This morning, ON1 announced ON1 Photo RAW 2023, an update to its flagship application that features many new AI-powered features. The application is set to ship in October.
These new technologies in Photo RAW 2023 take away the steep learning-curve that come with more traditional ways of editing. Photographers no longer have to deal with the tedious methods of masking, layering, brushing or adjusting when working on specific areas of their photos.
Super Select AI
If you can point, you can make edits and adjustments to your photos that would have taken multiple steps and tools in the past. Super Select AI removes the nuisance of learning new tools to achieve the desired editing results. It will allow photographers to point to an area of the photo, such as the sky, people, objects, background and foreground, and choose a type of effect or enhancement for just that area.
“If there’s a tool that puts version 2023 a step above any other photo editor, it’s Super Select AI. It completely changes how you approach and interact with your photos. It is so simple, you will be able to expand your creativity like never before. The first time you use this tool, you immediately start to wonder about the possibilities Super Select AI presents. And, the results are instant, the speed is incredible! It makes me smile every time I use it. It’s just that good,” says Craig Keudell, ON1 President.
The new version 2023 also includes several other new AI-powered masking technologies. The new Mask AI will automatically segment photos and identify objects like people or animals and regions like the sky, mountains, flora, water and ground. Photographers can then select the areas from a list and apply filters or adjustments with a great-looking mask.
Taking the new AI-segmenting technology a step further, Photo RAW 2023 also includes AI-powered Adaptive Presets. These new subject-aware presets will give photographers one-click solutions to challenging problems like brightening the subject, darkening the sky, or adding detail to foliage.
NoNoise AI meets Tack Sharp AI
ON1 Photo RAW 2023 also takes a leap forward in providing superior image quality. AI-powered state-of-the-art technologies for removing noise, sharpening and upscaling photos will all be in version 2023. ON1 will combine the industry-leading and updated NoNoise AI with an all-new Tack Sharp AI technology. This new tool uses state-of-art machine learning to deblur or sharpen. It will detect and remove motion blur and even save out-of-focus shots.
“Many of these new features will save customers a ton of time. They not only remove the frustration people have with learning something new, but they also give you so much flexibility. Everyone knows that you need to adjust noise reduction and sharpening at the same time, they are a yin and yang balance. Having Tack Sharp be part of NoNoise lets you adjust them together for the best results,” adds Dan Harlacher, VP of Product.
Other new features include a significant update to Quick Mask AI and a new way to add keywords automatically. The new Keyword AI can see hundreds of objects and regions, identify locations, find people, and understand photographic properties, which then become searchable terms to help find photos faster. No one enjoys keywording their photos but everyone wants to find them instantly. Keyword AI will take the pain out of keywording for you.
Lastly, the new version includes a new content-aware crop tool, auto color-fringe reduction, improvements to Sky Swap AI, full screen previews of presets, a new application manager, and new camera and lens support.
