  • That makes sense.  As long as the the old license does not die, that would be okay with me.  Thanks for the explanation. Hector
  • Can you can revert back to the none subscription license if you decide to cancel the subscription? Hector
  • Replied in Luminar 4
    The general consensus is that it's slow and somewhat buggy. Some people love it while other don't like it. It may depend what you expect from it. The only way to be sure is to test it yourself. ...
  • I have tried many alternative and ACDsee is the strongest when it comes to keywording and tagging.  As far as workflow you may want to download the trail to test it yourself. Avoid On1 Photo Raw ...
  • That's not good business to completely disable the software.  If they think that pushing subscription that way at the same time going head to head against Adobe is going to work well for them, I ...
  • Good to hear you found a software you like. I'm surprised to see the NR in Elements being that good. I was a Elements user a while back (4 versions and ~7 years) before I moved to Lightroom. I ...
  • That's a good job you did there.  However, I would not want to spend that much time on a photo.  I will probably go to an external app that will do it for me. Hector
  • That's a bummer. Otherwise, it might have been a good choice for you.  Your choices are getting smaller.  Maybe Capture One 20 or Lightroom Classic if subscription doesn't bother you.  I don't ...
  • My guess is that most people will use plugins for good NR.  I kind of prefer to stay in one environment if possible.  I guess if I have photo that I really like, I'll move to an external app.  I ...
  • Same for me.  I like the performance and tools of DXO but I did not like the interface and the lack of catalog so I went with On1.  On1 has a nice interface a lots of features that attracted me ...
  • Kubilay, I'm assuming you have the latest version install already due to automatic updates, but in case you don't, here is the link where you can get it from. https://on1help.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/a ...
  • I own ON1 Photo RAW (2020.1).  Noise reduction is still poor in my opinion. I avoid using it. Hector
  • Noise reduction in On1 is indeed bad. It's not very effective and it destroys a lot of the details. You can use Topaz DeNoise. There are probably other plugins that will work also. https://help.top ...
  • Your reading too much in to it. All the author is saying is that it's a good value for those looking for an Adobe alternative.

  • Right after the 3rd paragraph in the key takeaways section it clearly states "no subscription".

    Discussing the benefits of "perpetual" license against Adobe's subscription model is not bashing...

  • Both will give you very good results.  If you need a catalog, buy Capture One, otherwise  go with Photoloab since  it cheaper.  Photolab appears to be simplier to use than Capture One.  If you buy ...
  • It's true. The history is only available while you are editing the photo. After that, it gets cleared. I just verified that myself with my On1 2020.1

  • The frequent drive scanning is indeed very odd. I can tell you it's still there in version 2020.1. It seems to occur when you first open On1 and it takes about 10-15 min before it stops. ...

  • I did a quick test using On1 2020 and it seems to keep the layers for me. I don't normally work with layers, so I'm not sure if I'm doing this right. This is what I did: 1. In lightroom (v5), I ...
  • That's not an acceptable response from On1. If they are saying that they'll fix the bug in the next full release it probably mean that we will have to pay for it.  I'll pay for new features but ...
