ON1 has released a 2021.1 update to ON1 Photo RAW which brings a number of small enhancements rather than any major changes. If you launch ON1 Photo RAW 2021, you’ll be prompted to download and install the update automatically.
ON1 says the face detection in ON1 Portrait AI is now faster and more accurate, with the ability to brighten up the eye area with a single slider and improve shine reduction to restore natural looking skin tones in overexposed areas.
If you like working with brushes, you can now import Adobe .ABR brush reset files, a common format for brushes bought or downloaded online, and when you import images from a phone, camera or memory card you can now opt to ignore suspected duplicates.
Other improvements include more easily reset adjustment sliders – just double-click on them to restore the default value – and automatic adjustments can be disabled for RAW files.
Three new camera RAW files are supported in this update:
- Nikon Z6 II
- Nikon Z7 II
- Leica SL2-S
New lens profiles have been added for:
- Canon EF 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6
- Canon EF-M 28mm f/3.5 Macro IS STM
- Canon RF70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM
- LEICA SUMMILUX 1:1.7/28 ASPH
- NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S
- NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR
- NIKKOR Z DX 16-50mm f/3.5-6.3 VR
- Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D IF
- Nikon AF-S Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR
- Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.8G ED,
- Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS
- Tamron E 20mm F2.8 F050
This isn’t a huge update, but it is free and worth installing for existing owners.
