I have a seven year old laptop that began distorting some of my pictures in late 2022. What I would like to do is send a sample raw file to a volunteer who has an up to date computer with ON 1 2023. I would like them to crop the picture and export the photo to a jpg and see how it turns out.
An extreme case was taken with my Canon G7X MK II camera at wide angle. It seems the camera focal length is a factor. Photos taken with a longer zoom (telephoto) are less of a problem and hardly noticeable. The problem photo was tightly cropped resulting in a highly distorted image that is completely useless. Photos taken with my Canon G12 are not a problem.
As a test and workaround, I used the Canon photo editor (DPP) to export the original raw photo to a jpg, then using ON 1 I cropped the Canon jpg and saved it as a new jpg. The result was fine indicating to me that there is clearly a problem with ON 1 and may have to do with the G7X lens correction software in ON 1.
If the photo is cropped and exported in ON 1 on a new computer and the result is good then the problem is likely my hardware, if not then there may be a bug in a newer ON 1 release. I do not see distortion in photos processed in older 2022 versions of ON 1.
Note that there are known issues with the obsolete GPU in my tablet that I can live with. If this test indicates it is a software problem I will report it to ON 1 support and have it addressed.
