Plugin Development Framework for 3rd Party Plugins

A Plugin framework will allow for users to expand the capabilities of the program beyond what it was included with. The SDK for Lightroom has added the ability to publish photos to lots of different online sites, auto building of color profiles (Colorchecker), and many metadata handling options.

I have written very specific plugins for my business for LR and this is the main reason I cannot change to C1, not matter how much better it would process the images.

    I would like to see other On1 plugins available in the converter as they are in Lightroom.

    If we add something it would probably be for sharing to third party publishing services.

      There are some really great plug-ins for uploading to sites like Flickr. I don’t use the standard Lr plug-in as it completely sucks so I use the free one developed by Jeffery Freidl which provides a massive amount of flexibility for my up-loads.

      Developing an API that would allow guys like this to develop really useful plug-ins would be a plus for RAW, otherwise it looks like I’ll just use RAW as a Lr plug-in.

        I totally agree and this is exactly why I searched for this idea.
        An API would really pen it up, I for one export all my images via Jeffery Freidl’s work and would love to see that here.

        This along with improved profile support for Fuji images would tick the last couple of boxes to allow me to switch.

      I think at some point we have to stop looking at onOne Photo RAW as simply a RAW converter. This program has the legs to become a complete photo processor. Photo shop is very mature and bloated because it tries to be everything to every one but if onOne stays on course and sticks with photography we have a future replacement for all the Adobe junk. We just have to understand this is a young program. Give it a chance to mature and it will eventually be able to do our work.

    Having a SDK that allows for the extension of Photo RAW would be very valuable and allows for the production of functionality that ON1 dont have time to develop but which is very important to niche photographers.

    Opening up a system for 3rd party developers makes it more attractive to them and finally also for the users. Never underestimate the power of a development community.

    To learn how not to do it, just look at all the Japanese camera companies and their crappy software that nobody uses. But I understand you are a US company, so culture is not an excuse :-)

    I also use a lot of Jeffery Freidl’s plug-ins, and miss the versatility they offer.
