The one thing you probably really miss about Lightroom can be easily recovered in Capture One
Fact: Most people using Adobe Lightroom when editing really just use the basic adjustments panel. I mean think about it – that’s why the company made a completely different version of the software for folks who know nothing about editing. Well, if you’re moving into Capture One and editing more heavily or want something with much more power, you should know about how you can get something that’s more or less the equivalent of Lightroom’s Basic adjustments panel in Capture One.
In today’s tutorial video, we’ll show you how to get it and its advantages and disadvantages.
If you really want to get the Lightroom Adjustments panel, you’ll be treated to something that can give you the basics when adding the Quick Tool tab to your editing suite. This tab lets you make the most basic of adjustments: white balance, contrast, exposure, etc. Plus it lets you control highlights, shadows, and the like. But what it doesn’t give you is the extended control–which Lightroom has but Capture One gives you with even more control, better algorithmic editing, and the ability to work with layers.
This is a tutorial really targeted more to the photographer who is just getting into Capture One from Lightroom. We’ve heard a lot of people not understanding Capture One simply because they don’t spend enough time in it. But once you do and you take the time to explore it a bit, you’ll get it. Plus, there are tons of tutorials and assistance online to help you get everything you need. In the video, you’ll see that Capture One took a while to export the images and that’s because I was recording a video while doing it, so it’s obviously going to take that long; but otherwise the export is a million times faster than Lightroom’s.
