For about a decade, On1’s photo editing tools have been marketed and used primarily as plug-ins for Adobe Lightroom, Apple Aperture, or Adobe Photoshop. Each tool was an independent, one-trick pony and appropriately named: Perfect Black and White, for example, or Perfect Portrait. A couple of versions back, On1 began rolling these mini-apps into a Perfect Photo Suite that allowed users to access all the tools from a central dashboard independent of Lightroom or Aperture. The latest version—renamed On1 Photo 11—takes this plan to the next level. Photo 11 is no longer a suite in name or design: It’s now a pretty well integrated app. Yes, you can still use it as an adjunct for Lightroom or Photoshop; if you do, you will welcome Photo 11’s improved speed and cooperation among the modules. But for at least some photographers willing to “think different,” the big news with this release is that On1 Photo 11 is ready to stand on its own as an alternative to both Lightroom and Photoshop.
