  • Wondering how you set capture-exposure, and cull your images using FRV. Here's how I do it: I set nominal camera exposure based on (jpeg) histogram, zebra, etc, biased to the right. Then I bracket ...
  • Created discussion thread Anyone Using "FastRawViewer"
    Anyone using this software on a regular basis to cull photos? Seems like a compelling idea to choose images based on raw histogram and data (rather than on an embedded jpeg).  A bit of extra work.  ...
  • 11.1.0.3613 was an unexpected quick release. Made available just a couple of weeks after their well advertised prior release (the one you have).. Probably corrects an undisclosed oversight in ...
  • When editing a raw file, On1 keeps a list of edits and applies them to the raw file.  This is the edited image that appears in Browse.  The unedited raw file can always be recovered by removing ...
  • Reset edits back to original, and tried again.  Better, but still some lag between edit adjust and view.  Perhaps the result of my comprehensive edit -- 8 filters, 3 masks, plus crop, straighten, ...
  • Created discussion thread Problems with latest On1 RAW release
    Just upgraded to latest release of On1 RAW. Not good! Sent On1 Support the following: "Latest release (3613) is a disaster! Can take as long as 30 sec to open my edited raw from Browse into ...
  • I agree completely! Both of the points you make really bother me about On1
  • Never happened to me, but might relate to PC vs MAC, cpu, graphics card, display resolution, etc. For sure, On1 (and many others in the software business) seems not to spend much time ...
  • Not sure I understand your comment. When opening an image in Develop there is a crop tool available that works just fine.  In the latest version Crop has been fixed to also work with an image that ...
  • Good questions.  My answers are: 1. Still some problems with "Perfect Eraser" (although much improved).  Nowhere as good as the PS equivalent.   Unpredictable results with the "Export" function.  ...
  • Thanks As I said, works that way for me on W7 desktop, but not on W10 laptop.  Perhaps its the screen res or the graphics that makes the difference.
  • Upon a closer look, these features are not included in the Faststone Full Screen panel of my W10 Laptop, but are included in the Browser drop-down menu. Confusing.
  • Created discussion thread A Faststone Question
    Just downloaded Faststone 6.2 onto my laptop running W10.  Looks slightly different that the same version on my desktop under W7: - do not see any Noise Reduction routine - do no see Red Eye Removal ...
  • Can delete a Preset, but not a Preset folder.  Results in many empty Preset folders.  Also, cannot rename a Preset folder. A real problem since cannot judge the value or action of a preset until ...
  • Software update installed.  Prior copy deleted. Played just a bit and all seemed to work fine (certainly no worse than prior release).  More testing planned over the next few days.  Fingers crossed. ...
  • Created discussion thread New Release of On1 Photo RAW Available
    Just made available today is a new (maintenance) release of On1-Photo RAW.  Some new features and fixes, but comes with the apology that many features we were expecting are taking longer thanplanned. ...
  • It all starts with your image capture.  There is no substitute for good exposure, good focus, good glass, etc. Even the best software cannot create new information; and software processing will ...
  • Thanks -- I saw your note on this and have already installed (and registered) it.  Runs just fine. Looks like a very comprehensive and well designed program.  Fine for graphics work, but wondering ...
  • Thanks all for the download and registration link.  I've downloaded and registered, but not yet installed.  Looks like an interesting product, but might be overkill for my needs (which are to ...
  • Next (3rd) release is due in mid-April -- fingers crossed. Sort of irks me that they call this a "free update" as though On1 were providing some unexpected benefit to their customers. On1 needs to ...
