masking! I show you how masking is used throughout each module: Develop, Effects, and Layers, and how to use each different tool to get the best mask possible for each.
In this workflow video, you will learn how to effectively use the tools, their advanced features, and some tips and tricks to create your own beautiful masks throughout ON1 Photo RAW 2017.
