On1PhotoRaw 2017.5! It's the pre-release version for owners of One1PhotoRaw, so expect bugs and hiccups. (I have latest full release, so if I have any issues, I will just reinstall it)

Some of the new features, one of which I had mentioned was missing from On1PhotoRaw.. LENS CORRECTION! That was one of the things that was keeping me from using On1PhotoRaw exclusively as a camera raw editor.


Here is all the new key features:

Compare Mode - Select multiple photos and zoom and pan them at the same time. We feel we took the best features from compare and survey mode and combined them. Finally, you can zoom, pan, and pick the best shots in a series.

Lens Correction - The New Lens Correction pane in version 2017.5 automatically detects your lens and reduces distortion, chromatic
aberration and peripheral fall-off. It automatically applies the correction when you browse to a photo. Further manual adjustments can
also be made in Develop. If there isn't a built-in profile for your lens you can manually adjust it as well.

Stacking Presets - We are bringing back the Insert Preset command so you can stack presets in Effects.

Details Pane - The Sharpening and Noise Reduction panes in Develop are merged into a new Details pane focusing on global corrections for
raw photos. The noise reduction is more powerful and gives you better tools for visualizing your adjustments. If you like the old Noise
Reduction and Sharpening, you can still use them in Effects.

Lightroom Migration - We get requests everyday on the best way to move from Lightroom to ON1. (still twitchy in this pre-release.)

Improved Search - Search using a variety of metadata fields and decide if the search must match all or any of the search criteria. This
is one that we hadn't planned on doing right away but there was so many requests in the ON1 Photo Project we decided to move it up.

Clone Stamp - The powerful clone stamp retouching tool from Layers is now inside of Develop and Effects as part of the non-destructive
workflow.

Improved Preset Management - You can delete and rename preset categories as well as export categories for sharing and backup.
More cameras added, more bug fixes, and more performance upgrades. We will have the details for this during the official launch.

And remember, when On1 installation says KEEP OLDER VERSIONS, it means what it has always meant from years ago; if you're installing an update v10 but still have v9, THAT is the older version it's asking if you to keep. NOT the v10 that is being updated,

This was an image that I knew had issues. Noisy, lighting all over the place because of cloudy skies during a rainy sunrise.

On1 develop the raw image. I made sure I had clipping visible, and reduced the white levels, but not entirely, as it is a sunrise image, so a small bright spot is to be expected. I then went to Lens Correction. On1, like Adobe Camera Raw, picked the wrong lens. The lens used was the Tamron 24-70, but they both seem to want to choose the Sigma 24-70. Easy enough to manually select the Tamron. All distortion and chromatic aberrations gone without any need of extra adjusting.

Noise Reduction: I have to say I am finally satisfied with how On1 handles noise reduction. Used the Luminescence/Details to reduce the noise.

Then I went into EFFECTS. Used Dynamic Contrast, customized setting. Used Local Settings, a brush, to boost the details in the center of the rocks, making a more detailed path to the ocean. Another brush, to darken the clouds just a slight amount to bring out some details. Last was a Local adjustment, gradient, on the rocks to give them a bit of warmth.

Exported high res jpg into Photoshop, resized and watermarked. Saved.

I am quite pleased with the results.
