    You won't be able to do this in 2019 beta yet. You'll need to adjust the canvas size and I don't see that option in the menus. The final release should have it but for now you can't.

    If you want to do it in 2018 I can figure out workflow for you, otherwise you'll have to wait for the 2019 release.

    Keep in mind that Photo Raw was not designed to do this kind of thing, while you can probably make it work it will not be as easy as having a layout to drop photos in to.

    Maybe a stupid answer, but isn't it a matter of taking an (empty) image of the right dimensions, open it in ON1 Photo RAW and add your photos to it in the Layers module?

    You can probably find a (free) tool to create the empty image on the internet.

    That is what I have done before Frank. I used MS Paint (how simple is that?).

    I don't know what an empty image would be, but you can make an empty canvas in Layers. Just open any image (because there is no option to create a canvas) use the move tool to make the image very small and off to the side, use the crop to crop OUT the image and leave a blank canvas. After that you can resize the canvas to whatever you want.

    If you save the empty canvas as an image, you have an empty image. But it may be simpler & faster to use another tool (e.g. MS Paint, as Kevin does) to create an empty image. @Rick: now you know what an empty image is ;-)

    Frank, I'll have to try that. I can see that if you're going to be needing it often, it might come in handy.

    As for MS paint, the question was not 'What tool is best for this' it was 'How do I do this in On1' .

    I do a lot of editing on IR B&W images and my working knowledge of layers is very minimal. I created solid color images of various shades of gray (black, shadow, medium, upper tones and white) and added them in as textures. I use them in Effects (textures) with the blending mode set to overlay and can use them to adjust the various tonal ranges. I think it is pretty much like what I could do in layers. And being an effects filter, I can use all of the other tweaking things such as masks, etc.

    That is where I learned to use MS Paint to create images...

    @Kevin: Excellent tips! I really like your approach of having color layers by using texture images, instead of layers.

    @Rick: MS Paint is just an example of creating a color image. It is not about the best tool to create them, it is how to apply them in ON1 to achieve your goal (composing multiple images on an A4 page, adding blending layer, etc.).

    If it is a book you are creating there are products like BookWright from Blurb I have used previously. Or another product I use is Designer from Affinity.
