While Lightroom dominates the digital photography software market, Capture One Pro is a powerful alternative—despite the fact that many photographers even know that it exists. We’re working with the company that makes the software, Phase One, to share content about incorporating Capture One into your workflow and let you know there’s another choice in editing after Aperture was end of lifed by Apple.
Capture One Pro 10 is impressive because of it’s tremendous growth in performance and features over the last few years, thanks in part to the 2010 purchase of Expression Media from Microsoft, which gave the program the robust asset management capabilities of iView Media Pro. For former fans of Aperture, Capture One provides a much closer feature set than Lightroom.
In this video walkthrough from our friends at Digital Photography Pro, Phase One’s David Grover shares the features that set Capture One Pro apart from Lightroom and shows off the newest features in Capture One Pro 10. There’s also talk about the new speed of the Capture One Pro 10 RAW engine, the differences between Lightroom and Capture One Pro’s interface, the new sharpening tools, and more.
