On1 Photo RAW 2018 Masking

Following my video demonstrating how to use On1 Photo RAW 2018 to edit a landscape image, I received a few queries about how I used the masks. How do they work and what are all the sliders for? To help answer these questions, I put together another video.

This time, rather than concentrating on the effects, this one concentrates on using the masking tools in On1. I hope this helps video helps you.

Friday Image No. 174

Brighton from the pier.

This week’s image is something completely different.

I spent the first part of the week in Brighton, on the South Coast of the UK. There’s nothing quite like a winter visit to the seaside. This is the first time I have been to Brighton and I loved it.

I did try a few shots whilst I was there but the weather wasn’t conducive. And to be honest, my heart wasn’t in it. I enjoyed taking a few snaps, but what I enjoyed more was playing around with them in post-processing.

If you have visited my YouTube channel in the past couple of days, you might have seen my video using On1 Photo RAW 2018. Following the video, I have been experimenting more with the software and I really like some of the effects. This one uses the Bleach Bypass filter together with some tone and colour adjustments. I think the effect quite suits the clear hard light you see in winter at the seaside.

I hope you have a great weekend.

Best Image Editors Compared: On1 Photo RAW 2018

I just published a new video in my series comparing the best photo editors. This time it’s the turn of On1 Photo RAW 2018. I have used On1 products for many years, but the software never really impressed me. Instead I gravitated to the Nik Collection due to the great results and ease of use.

Despite this I continued to purchase each new version and I’m pleased I have. The software has now matured into an excellent editing tool. It’s very usable and resulting image is free from artefacts. It also provides a great deal of control over the adjustments with the masking tools, which I show in the video.

I won’t say any more as I need to save it for the comparisons video, later in the series.

Enjoy the video.
