Just installed 2019.5, and it is complete garbage. As soon as I opened On1 Photo Raw 2019.5, my photos look terrible. It appears all the edits I had done using 2019.2 is completely lost. Photos are extremely slow to load. I thought version 2019.1 was slow and unstable, but 2019.5 is even worse. Version 2019.2 was a major improvement from 2019.1 with Olympus ORF files taking 40 s to completely load in the Edit mode. This was bearable for me. But 2019.5 is taking minutes and quite often just crashing. Photos also look terribly pixelated. How can a newer and improved version perform so terribly? It's like using a completely different program that is not fully compatible with Olympus ORF files from Olympus EM5-II. 2019.2 had no issues apart from taking 40 seconds to load.
This 2019.5 version is utterly unusable for me. I have uninstalled version 2019.5. Is there a way for me to re-install 2019.2 as this is by far the best and most stable version for me so far. I have decided that from now on, I will be switching back to Adobe Lightroom. I have wasted nearly two years trying to get familiar with On1 Photo Raw after using Lightroom for 5 years and let the programmers sort out the bugs and issues. However, it's looking like On1 Photoraw is getting worse.
Sorry for the rant. Just needed someplace to let off some steam after trying out 2019.5.
