The Library tool tab is a filtered file explorer that displays supported files. It allows access to images within Albums, Smart Albums, and Favorites and to any image collections stored in folders on a computer or networked resource.
The Library tool tab is where all file navigation and organization takes place. Navigate via the hierarchical tree-view to a folder that contains the image files you wish to edit. Thumbnails of the images within your selected folder will be created and displayed in the Image Browser. You can also watch videos supported by your particular OS.
The Library tool also enables access to images within Catalogs, Folders, Session Folders, Session Albums, and Session Favorites. Within a session, the Library tool features an Output Folder, a Selects Folder, a Capture Folder, a Trash Folder, and enables users to browse between the recently used sessions.
The Library tool will feature fixed menus and albums and a Folders tool when a catalog is used.
Capture One applies non-destructive editing because any image adjustments will not affect the actual RAW file – only the Capture One settings file will be changed. Create a catalog or session to help organize your workflow.
