Change the Default Settings

Capture One automatically selects a recommended default setting for all image files from recognized cameras. It is also possible to apply a user defined default setting.

 

Change the default setting

Individual adjustments can be made to most Color, Exposure, Details and Metadata tool parameters and used as the default setting. Once selected, this user-defined default setting will be automatically applied to every subsequent file from a specific camera make and model. This procedure is recommended for advanced users only. There is a vast range of possible user-defined default settings.

  1. For example, if your camera habitually under- or over-exposes captured image files, adjust the Exposure slider to an appropriate value.
  2. Click on the action menu icon and select the Save as Defaults for... (relevant camera model) option at the top of the tool tab.
  3. Add any other Color, Exposure, Details and Metadata adjustments using the same procedure, if necessary.
  4. This new Default setting will now be applied to every subsequent file from this specific camera make and model.
