Hi All. I earn my living as a photographer and am seriously considering making the switch permanently to On1 Photo Raw. My Adobe subscription was up for renewal so I dumped it and bought Photo Raw 2019. I like what On1 are doing and would rather give my hard earned cash to them rather than Adobe but like others am having issues with 2019 which hopefully will be fixed in the next update.
I just wondered if there are any full time pros out there who made the switch to On1 Photo Raw in one of the earlier releases/versions and have been able to make it work for them and have not felt the need to move back to Adobe. I know likes and dislikes of software are a personal thing but would value any feedback users can give.
I shoot events sometimes and these will often have a short delivery window so speed is important to me. I must admit that despite Lightroom apparently being slow I remedied all my issues with it by upgrading my rig with CPU, RAM and SSDs. It is Adobes subscription model I kind of object to hence why I really want Photo Raw to work for me.
My intention is not to start a heated argument or to pan On1 or Adobe. Just some honest opinions and experiences please. I suppose I just need to know if it is worth my investment in both time and money.
Thanks in advance
