Comprehensive in its capabilities, Capture One Pro 12 from Phase One is a refined raw conversion, photo editing, and tethered shooting solution offering a great deal of control over both production and pre-production workflows. Version 12 of this software focuses on three masking tools for making more precise selections. The Luminosity Mask enables making selections based on lightness of an area, making it easier to selectively edit just the shadows or highlights of an image. And inspired by lens-based effects, both Linear and Radial Gradient Masks can be used to produce smooth transitions and gradations similar to graduated filters or vignetting effects. Complementing these editing capabilities, Capture One 12 also saw a slew of updates in regard to its interface, with a revised color scheme to support longer editing sessions, a keyboard shortcut search to help expedite switching tools and functions, and support for third-party plug-in extensions to accentuate Capture One's capabilities. These updates also work in concert with the layer-based editing workflow adopted in the previous version, for making selective edits and local adjustments with greater precision.
