ON1 Releases Photo Raw 2021 Share This on LinkedIn   Tweet This   Forward This

2 November 2020

On1 has released Photo Raw 2021 featuring a photo organizer, Raw processor, layered editor and special effects.

"We've been developing photography software for more than 15 years," said Craig Keudell, President of ON1. "From this experience, we've heard of every cool filter effect, feature request and all the challenges from every type of photographer.

"Our approach with Photo Raw for desktop and mobile sets us apart from the other photography software companies. The ON1 solution is a single app experience that delivers professional quality results across all your computers and mobile devices, while keeping you in control of every aspect of your photo passion. No longer do you have to hassle with multiple software apps, forced storage locations or required software subscriptions to create your photographic vision."


The new release features:

  • New ON1 Portrait AI
    The new Portrait AI tab inside Edit uses machine learning to find every face in your photo and analyzes each face to enhance the skin, eyes and mouth.
  • New Smart Organize
    The New Smart Organize mode in Browse finds duplicates and groups photos that have similar appearance, location or time.
  • New Spot Healing Brush
    The new brush can remove dust spots, power-lines and unwanted people from your photos. It maintains full non-destructive adjustments for each spot you remove.
  • New Custom Brush Shapes
    Choose from a variety of custom brush shapes or import your own.
  • New Plugin Support for Affinity Photo and Corel PaintShop Pro
    Extend your workflow in Affinity Photo and Corel PaintShop Pro by accessing Develop, Effects and Portrait inside the apps you use. Capture One support coming soon.
  • New Quick Slideshow
    Quick Slideshow provides a full-screen slideshow complete with adjustable delay and a dissolve transition.
  • New Camera Based Presets
    Automatically apply a preset to any new photos from a specific camera.
  • New Color-Sensitive Gradient Masks
    Combine the color-sensitive power of the Perfect Brush with gradient masks to detect the color under the gradient and apply the mask to only that adjustable color range.
  • New Batch HDR and Pano
    Organize your brackets into sub-folders, then let Browse build your new HDR and panos for you.
  • New User Interface Improvements
    Common controls like sliders have more precision and a longer area for more descriptive labels. Layers and the Edit module tabs don't scroll out of view on a small display or when you have a large stack of filters.
  • New Color Fill Layers
    Color fill layers are back on the Layers pane.
  • New Replace Color Filter
    Change the color of an object to any new color.
