Capture One could be brought down to being a PhotoShop-like desktop program that includes a package of various designing and styling choices, and virtually any kind of photo-editing feature you might need in your path to perfection. Now it wouldn't actually be right to call this program simply a copy-paste of PhotoShop because there are definitely some differences that long-term can make a huge difference, especially those who are included in the Pro version of the app. Capture One can be transferred to your mobile device and so, if needed, edited from either phone or tablet.

Now that we have gone over the main focus of the described software let's list some of those features. First is, of course, correction of brightness, noisiness, clearness, contrast, and many more parameters that connect with the image and influence directly what will come out of it. You can choose among multiple ready presets and templates, or create one that fits you the best, to apply the wanted changes in near clicks, with effects being applied in sort of a bundle. There are more, no doubt, here they are:


Capture One is an ultimate package of addons, plugins, and features, all aiming at providethe best photo-editing experience, while also adding some new things like AI-based ones
  • Influence the exposure, color palette, white balance, dynamic range, RGB-representing graphs that can be also tricked manually, and much more. All of this is mainly to best suit the styling of the image
  • AI masking, censoring, and some more AI-centred features contribute to both the production speed and the output quality due to the new, yet advanced, technology 
  • Keyboard tagging, shortcuts
  • Detailed layer editing that is done seamlessly and merges greatly with all the features listed above
  • Correction of lens profiles and various options attached to it
  • Automatic quality adjustments are done on time to the picture (though this can be disabled in the highly customizable settings menu)

There is so much more that could be said about this great piece of photo-editing software, but honestly, we hope you just got the idea. The opinion may vary from person to person, surely, but on average applications like these are perceived greatly by the public and for a good reason, quality!
