Feature walkthrough

Style Brushes

Style Brushes is a new concept in Capture One that allows applying local adjustments directly on the image without having to create a Layer and specify the adjustments manually.

When you first stroke on the image, a corresponding Adjustment Layer is created with the adjustments embedded in the Style Brush as well as its name. This allows for a swift workflow where manual Layer creation becomes obsolete. Selecting and using another Style Brush will repeat this behavior.

Import Viewer

The Importer has the option of displaying images in an Import Viewer as addition to the standard thumbnail grid view. The new Import Viewer allows sorting of images directly in the importer for fast culling, eliminating the need to later delete unwanted images from the Catalog or Session. This optimizes the workflow as image transfer and preview generation are reduced to only the images needed. The Import Viewer has minimal to no waiting time when switching between images, even if they are located on an external device such as a memory card.

To open the Import Viewer in the importer, simply double click an image, click the Viewer icon in the top left of the importer or hit G on the keyboard. Switch back to the Grid View by clicking the Viewer icon or hitting G on the keyboard.

By default, all images are picked for import. Unpicking all images can be done by deselecting Pick All in the bottom of the importer.

Use the following keyboard shortcuts to pick or unpick images:

S : Pick image
A: Unpick image
Spacebar: Toggle pick/unpick

The picked state of images is not persisted when closing the importer.

The Import Viewer utilizes the built-in preview of RAW files. The resolution and colors of this preview is dependent on the individual camera model and settings, and do not necessarily reflect how the file will look once imported.

 

Additional ProStandard profiles

With Capture One 21 (14.0.0) we introduced the ProStandard profiles. A new type of camera profile that render colors more naturally.

With the release of Capture One 21 (14.1.0) we have added ProStandard profiles for the following camera models:

• Leica SL (Typ 601)*, **

• Leica SL2**
• Leica SL2-S**

IMPROVEMENTS

Viewer max zoom increased
The maximum zoom level in the viewer is increased from 400% to 1600% to better accommodate workflows using high resolution monitors.

Improved visibility of Keystone Tool
The Keystone Tool has received a slight interface upgrade with thicker lines, making it easier to see on all images.

New methods of linking Brush Settings

The Brush Settings menu has two new tick boxes for linking Brush Settings.

Link Brush with Layer
Allows Brush Settings to be saved within each Layer, making it easy to switch between Layers of different purposes without having to adjust the Brush Settings manually for every Layer.

New features and tools in Capture One 21

Speed Edit

Revolutionize how fast you edit photos. Speed Edit lets you work seamlessly without touching a slider on the interface – simply hold down selected hotkeys and scroll, drag or use the arrow keys to make rapid edits. You can even adjust multiple photos at once for the fastest ever batch edit.

https://support.captureone.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015629178

Dehaze

Eliminate haze and the most undesirable atmospheric weather conditions with the ease of moving one slider. The groundbreaking new Dehaze tool uses deep analytic algorithms to assess and automatically adjust contrast, saturation and a matrix of other parameters to remove haze and reveal the image you want. https://support.captureone.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015551837

Faster Asset Management

Get seamless asset management. With increased power and speed, it’s now faster than ever to import, search and browse photos in Catalogs and Sessions.

Improved Importer

With better selection, high-resolution thumbnails, and faster importing, it’s smoother, easier, and quicker to select images directly in the importer – and cull the ones you don’t want. Plus, import images from different folders all at once.

The Importer in Capture One 21 has several different improvements:

  • Picker functionality to easily make the import selection

  • Bigger import window with high-resolution thumbnails

  • Improved terminology and descriptions of import destinations in Catalogs

  • Option to select multiple folders to import from at the same time

  • Option to select images directly in the Folder Browser

  • First-time import requires fewer clicks

Enhanced Tooltips

Navigate the Capture One interface with ease – simply hover over a tool for a quick explanation of how it works and links for more learning. Enable or disable them from Preferences as you like.

Learn

It’s never been easier to get started and master Capture One. Together with the enhanced tooltips, the new “Learn” button allows users to quickly access a curated selection of tutorials designed to help you learn step-by-step, right from within the software, and immediately put new skills into practice.

HEIC Support

With support for HEIC files (8-bit), you can now edit photos from your Apple devices and more in Capture One.  https://support.captureone.com/hc/en-us/articles/360014168598-Capture-One-21-14-0-0-release-notes#h_9789f3d3-0d36-4b1f-b969-c2c51c5958c4

ProStandard Profiles

Stay true to real life with the most authentic colors yet, using the new color science/technology in the new ProStandard Profiles. These new camera profiles overcome the challenge of unwanted color shifts while making adjustments, protecting hues from changes caused by contrast. This is a true game changer for portrait and product photography – and any image that relies on authentic color.
  • Better preservation of color across contrast gradients, resulting in more natural colors from shadows to highlights.

  • Better transition between colors of different hues.

  • More standardized colors across different camera models.

Capture One 21 provides ProStandard camera profiles for the following cameras:

  • Sony: a7 III, a7R II, a7R III, a7R IV, a7C, a6000, a6300

  • Nikon: D810, D850, Z6, Z7

  • Canon: 5D II, 5D III, 5D IV, 5DS R, R5, R6

  • Phase One: IQ3 100MP, IQ4 150MP

  • Leica: S3, SL2

Easy Brush Adjusting

It’s now possible to easily change the size, hardness, opacity, and flow of any brush by using modifier keys and a mouse / trackpad / pen, removing the need to right-click.

Modifying the Opacity and Flow sliders in the brush settings

Changing Size and Hardness parameters of the brush

Capture One & Leica

Unlike other raw processors, Capture One’s camera profiles are uniquely developed for each specific camera model, a process that requires the use of the camera in and out of a controlled lab in Copenhagen, where a team of specialists engage each new model in various scenarios. They then evaluate all the performance parameters such as color, sharpness, and noise across hundreds of images and uses that data to deliver a truly tailored profile, which ultimately provides the best post-processing experience. Capture One 21 brings this level of support to a growing list of Leica cameras, and for the first time brings tethering capabilities to those models.

Besides regular support for Leica S3, basic tethering* for Leica S3 and Leica SL2 is now supported in Capture One.

*Live-view is currently not supported.

New Camera Support

  • Fujifilm X-S10
  • Leica SL2 (added tether support)
