The Zen of Capture One - What Works for You?

    Hi Delwood, I'm also a former Aperture user. Hard to give that one up; it had just enough high-end features to be incredibly useful as a photo editor, while also retaining a lot of useful consumer-oriented features (like the GPS module, and face detection).

    I was force off of Aperture because I upgraded cameras and there was no support there. Capture One is a superior photo editor but it has some lacking DAM functionality compared with Aperture, for my needs.

    My current workflow is to use Capture One as a book of "digital negatives." I import all of my RAW files into Capture One, culling images and sorting them, and doing edits. I then export the images at JPEG (more recently I've been exporting as TIFF and using Permute to convert to HEIC) and import them into Apple Photos, which retains the GPS functionality and face detection from Aperture. It also allows me to share images to Photos-based shared albums. My folder and album hierarchy are mirrored between the two (done manually). I can find images more easily in Photos and, if I need to re-process an image, I can then easily find it in Capture One as well.

    Regarding GPS tagging, one of my cameras can tag its own photos, and the other cannot. I used to tag untagged photos in Apple Photos (as those were usually all taken at home, and were easy to do). Now what I've been doing has been to use GeoTag (a free program) to tag photos after export from Capture One but before import to Photos. This is inconvenient, and is largely because GeoTag can't work with RAW files. I've been evaluating HoudahGeo as a (paid) alternative, which can add GPS data to RAW files. I could then simply copy the files to my computer, run the GPS data, and then import into Capture One. I think that would be the more ideal workflow... at least, until Capture One adds the functionality to modify GPS data (if they ever choose to).

    I have been using GeoTag as well with C1. While it does not modify RAW files is does work with them just fine. Once I have imported my images into C1 I use GeoTag to update the GPS metadata (which creates xmp sidecar files) then I get C1 to update its metadata from the RAW files again. This picks up the GPS information and updates the C1 database.

    That sounds like a superior workflow. Are you running GeoTag on the directory within Capture One's originals? I'll have to try again; as far as I recall, GeoTag wasn't willing to work with the RAW files from my cameras, but maybe there's an option I need to adjust?

    Not sure what you mean exactly by that phrase. I am using C1 to create a new session and import images from my card to the new session's "Capture" folder on my HD. When I am ready to geotag the images I then shut down C1 and start GeoTag and point to the "Capture" folder and select the .nef files.

    I'm don't remember having to tweak anything but I am not in front of my photo computer so I cannot check now.

    I can only speak as a hired photographer.

    My work is done only with sessions as they are much easier to access and "sync" on a network storage device compared to a cataloge.

    All my folders and session (and files) are named:

    YEAR-MONTH-DAY-JOB/CLIENT

    So when a client wars to have his/her images I just search for his/her name in the explorer/finder and within seconds I have them.

    It's not a perfect system but it's the most convenient for me.

    Great ideas. I’m using sessions and Houdah Geo to do the geotagging. I collect a folder of images for each camera. In HoudaGeo that’s helpful for making sure that the clocks line up.

    I ran into a problem doing renaming in Capture One. It would only do one file type. So I now use a Perl script to do them all.

    The session is great because I can ask it to reread a folder and incorporate changes from HoudaGeo.
