ON1 Changing Exposure On Its Own

Comments

    On1 is adding a LUT when it opens your images to give you a starting point.

    It uses On1 Standard by default. You can try changing the camera profile ( drop down in tone and color )  or use AI match ( this will try to match the JPEG embedded in the raw data ) or try AI Auto and the program will give you what it thinks is best.  Try experimenting with these options first and see how it goes.

    I see you're using ON1 PR 2019. Have you tried installing On1 PR 2022? Same effect? Why not start experimenting with the latest version?

    You are comparing a DNG file with a jpeg file which doesn't make sense. What's your original file format? RAW or jpg? How did you create the jpeg file? How the DNG?

    There are a couple of things going on here. First, the preview you see in Windows is not the RAW image. It is the embedded jpeg created by the camera. Next, when Photo RAW demosaics the RAW data to present that preview in the Editor, it also applies a Camera Profile to the image so you are still not seeing the actual RAW exposure. There are several profiles you can choose from possibly including a set that mimics the camera's jpeg settings.

    The Camera Profile is actually a LUT that gets applied to the image prior to any editing you choose to do. They can push highlights and shadows over the edge and blow out or block up parts of the photo. The Linear RAW option tells the program to not use any LUT and show the demosaiced image directly. It will look very flat but it will not push the shadows and highlights out of range.

    For future reference, you can drag and drop your image files directly into this comment space and they will be embedded right here for us to view. You don't have to post them elsewhere then add links. Thanks for including them though.

    A couple of additional items.

    What camera are you using?

    Also I see in the screen caps you are using DNG photos my I ask why? Although they are technically a raw file you will get better results using straight from the camera raws. You also lose the AI match option I mentioned earlier?

    The DNG photos are photos I've shot on my iPhone 13 Pro. However, when I go to develop them, I don't have a Camera Profile drop down as above. The Camera Profile drop down is available for any CR2 photos I shot on my EOS Mark III, but not those shot on my phone. Even for my CR2s, I don't appear to have Linear Raw as an option:

    Any way to enable the drop down for my iPhone photos? I think the only options for my phone are DNG and JPG.

    Re: 2019 vs 2022, 2019 is just the version I have. I got it a few years ago when I told myself I'd go through and edit and catalog my pictures, and I'm obviously three years behind on starting that project - so I'm a little hesitant to buy the newest version.

    The iPhone 13 isn't fully supported yet. It is not a Tier 1 camera which means the images are demosaiced using libraries from the OS instead of Photo RAW's engine. Being a Tier 2 camera means that you don't have access to all the features available to Tier 1 cameras and Camera Profile is one of them, sorry.

    The company has announced an update to 2022 for December 20th. Check back with the linked article then to see if support for the iPhone 13 Pro has been added.

    That makes a lot of sense, thanks. I'll look forward to the iPhone 13 being added. Might make the leap to 2022 after all.

    Just to be clear, I do not know if it will be added or not. All we can do is keep our fingers crossed for now.
