Capture One Pro 23 Overview

Capture One Pro 23 is an advanced photo editing software with tools for cataloging, raw image file processing, tethered photography, and collaboration. The application offers compatibility with more than 500 individual cameras and raw file types, and features rich metadata editing capabilities.

For fine-tuned editing, a range of curves and color tools can be used in both global and local methods. When saving files for the web, a refined re-scaling engine works to maintain the original file's sharpness and clarity at smaller resized resolutions. For team projects or working with other editors, EIP files can be exported for simplified sharing. Version 23 adds five key new features. The program is compatible with Mac and Windows systems.

Faster Culling
Cull your images even faster. Rate and tag images directly in the importer or using the dedicated cull view once your images are already in Capture One Pro. Get an easier overview of similar images with automatic group view — this lets you choose your top selects even quicker. Plus, instant browsing allows you to click through your images with zero delay.
Smart Adjustments
Highly reduce editing time with Smart Adjustments. Get a similar look across photos that are shot under different lighting conditions by automatically adjusting exposure and white balance. This feature helps with portraits, wedding photos, and other photos with people in them.
Layers in Styles
Have more control over editing and full flexibility over your Style workflow with the ability to include layers. Apply your edits to multiple layers from a single Style. This allows for easy opacity control. Save your own Styles with layers in them or get layered versions of various Capture One Style Packs (such as Film Styles, Harmony, or Latitude), sold separately.
Change Capture Time
Ensure accurate orders of photos for easier culling by changing capture time. When shooting with two or more cameras that are out of sync, or when capture time is set to the wrong time zone, easily adjust the time on each image so the photos appear chronologically.
Variants in Albums
Easily sort different variants of the same image into separate albums for more efficient photo organization.

Capture One Pro 23 Reviews

Work great so far

By Julien

I like the product very much. Coming from Lightroom I feel at home (not like the miss transfer to Affinity Photo). Am only a bit scared about the pay updates - they seems expensive; but I would be happy as long as am not zone out of utilization by Apple or Capture one update.

More friendly to use

For me Capture one 23 is easier to use to work on the colors, especially color wheel is a brilliant one. The complementary color control is very easy to work. I like it better than others and find it useful in my post editing.

Great Photo Software

I love capture one . IMHO it's the best photo software for me . I wish the subscription wasn't so expensive and was closer to the cheaper PS and Lightroom combo subscription cost. I also wish it had an AI based de-noiser to match Lightroom's own .

Capture One has been my choice for many years, I have updated 10 different versions. Lately, they are just going mad with changing their licensing option, trying everyone to move over to subscriptions. But they are still selling the License for a single user. What got me so upset it that they change options of Live galleries a few times and not in a good way. It use to be that you get 5 galleries included in the license valide aweek. Now you have to pay $5 month to get anything and keep them 30days, and then i changes again. They maybe understand what makes them reduce the cost of hosting is subscriptions. Now you get the LIVE gallery option only with a Subscription or paying $5 per month for a few galleries. Make up your mind!

Fair program. I had problems getting the code from Capture One to download. Needed B and H help which I received. Bought it on sale. The regular price to expensive for what you receive.

I've had a older version of this software, so was somewhat familiar with operation. Have not used this version a lot yet, but am happy with results. I still have subscription to LR & PS so switch back and forth. Can be set-up to look like LR so that helps. Both have their good points

Fantastic software

If I buy this now (11/29/21), will this license qualify for the free upgrade to 22 in December?
Asked by: Eric
I bought the V21 (all camera) in October 2021. Just Downloaded V22 and the previous license number WORKED to activate V22. Need to provide the correct Capture One Profile when you registered with V21. It could be the different email address you used to download the V22 software, just a thought.

I own Capture One 12.1.4 Perpetual Licence - 3 seat. If I buy this perpetual license, will it upgrade my existing software and retain the 3 seats or will this be a new license with 2 seats and replace the software I have? The upgrade on Capture One site is $199 perpetual and $179 subscription.
Asked by: Mark
The license you already own is for a different version of Capture One entirely, so it would not apply at all toward the new purchase of a license for Version 21 of the Capture One Pro software.
