ON1 just announced the latest update to Photo RAW 2019. Version 2019.2 brings a new AI-powered masking feature and new performance enhancements.
The new AI Quick Mask tool lets you create high-quality masks. All you need to do is provide a few strokes as guidance, which gives the AI an idea about color, tone, and textures to figure out the boundaries in the shot and the detailed mask you want.
The masks are created “in a fraction of the time compared to other masking techniques,” ON1 says.
In the area of performance, a computer’s video card (GPU) is now utilized to help boost the speed of common tasks — things like returning to Browse, copy and pasting layers and masks, exporting, and plug-in functions.
The full list of new features and camera incompatibilities can be found here.
ON1 Photo RAW 2019.2 is available starting now as a free upgrade for ON1 Photo RAW 2019 owners or $100 if you’re a new customer. Owners of previous ON1 products can upgrade for $80, and there’s also a subscription-based membership for $130 a year.
