Phase One Capture One Pro 11 Launches

Capture One Pro 11, image-editing software

Phase One has released an update to Capture One Pro with version 11, with the RAW conversion and image-editing software getting improvements to performance and an overhaul of the Local Adjustments tool, among other features.

The Local Adjustments tool is now referred to as Layers, and it has much more precise control over masking. All adjustment tools in Capture One Pro 11 are now compatible with Layers. New tools have been added to feather masks, as well, to refine the precision of a mask for difficult subjects like hair and to control layer opacity. A greater range of tools, like Color and Levels, are available in local layer adjustments, too.

Additionally, as part of the redesigned and improved workflow, COP 11 now can open large catalogs much more quickly and supports much larger size catalogs. A new option on import will hide duplicate files, a much-requested feature from creatives, and a LAB readout has been added to the Color Measurement tool. The program now has native support for 400-plus cameras.

Phase One Releases Capture One 11

Engineered for creative control

COPENHAGEN, Nov. 30, 2017 – Phase One, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end digital camera systems, today released Capture One 11, a major new version of the industry’s premier RAW conversion and image editing software. This release builds on Capture One’s unmatched color handling, precision-editing tools, seamless tethered support, and native support for more than 400 different camera models. Photographers will enjoy new, highly responsive tools, workflow enhancements and a finely tuned processing engine. Capture One 11 has been designed to deliver a significantly faster and smoother experience.

“We care deeply about what photographers need,” said James Johnson, software Product Manager, Phase One. “Capture One became known as ‘the professionals’ choice in imaging software,’ precisely because of our unrelenting focus on our customers’ needs. We have unique insight, gleaned from years of our own sensor and optics development. Applying that expertise to software makes for a really fantastic photographer experience.”

Layers have been significantly improved for faster, more flexible editing. All adjustment tools in Capture One are now compatible with Layers, making Capture One a truly “layer centric” application.  Furthermore, images can now be annotated in Capture One (handwritten notes and drawings can be added directly on to images) and included in exported PSD files as a separate layer for greater flexibility. Re-engineered tools help optimize color adjustments. Plus, more robust catalog performance improves the overall experience.



In response to customers’ needs, masking tools have been further developed, and new features and overall performance advances have been introduced. New tools have been added to refine and feather the mask after drawing, or adjust the opacity of a layer to control the impact of local adjustments. With more tools available locally and with increased performance in masking, Layers in Capture One are now more dynamic than ever.

— Layered Workflow

— Layer Opacity

— Feather Mask

— Refine Edge

— Grey Scale Mask


Annotations and graphics as Overlays can be added to images and exported in PSD files as separate layers. Crops can be respected or added as a Path when exporting to PSD files, permitting the full image to be used later for retouching. An individual watermark may be included as a separate layer in an exported PSD file to permit greater control during later editing.

— Annotations (Export as a layer when using PSD)

— Overlay in output (as a layer when using PSD)

— Export Crop to Path (when using PSD)

— Watermark as a Layer (when using PSD)


Capture One has been further optimized to increase overall performance. Improved color handling through re-engineered color tools helps ensure optimal layered color adjustments. Color readouts can now be viewed in LAB mode aiding customers who wish to measure image output to critical values. Improved performance in Catalogs makes for an overall better experience.

— Editing Speed

— Import Duplicate Checker

— Color Improvements

— LAB Readout

— Catalog improvements
