Two Ways to Automatically Send Images from Lightroom (or Capture One) into Apple Photos

If you’re on a Mac and you want to send your finished images from Lightroom (or Capture One) to Apple Photos, to sync to your devices for example, then you can do it manually by exporting from one application and importing into the other. This can be a bit tedious, but there are also some ways you can automate the process. This involves exporting to a folder in the finder from Lightroom or capture One, and having that automatically import into Photos.

Capture One Quick Tip: Simulate Lightroom’s “Grid” Mode Keyboard Shortcut

This is a really specific and kind of nerdy tip, but I’ve found that this helps me speed up my workflow in Capture One considerably. If you’re used to Lightroom, you may be used to switching between the grid and develop modules using the “G” and “D” keys. I do this all the time, when I’m working on a project, and I want to jump to different Images. I find it easier than scrolling up and down the film strip at the bottom of the develop module. To do this in Capture One, you show and hide the viewer. There is a keyboard shortcut for this already, but it’s hard to remember and physically awkward to press. Luckily it’s easy to change.

How to create a Polariser effect in Capture One

Using a polariser to enhance the blues in your image was probably one of the first filters that I ever used when learning photography. You can also match this effect in software, although you can’t easily replicate a polariser’s other feature which is to cut down on reflections. In Capture One, the obvious way to replicate a polariser is to use the colour editor tool, however, it’s not as straight forward as it seems. In this short video I show you how to create a polariser effect and save it for reuse.

Coming Soon: T-Pan for Capture One

I’m working on the long process of converting some of my most popular Lightroom presets over to Capture One, and with that in mind, I’ll soon be launching my next set of Style Packs: T-Neg for Capture One. This is based on the Lightroom pack of the same name, and it’s probably one of my two most popular sets. T-Pan is based on black and white film, and was created by using scanned film as a reference.

Mastin Labs Fujicolour Original for Capture One: A Quick First Look

I’m a little late with this but following on from their first Capture One set, Mastin Labs has released another film emulation style pack. This set, called “Fujicolour Original” covers Fujifilm negative stocks, and is similar to their previous Kodak set, and the company’s Lightroom presets of the same name. They sent me a set to try out, and so here is my quick first impressions review.

Capture One In Depth: Importing

In this new series, I’m going to go through the basics of Capture One in depth, both for new users and anyone who wants to learn more. When the series is complete, I will release a compendium as an eBook Guide. To get started, I’m going to take a look at how to import images into Capture One, and how to navigate the Capture One import dialog.

A Capture One (Express) to Lightroom Technique For Fuji Shooters (How to Use Capture One Express like X-Transformer - sort of)

I’ve often gotten questions from readers as to whether there is any way to use Capture One Express in a similar fashion to Iridient X-Transformer, in order to produce a file that you can then import into Lightroom for further editing. While there is no direct way to do this in the exact same way it is with Iridient X-Transformer, getting these questions did get the cogs in my brain working! I wondered if there was a way one could use Capture One’s flat profile to achieve something similar. So, after spending some time experimenting, I’ve come up with a possible solution.
