Everyone who loves photography doesn’t want to spend day after day behind a screen editing them, with ON1 Photo Raw, they take the complicated task of editing your photos and make it easy to edit photos so you can spend more time doing what you love best – taking photos!
Once you have chosen the photo you want to edit, simply choose from one of the modules on the right and begin to easily edit photos.
Let’s start with Develop – Develop is new and that’s where you do all of your RAW processing. Your most common global adjustments occur here right inside of Develop.
The Develop module is where you will see all the power packed into this module right away.
There’s also a fleet of tools on the left – there’s a Crop Tool, Local Adjustment Brushes, and Retouching Tools.
4 – Let’s grab the “Retouch Brush and see how powerfully that tool is at getting rid of unwanted elements in your photos like dust marks. It’s the perfect spot removal tool!
You can easily add a new sky to this photo and so many other elements as well.
You can add Preset, Filters – In the Effects module, there are over 20 different filters that you can stack up. It works a lot like Develop there’s just a lot more options you can add. You can stack them manually or add the Presets – either way, your photos will be professionally transformed.
You can also choose to use the Auto feature to edit this photo or you can choose to manually edit it.
Below, you can see my manual edits – what an amazing transformation!
I can also choose a specific area of my photo and focus on that section to make edits on. There are so many editing functions to ensure you get your photo just right! One of the really handy features in ON1 Photo RAW are the new local adjustment layers and local adjustment tools.
They are available with both Develop and Effects and shared between the two modules. They allow you to selectively apply edits or effects to certain areas of your photo.
You can see how easily I was able to lighten certain sections of this photo using Local Adjustments – With this module, I can easily choose certain areas of my photo to kick up the exposure, add contrast or saturation so easily. The power is in my hands to be able to make professionally edit photos quickly and easily.
With a few clicks, I was able to lighten the entire left side of this photo. The right side had good exposure, and I was able to hone in on the exact areas that needed an exposure bump. Now, I’m ready to add some saturation and adjust the contrast.
In this photo, I wanted to bump up the saturation in the flowers and increase the exposure of the entire left side of the photo. I was able to do this with a few clicks. That’s one of the reasons I appreciate and rely on ON1. It’s the best program to easily edit photos!
With an entire database of Presets, I can easily transform my photo into a black and white aged work of art. Amazing!

The Effects module in ON1 Photo RAW picks up where Develop leaves off. It gives much more control with how you can apply effects to your photo. It includes hundreds of presets and filters to create any look or style you want with one app.
I was so excited to see how easy it is to preview different vignettes with the preview feature. There are so many stunning options to take your photos to the next level with one simple click.
