Exposure, contrast and saturation
Perform basic image editing with intelligently engineered tools. Contrast adjustments protects saturation and color transitions, brightness adjustments protects highlights, and saturation protects colors from burning out.
High Dynamic Range
Shadow and Highlight recovery are important tools for recovering the color information in your RAW files. Capture One ensures a natural look while processing the data from your camera to the highest image quality.
Curves and levels
Besides the standard Levels tool, RGB curve, and individual channel curves (Red, Green and Blue), Capture One features a Luma Curve, effectively controlling the luminosity without affecting Hue and Saturation.
Clarity & Structure
Add Clarity and Structure to strenghten the impact of your image while preserving shadow and highlight details. Four methods of Clarity are available for different use scenarios. Use Structure to add extra definition to fine details.
The curve in Base Characteristics describes the basic tone mapping of all pixels, effectively managing the initial 'look' of your RAW file. Besides the standard curve, other curves are available, providing additional options for controlling your image.
Styles and Presets
Apply your favourite visual styles to your images. A pre-designed range of visual adjustments can be applied with few clicks using styles and presets. Select from the built-in styles packs, create your own, or install third-party styles packs. You can also choose from one of the many additional Capture One Styles Packs.
