A thumbnail is a smaller version of the original image located in the Browser section.
Collapse or expand a Variant group if you have a number of variants for a certain image. Click on the small icon in the top left corner of a thumbnail. Find out more about Variant Groups.
Adjust and set the thumbnail size by dragging the zoom slider located in the top-right corner of the Browser window or by selecting View -> Browser Zoom from the main menu. Please note that the zoom slider is not present when using the Filmstrip mode.
An icon in the bottom-right corner will appear as soon as any image adjustments are applied. All the adjustments are listed within the Adjustments Clipboard.
A question mark icon appears when an image is offline. Image files that are located inside a Catalog and files that are referenced in their current location can be browsed offline.
View Only icon
An eye icon means that the file has a View Only permission status. This means users have the right to view the image but are unable to make any modification.
That often happens when you are running other than the Pro product variant of Capture One. For instance, if you are running Capture One for Fujifilm, it would not be possible to edit files from other non-Fujiiflm cameras and DNG files. Meanwhile, you can still work with other supported file formats such as JPG/TIFF/PSD/PNG.
An orange cog icon will appear in a thumbnail while the file is being processed. The icon will turn white once the processing is complete.
This icon also signifies that the file has a 'Variant Process History' that the user can access by selecting Image -> Process History.
Appearance Warning icon
An exclamation mark signifies that there may be a problem with the appearance of an image. This can be caused when an image is rendered using settings from a later version of Capture One.
Read Only icon
A crossed over pencil will appear in the bottom-right corner of an image if a file is unsupported or if you don’t have the access rights to edit a file. You might see this read-only icon if you try to edit image files located on a camera or an external disk that is not connected.
NOTE: JPEG files will have a read-only icon if the Enable JPEG Editing option is unchecked in the Preferences window. The same goes for TIFF and PNG files editing.
Collapse or expand a Variant group if you have a number of variants for a certain image. Click on the small icon in the top-left corner of a thumbnail. The number in the upper-right corner indicates the variant's position in the variant group. Find out more about Variant Groups.
