"The popularity of drones has exploded over the last couple of years. Prices are falling making them more accessible for both professional and amateur photographers.
I’ve found a bunch of features in ON1 Photo RAW 2018 that work well with aerial photos.
First, the Import feature is great for downloading and organizing my photos and videos.
During the import process I can do things like:
- Automatically create backup copies to my external drive
- Add keywords that identify the location (e.g., Lava Butte) or job (e.g., 123 Main St.)
- Add copyright information to the metadata
- Automatically organize my photos into folders by capture dates
- Another thing that is useful is lens correction. The wide angle lens on my drone creates noticeable distortion on the edges of photos.
For drone models where a built-in profile isn’t available it is easy to make manual adjustments using the Lens Correction pane in the ON1 Develop module.
After importing the images, I stitch them together using the Create Panorama feature in ON1 Photo RAW 2018. The results are awesome.
Another feature is Automatic Exposure Bracketing (AEB). Using this feature I get a base exposure, and several additional photos of the same scene exposed a little more or a little less. I can pick the one I like best, or even better combine them into an High-dynamic-range (HDR) photo.
Combining the exposures using the HDR feature in ON1 Photo RAW 2018 reveals more details in the highlights and shadows. You would lose these details when using a single exposure."

"My DJI Mavic Pro is one of the most fun toys, I mean essential pieces of photography equipment, I’ve acquired in years. It takes excellent photos and with a little editing in ON1 Photo RAW 2018 they are even better. For my needs, ON1 Photo RAW occupies the sweet spot between not having quite enough features (Adobe Lightroom) versus being overly complicated (Adobe Photoshop). Now, whenever I travel, I always look for opportunities to take photos with my drone. There are more panos, HDR images and lighthouse shots to come!"
