The New Capture One 11.1 Has a Resource Hub with All the Tutorials You Need

Hot on the heels of Adobe’s latest Creative Cloud updates, Phase One brings us Capture One 11.1

It is the way of the world these days: a new camera is released and it can take weeks, sometimes months, before the popular RAW processors are updated in order to support them. It’s one of the biggest drawbacks to being an early adopter, but thankfully the wait isn’t generally long. If you happen to have purchased a [amazon_textlink asin=’B07B43WPVK’ text=’Sony A7 III’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thephobl-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’bd52ca93-42ba-11e8-b05e-75767a700aea’] or [amazon_textlink asin=’B079PTRNKK’ text=’Fujifilm X-H1′ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thephobl-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’c67a8ab4-42ba-11e8-b076-bf17b7e3042e’] in the last months then you know this pain, but if you are a Capture One 11 user then your wait is over.

How to Export Images with Watermarks in Capture One Pro 11

Need to watermark your images in Capture One Pro 11? Here’s how.

Lots of photographer who need to export their images with watermarks don’t really know how to do that in Capture One Pro 11. This post will clear up the confusion. You see, Capture One used to have the watermarking feature built into the most common way to export images, which is by going to file, then export, then variants. It was pretty awesome and straight forward but for some odd reason or another, they removed that feature. Why? Apparently it wasn’t really used. So to get watermarks on your images, you have to do something else.

How to Get Lightroom’s Basic Adjustments Panel in Capture One

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.

Review: RNI Films All Films Lite 4 Capture One Styles

RNI Films All Films Lite 4 does a decent job with emulating the look of film. 

Every time RNI puts out an update of some sort, I get very excited. For years, they’ve been my go to for film emulation simulations in times when I want my digital files to look like film and didn’t happen to shoot film. So with their new RNI Films All Films Lite 4 update that came out for Capture One, it was almost like it was a match made in heaven. Capture One’s RAW file editor with RNI Films All Films Lite 4 sounds wonderful. Photographers who want the actual look of film, have shot film, and like the look of it will greatly apprecaite what RNI Films All Films Lite 4 can do. It won’t give you some of the horrid photos you find in Facebook groups where you see, “OMFG IT LOOKS LIKE REAL FILM THIS IS A GAME CHANGER OMFG!!!!” that the folks who have never shot film would say. Instead, it does a good job in most situations. Granted, it can also do a very hit or miss job.

The Classic Presets Introduce Classic Film Styles for Capture One

The Classic Film Styles Collection could be a better choice for film simulation over Capture One Film Styles.

After creating Kodachrome and Cinestill Presets for Adobe Lightroom, The Classic Presets now has film simulations for Capture One. If you’re looking for a better option for the Capture One Film Styles, the Classic Film Styles collection could just be it.

We’ve recently given the Capture One Film Styles a go and gave our verdict a few days ago. It’s a nice option for photographers who want a film look to their digital images, but not for “hybrid” photographers who also shoot film regularly. If you’re among those who think the simulations don’t look like film at all, The Classic Presets creator André Duhme shares your disappointment.

Review: Capture One Film Styles (Capture One Pro, New Version)

Capture One Film Styles has a brand new way of altering your images.

Capture One Film Styles, as it was properly called, were styles (otherwise known as presets) created by a third party developer. But recently, Capture One decided to make their own. Indeed, with more people coming to Capture One, there are great reasons why they needed to do something like this. One of the biggest things people want to do is more or less what they did in Lightroom, but with the enhancements and superior RAW editor in Capture One. For those photographers, it means film-like presets. As a film shooter on the regular, Capture One Film Styles is sort of an awkward situation.

RNI Films All Films 4 Lite Gets a Big Update for Capture One 11

RNI Films All Films 4 Lite’s Update for Capture One 11 Brings New Film Simulations

If you’ve been a reader of this website for a while, you’ll know I’m a very big fan of RNI Films. By far, they’re the best film simulation option I’ve seen and used; and today they’ve updated their styles for Capture One 11. The new styles are designed to work with the algorithms and program better but it also brings with it both new clean and grainy films. For example, Fomapan 100 is now a simulation. Then there’s Fuji Sensia, two different types of Velvia, two different types of T-Max, and more. It’s pretty fantastic and I’m super excited about it!

Review: Capture One 11 (A Blend of Lightroom and Photoshop in One Program)

Capture One 11 is here now; and it’s going to push photographers in the direction they want to be in

I’ve been a Capture One convert for a while now as all our testing involves running RAW files and more through the program. It’s simply a better piece of software than Lightroom is; and at this point both versions of Adobe Lightroom feel way too pedestrian for the type of work I’m doing. In some ways, I want to relate to something that my late mother used to do. You see, we grew up in a household where my mom spent way too many hours in front of the television. So she tuned into Home and Garden TV and fell in love with doing a lot of stuff on the house. What that would mean is a whole lot of trips to Home Depot carrying many pounds of cement, plywood, sheetrock, plaster, and tons more in a 1997 Toyota Camry. It was honestly madness and it eventually drove the car to the point of breaking; literally. The fact is that a Toyota Camry wasn’t designed to do that type of work; a Toyota Tundra on the other hand can do it with no problems at all. This is synonymous to what I feel Adobe Lightroom and Capture One is; Lightroom is the paltry but reliable Camry for everyday needs while the Capture One is the Tundra designed for actual work. At a certain point, you’re going to hit walls and realize the software you’re using is rather subpar.

With the newest upgrades to Capture One 11, I feel like even more photographers should be joining the ranks. So for the past week or so, I’ve been testing the beta version of Capture One 11.

Sample Gallery: Sony a7r III RAW Files Edited in Capture One

The Sony a7r III seems to have a sensor that allows for ultimate versatility

We’re currently in Sedona, Arizona with Sony and a number of other journalists using the Sony a7r III camera along with some of the company’s latest lenses. Additionally, I’ve been testing the Sony a7r III with the Profoto B1 and the Profoto A1. We’ve been shooting a number of landscapes, portraits, sports, and documenting decisive moments with this camera. Thus far, the Sony a7r III seems really fantastic as a mirrorless camera but there are still a few quirks. However, the good far outweighs the bad.

The New Capture One Film Styles Pack Promises an Analog Look With Your Photos

The Capture One Film Styles Pack looks really fantastic if you like that style

Photographers who adore the look of analog film presets may greatly appreciate the new Capture One Film Styles pack. Capture One has these before–done by an outside company–but now they’re giving us official offerings. The Capture One Film Styles pack differ from something like RNI Films in that they’re not specific about what film emulsions they’re trying to emulate. But the pack contains around 33 color film simulations and 12 black and white offerings.

Editing the Same Photo in Capture One Pro 10 vs Adobe Lightroom Classic CC

Which one? Adobe Lightroom Classic CC or Capture One Pro 10? That’s the question

Today’s video isn’t really a ReEdit episode per se, but more of a comparison of Adobe Lightroom Classic CC vs Capture One Pro 10. To do this comparison, I’ll show you guys how I’d go about editing the same image in Adobe Lightroom vs editing it in Capture One Pro 10. Lots of photographers swear by Lightroom and those who tend to want more controls and an arguably better RAW processor tend to go for Capture One Pro 10. But with Adobe Lightroom Classic CC, we got a number of powerful upgrades. In addition to that, I’m editing these photos on a very good machine. So which does the better job?

The ReEdit: Editing Skin Tones and Getting More Control in Capture One

In today’s episode of The ReEdit, I decided to go back into my portfolio of hard drives to a shoot from 2013. This session was done with a fan favorite: Grace. I was reviewing a Profoto light and the images, even today, hold up. First off, it was done with what’s an old camera by today’s standards, the Canon 5D Mk II. However, when using it with the Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art lens combined with the Profoto light I’m able to get sharpness that rivals modern cameras and lenses. This proves more than anything that your lighting is really what matters. Then I go into the editing process.

Review: Capture One Styles (Capture One 10, All Packs)

Presets are the lifeblood of so many photographers who don’t have a whole lot of time, and so Capture One Styles is more than a welcome entry into the photography world. Capture One has had a number of styles built into the program itself. Then there are other options such as the large variety of film styles (presets) available. But earlier this year, Capture One Styles was released–therefore expanding the number of official presets made available directly from the company. Available with a number of different packages for purchase, photographers and editors using the latest version of Capture One can utilize some of the newest and interesting options available for editing.

Rejoice! RNI All Films 4 Lite Finally Comes to Capture One

RNI Films told us that this day was coming a while ago, and finally we’ve got the news: RNI All Films 4 Lite is finally here for Capture One. The preset package was previously only available for Photoshop and Lightroom but we’ve finally got it for Capture One–which more and more photographers have been picking up due to frustration with how Lightroom’s processing algorithms and sloth-like speed have been letting them down. For those only aware of VSCO and Mastin, RNI Films basically is another set of presets but based on science and a massive archive of images.

This package offers 39 presets for photographers and that list is after the jump.

Review: Capture One Film Styles Extended (Capture One Pro Preset Collection)

Capture One Pro isn’t as preset friendly as Lightroom simply because of the fact that when photographers go to it, they really try to create and massage their own ideals of color into the photos. Afterall, that’s part of what it was designed for. But with the Capture One Film Styles Extended, you get a whole lot of that if you’re a film shooter. We previously reviewed the Capture One Film Styles preset pack, and honestly didn’t feel like it held up against real film. Granted, the images still looked good–though if you’re a film fanatic the way I am, you’ll want something close.

However, with Capture One Film Styles Extended, you get a lot more options. And this time around, the options get closer when it comes to colors though not totally when it comes to tones. And either way, it’s tough to create a bad photo.

RNI Films is Coming to Capture One (EXCLUSIVE)

If you’re a big fan of the way that Really Nice Images’ RNI Films tends to render photos, then you’ll be really in love with the fact that RNI Films is coming to Capture One Pro. Indeed, one of the only things that I miss about Adobe Lightroom is that I was able to plug in and work with my RNI films presets. But the styles are on their way for Capture One, but they’re still in development for the most part.

So in preparation, I’ve been speaking with Oliver over at RNI support to learn more about how the project is coming along.

How to Save a Poor Exposure In Capture One 10 Using Advanced Methods

If you’re like me, then you’re one of the many photographers who has recently jumped ship from Adobe Lightroom to Capture One for its improved (yet albeit advanced) workflow. Indeed, working with Capture One is a different process and requires you to think in a more complex, sectioned way when editing images. What worked for you in Lightroom won’t necessarily work for you in Capture One 10. If anything, think about it as going from aperture priority on your camera to manual mode. But like, full, full manual.

Recently, I had the opportunity to photograph a Thai kickboxer and decided to try something a bit different by gelling a flash with red to give him more of a neon look and have him stand out more from the background. So here’s how I saved the image.

At the moment of publishing this post, it’s in Beta but it’s bound to be improved.
