It may feel like Capture One Pro 8 was just released not too long ago, but Phase One isn’t slowing down the development of their beloved raw converter and photo editing software. Today, Capture One Pro 9 was released and it is their best image processor ever.
With Capture One Pro 9, Phase One has completely updated the contrast engine. The new contrast engine changes the algorithm used for color, saturation, and contrast. On top of the overhaul, there are several new image editing tools that are sure to make their way into your workflow.
New tools include the ability to create masks based on color, more brush options, Luma curves and local curves creation, tethering improvements, and better DNG support.
Along with the awesome new tools are new asset management controls. The keywords tool and keyword library allow you to greater manage your library of photos by adding keywords that can be managed in lists. These keywords are sortable and can be rearranged for single image selections.
Capture One Pro 9 is available now from the Phase One store. New customers can purchase Capture One Pro 9 for $299, or sign up for a subscription-based pricing for $15 per month. Owners of Capture One Pro 7 or 8 can upgrade to this latest version for $99.
