Processing Variants Pro

Process images / Process recipe / Watermark / TIF / Web Contact Sheet

Capture One Pro enables you to prepare image variants for processing using Process Recipes from a dedicated Output Inspector. Although like the Export Variants feature, the customizable Process Recipes in the Ouput Inspector enable simultaneous processing of images into multiple file formats, sizes and color spaces. They're also used to control keywords, add or remove sharpening, and add watermarking to images. You can also find out how to rename images, set the output location and use the Batch Queue to reprocess images.

Proofing Colors

Capture One can proof colors in one color space while processing a file to a second color space.

Working with Process Recipes

Find out about Process Recipes, how to use them and customize them, or create new ones to suit your needs.

Image Settings (Basic Tab)

View or modify the Process Recipe’s preconfigured settings for file format, bit-depth, quality, output color space (ICC profile) and image dimensions from the Basic tab.

Output Location and Folder Naming

Set the destination location for output and create and name folders and sub-folders from the Process Recipe’s File tab. Find out how the Recipe's File tab integrates with the seperate Output Location and Naming tools.

Managing Sharpening and Cropping

When preparing images for processing and output from the Process Recipe’s Adjustments tab, you can apply sharpening based on the intended output device, or disable sharpening completely. You can also choose to include any cropping made during editing.

Managing Keywords and other Metadata

The Process Recipe’s Metadata tab is used to manage keywords, ratings and color tags, and other metadata such as copyright information, GPS and EXIF data. It can also be used to manage annotations and overlays.

Watermarking Pro

Find out how to add a watermark to variants when processing as JPEG, TIFF, PSD, or PNG, using the Process Recipe’s Watermark tool.

Batch Queue and Processing History

Capture One automatically processes and outputs batches of photos, arranging them in a queue or line as computer resources dictate. A history or record of images that have been previously output is maintained, making it easy to find individual photos for reprocessing.
