On1 PhotoRaw 23 and Fuji .RAF to .DNG



  • Don Maclean

    Currently there are issues with RAF to DNG in Photo AI. You cannot run as a plugin, BTW it says so in the Photo AI documentation, but you can send a TIFF, PNG or JPEG to Photo AI to be processed from the Edit in option in Photo RAW.

    The first thing you should do is the Delete Settings File function to see if that will clear up the problem of only half the image being displayed.

    Yes, you can use most Topaz products with Photo RAW as a plug-in. From page 8 in the User Guide:

    ON1 Photo RAW 2023 has the capability to run many plugins created for use with Adobe Photoshop, even if you don’t have Photoshop installed on your system. When you process an image in the Edit module, and want to run it through a plugin, you are creating a new layer in your image document.

    To set up Photo RAW to use Photoshop plugins, you open Photo RAW’s Preferences and click on the Plug- ins tab. There, you can open Photo RAW’s default folder for Photoshop plugins and copy the plugins to that location, or you can select a secondary folder that contains plugin files, by clicking the Choose button. You’ll have to restart Photo RAW for the plugins to become available; once active, you can open a photo in the plugin by choosing Filters from the Layers menu in the Edit module. Photo RAW will launch the plugin; once you’re done, and the plugin returns the edited photo to Photo RAW, it will appear as a new layer, where you can apply any of the Edit module’s functions.

    To learn about working with the Layers feature in Photo RAW, see page 190.

    The trick is to find the actual plug-in files for your Topaz program. I don't know where to find them on a Windows system but on a Mac it is buried inside the program's package. Right-click on the program and choose the command Show Package Contents. Now find the Resources > PS_Plugins folder. Copy the .plugin file to Photo RAW's PhotoshopPlugins folder as described above.

    Thanks for the prompt replies. I will try the suggested fixes.

    I use Photo AI all the time, it works great with Photo Raw.

    If you're resizing in Photo AI, Photo Raw may not detect the new size automatically and therefore thinks the photo is a different size than it is. Try updating the metadata so Photo Raw has the correct pixel dimensions to work with.
