Session based workflow

Capture One provides countless tools when working with studio photography. The Session based file management workflow, was designed to effectively manage your images in real time as they are shot. "Tokens" to sort images into folders, name them, create Smart Albums with multiple criteria and much more. Have Capture One work for you, heavily reducing time needed after your shoot.

Focus Mask

Enable Focus Mask to easily review focus on your images, even from a distance. Capture One will show a green overlay of areas in focus, making sure you are at the top of your game when shooting in a studio environment.

Instant adjustments

Selecting a Style or enabling ‘Copy from last’ will make sure your adjustments are copied onto images as they are shot into Capture One. Need a bit extra contrast to complete the look? Simply apply the adjustments to your latest image and move on. If your client is reviewing your images during the shoot, they will see your look instead of a unedited RAW file.

Custom workspaces

Capture One is designed to accommodate your way of working. You can customize and build workspaces that support your workflow - tools, viewer, thumbnails and icons can be hidden, moved and resized for your convenience. Dual screen workspaces make the reviewing experience even better when having a big team.

"Clients and crew can view images remotely on iPads using Capture One Pro. This is a huge advantage as it limits the number of people crowding around my main monitor while we are shooting and editing and allows me and my operator to make adjustments easily."

- Mark Mawson, commercial photographer

"Reliable and fast tethered capture is one of the most important features of all, which Capture One Pro delivers each time I use it."

- Michael Woloszynowicz, fashion & portrait photographer
