ON1 Photo RAW 2017.5, the latest update to our all-in-one photo organizer, editor, raw processor and effects app for macOS® and Microsoft® Windows®, is available for immediate download. Version 2017.5 adds powerful new features optimized for performance and ease of use.
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).
Preset Management can be an essential part of speeding up your workflow process. Like most things, being organized can be half the battle. I wanted to share a few tips on how to manage your presets by removing categories you do not need and organizing your favorite presets with quick and easy to find categories. When your presets are at your finger tips it makes your post editing, quick and easy to power through right in browse.
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.
