Phase One today updated their photo management and editing application, Capture One Pro, adding a number of new features, improved support for new cameras and enhanced image styling tools.
Capture One Pro 10.1 is a significant upgrade to the program, and the upgrade is free to existing users. The program has added the ability to view PSD files, as the company says “setting the stage for…Capture One…to serve as a front-end asset manager for Photoshop.”
Fujifilm users will have better conversions of their X-Trans files, with a redesigned RAW process providing access to some tools that weren’t available for the unique Fuji sensor.
The Styles workflow has been updated, allowing faster, easier application of custom styles and a new reset function makes it easier to quickly undo changes to evaluate images before and after changes have been applied.
Watermarking can now use a “token”, the same way that file naming and folder creation supports, so that watermarks can be dynamically created based on the name of the file.
Capture One Pro has added support for 13 new cameras, and dozens of new lenses. For a complete list of the new functions in Capture One Pro 10.1, see the press release below.
Capture One Pro 10.0 was released in December of 2016, and focused on speed and workflow. Our “what’s new” video with Phase One’s David Grover is available on our YouTube channel (and below.)

Capture One 10.1 is dedicated to improving the Capture One Pro experience.
The full list of new features and enhancements follows:
• PSD support (read only)
o Capture One Pro can now display PSD assets in the viewer, leveraging Capture One’s cataloging ability as a front-end for working with PSD files. Save PSDs from Photoshop with “maximize compatibility” enabled to view the returning asset in Capture One. (See release notes for complete information.)
• Delete Functionality
o Deleting images has been revised and appended with a new function to give more control over the culling process.
o As in previous versions, in an album, ‘delete’ removes the selected variant from the collection.
o Move to Catalog Trash (new feature) – Deletes from the collection, and sends the linked image to the Catalog/Session trash. This is especially useful for cleaning up albums in catalogs and at the same time removing the source file.
o As in previous versions, Delete from Disk removes the asset from the application and deletes the source image permanently from disk (after accepting the confirmation box).
• Redesigned X-trans support:
o Fuji Camera users sporting X-trans type sensors can now leverage the Capture One suite of tools: the LCC, Chromatic Aberration Analysis and Purple Fringing suppression tools can now all be used in the workflow.
o X-trans files are now also supported via OpenCL.
o Capture One 10.1 supports the Fuji Compressed RAW format
• Master temporary reset — Hold the alt key and click the master reset icon to see a quick before/after of the adjusted RAW file.
• The Styles UI is redesigned, allowing easier preview of large style collections and nested style collections without obscuring the main viewer with the menu.
• Token Watermarking
o The popular token technology comes to the Watermarking tool. Create a watermark with dynamically named content (e.g., file name) in a matter of clicks. Text and tokens can be mixed (as with other tools). The feature is also available in the Print watermark dialog.
o The quality of the Watermark text is improved, (this is especially noticeable in small file outputs).
• Vectorscope orientation color-wheels for Colorists
o The orientation of the color-wheels can be changed to the industry standard “Vectorscope” layout favored by video grading applications.
• Apple script
o More functionality has been added to the scripting dictionary, allowing the power user access to new automation routines. The functions added or improved are listed below:
Batch Rename/Batch Counter,
Next Capture Adjustments (configuration), Output counter,
Selections (improved syntax),
Stop live view,
Adjustments clipboard (copy/paste), Logging/Error message improvements
• OpenCL UX improvements have been made to the initialization process, with better messaging and status/result/troubleshooting tips in the preferences.
