About the ON1 Photo RAW Project

The ON1 Photo RAW Project gives you the chance to be a part of what we're developing at ON1. You have a voice in the future of photo editing. Your ideas will help us deliver the best available apps for photography, give us insight into what's most important, and help spark innovation.

You must log in to submit an idea.

Share Your Ideas

Share your ideas for new Photo RAW features. Make sure you write a convincing description. Remember, people won't be able to give an idea a high rating unless they understand the idea completely.

Tell Your Friends

With supporters, your ideas will get higher ratings. In fact, tell everyone you know to support your idea. The more ratings an idea gets, the more likely it will be sent to our product development team.

ON1 Will Review It

After an idea reaches 200 ratings with a 3-star or higher rating, the project team will review the details and begin asking questions. We can't put every good idea into development, but we'll try!

This is available in the current release.

Please enable sequential numbering of photos. I take a LOT of wildlife and bird photos. Once I sort yo reject any that are out if focus or badly composed I will save the rest. I can batch save metadata (thank you!) but it seems that I have to number each file separately — e.g. red-tailed...

In Lightroom there is a handy tool where you can compare the picture while working on it with the original. In different -splitview- ways. It is THE way to see if you are done.

I’d like to have the possibility to filter by version of a picture,e.g. find all pics named “filenameV3.ext” in the selected folder.

I am a new On1 user who has just switched from LR.  It’s taking a while but I’m learning.  I would like to enter metadata such as Author, email address, copyright data, etc., just one time and have it permanently entered.  Are you working on this?

It would be very interesting to be able to save our videos together with the photos in the same folder, and be able to visón them on On1. I’m not talking about editing, but at least I can see them. We will have all the files in the session together and located

I have more than ten thousands photos in the library because I am a portrait photo grapher. So the file names are important to me. For now, ON1 file naming function is very weak. To summerize, renaming files at least need below functions: 1, 2018 has version/virtual copy function, which is good. However, the file...

Currently there is a 25 image limit for panoramas. I know that 25 images are a lot, but on some panorama sets I can have 30+ to capture a high detail/resolution panorama. I usually use Kolor Autopano Pro for panoramas and it’s able to stitch 30+ images together. It would be nice if ON1 was...
Photo RAW 2017 and 2018 offer Adobe RGB as the higher color gamut workspace. While it is OK for what it is, I still prefer ProPhoto RGB, a more extensive color gamut workspace. It would be great if this was made available in PR 2018 as an option besides Adobe RGB. ProPhoto RGB has long...

Please add the following metadata to the thumbnails in film strip mode (rating, like, and possible color label). This will significantly improve the speed of culling and allow for a non-linear processing of images. This would also complement the filter functionality enhancing the culling experience and overall workflow speed while minimizing mouse clicks. BR Magnus

I agree with many others about enhancing the file renaming capability. I currently use LightRoom and it allows me to file my photos with a naming convention that includes the date and time extracted from the XMP metadata. it is as follows: YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS-JAH.dng If there are more photos taken within the same second, I have...

Please, please enhance the ability to insert metadata on import.  With the changes happening in Lightroom, I’d really like to dump it, but use the metadata import presets heavily.

I would like to suggest that ON1 RAW provide the ability to have OEM software do the RAW conversion, for selected RAW files. “Open with…” menu command to have ON1 to pass a selected RAW file to say Nikon’s ViewNX-i / Capture NX-D, in the case of NEFs or say RAW File Converter EX2 (powered...

It would be helpful if all available metadata from raw files was read by Photo Raw. As of 2017.6, embedded GPS exif data in my RW2 files is not seen by Photo Raw. I started experimenting a bit to get a better idea of what was going on and noticed that Photo Raw also does...
hallo, instead of painting with a masking brush 30% opacity on  amask to decrease its effect, it would be very helpful, like photoshop, to change density of the mask and make black grey,…   best regards marc

It is quite clear that ON1 could be used in place of Lightroom but it does not have a feature I use routinely. I have many photos from the days of film and need to date them with the actual time the photo was taken. Please add this feature so I can finally let Lightroom...
It is important that together with being able to name and then to re-name a file folder, an end-user needs to be able to choose the image file that should represent the content of the folder. It would also be nice to NOT have an image display a thumbnail if that is preferable for the...

Appreciating the task of keeping Photo RAW true to its vision and purpose, I would like to have the option of one way importing raw photos, shot tethered using Capture Pro to remove chromatic abberation, lens distortion etc, into Photo RAW for their continued processing and effects.

I would like to see the possibility to edit the same photo (on a shared network folder) from multiple computers. Important scenarios that need this include: Collaboration between several professionals working on the same project Working – alternately – from two computers, e.g. a main desktop and a laptop (That’s my personal interest). Currently it...

I regularly use Pick/Reject + Auto Advance to do a first cut of images before importing to LR.  Auto Advance is a great timesaver — for my purposes, fully half the value of Browse — and not having it is frustrating.  I understand that it was broken in the release prior to 2017.1 (“PPX-9531 Auto...

I often find the maximum feathering of 100 still makes my masks edges too hard when I want smooth transitions. So either the feathering should be a lot smoother, or perhaps there could be provided a possibility to blur masks.

I currently use Lightroom CC and one of the go to features I constantly use is HDR stacking of multiple exposure photos. This feature needs to auto align and perform deghosting. I need this feature before I can give up lightroom.

I have a Wacom (Bamboo) pen + touch tablet, ON! currently doesn’t seem to be supporting pressure-sensitivity, which would be particularly useful when using the brush.
Idea is to go beyond the split screen processed/original display to allow the user to compare 2 or more alternative processing treatments – either from presets or user-specified adjustments in Develop or FX modules. Essentially, a virtual light table with option for 2/4/6/8-up display of user-tagged images. Workflow would be: 1. Apply a preset, or...

How about making downloading photos from camera and other devices easier by just having IMPORT. Just as Photoshop ELements does….you can decide where they go later. I for one do not store in categories, I use dates of photos shot.  Works for me.
Have the possibility to position manually the images in browse in order to be able to rename them with a sequence number that maintain the new order manually choosen. At least myself, many times I need to have the image ordered differently than the usual listing (Date modified, Date captured,Color Label, File name, and so...
In the previous version (10) you could insert a preset on top existing layers. In this version (although in one video by Dan, I see him inserting) the preset must be the first step, otherwise it deletes all layers that are there already. Very annoying. Please get the “Insert Preset” option back.
A while ago an email asked what we use our cell phone cameras for.  I did months of research and decided on the LG G5 as have a good camera.  As with many the cell phone is almost always with me. I now have 2 with the Cam Pro attachment.  Problem is, Photo Raw does not recognize...

Please return the ability to rotate images 90 degrees into the Develop Module.  Sometimes you just want to rotate an image alone or do a little adjustment within the Develop module and not have to go into Layers crop tool to rotate it and then back to Develop to adjust tone and color.  I find...
