Okay – you CAN subscribe to ON1 360 – which gives you connections between your work on your computer and your devices, so you can take advantage of the AMAZING power of On1 on Mobiles!

But even if you just want this amazing app on your desktop and mobile separately, here’s what you get with this upgrade!

New Features in NEW – ON1 Photo RAW 2021 for Computers

  • New Full Integration of ON1 Portrait AI — ON1 Portrait AI finds each face in your photos, analyses them to find the eyes and mouth, and classifies them to apply the correct retouching. It gives excellent results with minimal effort using frequency separation-based skin retouching. It’s also super easy at making more complex adjustments such as face shape and lighting. Each edit is completely non-destructive and re-editable for fine-tuning as well, giving photographers complete control over their final look. The addition of ON1 Portrait AI into ON1 Photo RAW will enable portrait photographers to automatically retouch an entire shoot, detecting and analyzing each face, then give them best-of-breed control and results for manual retouching when needed.
  • New Spot Healing Brush — A new modern approach to removing distractions like dust spots, power-lines, and unwanted people from photos. The Spot Healing Brush is not only faster than current tools; it maintains full non-destructive adjustments for each area removed.
  • New Replace Color Filter — Easily change the color of an object to any new color. It’s perfect for tweaking or changing the color of objects like eyes, flowers, buildings, and apparel.
  • New Custom Brush Shapes — Brushing has taken a quantum-leap in control and creativity. Choose from a variety of custom brush shapes or even import brush collections. The new flow control in brushing makes building up a mask more natural too.
  • New Smart Organize Mode — Take control over cluttered photo archives. Quickly find duplicates or find and group photos that have a similar appearance, location, or time. Smart Organize Mode can help cull photo libraries to find the best photos in a series.
  • New Color-Sensitive Gradient Masks — Combines the new color-sensitive technology with gradient masks. When enabled, it detects the color under the gradient and applies the mask to only that adjustable color range. It makes it a breeze to mask areas like skies while maintaining things like buildings or trees that go into the sky.
  • New Plugin Support — In addition to working as plugins for Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and Apple Photos, ON1 now extends into those using workflows in Affinity Photo, Corel Paint Shop Pro, and Capture One (coming soon). Easy access to ON1 Develop, Effects, and Portrait AI are available right inside these apps as plugins.
  • New Quick Slideshow & Fullscreen Preview — In only one click, launch a full-screen slideshow complete with user-adjustable delay and an elegant dissolve transition. Or use the new full-screen preview mode to maximize your work area on a small screen.
  • New Batch HDR and Pano — Save time by batch processing HDR brackets or panoramas. Organize brackets into sub-folders, then let ON1 Browse build new HDR and panos automatically, a life-saver for real estate photographers.
  • New Color Fill Layers — In ON1 Layers, quickly set a background color for a composite layout. They are also handy when used with the new custom brush shapes for painting in objects like grass, trees, and clouds.
  • New Cameras –– Canon EOS Rebel T8i (850D), Canon EOS R5 (uncompressed only), Canon EOS R6(uncompressed only), Fujifilm X-S10, Leica M10-R, Nikon Z 5, Olympus E-M10 Mark IV, Olympus E-30, Panasonic DC-S5, Panasonic Lumix DC-G100, Sony A7S III, Sony A7c
  • New Lens Profiles –– Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM, Canon G5 X Mark II & compatibles, Canon RF24-105mm F4 L IS USM, NIKON Coolpix P1000, Nikon NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S, Nikon NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S, Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG DN | Art 019, Sony FE 35mm F1.8, Tamron 17-35mm F/2.8-4 Di OSD, Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD (B028), Zeiss Touit 2.8/50M

  • New Syncing between multiple Computers and Mobile devices –– Sync non-destructive masks, local adjustments, effects, presets, and more between your mobile devices and computers, with ON1 Photo RAW 360.
  • New Spot Healing Brush — A new modern approach to removing distractions like dust spots, power-lines, and unwanted people from photos. The Spot Healing Brush is not only faster than current tools; it maintains full non-destructive adjustments for each area removed.
  • New Presets –– A curated collection of the best factory presets to speed up your workflow and get professional results with the hottest looks and styles. Categories for all types of photos from landscapes to portraits, HDR, matte, cinematic looks and much more.
  • New Local Adjustments — Make targeted edits to your photos with powerful masking tools. Apply changes to a portion of your image, and adjust those areas with a full range of tone, color, and sharpening sliders. You can apply these adjustments using either the Adjustment Brush or Masking Bug shapes.
  • New Effects Masking Perfect Brush –– Selectively apply each filter to just the areas you like with the powerful masking tools. Quickly brush around objects of your photo with masking brushes or the adjustable gradients in different shapes.

For Font Fans and Font Freaks

So, I usually don’t pay any attention at all to unsolicited emails, but this one came through a trusted source, so I looked.

She sent me a link to a page that has MORE links. But these links are for Free Commercial Use Fonts.

Caveat: I have not tested all the links on this page, nor have I read all the licensing, but the few I tested link to legitimate sites, and there’s a variety of really excellent fonts on this list, so I had to share.
