ON1 Photo RAW 2018 released, you can download a free 30-day trial

ON1 Photo RAW 2018 or Mac and Windows is now officially released and you can now download a free 30-day trialThe new version includes several key updates and enhancements:

  • ON1 HDR – Create stunning HDR photos that merge all tonality from a bracket of photos in a fraction of the time (test results have shown up to seven times faster than other HDR apps).  Automatically aligns photos and removes ghosting from motion between exposures. Includes full non-destructive editing with natural results and can be turned up to 11 for a surreal look.
  • Pano Stitching Combine multiple photos into a single panoramic or matrix photo. Automatically aligns photos, even if they are not shot on a tripod, and blends them together seamlessly. An option to embed panoramic metadata for Facebook panning is also available.
  • Global Mask Editing Tools – These include new mask Density and Feather sliders to allow for changing the density or opacity of masks as well as blur masks for softening.
  • Luminosity Mask Updates – Adjust the levels of a mask to increase the contrast or brightness as well as set a tonal window to only affect a certain zone.  These updates allow users to target just the area they want, based on the photo.
  • Color Range Masks – Create a mask from a color range selection.
  • Blur and Chisel Mask Tools – In ON1 Effects, the Blur and Chisel mask tools are now included. The blur tool is perfect for softening or feathering a mask selectively. The Chisel tool lets the user push or pull the edge selectively, to remove halos. All of these new masking options are re-editable and non-destructive.
  • Versions — Versions are virtual copies of the same photo. Each version created can include non-destructive settings, including crop, retouching and adjustments. Versions work just like any other photo without taking up more space on your computer. 
  • Updated UI — Clean and modern UI where your photo is the center of attention. Custom name filters and layers to easier keep track of work. Also select your own UI accent color.
  • Paint with Color Brush — Painting with color can be a solid color, perfect for skin smoothing and making annotation layers, or paint with just the color and leave the underlying luminosity in place to change the color of objects like eyes.
  • Selectively Add or Remove Noise — Brush away noise in areas like skies or add noise for an artistic effect.
  • Improved Highlight Recovery –– The algorithms for highlight recovery have been improved.
  • ON1 Photo for Mobile — Take the best shots with you on the go with the free ON1 Photo for Mobile app. It’s a great way to share portfolios. It can also sync new photos taken on phones back to the desktop so those photos are ready for editing.
  • Additional Camera & Lens Support — Added support for the Nikon D850, Olympus EM-10 III, Panasonic DMC-G85, preliminary support for Sony a7R III, plus a ton of new lenses.

    The more the merrier…
    The more Lightroom alternatives the better for us the users …

    ON1, Luminar, the upcoming Affinity DAM…

    You know, I’m kind of happy that Lightroom is turning into a web app for smartphones. It creates space for new, healthier competitors without dodgy practices like no-opt-out subscriptions.

    I wonder if Adobe eventually introduces micro transactions and loot boxes with filters and stock images.

    “There’s no problem – all the filters and images are entirely cosmetic!”

    • TurtleCat

      Well, Affinity is on record now saying they aren’t doing a DAM. At least not anytime soon. It’s a shame since they said 2 years ago it would be ready now. If they had completed it, now would be the perfect time to release it.

      I’ve got a permanent LR6 license but for now I purged all Adobe stuff from my computer. Would love to see a good alternative for the cataloguing.

        Could you give a proof link? cause I don’t seem to be able to find one.

        • It was on Twitter, I’ve seen it but I don’t remember in which discussion it was.

  • Nikkor300f4VR

    Gooodbye, Adobe!

  • Great post. You are the best.
