By on

New version of ON1 Photo RAW 2019 will be available this November. ON1 Photo RAW 2019 will include tons of improvements to the photo editing workflow and new features.

Version 2019 will include significant updates to both performance and image quality, notable new features like a new non-destructive workflow for layers, Lightroom® photo settings migration, auto-alignment of layers, focus stacking, a new portrait module, a new AI-powered masking tool, a new text tool, new digital asset management updates, and more.

ON1 Photo RAW 2019 will include several free updates over the next year to add new photo organizing and editing features, AI-powered algorithms to enhance workflows, other feature refinements, as well as updates for cameras and lenses. The first free update will arrive right after the initial November release (in December) and will include the new AI-powered tool for creating masks. Here is the first look at two new features coming to ON1 Photo RAW 2019.

New version of ON1 Photo RAW 2019 will be available this November

New Workflow for Layers
Layers will no longer be a separate module. Instead, the power of layers will be accessible within the non-destructive workflow inside of Develop and Effects.

New Lightroom Photo Settings Migration
New AI-powered algorithms will give customers the ability to transfer Lightroom edited photos, keep the non-destructive settings, and move them into ON1 Photo RAW.

Portrait Module
The new Portrait module will automatically detect faces in your photo and will retouch to smooth skin, brighten and sharpen eyes, and whiten teeth.

Focus Stacking
Blend multiple photos at different focus distances to increase depth-of-field.

Auto-Align Layers
Easily combine multiple photos as layers, then automatically align them based on image content.

Text Tool
Perfect for creating posters, adding your byline or adding editing annotations. Easily control font size, color, position, and more, then save to a preset to add the same text overlay to a batch of photos quickly.

Master Keyword List
Now you can see every keyword that you use in a single, searchable list. You can quickly apply, clear, edit, or delete keywords.

Improved Local Adjustments
Local adjustments will be updated to use the raw processing data. This allows for more highlight and shadow details with more tonal range.

Layered HDR Workflow
With the powerful new non-destructive layers you can combine other photos, text, or alternate exposures with your HDR photos. You can even use the powerful masking tools to combine multiple HDR renditions.

Filter Options in Effects
We have added dedicated film grain, curves, and color adjustment filters to Effects. There’s also a new way to select and browse filters.

User Interface
Overall contrast has been reduced to make photos stand out along with a new font to help increase readability. New icons, tabs, and sliders will also take up less visual space.
