Capture One is a raw converter and workflow software which enables photographers to reduce the time and effort required to deliver stunning ready-to-use images with excellent color and detail.
Capture One is designed to create the best image quality in the market and holds a series of easy-to-use tools created to match the professional photographer’s daily workflow.
Accelerate and Organize Your Workflow
Capture One PRO lets you shoot tethered with your Phase One digital back, selected Mamiya digital backs, and with Canon or Nikon DSLRs, which means that you are capturing images directly into your computer without any interim storage. Tethered Capture allows you to check the exposure using the exposure evaluation histogram and meter and to use composition mode to prepare for a tethered session without using up space on your hard drive.
Live Preview Enhanced
Speed up image composition, lighting, and focusing with Live Preview. Makes it possible for the photographer, art director, client, and others to easily view an image on a computer screen at the same time, in real-time. Especially useful with technical cameras. Live Preview is now available for both Mac and Windows and comes with improved performance.
Focus Mask New
Accelerate your image selection by using the Focus Mask for fast verification of image sharpness and focus. The Focus Mask is applied both to the image(s) in the viewer and to the thumbnails in the image browser. The Focus Mask is perfectly suited for portrait, wedding and fashion shoots.
Focus Tool New
Get an instant, true view of image sharpness with the Focus tool. Use it as part of your fixed tool tab or drag it out as a floating tool.
Workflow Accelerators Enhanced
Handle large volume shoots even faster with new and enhanced workflow accelerators. New functionality includes improved session handling and an improved importer, which makes import more simple and intuitive as well as an improved progress indication, which provides a quick visual overview of application tasks.
Camera Support Enhanced
Capture One supports image files from the most popular DSLRs from Canon, Epson, Fuji, Konica Minolta, Leica, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax and Sony, as well as Phase One digital backs and selected Leaf and Mamiya digital backs.
Workspaces, Tools and Tool Tabs Enhanced
Customize your Workspace, Tools and Tool Tabs to make your personal workflow more efficient. Included in Capture One is a selection of best practice default workspaces.
Viewer Margin and Proof Margin New
Improve evaluation of image composition and colors by setting a viewer margin (and proof margin).
The Library tool allows access to the images within the Albums you have created as well as to any image collections you have stored in folders on a computer or networked resource. You can easily browse through the image collections thanks to the hierarchical tree structure of the library, and it is possible to start work on images in your folders without importing them first.
The Import window offers a range of options to make importing a quick and straightforward task.
Use Sessions to organize your captures. When working on client projects, as many professional photographers do, it is natural to store the files you are creating as a complete project, instead of storing as separate files -- especially when your work will often consist of RAW files, setting files, library files and output files. When saving a session you will also automatically create a session file. This file will re-open the session and provides you with an easy way to access your projects.
Use the Adjustments Clipboard to copy setting from one image and apply them to a group of images. The clipboard enables you to apply either all adjustments to a selected group of images or only to apply a subset of the changes.
