"We will continue to innovate and add even more state-of-the art technologies as Photo RAW becomes the editor of choice for all photographers"
I sure wish you luck. But right now, it seems marketing is overuling engineering, with the "If it compiles, ship it" mentality.
New features are being added while the code is not up to par. On my computer, while idle with a photo directory loaded, my cpu's usage hovers over 50%. Same situation with Lightroom and the CPU is at 5% or below. Others report endless crashing even with the 2019.1 update.
For ON1 Photo RAW to become the editor of choice for photographers, it will need features available only in Photoshop. Right now, most LR users have Photoshop, eiher on the subscription model or those still using LR6 may have an older but still working CS* PSP.
Two features sorely missing from ON1 Photo RAW, if one is to abandon LR and PSP are:
1- The ability to adjust canvas size
2- The ability to put two or more images side by side on a blank image.
Adobe has the subscription model. Others, such as ON1 are on the pay as you go model, but with yearly updates, all are set to extract an annual amount of money from their users.
I have LR6 and CS6 plus ON1 Photo RAW 2019.1 I'm still undecided as to what I will keep. Or if I should go with Adobe's subscription's model. An improvement in the existing code of ON1 would make my decision easier, more so than new features, for which I can wait. A new features roadmap would be nice...
