Leaving Lightroom: ON1 Photo RAW Announced With Lightroom Photo Settings Import Tool

Everyone is looking to take on Lightroom after their move to a cloud-centric subscription based system and ON1 2019 has made the most progress this year with their AI based Lightroom photo settings import tool feature. I have to say I was shocked to see the feature in action, but it looks like exactly what I asked for when I wrote about leaving Lightroom. You can read the press release below or just the key features. I have a huge Lightroom library to import and I can’t wait to see how the import tool works with a few terabytes of RAW files from different cameras.

Announce Campaign Details:
ON1 Photo RAW 2019 with 1 year of ON1 Plus: $129.99
Full Version for NEW customers: $99.99
Upgrade for existing ON1 Product owners: $79.99

Portrait Module
The new Portrait module will automatically detect faces in your photo and will retouch to smooth skin, brighten and sharpen eyes, and whiten teeth.

Focus Stacking
Blend multiple photos at different focus distances to increase depth-of-field.

Auto-Align Layers
Easily combine multiple photos as layers, then automatically align them based on image content.

Text Tool
Perfect for creating posters, adding your byline or adding editing annotations. Easily control font size, color, position, and more, then save to a preset to add the same text overlay to a batch of photos quickly.

Master Keyword List
Now you can see every keyword that you use in a single, searchable list. You can quickly apply, clear, edit, or delete keywords.

Improved Local Adjustments
Local adjustments will be updated to use the raw processing data. This allows for more highlight and shadow details with more tonal range.

Layered HDR Workflow
With the powerful new non-destructive layers you can combine other photos, text, or alternate exposures with your HDR photos. You can even use the powerful masking tools to combine multiple HDR renditions.

Filter Options in Effects
We have added dedicated film grain, curves, and color adjustment filters to Effects. There’s also a new way to select and browse filters.

User Interface
Overall contrast has been reduced to make photos stand out along with a new font to help increase readability. New icons, tabs, and sliders will also take up less visual space.
