  • Good question! I see that your monitor has a LUT for hardware calibration.  More than one LUT? My BenQ monitor has 3 which are front-panel select-able. (need to make sure my PCs default software ...
  • Replied in Monitor LUT's
    Thanks mclewis.  Good advice. I have 3 LUT settings available, so I've chosen the two that you recommended, and also added one with Native Color Space at the average luminosity  most comfortable ...
  • Replied in LUTS
    LUTs serves a purpose in video which is not needed for stills -- flashbacks, dream sequences, mood changes, etc. A bit like italics in text. Nevertheless LUTs for stills can be the "icing on the ...
  • Best tip for "cataloged folders" is to avoid this feature.  Has always been a performance hog and a source of problems. Primary value of cataloging is for image location.  Can do as well using ...
  • Replied in LUTS
    Simply stated a LUT (Look Up Table) is a mapping between your image's color values, tonality, etc, and a predefined set of values.  Used to add a new coloration (a color grade) to an image.  Used ...
  • Replied in On1 RAW 2019
    Yes it is ! Still has some of the bugs and performance problems of prior releases but things are much improved.  Update is expected in mid-Dec with some new features and (perhaps) some more bug fixes.
  • Created discussion thread Monitor LUT's
    For those with the the ability to write more that one select-able LUT into the hardware of their monitor during calibration, wondering what profiles give the best benefit. I'm especially interested ...
  • Created discussion thread Whatever happened to ....
    .... a recent posting requesting feedback on new AI editing technique?   Upload your photo and see AI at work.  I gave it a try and it did not work very well.  I reported this  back.  Now the ...
  • Same here. Some slight brush lag when using many filters/many masks, but tolerable. Even better  with PR2019 (than with PR2018.5)
  • Possibly an even better offer towards end-of- year. Last December I purchased a $49 one-year subscription to On1 Plus-Pro which included an upgrade to next major release (PR2019).   A very good deal. ...
  • On1 has promised an "AI-based" implementation for some of their masking tools in new PR2019.  Feature is due in a mid-December (2018) update. Not sure if software will use some predictive method to ...
  • I've been an On1 user for many years, and stayed with them in spite of their many problems with early releases of PR2017, 2018.  They seem to have turned the corner with PR2019 and the product is ...
  • Simply do not use that feature ! Use Browse only to review, filter, and select images for editing.  No Albums or Cataloged Folders.  Idea is to avoid indexing images into yet another performance ...
  • For what it's worth -- In prior releases I've noticed that performance tuning and bug fix for PC (Windows) came after all was OK for MAC.  Don't know if this is the case with PR2018.  Also, ...
  • Upon closer reading of the PR2019 announcement: The official version of ON1 Photo RAW 2019  will be trickling out over the next 24 hours, but only to all Plus Pro Members and pre-order purchasers . ...
  • Created discussion thread Official PR2019 Released
    Just received a notice from On1 that "official" PR2019 is now available for download. Comes with a bunch of associated tuts, vids, User Manual.  Generally favorable reviews for PR2019 betas, so ...
  • I believe that if you add images via the "File/Import" menu there are several ways to add date/time (or anything other text) to the photo's metadata or file-name..  If you want to add the ...
  • On1 just released a new beta of PR2019.  Release notes identify more than 100 bugs that have been fixed, and about 40 known bugs remaining.  Hopefully most of these these will be cleared in time ...
  • What I meant to say is that when folks buy into a new image editor (or any other significant product) they generally invest some mental (and emotional) energy.  They need to learn a new interface, ...
  • I think the point being made is that folks buy into a new product (and change their editing workflow, learn a new interface, etc) because they believe that the features being advertised are (will ...
