New ON1 Photo RAW 2023.5 Coming Early June
May 4, 2023
ON1 Software, a leading provider of digital photo editing tools, has announced the release of ON1 Photo RAW 2023.5, the latest version of its popular photo editing software. This new release coming in early June will include all the improvements in the new ON1 Resize 2023.5 fully integrated into Photo RAW, plus many enhanced features and an improved user experience.
Integration of the new Resize AI is one of the most significant updates to ON1 Photo RAW 2023.5. This update includes the new Face Recovery AI model that can detect faces and enhances them with realistic detail, making it perfect for upscaling old photos or cropping a person or headshot out of an image and upscaling it to super-resolution. Users can turn this feature on or off for each face and control the overall strength to blend best with the original photo. It also includes AI-based noise reduction for photos with high noise or JPG artifacts. In addition, the incredible new Face Recovery AI feature will also be available as part of the non-destructive workflow in Edit, making it easy to reconstruct a face from modest details to realistic features and textures.
The raw processing engine has also been upgraded with new processing algorithms to create more natural shadows, fewer edge artifacts, and more predictable slider adjustments. The Refine Mask brush has also been greatly improved, making it much better for masking challenging areas like hair and tree branches. A fantastic new feature is the Encircle option in the Refine Mask tool. It allows users to draw around the borders of an object or region to add or subtract from a mask, or even create a new detailed mask with the stroke of a brush.
Other improvements in ON1 Photo RAW 2023.5 include two new options for Mask AI, making it easier to create masks of the foreground and background in photos of people and animals. The Curves control in the Effects module now includes a dropper tool to set and adjust points directly in the photo, as well as other modern enhancements. Zooming and panning the preview as well as adjusting tool properties such as brush size can now be accomplished simultaneously with the scroll wheel for a faster, more natural workflow.
ON1 Photo RAW 2023.5 also includes support for new cameras and lenses, as well as bug fixes and several new enhancements to improve overall performance.
“We are thrilled to announce the upcoming release of ON1 Photo RAW 2023.5, with each of the enhancements,” says Craig Keudell, President of ON1. “This latest release will provide ON1 users with enhanced features, improved performance, and an overall better experience. We are confident that users will love the new features and improvements in ON1 Photo RAW 2023.5. It’s not a minor update by any means and could have easily made this the next major release of ON1 Photo RAW.
