Working with Colors

Capture One provides a number of tools to adjust colors. The tools are designed to support your workflow when handling specific issues like saturation, white balance or skin tone.

Working with ICC Profiles, Tone Curves and Process Engines

Use the Capture One Base Characteristics panel to define the camera’s default reproduction of both color and tonal characteristics. The panel also allows the upgrading of the process engine when working on images in a newer version of Capture One.

Working with White Balance

Use the Capture One White Balance tool to establish perfect, natural colors and neutral grays.

Working with the Normalize tool

You can use the Normalize tool to quickly set a working baseline for both Exposure and White Balance between two images. In addition, when light levels are controlled and consistent between captures, it can be used to make very precise adjustments.

Color Balance Pro

The Color Balance tool enables you to fine-tune color easily, and offers individual control over the shadow, mid-tone and highlight areas of the image.

Working with the Color Editor

The Color Editor enables you to select and adjust a narrow color range without affecting other colors in an image.

Black & White

The Black & White tool enables users to convert images into razor sharp monotone photos.

Displaying Color Values Pro

Capture One can display multiple RGB, CMYK or Lab color readouts at various points in an image.
