Last week Phase One launched another set of their own first party Style Packs. They are called “‘Pacific’ & ‘Infinite Peaks’ Latitude Style packs” and are designed by acclaimed commercial photographer John Schell and Fujifilm X- Photographer Bryan Minear respectively.
Ever since Adobe introduced the new “Texture” slider in Lightroom, and Capture One, I was curious to see if I could do something similar in Capture One. After a little experimentation, I was able to create a similar effect. In this video I show you how!
One of the features mentioned in the release notes for the latest version of Capture One is the improved rendering of X-Trans files. I briefly touched on this when I posted about the update last week, but as I was away, I didn’t have access to my main computer to properly show you the changes. So in this post I will go into it in a little more detail.
To celebrate summer, and, well, I’m having a flash sale on selected Lightroom presets and Capture One styles from my digital download store. There’s up to 50% off on some presets, and I’m heavily discounting my older 1st Lightroom preset collection, so you can get it for just €25 (regular price €65).You can see all of the products on sale here on the “on sale” section.
Phase One are having a limited time deal for their affiliate partners and their readers. They are offering 15% off select versions of Capture One. You simply follow this link and enter your email address to get a discount code.
One of the more consistent themes that I constantly hear about Capture One from Lightroom users is that they find it hard to use, and that there is a steep learning curve. It took me a while to be fully comfortable with the software, so I can understand where a lot of people are coming from. With that in mind I wanted to start a new set of videos to help users who are coming from Lightroom get to grips with Capture One.
In this video I look at how to fix a burnt out sky, that you can’t recover with the highlights recovery or by adjusting exposure, in Capture One. Sometimes if your image is slightly overexposed, or if you’re photographing a high contrast scene you may come across a situation where the highlights are clipped and you can’t recover them. There is still a fairly easy way to fix the problem though, and in this video I show you how.
This is just a super quick public service announcement and I almost missed this, but Phase One decided to extend the 50% sale of Capture One for the Fuji and Sony specific version until the end of April. It was supposed to end in March but they said it was so successful tat they were extending it to the end of April.
In the post I wrote yesterday about Capture One, I listed some of the things that it doesn’t have that are features of Lightroom. One of the things that I didn’t mention was Dehaze, and a reader Kindly pointed this out. The thing is though, you can achieve a similar effect to Lightroom’s Dehaze in Capture One, but it’s just a little bit more work to set up. In order to show you how to do this, I created a little video..
I’ve been covering Capture One for a while here on the blog, and it seems that there is more and more interest of late. However, often when I do cover it, I get comments or mail from people who complain that it doesn’t have this feature or that feature, and some are upset with me for not pointing this out. So I thought I would try and do as comprehensive as possible, a comparison between Lightroom ad Capture one, listing the pros and cons of each, as well as why I like it so much.
While it’s not directly supported, its relatively easy to get Luminar Flex to work in Capture One. There are two main ways to do it and in this video I show you both methods and the pros and cons of each.
Mastin Labs, which is a popular creator of Lightroom Presets has announced a new style pack for Capture One bringing their Kodak film emulation presets to Phase One’s software.
I’m happy to announce that my latest set of styles for Capture One is now available. T-Neg for Capture One is designed to create a film like grade to your image. The pack consists of 10 virtual “films” of my own creation, and each film has 5 variations.
A while ago I posted a collection of some free styles for Capture One here on my blog, but I realise that they were buried a little in an old blog post, so I’ve put them over on my store to make them easier to find. There are a few different sets of styles in the collection, and they were mostly experiments and various looks that I had created, but I never really made into a consistent pack. I do have another set of premium styles coming soon, and I’ll talk more about that in a minute.
I had blogged about this issue back in 2017, and as its still something that is present to some extent in the Capture One 12, I thought that I would revisit the fix I use for this. So rather than re-do the blog post I thought I would do it as a video. Basically, the issue with the way Capture One renders its previews is that it doesn’t render certain things properly, and in some cases the preview an be quite soft. I came up with a way to use recipe proofing to generate a more representative preview and in this video I show you how to do this…
