    Only if you have a backup of the .on1 file from before it was trashed. You're probably going to have to edit again.

    Did you try looking for it in your Time Machine backup? The .on1 file etc should be in the same folder as the image. You might have to go back a few time increments in Time Machine to find it.

    Thank you, no. It happened almost immediately after editing.

    BTW, it is weird that after trashing, recovered edits don't work anymore. Afretr all, the on1 file is exaclty the same before and after. Can't understand this

    What kind of editing did you do? Did you add any new Layers that would create a new .onphoto file? If so, your edits were never saved in the original file's .on1 sidecar but they should be in the layered .onphoto file.

    I have a 012.arw. edited. 

    Copied to a 012 copy.arw, edited.

    Now, I opened 012 copy.arw, layered, edited and saved as a 012 copy.on1photo

    Accidentaly trashed 012 copy.arw - damn - recovered file & on1 sidecard. No edits anymore (both are there, readable and writeble)

    So, yes, there is an on1photo file, but editing of the original file was different

    Thank you so much

    If I hadn't trashed the original file, edits would stay there.

    Those edits for 012 copy.arw were never saved in its .on1 file so they aren't actually missing. It is how the program works. If you make edits, add a new Layer, then save your work those original edits are never saved to the original file. They are there in the new .onphoto file of course.

    Before I start adding Layers I ALWAYS save my work so the edits do get saved with the original file.

    "If I hadn't trashed the original file, edits would stay there." NO! Read my post above.
