Sneak Peek – Faster Editing and Fewer Clicks

A new powerful method for editing your photos is coming in Photo RAW 2021.5. You can now control the most common adjustments in Develop from most places within the app. New enhancements are also coming to the slider controls and you can now hook up Photo RAW to a control surface!

    Hi Dan, this is great news, as people have been asking for some time to be able to use a Loupedeck or similar with On1! This feature alone will be worth the upgrade cost.

    I saw in the video that you use a Stream Deck. I have one as well and wondered whether you would be able to offer up your settings and/or do a video on how you set it up and use it with On1.

    Best regards,

    Hey Dan,
    These new features look great. I’m thinking of getting a Stream Deck. Will I have to enter each On1 keystroke shortcut manually into the Stream Deck, myself, or will On1 develop/provide an icon set and profile to us to facilitate this process and make it less laborius?

    Very nice, looking forward to the release! Though it’s not perfectly clear how the shortcut works: Do you need to hold it while doing the adjustment or not? If not, then how do you tell On1 that you’re done with the adjustment so that it can “release” the arrow keys?

    Also, the only visual indication that the slider is being controlled is the feedback on the photo. That can be too subtle, however.

    The most intuitive implementation of this feature would be to only allow slider adjustment while holding the shortcut key, and having an overlay UI indicating which slider is being controlled and what its numerical value is. Releasing the hotkey would make the overlay disappear, making it fully clear that we’re back in normal mode.

    Hey Dan, Just went to PS, first time in years and found a great feature for zooming in and out. Ctrl + mouse wheel and Alt + mouse wheel. Would love this on ON1.
    ON1 is a terrific program now.

      This already exists in ON1. For Mac users, type Command and “+” to zoom in, Command and “-” to zoom out.

    Is there are key command for Import or can it be assigned? For Mac users on other software, Command + “I” (letter after “H” not L) opens the Import window.

    Hi Dan
    I have been thinking about suggesting using arrows to move sliders. I am getting a little shaky so need a way to inch sliders. The slider I have the most problem is the rotate slider in transform and since I often take unlevel photos, I use it frequently

    Will 2021.5 include Universal mode for Photo Raw and the plugins running on MacOS? If not, when will those updates planned?

      Those will come soon after this release.

    This looks really awesome! However, as someone who frequently forgets things, like which layer I’ve selected, etc., I would greatly appreciate for the notifications messages (such as “Shadows Activated”) to stay somewhere on screen the entire time they are in effect, rather than the non-persistent pop that occurs only when that slider is activated. Perhaps this kind of persistent indicator could be an option. Obviously the indicator should live somewhere that doesn’t obstruct the image itself.

    impressive Dan. I would second some of the comments before like supporting the new M1 chipsets natively soon I hope.
    I had never seen a stream deck but generally love Elgato products (except when they dump them like the external SSD like I am running right now on my iMac 2011 which is going to be replaced shortly by an m1.
    2 questions – will you provide those icons for the stream deck? I looked at the icon creator they have and it looks like it will take quite a bit of time and effort. Also, you should work with Elgato to make a bundle available for us including the deck at a discounted price.
