Although I participated in the recent 10 minute survey, it felt like it had a lack of "More Comments" than I recall in past surveys.
For instance, the survey asked if we'd like to see an ability to convert to DNG format while in the program. I wouldn't mind this, however, based on reading the blogs and other information over the years, I thought dng files within ON1 were a part of the Keyword problems we suffer from. I wouldn't want something that will add to those problems.
The survey also asked about Automatic Keywording using imaging analysis. I, for one, prefer to control my own keyword list, which seems to be a part of the problem we have with the Keyword module. By that I mean, we don't seem to have the ability to limit the keywords to those we create and are most familiar with. For reasons I'm aware of with regard to the ON1 software, Keywords are added to my list all the time without my input. It's frustrating that this issue can't be resolved.
There was a question with a sliding scale that asked which would we want ON1 techs to work on...the Browse or the Edit side. With the many improvements I've seen in the newest version 2021.5, this is a great program now. However, if Browse means fixing the Keyword issue, I'm all for leaning to the Browse side to get this finally fixed.
The last issue in the survey asked if we wanted to stack groups of photos. I'm not sure where they were going with this issue. However, if they mean taking a series of photos, let's say photos 1--10, that might be used for a PANO or HDR and stacking those contributing photos under one cover photo next to the resulting HDR or PANO, or perhaps stacking them under the HDR or PANO, for organizational purposes in Browse only...I'm all for it. If they are talking about something to do with the Edit module, I'd need more information.
