When left to the default location, Capture One stores the Session folder and its sub-folders in the Pictures/My Pictures directory (Mac/Windows) on the local drive. When working tethered, the default destination folder for captured image files is the Capture sub-folder of the Session folder (which is no different when importing images from a memory card in a typical session). Using the Next Capture Location tool allows you to change the destination folder (i.e., storage location) for captured images at any time, even during a shoot.
Although there are no real restrictions as to where the destination folder can be located, to retain the organization and modularity of the Session, it is recommended that any new capture folders are created within the Session folder and ideally within the Capture sub-folder. When the destination folder is located outside of the Session folder, on an external drive, for example, that drive must be accessible or online to continue to work with images stored there. Image variants will not be available if the drive is not accessible.
- Go to the Next Capture Location tool.
- From the Destination fly-out menu, select Choose Folder.
- Navigate to the new location and select an existing folder or choose New Folder (optional) and name it. Then select Set as Capture Folder. Future captures will be stored in that folder.
- The Space Left field indicates the estimated number of captures available (based on the image file size of the last used tethered camera and the capacity of the drive where the chosen folder was selected or created).
