X-Rite’s new app works with existing ColorChecker PassPort Photo and Classic swatch pads to produce custom colour profiles for Capture One Pro.
Is Capture One now the best RAW converter of all for Fujifilm owners? Phase One has added support for the Fujifilm GFX, launched a new, free Capture One Express Fujifilm app, and Capture One 12 now adds Fujifilm Film Simulation modes.
Phase One has announced the next version of Capture One, revealing a pretty big list of changes, including new ‘parametric’ and luminosity masking tools, support for some key new full frame mirrorless cameras, the addition of the Fujifilm Film Simulation modes first announced at Photokina 2018 and some significant interface and workflow changes. Capture One […]
And that’s not all. Version 11.1 also offers a new Resource Hub for online tutorials, tips, ideas and webinars, an improved workflow for Styles (preset image ‘looks’) and a complimentary ‘Spring’ styles pack to go with it. Import speeds have been improved and the Capture Pilot 2.0 tethered shooting app (which works on Apple iPads) […]
Maybe you wouldn’t normally think of Capture One Pro as an image-editor. It’s a superb RAW converter and general image enhancement tool, but most of the time you’d probably swap to a plug-in or an external editor for really detailed effects work – especially any that required localised adjustments. But I’ve been spending some time with Capture One […]
There’s something odd about the way Capture One crops certain RAW files. Now and again, when you select the crop tool, you’ll see that Capture One has chosen a default crop that’s actually smaller than the full image area. This might seem like a minor operational annoyance and that you just need to recrop manually, […]
We’ve all been there. You’ve got a shot that’s fundamentally sound but lacks rich, strong colours or any kind of atmosphere. They can be tricky to fix and you can spend hours experimenting with settings that don’t seem to get you any closer – and you don’t want to resort to flashy and obvious effects […]
You can’t keep every picture you shoot – but how do you know you’re keeping the right ones? We all shoot more than we keep, and the obvious thing to do is make a first pass of your images and delete the ones that look wrongly exposed, flat or lacking in colour. Obvious, yes, but […]
Capture One lets you save adjustments for re-use in the future, but it can be confusing because it offers user ‘presets’ and user ‘styles’ without being terribly clear about the difference. In other programs, ‘presets’ usually refer to sets of adjustments applied all at once, but Capture One presets are subtly different. So to make […]
Capture One Pro has some very good localised adjustment tools. You can create gradient filter effects and paint on manual adjustments, just as you can in Lightroom, but I think Capture One Pro’s system of adjustment layers and masks works a lot better. I’m going to show how simple and effective they can be with […]
