What's New in 2017.5 (

This is the fourth maintenance release and second major update with new features for ON1 Photo Raw 2017. We have added a handful of awesome new features based on feedback from users like you. The performance, stability and polish are much improved as well. Here are some of the biggest improvements and fixes:

  • Lens Corrections -- The new Lens Correction pane will automatically detect your lens and reduce distortion, chromatic aberration and peripheral fall-off.
  • Compare Mode -- Select a series of photos and zoom and pan each of them at the same time.
  • Details Pane -- Sharpening and Noise Reduction is improved and has been merged into a new Details Pane for global corrections on Raw photos giving better results in both areas.
  • Improved Search -- Search using a variety of metadata fields and decide if the search must match all or any of the search criteria.
  • Clone Stamp -- The powerful clone stamp retouching tool from Layers is inside Develop and Effects as part of the non-destructive workflow.
  • Stacking Presets in Effects -- The Insert Preset command is now available to stack presets in Effects.
  • Improved Preset Management -- Delete and rename preset categories as well as export categories for sharing and back-up.
  • Lightroom Migration -- Migrate photos, their metadata and collections.
  • Camera Updates -- Added or improved support for: Apple iPad Pro 9.7, Canon EOS T7i/800D/Kiss X9i, Canon EOS M6, Canon EOS 77D/9000D, Fuji X100F (compressed), Huawei Mate 9, Panasonic LX10, Sony NEX5n, Olympus Pen F, Panasonic DC-ZS70/TZ90, Pentax KP, Olympus E-PL3 and Sony Alpha ILCE 9.
