Capture One 21 was officially launched last month, and now it got an upgrade for all of you using some of the latest cameras. With version 14.0.2, Capture One 21 now supports new cameras such as Nikon Z7 II and Z6 II, Canon 850D, and more.
Darktable has just released its 3.4.0 version. As always, it’s completely free and available for Windows, iOS, and Linux. The open-source alternative to Lightroom has been more and more popular among photographers, and the new version brings a bunch of improvements. Some of them are improved tethering and live histogram, as well as color calibration. So let’s dive in and see what you get when you install Darktable 3.4.0.
Capture One 21 has been officially launched today, bringing with it some workflow speed improvements and some much anticipated new features and enhancements. For a start, Capture One finally has a Dehaze tool. It also now supports HEIC files from Apple devices, as well as ProStandard camera profiles to help create more true-to-life colour.
When it comes to workflow, a new Speed Edit function lets you make rapid edits to either a single image or to multiple images simultaneously for batch editing. Optimised and more efficient asset management lets you more quickly sift through your files, and an improved importer speeds up bringing those files into Capture One in the first place.
As photographers start to explore alternatives to Adobe’s suite of applications, Capture One is a piece of software that’s often recommended as an alternative to Lightroom. While it may be arguably superior in certain aspects, and very similar in others, the workflow is a little different to Lightroom. So, it can take a while for new users to get used to it.
In this video, Michael Comeau at On Portraits walks us through his 20 top tips for beginners to Capture One to help newcomers get to grips with the software quickly and speed up their overall workflow.
ON1 Software has announced ON1 Photo RAW 2020, new and improved editing software aiming to be your “all-in-one photo workflow solution.” It looks like AI-based features are becoming “a must” in photo editing software, and ON1 Photo Raw isn’t lagging behind. The latest version comes with some AI-based tools, but also plenty of other improvements over the previous one, so let’s dive in and see what’s new.
Lightroom is still considered to be the leading software out there for digital asset management and raw processing. But it’s not the only one. There’s Capture One, Luminar, Exposure X4, and a host of others. But there’s one that seems to always be improving in popularity and functionality, and that’s Darktable.
Darktable is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, and it’s completely free. This video from Rico Richardson, coming via Anthony Morganti, is an overview of the basics of this pretty powerful RAW processor, and how to go about getting started with it for processing your images.
ON1 Software has today announced ON1 Photo RAW 2019 with an “all-new photo editing experience”. They say it features a new streamlined more elegant workflow with new features and software tech. It finally has a non-destructive workflow for layers, focus stacking, and sees some digital asset management updates.
To use their own words, “Hell froze over”. Yes, that’s right, the open source raw processor Darktable has finally been ported over to Windows. And they intend to support it fully in the future. There are still a few features missing, like lack of printing support, and you need special drivers for tethering, but it’s here and it’s usable.
ON1 is a name that seems to be practically a household name these days, and ON1 Photo has become an essential tool in the post processing workflow to many photographers, but one thing it’s lacked is a quality RAW processor.
Now that’s set to change with ON1 Photo RAW, which they’re describing as “the first all-new RAW processor and non-destructive photo editor to be released in more than a decade”. So, if you’re sick of the current options and want something new and fresh, here you go!
