ON1 has released its latest iteration of photo editing software, Photo RAW 2021, which includes new organizational tools, full integration of ON1 Portrait AI, new creative features, workflow enhancements, and several new features in the integrated Photo RAW for Mobile app.
ON1 calls the new Photo RAW 2021 a “hassle-free” professional photo organizer, RAW processor, layered editor, and effects app. Akin to Lightroom, Photo RAW is an all-in-one editing solution for images and is available in either a perpetual license or a subscription service.
ON1 has a large list of upgrades to the 2021 version of its software:
ON1 has added full integration of its ON1 Portrait AI, which finds each face in your photos, analyses them to find the eyes and mouth, and classifies them to apply the correct retouching. ON1 says that it “gives excellent results with minimal effort” by using frequency separation-based skin retouching built into the AI. It can also apparently make more complex adjustments to a face’s shape and even the lighting. Each edit is non-destructive. “The addition of ON1 Portrait AI into ON1 Photo RAW will enable portrait photographers to automatically retouch an entire shoot,” the company said. “Detecting and analyzing each face, then give them best-of-breed control and results for manual retouching when needed.”
Additionally, the software includes a new Spot Healing Brush tool designed to quickly remove dust spots, power-lines, and unwanted people from photos. ON1 says the Spot Healing Brush is not only faster than the current tools available but also maintains full non-destructive adjustments for each area removed.
With the Replace Color Filter, you can easily change the color of an object to any new color. ON1 says it’s ideal for adjusting the color of objects like eyes, flowers, buildings, and apparel.
ON1 added custom brush shapes, allowing you to choose from a variety of custom brush shapes or even import brush collections. The addition of a new flow control in brushing makes building up a mask easier as well.
The new Smart Organize mode quickly finds duplicates or finds and groups photos that have a similar appearance, location, or time.
