  • ON1 Photo RAW will confirm that the presets are installed.
  • Find the Presets panel on the left. If you do not see the Presets panel, select the Window menu and select Show Browser Panel to hide/show the Browser panel.

Warning: If you are running multiple versions of ON1 Photo RAW and the presets are installing in the wrong version, you have a couple of options. 1) Drag the presets directly on to the icon for the specific version you want to install them to. 2) Uninstall unused versions of ON1 Photo RAW.

Usage Instructions

Select Image

  • Open ON1 Photo RAW. In the Browser tool, select an infrared image and click the Edit Photo icon in the left panel.
  • Within the Develop panel in the right column, open Tone & Color.
  • In the Tone section, adjust the Exposure slider if needed to correct the exposure of your image. Use the Histogram at the top of the right columnn to validate your exposure.
  • You can adjust any setting in the Develop panel at any time, even after applying a preset.

Set White Balance

  • In the Color section, click the bold °K button to disable the Kelvin-based Temperature slider. The Kelvin-based Temperature slider is limited to color temperatures from 2,000 to 50,000 k and most infrared images are below of this range. When °K button is disabled, the Temperature slider is effectively a blue/yellow tint slider. The only visual indicator is if the °K button is bolded. Bolded is Kelvin-based, unbolded is blue/yellow tint-based. For most infrared images, use the unbolded button.
  • Select the picker between the White Balance drop-down and the °K button.
  • Click on a color neutral subject in your image, such as clouds, pavement, roads, sidewalks, or buildings.
  • Optionally, you may manually adjust the Temperature slider to get the right separation of yellow and blue in your image.

Apply Preset

  • If you do not see the Preset panel on the left, in the Window menu, select Show Browser Panel.
  • Select the Infrared preset group.
  • Select a color or monochrome preset group based on the treatment you’d like for the image: Color Amber, Color Gold, Color Invert, Color Pink, Color Rose, Color Split, Color Swap, Color White, or Mono 01 to 06.
  • Select the first preset in the group to apply the color swap or monochrome treatment alone. Or select any of the other presets to apply the treatment with additional effects.
  • After applying a preset, you can return to the Develop panel and tweak the Temperature slider or any other Develop settings.
  • To modify any effect, open the Effects panel on the right side. You can reduce the Opacity of effects or make other changes to each effect.

Local Contrast

  • In the Preset panel, return to the Infrared preset group using the < icon, located left of the preset group name.
  • Select the Contrast group.
  • Select a Contrast preset. Higher numbers have more contrast.
  • These contrast presets are local AI Adaptive presets, which target the Sky, Flora, and Natural Ground.
  • To modify any local adaptive preset, select the Local panel in the right column.
