New Product Announcement : ON1 Photo RAW


728x90

Well, ON1 have done it again and it looks like they've done their research by announcing the soon-to-be-released ON1 Photo RAW. Here's an exerpt from their website about the new product which is available later this year.

"The current class of RAW-based photo editors require photographers to catalog their photos, bounce between apps for editing, and forces them to work within the confines of their ecosystem. They haven't adapted their apps to work efficiently with today's popular 42- and 50-megapixel cameras. For years photographers have been asking us for a super fast RAW processor and non-destructive photo editor without the painful import process. This is ON1 Photo RAW. In development for years, ON1 Photo RAW will be the first RAW processor released in more than a decade and feature a new modern RAW processing engine, tuned for today's sensors and graphics chips. Combined with our current set of tools, ON1 Photo RAW will bring photographers the world's fastest, most flexible, and easiest to use RAW processor and photo editor available. ON1 Photo RAW, the next generation of ON1 Photo 10, will continue to work where you want, as a standalone, a plug-in, or host app for other editing apps.The current class of RAW-based photo editors require photographers to catalog their photos, bounce between apps for editing, and forces them to work within the confines of their ecosystem.

NO IMPORT/CATALOG

PHOTO EFFECTS & RETOUCHING

ALL-IN-ONE

This really looks like a serious competitor to Lightroom and several other RAW converters currently on the market. As this will seamlessly integrate with the ON1 Photo 10 suite we think this will be a winner for many photographers who are looking for a more integrated workflow without having to jump around different apps.

ON1 have come out with a great deal for those that want to pre-order. They are offering ON1 Photo 10.5 (New Version) and ON1 Photo RAW for USD$89.99 until May 6, 2016. This is an awesome deal! For more details click on the banner below.

ON1 Photo Raw is not being released until Spring (Australia) or Fall (US). Either way it'll be sometime later this year.

Stay tuned!

New Release: On1 Photo 10 - ReSize

ON1, Inc. has announced ON1 Resize 10, the latest version of their award winning Genuine Fractals® technology. ON1 Resize 10 has also been added back in ON1 Photo 10.1, a free update for Photo 10 owners. So if you already own On1 Photo 10 then you should receive a link for the update to version 10.1. This version will include the ReSize module. If you do not own the software you can either buy ON1 Photo 10 or just the On1 ReSize 10 standalone app. See Availability & Pricing further down.

ON1 Resize allows photographers to get the highest quality photo enlargements, using Genuine Fractals technology–patented, fractal-based interpolation algorithms—to enlarge photos up to 1000% without the loss of sharpness or detail. Popular features like the gallery wrap and tiling options are included, an overhaul of the user interface, and more.

The Gallery Wrap feature creates extended margins for wrapping photos around wooden stretcher bars when printing to canvas. Photographers can preview the gallery wrap results in real time, allowing them to fine tune their settings speeding up the gallery wrap creation process.

The Tiling Feature gives the ability to divide photos into mosaic tiles for easy printing and proofing. This feature also makes it easier to save and print individual tiles when sending files to a print service provider. It’s also easy to create canvas diptychs, triptychs or mosaics when combined with the gallery wrap feature.

The sharpening methods of ReSize 10 allow photographers to sharpen small details without causing halos on larger, distinct edges. The sharpening methods can target out-of-focus photos and adapt sharpening amounts automatically to the size of image details.

There are also hundreds of presets to help save time. Presets can also be modified and saved for resizing a photo, applying a specific sharpening amount and adding a gallery wrap – in one step. The ability to combine several steps and save a preset is a big benefit for workflow efficiency.

Additional features include batch processing for photos of mixed size, type and orientation, presets for common printer resolutions, presets for panoramic and no-crop sizes, and film grain simulation.
