With the clone variant option, it is easy to create multiple copies of one image with different adjustments applied to make a variant group. Capture One allows the associated adjustments and settings of that group to be applied to other individual images to create cloned groups.
For example, if you have created a variant group consisting of the original image variant along with a total of six clones, four depicting incremental changes and including a couple of B&W (mono) options, the adjustments of all six cloned variants can be copied in turn to create another variant group from the next capture.
- Select and copy the adjustments starting with the first adjusted variant in the group, then select Adjustments -> Copy Adjustments in the main menu or click on the Copy Adjustments button (upwards slanting icon in the toolbar).
- Make a new selection and select the images in the browser that you want to apply the adjustments to (when returning from Step 6, select the same images. Note there is no need to select the same position in the group).
- Make sure that the Image -> Edit All Selected Variants option is enabled (also visible as a button/icon in the toolbar).
- In the menu, select Image -> New Variant or press F2/F7 (Mac/Windows). This will create a new variant for each of the images you have selected.
- Select Adjustments -> Apply Adjustments or click on the Apply Adjustments button (downwards slanting arrow icon in the toolbar) to apply the adjustments to the selections.
- Return to Step 1 and repeat until all variants in the variant group have been copied.
