Great Video Hudson, the Highlight slider is working well for me, I’ll have to try the focus stacking, one thing I’d like to see is the ability to add a lot more photos when using focus stacking I think right now it’s limited to 14 or 15 photos. The other thing I noticed was when filters are added in effects it opens them closed, I reported this to support and they said it was a bug and that the filters were only supposed to be added closed when you added a preset not individual effect filters and will be fixed in the next update.

And it is reasuring, (despite what has been said, by one of the Prophets of Doom, on the Forums), to see that ON1 is taking Photo Raw forward in inovative ways. The highlight slider and recovery button is an impressive new feature.
My copy is mostly working very well, except for one minor bug that has been reported to ON1 Support.
I am sure that we all hope, that you and your family are also well and weathering the current storm.
Best wishes David Price

Thanks David. Stay safe. We’re hunkered in and finding things to do indoors in the rain. I’ve procured a number of paper airplane design books and it seems to be keeping the little ones excited. 🙂

The new highlight recovery will get me to review a number of my past shots to see the difference and hopefully make improvements on those shots.

I like the demonstration and what you did. with highlights recovery. Is this your normal approach to images? Do you use Curves and Apply to and then not even use the normal siders much. Or do you consider this a personal approach? I mix it up, but I am gradually moving towards the curves more and more as I am begin to understand them with many of my images. I am loving the flexibility of ON1 Raw and keep getting pleasantly surprised what by what can be done. Always look forward to learning more, my glass is only half full.

Ha, in the early days of PS I used masked curve after masked curve after masked curve. Nowadays I mainly use sliders and local adjustments with sliders. 🙂

Great video. Thanks for discussing the Map function. I was not aware of this function before and it will be a lot of fun to use when we are free to go out and not be stuck in our homes. Stay safe and well.

Thanks for this great introduction to the new features of Photo RAW 2020.1, Hudson! You know how to put things in a nutshell! 🙂 I am relieved to know that the issue with filters added in effects being closed by default in 2020.1 has been recognized as a bug (as mentioned by Ron, thanks for that). As the settings of a filter have to be tweaked most of the times it know takes one more click for each filter than we are used to.
In view of the user interface I was quite a bit confused searching for the “filters” pane, now having been renamed to “Advanced Search” which works like a charm.
Also the details you presented show how the software is being improved from version to version. Lots of features helping us to make the best of our images!
Best regards and take care of yourself!

Hudson, thank you clearing up the “filter” issue, wouldn’t have thought to go into Advanced Search.
Love your straight forward teaching methods. Easy as always to grasp and follow along.
I don’t know how old your youngsters are but I heard if you give them a roll of masking tape and allow them to build roads, towns, etc on the floors.The tape doesn’t hurt carpet or wood and they will make them from one room to the other for hours.
Stay safe and Healthy

That’s fabulous advice Darlene. They’re 2 (going on 3 in June) and 4 (last February). Wooden train track and legos are constant hazards in the Henry household. 🙂 You stay safe too!
