ON1 Photo RAW 2019 can be accessed from within Adobe® Lightroom® Classic CC, providing an integrated, roundtrip workflow of your images.
There are two primary ways to use ON1 Photo RAW 2019 with Lightroom, via the Plug-In Extras command in the File menu and the Edit In command in the Photo menu.
Using the Photo > Edit In menu gives you quick access to the Edit module, while File > Plug-In Extras gives you access to the Edit and Resize modules, and lets you open multiple images inside Photo RAW as individual layers in the Edit module.
USING ‘PLUG-IN EXTRAS’
Accessing ON1 Photo RAW 2019 from the File > Plug-in Extras menu is the preferred way to access the app. It gives you access to all installed modules (except Browse) and has the most flexibility in how the files are handled. To edit an image in ON1 Photo RAW 2019, select the image in Lightroom, go the File menu and select the Plug-In Extras submenu, and choose the place you would like to start. What happens depends upon your selection:
• If you choose Effects, Develop, or Portrait, ON1 Photo RAW will open in that tab within the Edit module, but you can move between the other tabs during your editing session. You can also create layers during this process, but they will be flattened when you return to Lightroom.
• If you choose Resize, you can only work in that module.
• Choosing multiple files and selecting “Open as Layers” will create a layered document inside Photo RAW’s Edit module. Because layered documents inside Photo RAW cannot be read in other apps, Photo RAW will create a new layered, .onphoto file and save that to the original folder as the base layer images.
File Creation Characteristics When Using Plug-In Extras
When you use ON1 Photo RAW 2019 through the Plug-In Extras menu there are important file-handling options that are controlled in the Files tab of the Photo RAW Preferences dialog. These need to be configured in advance, based on your desired workflow. Once these are set, all images sent to Photo RAW 2019 via the Plug-In Extras submenu will use these characteristics:
• File Format: The file type drop-down menu determines what type of file will be created. The default is PSD, which maintains layers. You can also select JPG or TIFF, if you prefer those formats and are not concerned about maintaining layers.
• Color Space: The color space drop-down menu determines what RGB working color space is used; Adobe RGB 1998, sRGB or ProPhoto RGB.
• Bit Depth: The bit-depth drop-down menu determines the bit depth, either 8 or 16 bits per pixel.
• Resolution: The resolution drop-down menu determines the resolution of the file
USING ‘EDIT IN’ FROM LIGHTROOM
For quick editing of photos in Develop, Effects, Portrait or Resize, select your image in Lightroom, go to the Photo menu and select the Edit In submenu and choose the module you wish to work in. If you choose any of the Edit module tabs from the menu, you’ll be able to move between the other tabs during your editing session inside Photo RAW. The editing conditions when using Photo > Edit in are the same as those when you use the File > Plug-In Extras. Any layered files created via this method will be flattened when you quit Photo RAW.
File Creation Characteristics When Using Edit In
When you use the Photo > Edit In submenu, Lightroom will ask you each time how you wish to edit the selected image. You have three editing options—Edit a Copy with Lightroom Adjustments, which makes a copy of the file that includes any edits you have made in the photo; Edit a Copy, which copies the original photo without any changes made in Lightroom; or Edit Original, which is not available if the photo being sent to ON1 Photo is a raw file. You can also set the file type (TIFF, Photoshop or JPEG), the color space and bit depth for the resultant file.
If you are a Lightroom user and you wish to make ON1 Photo RAW your primary editing application, you can use our Lightroom Migration Assistant to transfer most of your catalog settings and metadata from Lightroom into Photo RAW. You can even—with a few caveats—transfer photos that have been edited in Lightroom so that they appear inside ON1 Photo with corresponding (non-destructive) edits applied to them. And, it does this without changing any of the original files in your Lightroom catalog, or the catalog itself. Instead, we use machine learning to migrate the actual Lightroom edits in a re-editable, nondestructive way.
