Auto Adjustments

Exposición / Balance de blanco / / Rotación

Capture One's Auto adjust option can correct several parameters including the Exposure, Contrast and Brightness, High Dynamic Range, Levels and Rotation all with just a click of an icon.

 

Quick overview of Auto adjustment

Capture One has several individual tools that can apply automatic adjustments. By applying a single Auto adjust command, all of these tools can be made to apply the adjustments automatically, making it a good starting point for the various tools. In fact, the option to apply the Auto adjustments is included in the importer dialog, so you could let Capture One adjust the images while they're being imported. The Auto adjust feature can automatically adjust the following parameters:

  • White Balance
  • Exposure
  • Contrast and Brightness
  • High Dynamic Range
  • Levels (combined RGB mode or individual Channel mode)
  • Rotation
  • Keystone

Not all of the parameters have to be applied, you can select those you want before applying them. Note auto Keystone adjustment is only applicable to images captured with a Phase One IQ series digital back.

Select adjustments

As some of the parameters may not be relevant to certain images, you can select which of them you want enabled before applying the adjustments. Note the Auto Keystone adjustment is only applicable to images captured with a Phase One IQ series digital back.

  1. Choose between one of two options:
    • From the main menu, choose Adjustments > Configure Auto Adjustments, or
    • Long press on the A icon in the tool bar, then enable the following with a check-mark as appropriate;
  • White Balance
  • Exposure
  • Contrast and Brightness
  • High Dynamic Range
  • Levels (combined RGB mode or individual Channel mode)
  • Rotation
  • Keystone

Apply Auto adjustment to images

The Auto adjust feature can be used to apply several parameters. You don't have to apply all of them, you can select which of the parameters you want enabled before you start. Each of the tool's used are updated afterwards to reflect the settings, making it a great starting point for additional fine-tuning.

  1. Select the image or images you want apply the adjustments to. (When applying to multiple images, make sure Edit Selected Variants option is enabled in the tool-bar).
  2. From the main menu choose Adjustments > Auto Adjust (Cmd-L) or select the (A) icon in the main tool bar.
  3. The images are updated with the adjustments. The tools used are also updated with new settings, which can be further modified.

Apply Auto adjustment on import

When importing images, the option to apply adjustments automatically is included in the importer dialog. Simply enable the Auto Adjust option with a check-mark, and every image will have the auto corrections applied. Note this may slow down the import process.

  1. Select which of the parameters you want applied first before starting the import. (See above for more information.)
  2. Insert memory card to an attached card-reader.
  3. Open the import dialog (if not already automatically opened).
  4. Select images for import and select the relevant settings. For more information, see the section on Importing images.
  5. From the Adjustments panel, enable the Auto Adjust option with a check-mark. This setting is remembered the next time the importer is opened using the same document type (Session or Catalog).
