    There is no problem running new Upgrade versions with older versions. Each year's version includes that year in the program's name so your computer will see it as a brand new, separate program and keep it separate from the older versions. I'm running both right now.

    This is a great tip for every install...is it someplace obvious, and I have missed it? I am fairly new to ON1 so still feeling my way around. When I realized that 2024 was coming, I ordered it and sort of stopped investing in 2023 knowledge, because the previews made clear the changes to the work flow.

    No, it isn't stated any where. Notice I'm referring to the annual Upgrades which introduce that year's new version. Any _updates_ to each year's program will overwrite that older version. Updates are free. Upgrades must be paid for with either an outright purchase or by subscribing to the software.

    Also note that once you start using 2024, those edits are not backward compatible with 2023.

    Good notes about it all, and that important note about edits not being backward compatible. So...I'll need to be careful, but I guess that any 2023 process I open in 2024 and save, will just take me forward, so I don't see the down side. I am in a habit of keeping older versions of some software around for compatibility reasons, and to have a fallback if there are bugs in the new software, but in general, I am move to newer platforms as they are released.

    Richard, my method is to rename the previous install executable prior to installing the newer version; this method takes less hard drive space than running multiple versions.

    That is not true. Renaming the existing program will do nothing to change the amount of disk space required to hold both versions of the program and is entirely needless. As I mentioned above, each new year's Upgrade has a brand new name and installs a completely new program leaving the existing version in place regardless of its name.

    ON1 2024 install, configuration and settings, loading assets. I wonder if the ON1 team and beta testers have produced a 'hints and tips' sheet to guide users through the process of configuration and settings based on their experience of trialling the new application. This thought came to mind when Jim Nix posted a YouTube video about setting the white balance to 'auto' in the Brilliance AI settings dialog, without which you can't adjust the colour slider. Simple point, but easily missed and I'm sure there's a whole bunch of similar tips and hints that could be passed on to us newbies.

    Well, the biggest change is the UI.  Totally new way of working with masks as they now bring up a window with all of the settings in that window including invert, copy, paste and the feathering etc.

    Note also that Brilliance AI also has its own set of preferences.  For my workflow I like to turn its overall effect down to 75% and leave auto apply local adjustments off.  Then when I open a photo I can click on Brilliance AI and see what it looks like or try good ole Auto AI.  Then click on enable local adjustments and see what it does and either tweak it or dump it.  That's a start anyway.

    Like your initial edit approach Keith...Brilliance AI is coming up a bit extreme in contrast and colour, but I expect that will suit some images and some photographers style. PR2024 still gives full control if you care too dig deeper and enjoy editing. 

    So far have no complaints I just need too determine my workflow going forward.

    Pleased it's gotten faster but does appear to be mote processor hungry, but hey its posted there's a lot going on.
