The answer is probably more profane than you think: Instead of developing a real sophisticated algorithm to get the best resolution out of the source image, the software developers went the "safe" way: add enough crop that will always and under all circumstances deliver an image that is "properly cropped" (whatever that means).
I'm saying this as a ...
More image information? Yes. Better image quality? No. The parts being truncated don't scale well because of the rectangular pattern of your sensor's pixel wells versus the curved shape of the correction. So a lot of artifacts can show up in those areas.
Like many products intended for mainstream consumption (as opposed to niche products used by experts in ...
While there are different raw-processing algorithms that do produce different results, such minute differences, which can be seen at only extreme magnification, are unlikely to be significant.
The differences you see may be caused by differences in magnification algorithms that are used for the sole purpose of displaying the image on screen. To control for ...
If you are referring to this EIP File Format – Enhanced Image Package, the format is specific to Capture One. Support by other programs is unlikely, and Adobe's list of supported file formats for Photoshop does not include it.
If you don't have the original files from which the EIP file was created, you may be able to use a standard unzipping tool to ...
Its generally very hard to replicate any complicated filter exactly not knowing what exactly is being done by it, but the feel can be usually pretty closely matched. From what you have shown I believe that the "gritty look" can be replicated through a mixture of a duplicate layer with hard light overlay (with reduced opacity and slight blurring of the top ...
What you can do is to add the year, month and date to the filename. With this you can have unique filename. The only problem you will have the filename numbers will not be consecutive.
You can use this question/answers as reference/idea
quotes from some of the answers:
rename the files to include the original shooting date. So instead of
I'll precede this question with the caveat that I have no experience with any of the specific tools you mention.
Currently Capture Pilot supports iOS 7.0 and greater. It is certainly possible that they could change this to require a newer version of iOS such as 8.0 and its derivatives. I would say that is somewhat unlikely in the nearterm(year or two) but ...
You can use digiCamControl to connect multiple cameras and control it in same time, but you can't trigger multiple cameras in same time via USB connection will be a lag between cameras capture around 200-800 ms.
If you want do same programmatically you can use the CameraControl.Devices nuget package for it
A small technicality
In Capture One if you want to organize your photos inside of a catalog you have to use albums.
That depends. You could also just use folders on your hard drive - I, for one, create a folder for every day (named <yyyy>-<mm>-<dd> (<TITLE>). Or, if it is a project that spans multiple days, it gets a main folder ...
While the solution below did work, I found a better one. It seems like there is something fishy about the built-in color profile after all. When I switched to sRGB IEC61966-2.1 everything looks much better.
I figured out two solutions:
One way had to do with the fact that I exported to regular JPG with 8 bits of color depth. When I changed to JPEG 2000 ...
Fuji and Capture one have a really nice feature in version 12 that lets Capture one start with editing your RAW with the film simulation option you set in camera. That is why the RAW image in capture one is showing as B&W right from import.
You can override this. On the "Colour" tool tab there is a tool window called "Base Characteristics". In that tool ...
The "Resolution" in this case has no effect on the exported quality.
If you intend to print, you could set this to the DPI of the printer, which could help making it easier later to get the size right when printing later.
The important option here is the "Scale" which you have currently set to Fixed: 100% - That means that the output will be the exact same ...
As far as I know, C1 does not support alpha channels. That might be because photos typically offer no alpha channel.
You say that you want consistent color correction, crop and positioning of your photos - I would suggest that you get those things done first in C1, then export the pictures for use in Photoshop.
When you change to a different tool, the part of the image you have selected (that is, the part inside the border box) is expanded to fill the space. The part you have not selected (that is, the part outside the crop you have selected) is no longer shown.
If you have not selected a crop, then the camera has done it automatically. Many mirrorless cameras ...
See the circled Icon that looks like a stack of images? It toggles between editing all selected images ("variants") at once and only editing the currently shown selected ("primary") image. Simply deactivate it to get the behavior you want.
Image Alchimist's article on "Capture One Variants" states:
First, as I told you, the Primary Variant is always in ...
Yes, this is a pain in the ass. However, there is a simple solution. Create a custom tab JUST for the color editor.
Right-click on the tabs bar
Select Add Tool Tab
Name it what you want
Click on the tab you just created
Right-click anywhere in the free space of the tab
Select Add Tool
Pick Color Editor from the drop menu
Capture One has a minimum screen height of 800px. If there is not enough space Color editor cannot expand. To fix the problem you can do one of several things:
Set your screen resolution to at least 800px in height, set text
scaling to 100%.
Drag the color editor tool so it is floating on screen.
Remove extra tools from the color tab to give color editor ...
If we are talking about a catalog, the answer is: Yes and no.
Full disclosure: I have no idea if there is a chance when using sessions (never used one) or if there are some highly-specialized programs that might do the trick - at least my Google-Fu did not reveal any ground-breaking program for the job. Also, consider trying some recovery tools - avoid ...
It is possible in Lightroom, but not directly. The same method should also work for Capture One.
I use qDslrDashboard to automatically download all pictures taken with the camera. Then Lightroom is configured to monitor and auto-import images from the download folder. I can control the camera via the computer, or shoot with the camera directly, and have ...
I dunno. I'm not sure if it's changed in v 8 but you're right, C1P's implementation of keywording was lame.
Media Pro does have hierarchical keywords, but it's an organizer, and seems to be languishing a bit at Phase One. There's a demo though, so why not try it yourself? It's horrid on the Mac, but maybe better on a PC.
I also liked Capture One's out of ...
You need to use X-Rite's i1Profiler software. Unlike the ColorChecker Passport software, it can create ICC profiles from the ColorChecker that Phase One can use. It looks like it only comes bundled with one of the X-Rite i1 products.
After some searching around I found the following information that a user posted after being frustrated that Capture One only supports ICC profiles but X-Rite creates DNG profiles:
I discovered that if you are using Capture One, all you need to do is photograph the Munsell Color Target and use the Auto Color ...
It sounds like a limitation of the Canon SDK that it connects to one camera at a time.
Multi-camera implementations would either need to disconnect/reconnect to each camera in turn (which would introduce quite a lot of lag) or be written from the ground up to talk directly to the device(s) across USB.
Depending on your needs, gPhoto2 may be suitable, it ...
As far as I know (and I work with Capture One for around two years now), there is no way to stack random images. This stands true even with Capture One 11.
However, it is possible with Variants:
Stolen from the above linked blog entry on the Image Alchemist
Variants are Capture One's version of Lightroom's Virtual Copies - they are copies of a file's ...
