Capture One - Applying Corrections and Data on Import

There are a variety of adjustments that you can apply to your images when you import them into Capture One Pro. These could be as simple as adding a contrast boost for studio images captured under flat light, or as fun as converting color images to black and white.

In addition to the visual adjustments you can make while the photos are importing into your catalog, you can add metadata as well, such as your copyright, contact info, and descriptions. I walk you through the steps in this video.

Keep in mind that any adjustments that you apply on import can be further tweaked, or removed, while editing in Capture One Pro. C1 is totally non-destructive. What is nice about this technique is that you can save yourself post processing time on images that have been captured under similar lighting conditions.
