Managing Sharpening and Cropping When preparing images for processing and output from the Process Recipe’s Adjustments tab, you can apply sharpening based on the intended output device, or disable sharpening completely. You can also choose to include any cropping made during editing. - Overview of output sharpening - Applying sharpening for printing - Applying screen sharpening (web) - Apply capture and creative sharpening only - Disable sharpening - Adding or removing any cropping Overview of output sharpening As the third and final stage of a three-part sharpening workflow, Capture ...
Adding a Watermark Find out how to add a watermark to variants when processing, using the Process Recipe’s Watermark tool. - An overview of watermarking - Adding a text-based watermark - Adding a graphics-based watermark - Creating a user preset - Selecting a preset - Deleting a user preset - Removing watermarks An overview of watermarking Capture One enables you to add a watermark to variants when processing to protect your copyright and deter others from unauthorized use of your images. The Process Recipes tool allows the option to create a watermark using the system’s fonts, certa...
Managing Keywords and other Metadata The Process Recipe’s Metadata tab is used to manage keywords, ratings and color tags, and other metadata such as copyright information, GPS and EXIF data. It can also be used to manage annotations and overlays. - Managing keywords - Specifying metadata - Managing annotations - Including an overlay Managing keywords When exporting images, Capture One will include any assigned keywords from shared keyword libraries by default. However, you can select specific keyword libraries to assign to images during output. This is particularly useful when you hav...
Processing Variants Pro Process images / Process recipe / Watermark / TIF / Web Contact Sheet Find out how to prepare image variants for processing using single or multiple Process Recipes from the Output inspector. Recipes are used to set the desired file format, ICC Profile and image resolution. They're also used to control keywords, add or remove sharpening, and add a watermark to images. You can also find out how to name or rename images, set the output location and use the Batch Queue to reprocess images. Working with Process Recipes Find out about Process Recipes, how to use th...
Web Gallery Web Contact Sheet / JPEG The Web Contact Sheet lets you showcase your work by creating web photo galleries. Introduction Create a web gallery from a selection of flexible templates for impressive web based image presentations. You can insert a title, a text description and a copyright and set the image size and quality (N.B. Smaller size files are preferable when e-mailing to a client). Create a web contact sheet Select the desired thumbnail files in the Browser . Select File>Make Web Contact Sheet… The Web Contact Sheet module opens in a window on top o...
Batch Queue and Processing History Capture One automatically processes and outputs batches of photos, arranging them in a queue or line as computer resources dictate. A history or record of images that have been previously output is maintained, making it easy to find individual photos for reprocessing. - Edit the batch - Process history - Reprocess files (history tab) Edit the batch Go to the Batch Tool Tab . Choose the Queue tab. A batch of files can be changed and reordered. Simply drag and drop files to the desired order during processing. Highlight a file(s)...
The Capture Process This section highlights some of the pitfalls encountered during the capture process, both during profiling and reproduction. - Overview - Lab and CIE XYZ color spaces - Standard observer - Light source - Metamerism Overview A common method used to assess color in an image is to photograph a reference reflectance target (i.e., a color chart) that includes a set of color patches with specified characteristics and reference color values. The target is usually photographed at the beginning and at the end of the session, but it can also be included within each image. The i...
Lab Coordinates in a Processed Image The process of conversion from RGB to the Lab color space is determined by the profile in use. However, when using different color engines, there is some discrepancy in the way the data is translated. - Overview - White point - Chromatic Adaptation - Black Point Compensation (BPC) - Slope Limiting Profiles - Rendering Intent - Profiles based on 3D LUTs Overview When measuring colors (e.g., from patches in color chart) using readouts, the intention is to match the colors in the processed output file to the chart’s reference data. The camera profile des...
Standard RGB Color Spaces This section looks at the relative merits, as well as some of the shortcomings, of popular standard RGB color space profiles. - Comparison of spaces - sRGB - Adobe RGB (1998) - ProPhoto RGB - eciRGB (2008) Comparison of spaces The are several RGB spaces that are formal color space standards. Each can be used in Capture One for color correction and when using color readouts for comparing with reference values supplied with reflectance charts (i.e., color targets). These include sRGB , specified by HP and Microsoft ( IEC 61966-2-1), Adobe RGB (1998), ProPhoto...
Session Users Glossary Sessions are particularly convenient when working tethered, especially on per-project basis, and are often preferred over a Catalog when a more streamlined workflow is required. This glossary details some of the specific terms encountered when using Sessions. - Album - Export - Favorite - Hot folder - Processing - Selects - Session - Smart album - Session folders - Tethered - Tokens - Variant Album An album allows the user arbitrarily create collections of images. Drag and drop images into an album from the Browser . Albums are virtual, meaning they only contain...
