Capture One 20, the newest version of the photo editing and organization software, has released today. Adopting a new, year-based naming convention, Capture One 20 boasts a number of improved features from Capture One 12, centering around refining the user experience.
According to the press release, developing Capture One 20 "focused on user feedback to deliver a refined design with new processing capabilities and significant workflow enhancements. Users can work faster than ever and more intuitively, meaning Capture One 20 is more useful and more efficient in everyday work, even easier for new users, more customizable, and still without compromise.”
Among the new touted features: a new basic color editor, crop tool, new high dynamic range tools, better noise reduction quality, greater layer functionality particularly with copy and paste, and added DNG support. The interface and appearance also received upgrades, including the ability to create pinned and scrolling sections for tools. A minor yet promising new feature particularly for event photographers, "Select Next When," automatically advances to the next image when applying a star rating or color tag to accelerate workflows.
