What’s new in ON1 Photo RAW 2021.1:

  • Enhanced ON1 Portrait AI — Face detection is now much faster and more accurate. We’ve also added the ability to brighten up the region around the eyes with a single slider. Improving the shine reduction has also been a priority, and now you can more aggressively bring natural-looking skin color back to the overexposed shiny areas.
  • Import Adobe Brush Preset Files — Now, you can easily import brushes in the Adobe (.ABR) brush preset file format. Many of the creative brushes available for download or purchase online use this format.
  • Don’t Import Suspected Duplicates — When you use the Import from Device dialog to import/download your photos from a camera, phone, or memory card, Photo RAW keeps track of the photos you have already downloaded and can prevent you from downloading them again, reducing duplicate files.
  • Improved Localized Date and Number Formats — We have improved support for different local preferences for date, time, and number formats.
  • Slider Control Improvements — We made improvements to slider controls based on feedback from our users. Now you can double-click on the slider handle (in addition to the slider label) to reset the slider. You can also click and hold on a slider label to temporarily show the slider at the default, usually off. That makes it work like an on/off preview for any slider.
  • Disable Automatic Adjustments — For RAW Photos, several fail-safe automatic adjustments may be made to improve photo quality. However, these can now be disabled for technical and scientific photography via the preferences.
  • New Cameras for RAW Support — Nikon Z 6 II, Nikon Z 7 II, Leica SL2-S
  • New Lens Profiles —Canon EF 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6, Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM, Canon RF70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM, LEICA SUMMILUX 1:1.7/28 ASPH, NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S, NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR, NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR, Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D IF, Nikon AF-S Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR, Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.8G ED, Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS, Tamron E 20mm F2.8 F050

New in ON1 Photo RAW for Mobile 2021 (iOS, iPadOS, Android):

  • Improved Discoverability for Importing Photos — The import icon has been added to the dock to make it more accessible and discoverable.
