Capture One 11.1 Released by Phase One

Capture One 11.1 offers a variety of updated features including improved Styles and presets workflow, support for 11 new cameras — a7 III and Fuji X-H1 and 10 new lenses — as well as an all-new Resource Hub.

It’s well timed because I noticed a stop in my workflow when using layers and wishing I had a style for a layer. Specifically, in cycling the subjects are either wearing a helmet or eyewear and usually both.

I typically create a “face” mask and then bump up the exposure, sharpen it, or reduce shadows. The task is predictable and I’d expect it would speed up post production to apply a style to it. In 11.0, a style applies to the entire photo even when a mask is selected for editing. Capture One fixed what I considered a bug and called it a feature, but hey…that’s still good progress.

New In Capture One 11.1

Improved Styles And Presets

A new workflow adds a much faster way to apply both Styles and Presets to a Layer on one or multiple images, offering a direct control of opacity, imperative to wedding and portrait photographers. Furthermore, a new Spring Styles Pack is included, offering bright pastel color grading to images, particularly helpful to wedding, portrait and landscape photography.

Resource Hub

The Resource Hub has been introduced to offer quick access to free learning resources via a dynamic on-screen portal. Tutorials, news, webinars, blog posts and much more are offered in one convenient location to improve the user experience and learning curve with Capture One.

Normalization Tool

The normalization tool provides a reference point for exposure and white balance for batch adjustments, now allowing any color to be used when previously the only option was a neutral grey.
