I thought I had figured out Importing from an SD Card. In Browse, I had checked Group Raw Plus JPG. I selected the images I wanted to Import into a Folder in my PicturesFolder on my Hard Drive. (MacBook-High Sierra 10.13.6).
Instead of just the Raw files, I got everything including .jpg files and xmp files in my On 1 Raw Catalogued Folder. I must have missed something.
What is the best way to just Import1 image of my selected photos so I can begin to edit from there?
I don't use jpg with my RAW, so I can't test that for you. It's possible On1's import selects the Raw and all of it's associated files automatically.
Group Raw Plus JPG does not affect import at all, what it does is just stack the RAW and jpg together in browse to tidy it up. It's just a viewing option.
On1's import doesn't actually import anything. It's mainly a utility to copy your files, rename and add tags for you. These are all things you can do for yourself in On1 if you prefer.
As long as you point On1s browser to your photo folder on your PC, you will be able to access and edit your photos. It doesn't matter how they got to that location. So basicly you have 3 ways to move your photos:
- On1 Import for full automation but leaves a copy behind
- On1 browsers drag and drop which will move (not copy) and also move sidecars for you
- Your PCs file explorer to do it your own way
Let me know If I've missed something.0
Thanks Rick for clearing that up for me. So I am now planning to use the 1st of your options and make Albums of the photos I want to Edit in On 1, from the Catalogued Folder that I "Imported" them into.0
No, catalogs are a whole different thing. Import only works with files on your PC, not in catalogs or albums. I'm beginning to wonder if when you say "Import" you actually are referring to On1's import utility. The import utility is on the file menu in browse 4th item down. If that's not what you're doing, then I'm giving you wrong information.
Have you read about Import on page 46 of the user manual?0
Hi Rick, Yes, I used File > Import(4th item), so we're on the same page there. And my On1 Photo Raw 2018 User Guide, Page 46, continues the Chapter - Creating Panoramas - Do you use a newer manual? Page 6 - 7 refers to exporting files as .jpg files to a Folder on my Desktop which is what I did from Effects. (I think it's different from Layers.)
This is what worked for me: From the Catalogued Folder in On 1 I clicked Import to Import my selected photos into On1. Then I rated the Raw images I wanted to Edit with 1 Star and used FILTER to see only those 1 star rated Raw images. See my SS.
I Selected these 1 Star images and put them into an Album I named 2018 CO Cattle by Fence. It showed up in the 3rd Row, Left with its original name. See below:
I edited 1 of these images then successfully Exported it to a Desktop Folder.0
Hey mary Jo, you got me wondering if I had missed an update to the user manual and I did. We're both using outdated manuals (yours is older than mine). I guess I'll need to be more specific now when I mention the guides. I've updated now and on the very last page is...
- Revision 3.1, August 2018 (Version 2018.5); updated Mac OS system requirements
You can get the updated user guide here...
If you're using Adobe Acrobat or equivalent to veiw the Guide, don't forget that you can use the search to scan the whole document for you to help you find something.
As for your procedure, I don't think it matters if you were in a cataloged folder when starting import, you could have started it from anywhere in browse. The rest of the procedure is fine and glad to see you're using Albums and Filters.0
Thanks Rick for the link and info. And for the critique.
One thing - my last page says Revision 1, October 2018, Ver.2018.0 and I'm using High Sierra. Maybe that's the difference???0
That's strange. Why would it say October and yet be a lesser version nunber.
Are you looking at the ON1 Photo RAW 2018 User Guide ?
Where did you get it from?0
Hi Rick, Yes. I've asked On1 Support but haven't gotten an answer yet.
ON1 Photo RAW 2018
Could it be different for PC and Mac?0
I'm not aware that there are two different versions. My user guide covers both Windows and Mac. Also, how could it be October 2018 when we're not there yet?
Is this the version that you get from the site that I posted?0
Mary Jo, Rick,
They sneaked one in on us Rick. I just downloaded the first file listed in your link and sure enough it says Revision 3.1 August 2018. The one I got a while back says Revision 3.0
I am using an online compare utility to see if I can see what was updated.
They changed the Mac Opsys version in the table at the beginning.
Starting on page 144, the changed the references everywhere "Filenames" to "Rename", added the Date field to the rename options.
That is about it. Looks like basically correcting the document to match the software.0
Kevin, the 3.1 is what I posted 7 messages back. Whats confusing is that Mary Jo says she has
Revision 1, October 2018, Ver.2018.0
October is next month but the version is not 2018.5, it's 2018.00
Thanks Rick and Kevin. I linked to it from your posting, Rick.0
What you downloaded is the original 2018 document. I have that one from whenever that was posted. I opened it and it does indeed say Revision 1, October 2018 (Version 2018.0) and I think that really should have said October 2017, because that file is dated 11/20170
Finally, an answer. Thanks Kevin.1
Your welcome. Thank you Rick for answering so many posts in these forums.0
Great! Now how do I get the latest User Manual?0
Mary Jo, I told you that 5 hours ago. Scroll back to the post after your photos. There's a link.
I thought you said you had it. I'm confused... again.0
