Is it reasonably easy to make the colours look realistic and natural with ON1 Raw? With Lightroom the colours in the RAW file always look pale and bleached compared to the JPEG that the camera produces. Is there an easy way of telling ON1 Raw to make the colours match those in the JPEG or does it involve spending hours adjusting each colour independently as with Lightroom?cayenne said:So far, I LOVE On1 RAW 2018.
I too have been using LR5 for years and do not want to pay Adobe "rent" for the foreseeable future.
I have enjoyed On1 RAW 2018, the extra features it has, like luminosity masks, and layers and such that LR does NOT have are really valuable to me so far.
The only drawback I found at first with first release of 2018 version...was not having quite the import ease of LR, with being able to set meta data, have it move off my card to main working drive and backup drive, and rename, etc.
HOWEVER, it appears the just released (today?) new version of On 1 RAW 2018.1 version, will address a LOT of those last concerns.
I've not had a chance to do the free update, but if it does as advertised, I think it will end all questions of me maybe buying LR6 before it disappears....and I may just go full on with On1 RAW.
Here's the import features the latest .1 version offers:
Scroll down and see the first video about "Import"....this looks like it will do what I need for LR replacement.
I do need to look a bit more into how On! differentiates between regular folders and "cataloged" folders...which I think the latter offer the same database type access that LR offers.
The thing is, with On1 RAW...you have a choice if you want things database'd or not.....
If this works, it could for me solve any complaints I have had.
As soon as I get the 2018.1 update and have time to play with it, I'll try to remember to come back here and update this thread with my findings.
If you're doing the free trial, you might see if you can update to the .1 trial version....it looks at this point as if this .1 version might be the 'great equalizer'.
