But I found so many better tools than what I was working with in Lightroom…specially the highlights and shadows, and clarity tools.
I also mainly do outdoor / landscape photography, and these tools are like a good set of knife and fork!

Comment on Shooting Tethered by Alejandro Muñoz http://blog.phaseone.com/shooting-tethered-with-capture-one-pro-7/#comment-320297 Thu, 27 Nov 2014 15:59:50 +0000 http://phaseone.com.linux27.unoeuro-server.com/?p=4083#comment-320297 Is Eye-Fi supported? I know most of the Pentax (if one) are supported for tethered shots, however, Eye-Fi seems to solve part of this sending the info to the Workstation, so, could be possible to use it as a walkaround for tethering?
Regards and I’m leaning to get a license for CO Pro 8!

Comment on How to fix permanent hot pixels by The Image Quality Professor http://blog.phaseone.com/how-to-fix-permanent-hot-pixels/#comment-319350 Wed, 26 Nov 2014 14:34:15 +0000 http://blog.phaseone.com/?p=5865#comment-319350 Hi Thanu,

The noise reduction in Capture One Pro 8 automatically takes the ISO into account. Even though that the slider values in the Noise Reduction tool by default are set to 50, the underlying noise reduction is highly depending on the ISO setting for the image. The single pixel slider is also depending on the ISO, but for this slider the value will also increase with increased ISO and exposure time.

With Capture One Pro 8 you can produce image files ready for print or for delivery to your customer. Capture One Pro 8 provides a workflow that makes it easy to work with many images and doing even quite complex adjustments. Whether you can replace Photoshop or not really depends on how much you normally do in Photoshop. I don’t think Capture One is about replacing Photoshop. I think it is about doing those thing in Capture One Pro 8 that can be done with very high image quality and an efficient workflow.

All the best,

Niels

I see your problem and your need for a minimum value for the Single Pixel value. A minimum value is a very good idea and it is something we will consider for future releases. Thanks for your input.

All the best,

Niels

Comment on Ramp up your efficiency with Local Adjustments by David Grover http://blog.phaseone.com/ramp-up-your-efficiency-with-local-adjustments/#comment-319244 Wed, 26 Nov 2014 11:44:22 +0000 http://blog.phaseone.com/?p=5382#comment-319244 Hi Marc,

Thanks for taking the time to comment extensively. I agree there is so much scope for Local Adjustments! As with all new features in Capture One, is about finding the right balance.

We gather suggestions from a variety of sources (this one included!). If you want to formalise the process, then you can make a support case…

Use the last link to contact support.

I personally like the idea of being able to convert a colour selection to a mask. I could see lots of uses for that.

Thanks again,

David

Comment on Ramp up your efficiency with Local Adjustments by Marc http://blog.phaseone.com/ramp-up-your-efficiency-with-local-adjustments/#comment-319203 Wed, 26 Nov 2014 10:47:51 +0000 http://blog.phaseone.com/?p=5382#comment-319203 Thanks for this nice article.

I also agree with Alex and Gareth about a possibiliy of preserving custom settings to quickly applying it to other images (settings, not the mask itself).

It is not yet as efficient as it could be.

I like the local adjustments feature, you can do basic things to your image, but it is not yet as efficient as it could be.

As it is relatively new, I fully understand that this feature is not yet mature. It is yet too time consuming to create masks in a complex picture, e.g. the sky shining through small “holes” in a tree silhouette, or masking (burning) candles, as the edges are not easy to catch. The automask feature is kind of a good starting point, although in practice it mostly fails in non-studio environments, as you cannot tweak its sensitivity or behaviour at the edges.

If you develop the masking feature further, which I really hope, you can make obsolete Photoshop post-processing for most of even rather complex images.

Just one suggestion would be: You have a really nice advanced color editor, where you can choose a color range and the respective pixels; it would be wonderful if you could simply add or remove all such selected pixels to/from an existing mask.

I am in the testing phase of C1 yet, I think it is one of the best imaging software out there, and if it would outstand more clearly from the competition, or at least catch up (also in other areas), I would even pay twice the price.

What is your requirements process, how do you gather requirements, suggestions, ideas from your existing or prospect customer base?

Thanks again and best regards
Marc
