Applying Adjustments during import
July 1, 2011 Leave a comment
With Capture One Pro 6, it is possible to apply Presets and Styles during image import.
By doing this, your images will have the desired look, as soon as they show up in the thumbnail browser in Capture One.
For instance, if you are out shooting for Black and White, you can have all your imported images shown in Black and White according to your chosen Black and White Preset or Style
After Import, all images show up according to the selected Black and White Style applied by the Importer.
When inserting a CF card into you card reader, the Capture One Importer will launch automatically. If additional image application has been installed on your PC/Mac, you may have to choose the Capture One Importer among the different importer choices.
In the Importer, you find the Adjustments tool. Here you can apply Adjustments to your images during import. Your adjustments just need to be saved into a Preset or a Style. Presets and Styles are the same – a Preset just comes from a single tool in Capture One while a Style can hold any number of Presets from different tools.
In this case, I chose to apply my Black and White style named “B&W style 1”. When hovering over the Style, a yellow info field pops up showing the tools involved in the Style. Note that the images in the importer are always displayed by default rendering and not with the style applied. This first happens during the actual import.
