Format

  • Use a TIFF to preserve maximum quality. A TIFF also enables the option of 16 bit output.
  • Use a JPEG file setting to attain a smaller sized file (compared to a TIFF) for convenience.
  • The JPEG QuickProof format setting creates images for evaluation purposes. Capture One creates the image file from the proxy file and the settings file without additional calculations or filters. JPEG QuickProof should not be considered as a completed file; it is ideal for ultra quick evaluation purposes only.
  • Outputting to DNG format in Capture One, in essence, creates a new RAW file. There are no options for size or compression with this format. All changes made to the image will be discarded when creating the DNG file.

Options

  • TIFF files can be compressed. A TIFF is a lossless format, as are both forms of TIFF compression; LZW and ZIP.
  • Adjust the quality of a JPEG by adjusting the slider. The lower the quality, the smaller the file and the greater the loss of information. JPEG compression also adds noise to an image.

ICC Profile

  • The choice of color space depends on the final purpose of an image file.
  • ICC profiles can be selected in the Process Recipe tool. Alternatively, the color space can also be changed by going to View>Proof Profile. Choose a color space and make final adjustments after converting an image file.

ICC profiles can be selected in the Process Recipe tool

Resolution

  • The Process Recipe tool features a Resolution field that can be change to pixels per inch, cm or mm.

Scale

Scale
The Scale options in a recipe determine how much a cropped image will be scaled when processed with that recipe. All scaling options will retain the original aspect ratio - scaling options will never cause a processed image to be distorted, cropped or rotated with other proportions other than the Capture One view.

Fixed: The image is scaled proportionally with the percentage specified.
Capture One can scale images on output from 10-250%. (Scaling is carried out on the original data and is of the highest quality so it is suitable for any type of use.)

Width:
The image is scaled proportionally to the specified width.

Height: The image is scaled proportionally to the specified height.

Dimensions: An image is scaled proportionally to fit inside a box with the specified dimensions. Use this when you want to process a mix of portrait and landscape images.
The dimensions are interpreted as either width x height or height x width whatever yields the largest scale.

Width x Height: The image is scaled proportionally to fit inside a box with the specified width and height.
Use this to ensure that a set of processed images with different aspect ratios will fit on certain sized paper.

Long Edge: The image is scaled proportionally with the longest edge set to the specified value.

Short Edge: The image is scaled proportionally with the shortest edge set to the specified value.

Never Upscale: Limit the scale to a maximum of 100%.

Output scaling

  • Capture One has the ability to scale images on output from 10-250%.
  • Upsizing images is as simple as typing in the output size required. As the scaling is carried out on the original data, the scaling is of the highest quality and suitable for any type of use.

  • Select an option from the Open With drop down menu to automatically open a processed file into another selected application once it has been processed in Capture One.
