Coming from LR I´m pretty new to CO. Tried CO several times in the past 3 years, but never liked it, but now I think, there were many things improved especially in cataloging pictures. I like your idea with sessions and tried this out.

After shooting, I transfer all photos directly to my NAS. For editing I create a session and import all photos from the one shooting, so they´re locally on SSD for fast editing. When finished, I need only to copy the Sidecar files (*.cos) back to my NAS and then can import the photos into my main catalog.

As others already mentioned, I´m also struggling with the fact, that I need to do some changes in my session. I can copy the *.cos files back to my NAS, but the picture import would import all pictures again and when I try to synchronize the folder, it says there is nothing to synchronize.

The only solution I can imagine is to remove the rerefence to the whole folder and all files and then import again. Any other better ideas?

Thanks
Martin

You can disable the crop from the Adjustments Clipboard tool. Just uncheck crop before you sync.

There is no magic number for USM.. it can be image dependant, output dependant, ISO dependant and so on. So its hard to give definitive answer.

Be careful with your terminology.

You don’t “convert” a Session to a Catalog if thats your impression? They are two totally different file management methods, but you CAN import a Session into a Catalog, but the Session still exists in its own right.

But yes, in the import process, Keywords etc are preserved.

Thanks for sharing tips. I have two questions:
1. Can I completly disable crop from synchronize settings? I Tried in adjustment clipboard with without “autoselect adjusted” but then I have problem with use double arrow for sync locally (wb etc) and customized adjustments dissapear.
2. Canon suggested usm 250% with radius 0.3 for his cr2 for presharpening. How to apply familiar setting in Capture One?

Thanks

In the filters tool there is free space to enter a string for searching.

As I answered to Davide, there is no sync between a Catalog to Session.
