How to create multiple Variants
In Capture One you can easily add variants of a whole series of images.
If you want three variants you should arrange your Image browser to hold three columns. Start by selecting View -> “Place Browser Right”.
Select all the images you want to work with and make sure that the “Edit Selected Variants” is on.
Use the shortcut (Mac F2 / Win F7) to add a new Variant. When “Edit Selected Variants” is on you will get a new variant of all the selected images every time you pres the shortcut key. Press twice to get a total of three variants of all the selected images. Now every image and its variants covers one row each in the Image browser.
Select an image and apply settings, Presets or Styles to get your three different looks.
Now it is easy to apply settings from one image variant to the rest of the image variants in a column. Select all images in a column with the adjusted variant as the primary variant. Use the Copy/Paste button (see example above) to apply the settings from the primary selected variant to all the selected Variants
Do the same for the last 2 Variants.
