Capture One is a professional raw image converter which offers you beautiful rich colors and precise detail for getting the maximum out of your camera's raw files. In its latest release, Capture One 12 reveals a newly re-designed user interface with ease of use and speeding up your workflow at its core.
Capture One 12 is now more customizable with new iconography that does a better job of conveying to you the tools and their functionality. You will also find a re-designed shortcut manager with more than 500 assignable and customizable commands.
The menu system has been revamped according to its logical function making it easier for you to navigate the user interface, allowing you to work quicker, smarter, and you may even notice that it feels noticeably smoother thanks to the latest performance enhancements under the hood.
One new tool worth getting excited about is the new Luminosity masking feature which allows you to easily create a mask to control the Luma Range of your raw file. You can quickly create a mask of the brightest or darkest pixels in an image and make subtle changes way faster than you ever could before.
There is also a new Linear gradient mask and a radial gradient mask which is useful for creating quick subtle realistic looking vignettes in your images. The masks can be rotated and adjusted after creation for maximum control.
One thing to be aware of though, if you are new to Capture One 12 you may find the interface a little intimidating at first, that is until you realize how easy it is to customize the software to suit your personal workflow.
You can check out the new interface in the video below.
