What's New In Photo RAW 2018.5?

You said a ton of features, Scott. So... what features are new in the 2018.5 release? Here is the rundown:

 
  • Camera Profiles
  • LUTs in Effects
  • Improved Brushing Performance
  • Faster culling in Filmstrip
  • RAW+JPG sorting options
  • Nested Albums
  • Background Export
  • Nested Presets
  • Transform Tool Improvements
  • Faster Transitions Between modules
  • Out-of-Process Cataloging
  • New Cameras & Lenses
 

My personal favorites are Background Export, Camera Profiles, and the new LUTs Effects filter. Nested Presets runs a close fourth - it is so nice collecting all of my personal presets into a tidy little hierarchy all my own. The gang over at ON1 tell me there is a lot more coming in the coming weeks. In the press announcement, they teased free LUT preset packs and web community enhancements. As an educator, I appreciate a company that offers plenty of resources to get the most out of the software they sell.

 

What About Your ON1 Photo RAW Essentials Book, Scott?

Yes! I have updated ON1 Photo RAW Essentials! The 5th Edition covers the new features in 2018.5. I will have the update posted on my store later today. The 5th Edition is a free update to anyone that purchased the 4th Edition through my website. If that's you, you'll receive an email from me soon telling you how to update your copy of the book.

And if you're new to Photo RAW, check out my ON1 Learning Center. I have a free video tutorial series to help you get up and running with Photo RAW. If you like what you see (I think you will), then check the book out.
