Choosing the software to suit your specific needs is not an easy decision for most. A quick search of internet forums will introduce you to zealots from all sides who will tear down anyone who doesn’t use their chosen software. It’s unhelpful at best. As someone who has played for both sides over the past few years, I’ve had a good look into both Capture One and Lightroom. Today, we’re going to look at five reasons why Capture One is simply better than Lightroom. Next week, we’ll do the opposite.
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.
If you're looking for a raw processor that does more and are not currently using Capture One, it's likely that in your quest for a solution, Capture One has crossed your mind. Making the switch to Capture One from Lightroom, for example, is easier and quicker than you think, and right now, with Capture One's Black Friday sale, it's the perfect time to buy.

Learning any new photography software can be challenging and time consuming. Even when we learn enough to do basic image edits, we often overlook tools that would speed up our process or give us better results. That's why we teamed up with Quentin Decaillet to produce The Complete Capture One Editing Guide.
If you are an avid instagram user, you have probably noticed that almost all professionals tether their cameras with bright orange cables to a computer, there is a lot of kit involved in this and finding all the parts can be tricky when you don't know what you are looking for.
A few weeks ago, Capture One released a version specifically tailored for large studios and businesses. While some could have thought the Danish company was moving all its efforts towards this market, it's actually far from the truth! It was just a step to carry the needs of all professionals.
The creators of JPEGmini, the popular photo-resizing application and plug-in for Lightroom and Photoshop, have announced that the plug-in is now available for Capture One as well. This brings the remarkable compression features of JPEGmini directly into the application, making it easier and more efficient for photographers using Capture One to create images at vastly reduced sizes.
