The first post in a three-part series from ON1 Founder and President, Craig Keudell.
July 1st marked our 15th year in business! Back in 2005, with just four employees, folding tables and chairs, and a tiny office, we set out to develop and deliver time-saving software solutions for professional and advanced amateur photographers in the digital photography and graphic design industries. Our goal was to create software that helped photographers spend more time behind their cameras, taking pictures instead of at their computer workstation.
Over the next decade and a half, our software solutions grew to a range of easy-to-use plug-in and enhancements for Adobe® Photoshop®, Adobe Lightroom®, Adobe Photoshop Elements®, QuarkXPress® and the standalone applications you use and love today. Some of those popular titles included Genuine Fractals® (now ON1 Resize), Mask Pro, PhotoFrame, PhotoTools, FocalPoint, PhotoTune, Intellihance, DSLR Camera Remote, Perfect Portrait, Browse, Develop, ON1 Photo RAW, and the new ON1 360 and ON1 Photo Mobile app.
I want to thank our dedicated team of hardworking employees who have always strived to attain the goals set out in the original company mission. Each and every one of them has been committed to the success of all photographers. It’s been amazing seeing what photographers can achieve using our software applications. Of course, we wouldn’t be where we are today without our loyal customers. I want to take this opportunity to thank each customer who continues seeing the value ON1 delivers to them.
During our 15-year celebration, now is not the time we will sit back and coast along. Our ability to adapt and be flexible led us to where we are today, and there has never been a more exciting time for photographers. Our newest release, ON1 360, has been a massive hit with our customers. They can now take their photography and ON1 editing tools wherever they go for the first time. We have even more new products coming soon, we can’t wait to share them with you.
From everyone here at ON1, thank you for trusting us to be a part of your photography journey all these years.
All the Best,
Take Photography Further.
