ON1 has released an updated version of its ON1 Photo RAW 2019 image editing software. The highlight of Version 2019.2 of the Photoshop/Lightroom alternative is a new “AI-powered” masking tool, while the program has also received general performance improvements, bug fixes, as well as support for new camera models, including the Nikon Z6, Z7 and D850.

As the video below shows, the new Quick Mask Tool creates accurate masks by using color, tone and textures to identify boundaries—with just a few guiding strokes by the user. ON1 says this allows you to create masks much more quickly than using other techniques. The software now also makes use of your computer’s video card for frequently used processes, like masks, copy/pasting layers, and certain export and plug-in tasks.

ON1 Photo RAW 2019.2 costs $100, while owners of an ON1 product can upgrade for $80. If you sign up on the website, you can give the program a spin for a month free of charge.
