We Make it Easy to Switch to ON1

Since ON1 Photo RAW 2019, the Lightroom Migration tool has allowed users to seamlessly move their work from Lightroom to ON1 Photo RAW.

Two Ways to Switch from Lightroom to ON1

Are you ready to switch from Lightroom (only latest release of Lightroom 6 & Lightroom Classic CC) to ON1 Photo RAW 2024.5? If so, we want to make it as smooth as possible. There are two common migration paths and both depend on how you store your photos. Let's begin!

Want to migrate your organization from Lightroom?

We want you to maintain as much as you can from Lightroom so your time is not wasted. Our free Lightroom Migration Tool will assist transitioning from Lightroom.

Step 1. Find your photos

Connect any external drives or shares containing photos that you want to migrate. Then use the Sync Folder command in Lightroom to make sure your Lightroom catalog and the actual files are up-to-date. This will add any photos that Lightroom is missing as well as remove broken links.

Step 2. Pre-organize

Remove any photos, virtual copies, or collections that you don't care about. It's also a good time to reorganize your folders a bit if necessary. If you have multiple catalogs, rinse and repeat.

Step 3. Make the switch!

Next, install ON1 Photo RAW 2024.5 if you haven't already. Then open Lightroom and go to the File > Plugin Extras menu. Then select Migrate Catalog to ON1 Photo. You will see a dialog that looks like the one below.

The Migration Assistant will add the top-level folders in the Folders pane in Lightroom to Cataloged Folders in Photo RAW. All of the photos inside of these folders will be cataloged automatically. Your collections and Metadata changes made in Lightroom will be migrated and includes keywords, descriptions, ratings, labels, orientation, etc.

Lastly, RAW processing and editing settings from Lightroom's Develop module including crop, retouching, and local adjustments are migrated non-destructively so they can be re-edited in ON1 Photo RAW 2024.5.

Manage your photos in folders or sub-folders?

If you store and manage photos in a folder and your photos are then organized in sub-folders making the switch is easy. This path also assumes any edits you have made to your photos are stored in the photos themselves, or copies of the original photos. This is the case if you have been using a normal pixel-editor like Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. Simply open ON1 Photo RAW 2024.5 and browse to the location where your photos are stored.

If you have top-level folder (like your My Pictures folder) set it as a cataloged folder. Go to the File menu and select Add Cataloged Folder. This will add all of your folder and the photos in those folders to ON1 Photo RAW. Cataloging occurs in the background and extract and catalogs the images metadata as well as a screen-sized preview so you can search and move between photos lightning-fast. That’s it, you're done.

What is the difference between ON1 Photo RAW MAX 2024.5 and Photo RAW 2024.5?

Both editions have the same powerful features built into a single application including Develop, Effects, NoNoise AI, Resize AI, Sky Swap AI, Portrait AI, HDR, massive speed and performance enhancements, and many new AI editing technologies like Brilliance AI.

Photo RAW MAX 2024.5 Edition adds plugin compatibility so you can launch your favorite ON1 tools from inside other editors like Adobe Ps/Lr, Affinity, Apple Photos, and others, for a more flexible workflow. (With version 2023, plugins were sold separately). Photo RAW MAX 2024.5 can be installed on up to 3 computers and also includes 1 year of ON1 Cloud Sync for syncing photos across multiple computers, tablets, and phones when used with Photo RAW Mobile. Get the MAX Edition here.

The standard edition of Photo RAW 2024.5 features the same editing tools as the MAX edition, but it's for standalone use only, with installation on up to 2 computers. (ON1 Cloud Sync is only included with the MAX edition or with a Subscription).

An upgrade option from Photo RAW 2024.5 standard to Photo RAW MAX 2024.5 edition will be available at a later date for those who wish to add plugin capability and ON1 Cloud Sync.

What are the benefits of subscribing instead of purchasing a license to own outright?

Subscribers get all of the ON1 apps, plugins, and individual titles now and in the future (including Photo RAW MAX), any new software titles, ON1 Cloud Sync storage, and other first-class benefits. The top-tier ON1 Everything Plus plan adds access to ON1 Plus, all creative extras, 1 TB Cloud Sync, and 5 activations of all software for multiple computers. The lower-tier ON1 Everything plan includes all software apps, plugins, and individual titles now and in the future, 2 software activations, and 200 GB of Cloud Sync (ON1 Plus is not included). Subscribe to ON1 Everything here.

If you purchase a license to own Photo RAW 2024.5 or Photo RAW MAX 2024.5 outright, you will receive all version 2024 software updates, but major Photo RAW upgrades (future years) are not included. The MAX edition license includes full plugin capabilities for other editors (use Photo RAW and all of its tools as plugins), 3 software activations, and 200 GB Cloud Sync storage. The standard edition is for standalone use only with 2 software activations (no plugin capability or Cloud Sync). Individual standalone apps and future titles are not included with a Photo RAW license.

How many computers can I install it on?

The number of installations depends on which package you purchase. Here are the number of activations for each option:

  • ON1 Everything Plus Subscription: 5
  • ON1 Everything Subscription: 2
  • ON1 Photo RAW MAX 2024.5 Edition (Own): 3
  • ON1 Photo RAW 2024.5 (Own): 2

What is ON1 Cloud sync?

ON1 Cloud Sync allows you to sync your photos and settings across multiple computers, tablets, and mobile devices when used with Photo RAW for Mobile (iOS/Android). Both subscription plans include ON1 Cloud Sync (either 1 TB or 200 GB), and the Photo RAW MAX 2024.5 license includes 1-year of Cloud Sync with 200 GB storage (a $59.99 value).

If you purchase a subscription to ON1 Everything or ON1 Everything Plus, your access to ON1 Cloud Sync is ongoing. If you purchase a license to own Photo RAW MAX 2024.5 which includes 1-year of Cloud Sync, the Cloud Sync subscription will end in 1 year with no rebilling. In the future, you will have the option to upgrade to an ON1 Everything subscription, or you may choose to purchase a new Cloud Sync subscription after the 1-year term ends. When Cloud Sync expires, you will not lose any of your photos, but they can no longer be shared and synced across devices.

What is ON1 Plus? How can I get ON1 Plus with my order today?

ON1 Plus is our popular membership community with a massive library of ON1 courses, videos, and special events, with new content delivered every month. Members get unlimited access to our Creative Library to download hundreds of creative extras, and they receive bonus Loyalty Rewards each month. Other first-class benefits include priority support, forums to connect with other ON1 users, tips and tricks videos, Live events, and more.

The most cost-effective way to get ON1 Plus is to subscribe to ON1 Everything Plus which includes all the ON1 apps and plugins, all future software releases, access to ON1 Plus, 1 TB of Cloud Sync storage, and 5 software activations. If you want to order a non-subscription license for Photo RAW 2024.5, Photo RAW MAX 2024.5, or the lower-tier ON1 Everything subscription plan which does not include ON1 Plus, you can add 1-year of ON1 Plus in your cart during checkout or purchase ON1 Plus separately.
