use of plug-ins in ON1 Photo RAW 2023 (standalone)

    You have to purchase the plug-ins separately. Or wait for the 2024 Max version to be released. It will have the ability to be used as a plug-in directly.

    Page 8 of the user guide has a section about using Photoshop plugins in Photo Raw. If those 2 plugins work in Photoshop, they MAY also work in Photo Raw. You'll have to try it to be sure.

    This article may also help.

    Hi Brian,

    I am am using ON1 Photo RAW 2023 as my main program and use the TK*  as plugins.

    So in my opinion the anser from Rick Sammartino is the better one.

    As these plugins are for free I will test them.

    Sorry, I misunderstood your question. I read it as you wanted to go the other direction. My apologies. Rick method is the one that will work.

    I use topaz sharpen and very rarely NIKeffects and they work as advertised.

    I wouldn't expect the TK plugins to work with On1 Photo Raw.  With plugins like Nik and Topaz, On1 sends a file to the plugin, the plugin processes the file in some way and sends a modified file back to Photo Raw.  The TK plugins are different.  They're appear to interact directly with Photoshop - while you're in Photoshop - kind of a UI extension.  They depend on specific Photoshop functions (such as Generative Fill) and an extensibility framework that doesn't exist in Photo  Raw or any other photo editor other than Photoshop (as far as I know).

    Disclaimer - I haven't actually tried to use these plugins Photo Raw.  I just checked out the link provided above because I was curious to see what they do.
