Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 8.2 Software

Phase One just released Capture One Pro 8.2, an update of its image editing and Raw conversion software that adds several new tools and color grading options.

Capture One Pro 8.2’s new Color Balance Tool is designed to offer the most advanced color grading solutions of any Raw converter. The tool includes the new 3-Way Color Balance, which does not require knowledge of color blending or third party plug-ins to create accurately color graded images. Color tone changes can be made in the shadows, the highlights or the mid-tones, giving the user a quick and powerful way to create beautiful images, Phase One says.

Other new features include Dynamic Locations which lets the location of processed images -- or the location of imported images -- be dynamically modified, by using a new set of Tokens. Image files, for example, can now be sorted automatically based on a star rating, color tag, variant position and other user-specified criteria.

You can also maximize viewing on advanced single and dual monitor setups in Capture One Pro 8.2. To take advantage of newer, higher resolution 4k monitors, the maximum resolution of image previews has increased from 2880 to 5120 pixels. High quality previews are available immediately as images are added to a Capture One Catalog or Session, to facilitate fast browsing and scrolling through thumbnails.
