What’s Ahead for ON1
Looking ahead ON1 is investing heavily in DAM and expanding the Photoshop-like feature set in Photo RAW (as well as a few other tricks they aren’t quite ready to share publicly). ON1 now has a new, modern code base which will enable them to continue to deliver the features photographers want. There will be several new and free updates next year which are already in the works.
