The photo browser built into ON1 Photo RAW is fast and intuitive. In this video, I'll give you the guided tour the Browse module.

I spend most of my time in the Develop & Effects modules crafting the looks for my photos. In this video, I explain how these modules are organized, the difference between filters and local adjustments, and the key differences between Develop and Effects.

3. Beginner Workflow

The presets in ON1 Photo RAW transform your photo with a single click. There are dozens to choose from. In this video, I'll show you how to apply a preset to your images. I’ll also show you how to fine tune a preset to shape it to your exact taste.

Presets are great to jumpstart your processing. There are times, however, when you want more control. I’ll show you how to craft your own signature look from the ground up in Develop & Effects. I’ll also show you the retouch tools in Photo RAW and introduce the gradient masking tools.

The features in ON1 Photo RAW run deep. Basic masks are just the beginning. In this video, I introduce you to the Perfect Brush, ON1’s edge detection masking tool. You’ll also see how masks can be copied and pasted between filters, saving you editing time. You’ll see how complex masks based on color tones or luminance values are easily created.

6. Export

Once your photo is complete, you'll want to share it with the world. In this video, I show you how to export your photo to share with friends & family or on social media. I also explain how to create an export preset to make future exports fast and easy.
