  • Why do you feel that "the RAW rendering is awful"? What are the characteristics that make it so? Certainly On1 has some development problems to solve, I thought that all converter de-mosaicing ...
  • Thanks for the confirmation. Very discouraging to see different versions of the same image in Browser, editing, and Export output.  Probably the result of too much content-aware Eraser drain on ...
  • Piglad: Thanks for your input, but not of much value.
  • Try using the "Perfect Eraser" for a substantial edit; then move to Browse then and back again to an edit mode. Totally screwed up in quality and content on my PC
  • The good, the bad, the ugly ? Amazing how few comments there have been on this latest release, compared to prior releases.  Have folks just given up for a while?
  • Thanks Toni. I tend to agree. I'll probably purchase FRV. Digger also looks very good but might be too much of a technical distraction. Any advice on how best to use FRV to select the "best" from a ...
  • Seems to fail for anything beyond small spot removal.  Retouch Brush also a bit screwed up.  Will need to go back to PS for these edits in post-post-processing. Really annoying.  Makes you wonder ...
  • Just had a chance to download and play a bit with 2017.0.2 Better performance.  Tried a complex edit with 8 filters and 3 masks.  Virtually impossible with prior release, but now slows down only ...
  • Interested in hearing from actual users, especially  regarding comparisons with earlier versions. Thanks
  • An easy operation -- Use any editor (PS, FastStone) that allows addition of a canvas (of any color)  "behind" your photo.  Set the canvas for an exact size or, in your case, to extend beyond the ...
  • Replied in New Release
    I have also seen the two problems that you cite, and agree that they are the most serious (to me).  There is also an annoying problem with masking that pops up on occasion. in which the mask adds ...
  • Replied in New Release
    New release (2017.0.2) of RAW scheduled for later this week.  Primarily a bug-fix and performance release.  Claim to fix more than 200 bugs.  Glad to see this second  update rolling out quickly.  ...
  • Your use of FRV is pretty much what I had in mind - a quick check on exposure (and perhaps focus and noise) ho help with further editing. Can you describe exactly what you look for in in deciding ...
  • Well known fact that the process of raw conversion diminishes sharpness in an image.  Jpeg conversion has some degree of sharpening already built in.  For raw conversion, perhaps this is why FRV ...
  • Anything in there about continued availability of ICE ?
  • I shoot mostly in raw format and use PS with various plug-ins (Topaz, Nik, On1) for my editing.  I'd like to re-work my editing around On1-Photo RAW as that product matures. My attraction to FRV is ...
  • Created discussion thread Anyone Using "Fast Raw Viewer"?
    Seems like an interesting product , but wondering if it incorporating it into your workflow really makes a difference in the quality of your edits? Interested in your opinion.
  • Thanks for the "heads-up".
  • I've gotten my answer to Question #2 from On1 Any way to delete Export Presets that are no longer needed? Export presets are stored in the following location: C:\Users\<Your ...
  • Thanks! Very clever; I'll give it a try.
