Using a specific tool often? Streamline your workflow to exactly match your image editing, by creating your own workspace for future usage. See for yourself how itâ€™s done.
Workspaces in Capture One are an easy way to customise the interface so that itÂ makes the most sense to you.Â This could include elements such as:
–Â Making your favourite tools easily accessible
–Â Changing the layout and content of the toolbar
–Â Making different workspaces for different tasks (Importing, Editing, Shooting, Focus Checking)
By streamlining the interface, your favorite functions and options can be found quickly and easily.Â Different tasks will also require focus on different parts of the software.Â For example, whilst selectingÂ images from a shoot, it is not necessary to have the Tools on display, thereby creating more screen real estate for image viewing.

The default workspace in Capture One Pro 6Â looks like this:
Many elements of the Workspace can be changed – among others:
–Â Contents of the Toolbar

Customizing Tool Tabs
