ON1 Photo 10 Review – Part 2 of 2

In Part 1 of my ON1 Photo 10 Review I talked about the new look, the Browse Module, and the Enhance Module. Part 2 here finishes with the rest of the improvements to ON1 Photo 10 as well as my conclusion summary.

– the Portrait Module

The Portrait module got a refresh with a new way of working with facial features that makes it easier for retouching.

In previous versions of Perfect Photo Suite, when you brought a photo of a person into Portrait and clicked on the green box after the software automatically found a face, the software would also automatically find the eyes and the mouth.

In ON1 Photo 10 when starting to work on facial features you now have to select the eyes and mouth manually. It is a quick and easy process. First click on the left eye, then the right. Then click on the left corner of the mouth, then the right. For portraits photographed from the side where only one eye and part of the mouth is visible, you have the option of skipping those particular point selections.

Gone are the auto selection of eyes and mouth. Now you go step by step selecting first the left eye, then right. Then the left corner of the mouth, then the right.

Gone is the auto selection of eyes and mouth. Now you go step by step selecting first the left eye, then right. Then the left corner of the mouth, then the right.

For some photographers it can completely replace Photoshop and/or Lightroom. For others it works side by side with those programs as a standalone program or as a plugin. ON1 Photo also still works with Apple’s discontinued Aperture program as well as with Photoshop Elements. It works with OS X starting with 10.8 and newer (including El Capitan) and Windows starting with Windows 7 and newer.

Charlie Monroe

Matt Suess, photographer and teacher extraordinaire, provides anyone who uses and wants a complete understanding of Perfect Photo Suite 9.5 the clearest, most concise yet detailed, and beautiful instructional videos on the subject - bar none! His videos, arranged in a linear fashion, lay a foundation that allows solid understanding of the Suite’s tools and techniques to make an ordinary image into a thing of beauty. Matt, having used Perfect Photo Suite for years, knows the program inside and out. His comfort with the program and his photographer’s techniques which he generously shares, provide a unique learning experience anyone from novice to expert can appreciate and enjoy. The Matt Suess Perfect Photo Suite videos are the only source of instruction on the subject you’ll ever need to thoroughly understand the program.

Brad Czarske

You’ve provided a lot of information, OMG, hours and hours worth! It is like being in your class. Excellent tool for me.

Scott Jones

Matt, Matt, Matt... I'm loving this course. Well worth the entry fee. Your information is well organized. I like your delivery. It's the best On1 tutorial I've found.

Steve Housley

What you have created is amazing, technically and otherwise. How you can do all of it out of the back of a camper just seems impossible. I’m so impressed with the technical aspects of the site. Not your ordinary cut and paste blog.

Joost Bosmans

Thank you for the PPS9.5-course, I've learned a lot.

John Armstrong

You did a great job on the coarse. I have a feeling I will refer to it often.

Mark Leddra

Just finished the course and found it very informative and well presented.

Howard Weiner

Just finished your 6 hour crash course and learned a lot.

Carolyn Van Calcar

I have been watching your On One Perfect training videos and am enjoying them immensely. Nicely done.
