When shooting straight down, it is not possible to detect which orientation you intended for the images in most DSLR cameras. As most DSLR cameras do not have manual overrides, Capture One cannot tell the camera which orientation to use. Furthermore, the orientation settings are not automatically copied to a new capture because this would not be desirable in most shooting scenarios. Anyway, it is possible to set this manually.
- In the Next Capture Adjustments window, set the Copy from Clipboard option in the All Other field as shown in the image below.
- Shoot an image, make any adjustments such as rotating the image.
- Go to the Adjustments Clipboard and click Copy.
- Tick the Orientation checkbox in the Composition section.
5. Your next shot should rotate automatically when displayed.
NOTE: If you make any new adjustments to an image that you want to keep on future shots, you must re-copy the adjustments and tick the corresponding checkbox.
- Add the Copy and Apply button to your toolbar (View -> Customize Toolbar).
- Use the same workflow as above, however, click the Copy and Apply button and then click Copy in the pop-up window instead of clicking Copy in the Adjustments Clipboard.
The benefit of this method is that you don’t have to tick individual checkboxes each time you want to apply changes for another shot or a series of shots. The Copy and Apply button does not exclude any adjustments made to an image unlike the standard copy buttons. Keep in mind that any metadata items, rating, a color tag will be copied as well.
