Capture One Pro 6 (Software Download) from Phase One is professional image-editing software that works with all popular DSLR cameras and many digital camera backs to support RAW image capture & conversion and editing, organization, and delivery of large volumes of professional images, whether they originate as RAW, TIFF, or JPEG files. With advanced features such as local adjustments, support for 64-bit processing, and keystone correction, you can take control of your digital images like never before – prior to showing them to clients.

Capture One Pro supports DSLR camera models as well as digital backs, and with its monitoring functions, you can also use your computer monitor as a sort of digital back. Live View lets you see the camera's preview image on a computer screen in real time, to aid in composition, lighting, and focus adjustments. With tethered capture, you can import and view images as you shoot them. And using the Capture Pilot function, you can use an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch to view, zoom, and pan within images wirelessly, while you shoot.

Tasks that were once relegated to post-production can now be executed during the shoot, speeding up your project turnaround time and allowing you to respond instantly to client requests. Featuring a long list of organizational tools, the software also helps you manage the almost countless shots you take during the average project – and keeps sessions separate. The result is a streamlined workflow that helps you serve your clients better.

Non-destructive local adjustments let you edit selective parts of an image for unlimited creative control and results.

Deepen the colors of the sky, for instance, while leaving the ocean untouched

White Balance
Capture One makes it simple to achieve your desired white balance setting. An image can be quickly corrected with a built-in auto white balance feature. Alternatively, use the white balance picker to select a neutral area of an image (or a grey or dark white area if possible) that will be used as a reference point to map all other colors. The Skin Tone white balance tool achieves exact skin tone colors without using a grey reference
Clarity Tool
Use the Clarity Tool to improve hazy images by adjusting local contrast and a small amount of sharpness. The tool now allows negative clarity values, which helps smooth out local contrast in portrait images
Sharpening
With Capture One you get a range of sharpening presets, formulated to provide a good starting point for sharpening images for most purposes. By default, the sharpening settings have been configured to provide a good-looking image on a screen and are an excellent basis for your own sharpening adjustments
Overlay
The Overlay tool provides advanced composition assistance. This function is often used to shoot an image that will match a specific layout. For example, an image could be captured for a magazine cover where space needs to be left for a masthead and headline copy. Simply drop an image file (with the magazine headlines and copy) into the Overlay function and alter the opacity, scale, and placement as needed
High Dynamic Range
Use the High Dynamic Range tool to recover shadow or highlight detail. The tool helps you to perfect high-contrast scenes by eliminating blown-out highlights and flat shadows
