A Professional and Feature-Rich Image Editing Software Solution Dedicated to Photographers, Enabling Them to Obtain Astonishing High-Quality Images
Capture One Pro is a complex application that bundles professional tools, designed for image editing.
Upon program startup, you are welcomed by a screen where you can view an intro video, as well as online tutorials, or select your workspace (default or simplified).
The user interface is intuitive and flexible. Nevertheless, most novices need more time to get accustomed to it, in comparison with expert users.
The View menu contains a wide array of options – the Viewer (large image preview), Browser View (displays image thumbnails), Loupe tool (to quickly check focus while viewing the entire image), full screen, slideshow, Capture Pilot (rate and capture images on Apple devices), and many more.
Furthermore, you can use various tools from the toolbar menu – select (move to, trash), pan (overlay, watermark), zoom (pick focus point, loupe), crop (add or remove aspect ratio), straighten (rotate freehand), keystone (vertical, horizontal), remove spots, local adjustments (draw, erase, toggle mask display), effects (pick white balance, skin tone, shadow level, etc.), and apply adjustments.
The Tool Tabs offers you access to Library, Capture, Quick, Color, Exposure, Lens Correction, Metadata, Adjustments Clipboard, and Output. So, you can configure color sensitivity, split tones, curve levels, contrast, brightness and saturation, sharpening, noise reduction (basic and advanced), moire, spot removal, clarity, styles and presets, optimize workflow, customize the toolbar, workspaces and hotkeys, simultaneously work in two sessions, and more.
Capture One Pro demands a massive amount of system resources, and sometimes it has a slow response time. The software comes with well-drawn documentation (contains snapshots and video tutorials). However, it would probably be difficult for first-time users to work their way through Capture One Pro. Nevertheless, we strongly recommend this software for advanced image editing.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used Capture One and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
