B&H Event Space: Capture One Pro 8, an Introduction to New Tools


Phase One releases the next iteration of the professional's choice in imaging software, with Capture One Pro 8. Join one of the members of the COP8 technical team, Margaret K. Lamb, as she walks you through the new suite of powerful imaging tools. Capture One Pro 8 now allows you to control the content of your images completely and to remove unwanted objects or blemishes. The new clone and heal layers let you perform simple cloning or advanced healing, with full control over the size and shape of the affected areas. Now you can bring out even more detail in highlights and shadows—even in over- or underexposed images. The improved HDR tool helps you perfect high-contrast scenes by recovering blown-out highlights and opening up dark shadows, all from one single capture.

Learn how to use the full complement of Local Adjustments. Fine-tune details with, for instance, luminance noise reduction and white balance in targeted areas of your images for unlimited creative control. Work directly on the RAW file to ensure maximum quality and detail retention and save time by making all adjustments in one application. Learn how to save time and money! Streamline your workflow with the Soft Proof functions of Capture One Pro 8. Output to any RGB and CMYK workspace and soft-proof the results on a calibrated monitor. With this feature, you can see how your images will look in their intended color space without wasting time or print runs later in the process.

Capture One Pro 8 is a professional RAW converter, offering you ultimate image quality with accurate colors and incredible detail from more than 300 high-end cameras—straight out of the box. It offers cutting-edge tethered capture, powerful digital asset management, extensive adjustment tools, and a flexible workflow.
