2022 was a fantastic year for ON1 Plus! On top of exclusive courses, videos, and Hudson’s Tips & Tricks, we released several new series along with our yearly ON1 Plus Week. So let’s take a look back at some of our favorites from last year in the ON1 Plus Best of 2022!
There’s also a survey at the end to decide which topics you want to learn about in 2023 – take that here.
In 2022, we released courses focused on editing techniques and innovative ways to create and adjust your photos. With lessons ranging from macro-photography to travel to portraiture and beyond – we were excited to release courses that focused on various subjects.
Your favorite Plus exclusive of the year was the Basics of RAW Processing Course – a course dedicated to editing, manipulating, and retouching RAW image files. Learn what RAW files are, why they’re beneficial, and how to adjust and modify them.
It’s no surprise that the Everything New in Photo RAW 2022 course is next on our list. This course, our first course released in 2022, dives deep into every new feature of Photo RAW, along with fun and innovative ways to fine-tune and adjust your RAW photographs.
Coming up in our next top spot was our How to Use Creative Extras Course (not to get confused with the How to Shoot Creative Extras Course), which featured the ins and outs of capturing and creating your own custom extras to use in Photo RAW and Effects. From textures to borders to LUTs, this course has you covered when it comes to incorporating and blending creative extras and assets into your photos.
If you’re looking to focus on the smaller things in life, the Introduction to Macro Photography Course was your next top course! In the Introduction to Macro Photography Course, we create and explore new worlds with our camera and lens. From water droplets to captivating textures, this course is perfect for anyone looking to jump into the tiny world of macro photography.
If you’re a Sky Swap AI fan, our next favorite will help you master the art of swapping and blending in new skies with your original ones. The Mastering Sky Swaps and Sky Enhancements course is your essential guide to enhancing and replacing the skies in your photography. From incorporating local adjustments to bring in detail and color to completely swapping out the sky background you have for a more interesting one – this course has you covered.
Aside from skies, if you’re looking to better your portrait photography game, Matthew Jordan Smith released a Plus exclusive about capturing portraiture at home! With the How to Shoot One Light Portraits at Home Course, you’ll learn how to create and capture interesting portraits from inside smaller spaces such as your home or photography studio – and with minimal gear! This course is an excellent primer for anyone looking to up their portraiture game in the modern world!
While Photo RAW’s organizational tools and features may not earn as much love as their NoNoise AI or Sky Swap AI counterparts – they are still some of the most powerful features inside the application! Nobody explains organization better than Hudson Henry, a long-time ON1 Guru, photography friend, and your monthly instructor for insider tips and tricks when using Photo RAW. Learn how to better organize your photography with May’s tip and trick video: How to Organize, Find, and Backup Images in Photo RAW.
