Learn about out the benefits of an Enhanced Image Package.

Enhanced Image Package (EIP) is a convenient way of packing and sending your master file for a true Capture One user based workflow. The image file will be seen exactly as you created it; the original untouched RAW file will be packed with your setting file, ICC and LCC profile.

Using .EIP will, in essence, simply pack the aforementioned files. .EIP does not copy the files so you will not need more disk space. You will find the .EIP in the same folder as the RAW file. The .EIP will have the same name as the original RAW file and the .EIP will support RAW files from any Phase One back. EIP files are reccommended for use in Sessions.

 

Pack as .EIP

  1. Select the intended images that will be packed as .EIP
  2. Choose File>Pack as EIP.
  3. The files are now automatically packed and will be named .EIP

Note: EIP is not recommended for use with catalogs. 

Unpack .EIP files

  1. Select the images that need to be unpacked.
  2. Choose File>Unpack EIP.
  3. The files are now automatically unpacked and will display the original file extension.

Note: An EIP is not recommended for use with catalogs. Always unpack an EIP before using it in a catalog.

Automatically convert all Phase One digital files to .EIP

  1. Choose Capture One>Preferences.
  2. Open the Image tab.
  3. Check mark Pack as EIP when importing.
  4. Check mark Pack as EIP when capturing.

The image file is now integrated in the Enhanced Image Package. The .EIP is simply replacing the image files. The setting files will be removed from the relevant folders and will also be included in the package.

Note: An EIP is not recommended for use with catalogs. Always unpack an EIP before using it in a catalog.
