Major ON1 Photo RAW update adds tethered shooting, better noise reduction and more
ON1 just released a major update to its photo editing software ON1 Photo RAW. The update, version 2018.1, brings with it a host of feature upgrades, including: better auto-alignment for the HDR mode, improved high ISO noise reduction, and more detailed image sharpening. The update also includes a new tethered shooting function for certain Nikon and Canon DSLRs, as well as a new import utility that allows metadata to be added as images are sucked in from the camera.
Video files can now be seen in the browser, and new sort features allows user to browse imported images in a number of ways, such as by file type, date, file name or rating. Users can also batch rename groups of images, and a date-and-time editing function lets you adjust the recorded moment an image was shot.
Finally, the company has also made some changes to the way images are debayered to improve the amount of micro detail preserved in the final render.
ON1 says its priorities are image quality and processing/handling performance:
“Version 2018.1 isn’t just about the new features, although there are many powerful new additions," says ON1 Director of Product Dan Harlacher. "Image quality and performance are the top priorities in every update, and we are very excited for our customers to experience these improvements for themselves in this update."
New users can take advantage of a free trial, or purchase the software in its entirely (usually $120) for a special limited-time price of $80. If you're already using Photo Raw 2018, the new version is free.
