From Capture One:
COPENHAGEN, Dec 8th, 2020: Capture One, the premier name in photo editing software, celebrates the release of the newest version, Capture One 21.
Linking our heritage to our future, this new version of Capture One reimagines the relationship between form and function to create a seamless bond between creator and creation. Combining its best-loved elements like personalized Workspaces and powerful Color Editor with new and exciting features like Speed Edit for immersive editing and Dehaze, to improve atmospheric conditions, Capture One 21 brings a new type of user experience; one that helps creators push the boundaries of their creativity by removing distraction and making it easy to exploit one’s creative potential.
Carrying on the tradition of development driven by user feedback, Capture One 21 is rooted in developing solutions to current challenges and anticipating tomorrow’s needs. With new ProStandard Color Profiles Capture One 21 introduces color technology that preserves authentic colors to overcome the challenge of unwanted hue changes when applying adjustments, and new HEIC support means Capture One is ready to work with cameras of today and tomorrow. It is also now easier than ever to learn Capture One with enhanced tooltips and easy access to tutorials right from within the software. Complimenting this suite of new features are improvements to current ones, bringing faster asset management and an improved importer to make organization effortless and quick.
Furthering its commitment to providing unparalleled raw processing and tethering with more than 500 different camera models, Capture One is delighted to launch a new collaboration with Leica Camera AG to bring industry leading tethering support to a growing catalog of Leica cameras, starting off with the Leica SL2 and Leica S3.
"Capture One 21 bridges our heritage to the future, carrying forward the achievements of our team and the creative community we are inspired by,” says Jan Hyldebrandt-Larsen, VP Product Management, CPO at Capture One. “We understand that art and tastes don’t stop evolving, so we provide performance that won’t stop advancing. We are very excited about Capture One 21 and look forward to seeing what photographers create with it, and to embrace new generations of creatives.”
New features and tools in Capture One 21
Revolutionize how fast you edit photos. Speed Edit lets you work seamlessly without touching a slider on the interface – simply hold down selected hotkeys and scroll, drag or use the arrow keys to make rapid edits. You can even adjust multiple photos at once for the fastest ever batch edit.
Eliminate haze and the most undesirable atmospheric weather conditions with the ease of moving one slider. The groundbreaking new Dehaze tool uses deep analytic algorithms to assess and automatically adjust contrast, saturation and a matrix of other parameters to remove haze and reveal the image you want.
Faster Asset Management
Get seamless asset management. With increased power and speed, it’s now faster than ever to import, search and browse photos in Catalogs and Sessions.
With better selection, high-resolution thumbnails, and faster importing, it’s smoother, easier, and quicker to select images directly in the importer – and cull the ones you don’t want. Plus, import images from different folders all at once.
The onboarding experience and familiarization with Capture One is now smoothest it has ever been, thanks to the new enhanced tooltips. Navigate the Capture One interface with ease – simply hover over a tool for a quick explanation of how it works and links for more learning. Enable or disable them from Preferences as you like.
It’s never been easier to get started and master Capture One. Together with the enhanced tooltips, the new “Learn” button allows users to quickly access a curated selection of tutorials designed to help you learn step-by-step, right from within the software, and immediately put new skills into practice.
With support for HEIC files (8-bit), you can now edit photos from your Apple devices and more in Capture One.
Stay true to real life with the most authentic colors yet, using the new color science/technology in the new ProStandard Profiles. These new camera profiles overcome the challenge of unwanted color shifts while making adjustments, protecting hues from changes caused by contrast. This is a true game changer for portrait and product photography – and any image that relies on authentic color.
Available for select camera models that can be found at support.captureone.com
Easy Brush Adjusting
It’s now possible to easily change the size, hardness, opacity, and flow of any brush by using modifier keys and a mouse / trackpad / pen, removing the need to right-click.
Capture One & Leica
Unlike other raw processors, Capture One’s camera profiles are uniquely developed for each specific camera model, a process that requires the use of the camera in and out of a controlled lab in Copenhagen, where a team of specialists engage each new model in various scenarios. They then evaluate all the performance parameters such as color, sharpness, and noise across hundreds of images and uses that data to deliver a truly tailored profile, which ultimately provides the best post-processing experience. Capture One 21 brings this level of support to a growing list of Leica cameras, and for the first time brings tethering capabilities to those models.

New camera and lens support
Capture One provides users with the most accurate and powerful image editing available, and the wide-ranging support of cameras and lenses is a hallmark of the software. For enthusiasts and professionals alike, Capture One continually evolves to handle the newest cameras and lenses.
Capture One carefully evaluates and interprets each camera’s RAW formats, allowing Capture One to present images with the utmost fidelity, often bringing out nuances that other programs can’t even perceive.
Currently offering RAW support for more than 500 cameras, Capture One also provides profiling and image correction support for more than 500 lenses. As with the RAW file interpretation, Capture One carefully measures the optical characteristics of each supported lens and builds correction algorithms that compensate for the various optical imperfections of various designs. As a result, Capture One can correct for numerous common optical issues such as vignette, and chromatic aberration as needed for each of the supported lenses, providing you the best version of your image possible. And they are always adding support for the newest camera bodies and lenses.
Capture One 21 release date is December 8th, 2020.

From the Caputre One Blog:
The new Capture One 12 offers powerful upgrades to existing tools and introduces new features for efficient workflows. This post will quickly guide you through the best of the best.
Re-designed interface and menus
The design of Capture One 12 has been refined, providing a flatter and more modern interface with bigger font sizes. This will help photographers not only navigate more easily but also decrease fatigue from having too much to focus on.
Additionally, the Tool Tab icons have been re-designed for a better indication of what they represent. Remember, you can always customize the Tool Tabs and their content if needed!
Radial and Linear Gradient Masks
If you need other tools than a brush to create your masks, look no further! Radial and Linear Gradient Masks are here. They are parametric, meaning you can transform them after they are created making these tools dramatically more flexible than what you could previously do in Capture One.
Radial Gradients are the new thing, and they let you create circular masks with soft feathering. They can be transformed, rotated and masked either on the inside or the outside of the round shape. Linear Gradients now allow transforming, moving, rotating and even changing the fall-off asymmetrically.
Watch the tutorial below for in-depth information.
Yes, you read that right. Luminosity masking is now possible in Capture One, and it’s easier than you think.
The Luma Range tool can be applied on any mask, even gradients like the above, and will effectively restrict your mask to certain areas based on the luminosity in your image.
“Why do I need this?”, you might ask. Well, have you ever wanted to desaturate your shadows a bit? Or apply color grading with more control than the Color Balance Tool can provide? Or maybe add clarity to the clouds in your landscape image with a tricky horizon line? Luminosity masks make all of this a breeze. Watch the tutorial below to learn more.
It’s no secret that Capture One features a massive library of keyboard shortcuts. These shortcuts are customizable, letting you do most actions with a few clicks on the keyboard.
Capture One 12 makes this much easier. You can now search, not only for features and commands, but also for specific keys to see their function. Additionally, shortcuts for features that were previously inaccessible are added for an even larger library of shortcuts.
Capture One delivers an extensive suite of powerful tools to manage, edit and export images. Now the new Capture One plug-in ecosystem allows third-party developers to create plug-ins that can add even more features and capabilities to Capture One’s toolset. The first plug-ins will enable direct publishing, round-trip editing, and open-with workflows.
We are just getting started with plug-ins, much more will come! Find out what’s already available and send us your wishes here: www.phaseone.com/plugins
Intelligent copy/apply of adjustments
Capture One has a powerful feature to copy adjustments from one image to others. The functionality will auto-select any adjustments applied to an image, making them easy to apply to other images. Previous to Capture One 12, any composition change, for example, a crop, would also be automatically selected and carried over.
By default Capture One now exclude compositional changes from the auto-select functionality, making it easy to synchronize edits and color gradings between images with different crops and rotations.
Fujifilm Film Simulations
If you have ever shot with a Fujifilm X-series camera, you’re probably aware of the built-in simulations like Acros, Classic Chrome, Velvia etc. Extending on the collaboration with Fujifilm, these simulations are now available in Capture One 12 and will change the starting point of your editing to one of these simulations.
The simulations are available for Fujifilm camera models as Curves within the Base Characteristics Tool.

The Resource Hub is an in-app portal that allows users to easily access news, tutorials, updates and much more – all designed to inspire photographers and ensure the best workflow and user experience in Capture One,” said Jan Hyldebrandt-Larsen, VP Software Business at Phase One.NEW FEATURES AND TOOLS IN CAPTURE ONE 11.1
Improved Styles And Presets
A new workflow adds a much faster way to apply both Styles and Presets to a Layer on one or multiple images, offering a direct control of opacity, imperative to wedding and portrait photographers.
Furthermore, a new Spring Styles Pack is included, offering bright pastel color grading to images, particularly helpful to wedding, portrait and landscape photography.
The Resource Hub has been introduced to offer quick access to free learning resources via a dynamic on-screen portal. Tutorials, news, webinars, blog posts and much more are offered in one convenient location to improve the user experience and learning curve with Capture One.

From the Capture One Blog:
Today Phase One released Capture One Pro 10.1 with a bunch of marvelous new features.
The first major update brings new Styles interface to Capture One 10, “before/after” button, improved “delete” concept, read-only PSD support, token watermarking and vectorscope color wheels. Did I miss something? Oh, yes, Fuji compressed RAW support! Now, when you’re intrigued enough to read the whole article, let’s discuss new features of Capture One 10.1 in all the gory details.
New Styles Interface
Styles is an amazing tool to make processing faster and easier. You can save your favorite settings to styles and apply them to any image in one click or use artistic styles to find the best color correction solution for your image.
Previously there was only one issue with Styles – drop-down menu was blocking the image you were working with.
It was absolutely out of Capture One workspace logic and simply inconvenient.
In Capture One 10.1 Styles interface was completely rebuilt, and now all the styles and presets are located in one window. On top of the new tool, you’ll find applied styles list, below it – User & Built-in styles and presets. To navigate through your collections faster, you can expand/collapse each section. All the options like Import, Save, and Stack styles are now available in a standard tool’s menu; the Delete Style option could be found with a right-click on the style. What is also important, Styles tool is now resizeable and relocatable as any other tool in Capture One. If you have dozens of styles, Capture One 10.1 update delivers a huge improvement to your workflow. At the same time, you can continue using the old UI, just add Styles tool to the toolbar, and that would bring back the drop-down menu.
Another interesting feature of the new tool is Style Pack. It allows you to import a set of styles with a sub-folder structure. Simply create a zip-archive with folders with styles and change its extension to .costylepack; then import the pack as a standard style. If you’re looking for professional Capture One styles, take a look at our film styles at CaptureOneStyles.com. Create a “film” color in Capture One using all the power of RAW without any special plugins. There are 12 styles available for free!
Phase One always had a particular vision of how the “before/after” feature should work in Capture One. There are “new/clone variant” options, temporary reset for each tool and the good old “reset->undo” to compare the image before and after. With the update, developers added a new feature to Reset tool: hold the Alt key and click Reset icon to see all the adjustments temporarily switched off. In other words, now we have an actual “before/after” button in Capture One! It would be great to have a separate shortcut for this action as well, and I hope we will see it in the future releases.
New Delete Concept
For some reason “deleting” images from catalogs/sessions was one of the most confusing things in Capture One. Depending on different factors (file location, session/catalog mode, etc.) there were many variations of what could happen to your file after deleting it.
Capture One 10.1 update clarifies this issue; now you have three options of deleting the file:
The safest way to delete an image.2. Move to Trash
If you’re deleting an image from an album, that option would only remove the picture from the album. The same applies to other variants of the image, and only the selected variants would be removed.
If you’re deleting an image from “folders” (folder on HDD, catalog’s Folders section), “Delete” would move the file to Catalog/Session trash.
Always moves an image to trash.3. Delete from Disk
If your image is located in an album, it would remove the file from the album and move it to Catalog/Session trash. All the image variants would be moved to trash as well.
For files in “folders” it works in the same way.
Always deletes an image from disk.Support for Fuji compressed format
If your image is located in an album, it would remove the file from the album and delete it from disk, skipping the trash.
Files in “folders” would also be deleted from disk.
This option doesn’t affect image variants – only selected variants would be deleted.
Yes, it’s here – Capture One 10.1 finally supports Fuji Compressed RAW files.
X-trans pipeline re-design
What? Another great news for Fuji photographers? With point one release, Capture One 10 delivers support for LCC, Chromatic Aberration Analysis, and Purple Fringing tools for X-trans type sensors Fuji cameras. OpenCL is now also supported by X-trans files, that would significantly increase overall processing speed.
PSD support (read-only) Well, it cost me a lot of effort not to use a clickbait headline here. “Capture One now supports PSD!”, you know. Sounds awesome. Unfortunately, it’s a read-only PSD support. It’s not half bad, but it lets you to only view and store PSD files in Capture One.
You can edit PSD file in Capture One and re-process it into a new file, but it would flatter PSD layers, what makes it quite meaningless. Anyway, thumbs up, Phase One! Step by step and we’ll see Capture One layers to PSD conversion feature!
That’s a really curious idea to implement the token system into the watermarking feature. If you’re not familiar with tokens, here is a short concept: you can take any metadata from your RAW (date, aperture, ISO, keywords, etc.) and use it for naming and processing.
With Capture One 10.1 you can use tokens for watermarking as well. I don’t think that most of the photographers would find it useful, but for editorial purposes that could work pretty well. For example, if you have a group of authors, there is now no need to add specific watermarks for each one of them. Simply add token “Creator” and Capture One would take the name from Creator IPTC field.
Improved Watermark Quality
The quality of text watermarks has been improved in Capture One 10.1 and it’s particularly noticeable on web-preview files.
Vectorscope orientation color wheels
Besides all these features, Capture One 10.1 brings vectorscope orientation color wheels as an additional option to the standard layout. Color wheels layouts could be changed in Color Settings. If you’ve never seen this type of color wheels, you’re probably not working with video. If you do – then Capture One would become now a little bit more convenient and habitual for you. For example, if you have used Tangent panels in other applications and got used to its workflow, now you can use the same layout in Capture One.
Automation with Apple Script
Apple Script integration becomes better with each major Capture One update. Capture One 10.1 version also brings support to some new functions:
(By the way, we are looking for an experienced Capture One and Apple Script users for collaboration. Let us know via email firstname.lastname@example.org.)
OpenCL: UX improvements
OpenCL is the main hardware acceleration technology used in Capture One and for supported graphic cards it gives a significant speed boost. At the same time, OpenCL may lead to some visual issues with specific graphic cards. Capture One 10.1 update makes it much easier to find out how OpenCL works with you machine. At the first run, you will see a message indicating Capture One is analyzing your hardware. You’ll find the result of the test in General> Hardware acceleration settings. In case of any issues there would be a link to a help page as well.
Memory management on Mac
There are some under the hood changes to reduce memory consumption in open Catalogs/Sessions on Mac.
New Cameras Support
New Lenses Support
With Capture One 10.1 release we can clearly see how subscription based model changed software development. New features are delivered by degrees now, that’s why I’ve written in Capture One 10 review “…we’ll see more new features in Capture One 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 releases”. No, Phase One, I didn’t violate your NDA, I’m just a prophet.
And my next prediction is… more great features in the 10.2! That’s why if you didn’t switch to Capture One 10 yet, now is the time. You’ll receive a mass of useful tools today and a new batch of them in the next free updates.
