On1 Photo Raw support

Hello Optics users,
We are in the process of qualifying On1 Photo Raw 2023 as a supported host for Optics.
If there are any On1 users here, we’d love to hear your feedback. Currently, the process is working for people that have PS/LR installed.

To allow On1 to be able to launch the Optics plugin, launch On1 2023 and go to file>preferences>plugins:

Set the plugin directory to the Adobe plugin directory and then restart On1.

  • macOS - /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-ins
  • Windows - C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins


Now you can launch Optics 2022.5 from On1.
Open an image and go to Layers>Filters>BorisFX>Optics 2022

We are interested to hear any feedback.


I don’t have photoshop nor lightroom but follow your advice on the configuration of the alternate plugin folder ( * Windows - C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins) in Photo raw 2023 and it works very well.

Thank you.
