ON1 Photo Raw - April 2017 release

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the link.  

I've already read many reviews online however I could not find any feedback on the new release from the start of this month (April 2017).

I spent an hour with it yesterday (the just released version from start of April 2017) which is version 11.1.0.3608 and it was a pretty big failure. :(

Performance on my old MacBook Air was so bad on a folder with 6 JPGS in it I had to stop using it (when on this laptop LR and PS both work quite well).

Performance on my iMac workhorse was pretty good but when I exported to PS to do some heavy pixel manipulation it did not export to PS with my edits.  You can export with ON1 edits or without, both did the same thing!   Then I exported to JPG my final edit and my JPG export had only 1/2 of the edits I did!?  Plus there were squares on the image where I did cloning  That part was epic failure.  I reported this last issue I had to ON1 via their website.  Because I could not even export the few images I wanted to work on, I ended up going back to LR to continue this small batch of images.

Thanks for the info.  Since I’ve got used to CaptureOne 10, maybe I won’t even attempt to use ON1.  If I do, I will let you know how it performs on my 2013 iMac (3.4GHz i7, 8Gb RAM) - speed and edits and all.

It seems my copy of ON1 saves and exports the edits without issues.   I exported RAF as JPEG with no edits, then the same file with edits as JPEG, and, finally, the same file as TIFF which was then opened in DXO OpticsPro 11 and exported as JPEG.  I will post the results after I have resized the 3 files to <2Mb.

Several years ago I foolishly purchased and loaded an ON1 photo editing program. It was the worst software mistake I have ever made. The program was so bug ridden and crash prone it was almost unusable and the ON1 company treated their customers as nothing more than spam bait with it seemed almost daily "offers" to upgrade or buy other products but did not respond to any sort of tech question.

i swore then I would never touch another ON1 product regardless of other people's recommendations or reviews and I haven't and won't. 

It seems from the posts above that the quality of ON1 software may not have improved.

ON1 tech support contacted me and asked for more details on my system, for me to send the behind-the-scenes LOG file and detail what I was doing when the problem arose.

They indicated in the email that this is a known bug in the latest release and they are working on it.

AdamW, 

I haven't used the latest version of ON1. I did use the previous one, from December 2016. I found it to be OK for the most part, though it didn't support the XT2 compressed raw import from what I recall. Its algorithms tweaked the files too aggressively though, that is why I didn't pursue it further, it required a level of fine motor skills I couldn't muster. ;)

All the best with your experience, let us know how you make out.

      At long last, my review of Ichikawa software's "SilkyPix Developer Studio Pro v8" has been published on the "Dear Susan" website.
      It gives an overview of SilkyPix and it's features and controls, how to use it, and compares the quality of results with Capture One.
      I have used it for several years on raw files from a number of cameras including Fuji X system, and always found the quality of the results.
      Please take a look at the article and feel free to leave some feedback over at Dear Susan.

      If I'm shooting in RAW and set the camera to one of the Film Simulation modes such as Monochrome or Sepia, will I still have the original RAW image with all the colors etc.?  It seems like it only makes sense that RAW is RAW and I would still have the image as it hit the sensor. 
      Assuming that I do have the RAW file, if I'm using a program such as Adobe Lightroom or ACR, when I download the photo into my computer will the preview show as the film simulation mode or RAW and in either case how do I get the photo to the other state?

      Hello, this is my first post on this forum. I recently got the X-T2 after shooting (Raw only) with the XT-1 for a while, a camera for which i was very happy with the result i was getting. As i am now in a testing phase of the X-T2 i shot strictly  JPEGs over the weekend, using the Kodachrome, Velvia and Acros settings.  
      now, by looking at the results, a lot of them are really not that sharp, and quite a few look like they are "patchy" or noisy - and this is with enough speed, low iso and almost exclusively F2..does anyone have the same experience? or does the JPEG filter process take "over" the image that much that it makes it look almost "animated" in the details
      images were all shot handheld
      looking forward to your thoughts and comments
