ON1 has updated Photo Raw 2018, its Raw data image editor, with both new features and additional camera and lens profiles.

The video above discusses the performance improvements in the new release. ON1 has published eight other videos highlighting features on the new version.


Among the new features noted in the release notes are:

  • Camera Profiles: Now you can select the same looks you see on the back of your camera right in ON1 Photo Raw. Select from Natural, Portrait, Landscape, etc. depending on what your camera offers. These are not presets, they don't adjust any of the sliders and they are non-destructive.
  • Color LUTs in Effects: Color LUTs or look-up tables are a popular way to add matte, vintage or cinematic color grading looks. Now you can add them inside of Effects. We supply a ton of LUTs to get you started. Plus you can import LUTs in the common .3DL and .CUBE formats that you can find online. They work just like any other filter in Effects. You can stack them, mask them and control the blending options.
  • Improve Brushing Performance: Brushing with the Masking Brush more responsive, especially on Windows computers with large or high-dpi displays.
  • Transform Improvements: The Transform pane in Develop is much improved. With the new options, it is easy to correct perspective and rotation issues. The new grid makes it easier to visualize your results too.
  • Faster Film Strip for Culling: Now using the Filmstrip in Develop and Effects is just as fast as in Browse. You can switch photos instantly! You can even perform your editing and culling tasks, like ratings, labels, rotate and delete, while you are adjusting your Raw processing.
  • Raw+JPG: If you shoot Raw and JPG at the same time, you can now collapse and hide the JPG copy so your library isn't cluttered. Any metadata or file changes you make are mirrored to the JPG seamlessly.
  • Nested Albums: Albums can now be organized just like folders. You can nest albums or photos inside of other albums. Create complex organizations to suit your needs. If you are migrating from Lightroom, your nested albums are brought over with the Lightroom migration assistant.
  • Increased Stability: We are always working to make ON1 Photo Raw faster and more stable. We have made big improvements under the hood to reduce the chance of crashing when we encounter a corrupted photo file.
  • Background Export: Time is money so we want you to be as productive as possible. When you export it now does it's processing in the background so you can continue to work on another job.
  • Nested Presets: We all love presets and collect a ton of them. Now you can organize your presets into a nested category structure to organize them as you like. You can move, rename, delete and nest presets and categories as you see fit.
