How do I import images from my camera to Capture One on macOS?
The Default location for Session folders of RAW files is:
~User Account / Pictures/ Your Session Folders
Three default subfolders are created in progress:
- Capture Folder
- Process Folder
- Trash Folder
In the Organize tool, create a New Session using the + or the pulldown option.
Add RAW image files with one of the methods mentioned below.
Method 1. Connect a card reader to your computer and insert your memory card in it. When you do this, a New Media Detected (PRO Only) window will automatically open. You can rename your images as they are imported by ticking the Rename captures checkbox and typing the name you want to use.
NOTE: If you choose the Not to rename option, images retain the names generated by the camera. To change the names of the images, a Batch Rename function can be used in further.
Click Import and images will download into the Session folder. Thumbnails and previews will be generated as well.
Method 2. Another way to import images is to do that manually, using the Finder icon which is located at the bottom of the screen as shown in the image below.
By clicking on the Show selected in Finder icon, a window will display all the Session folders. Open the Captures subfolder. Open the mounted CF card reader drive, select and move image files into the Captures folder of the Session. Once images are in the Captures folder, thumbnails and previews will be created.
Images dragged/copied into the Captures folder manually will not be renamed.
NOTE: Automatic import can be turned On or Off by navigating to Preferences -> Capture Naming Preferences and marking the Bring up import option when a Compact Flash card is inserted.
