Recently I purchased the ON1 Photo Raw software. I will post some of the features that are included at no extra charge, and how I can benefit.

I like the water with spray. What timing did you use? There’s a fashion of making waterfalls “milky” with slow shutter speeds!
Cem,Hi Robert, good choice. I use ON1 for a number of years now but only for the Effect part. DxO remains my go-to raw converter. BTW, the photo of you and Anne seems to be over sharpened with haloes??
Welcome once more!
What do you especially like about DXO that’s missing in On1, PS RAW or Capture One?
Or is it just the pay by month taxation that turns you off?
Also what are you using for catalogs?
LR used to be off-putting at the beginning but the process of importing images to your catalog is rather straightforward and there are various ways of doing it. I no longer pay it any attention, you get used to it. ON1 raw, Capture One, DxO all work without the obligatory import step. Perhaps you can consider them as an alternative?This is a very helpful thread.
Great image and editing examples from Robert and many pointers from you!
LR is so unintuitive to me for catalogs after Media Pro for 20 years! So used to simplicity and drag and drop in and out!
Looking forward to your findings, especially any intuitive drag and drop into and from catalogs, if ON1 supports that!
I just realized that I purchased ON1 RAW already! I am puzzled because the video above says that the Plus training is now free, but I didn’t see where anything but paid access has an entrance!
Anyway, looking at the ON1 website they are actually a subscription based software akin to Photoshop, dewing annually instead of monthly but at approx 30% less!
Can I use a fast SSD as a scratch disk as with Photoshop CC?
What are the ABCs of adding images and then making large but loadable easy to handle catalogs?
That’s a wonderful recommendation for file synching. Does it work for cloud storage too?If you are referring to adding images off of your SD cards, it would be a matter of dragging the files from the card into a folder in the Browse tab. I think there is an import dialogue too, but haven't used it.
As for handling large Catalogs, these are not catalogs like LR uses. They are a simple database that keeps track of any folders that you have added to the catalog, and when you add a folder to a catalog Previews are created and stored for quicker loading in the grid. Personally I don’t plan on putting tons of files in one folder - instead smaller numbers of files in many specifically named subfolders that I can access easily and have display quickly through the Search functionality. All data related to editing, layers, masks, etc are stored in sidecar files with each image file. None of this info is stored in the Catalog.
BTW - this is a wonderful free file sync program that i use on my Mac for backing up syncing and updating (compares and only adds new files) TB’s of files from one hard drive to another or from my SSD work drive to my 16TB Main Storage drive, or from my Main Storage drive to the selection of 4TB USB drives that I use for Backups of all files. https://freefilesync.org/
As to using my painfully assembled horde of images, now 24TB, that On1 tutorials recommend putting in one single RAID.
But why do they want us to do that instead of addressing separate hard drives!
