Previous versions of Capture One's White Balance panel had the option to select from a number of built-in skin tone presets and to create custom presets. Although that tool’s built-in presets are no longer available, any custom presets that may have been created are migrated automatically to the new Normalize tool’s preset menu.
The process of selecting and applying migrated presets is the same as applying a User Preset. In general, you should only apply Skin Tone Presets to the same person, ideally selecting the same area and tonal region that was used to create it. For example, if the preset's pick or adjust was made in a highlight area on the forehead, it should be applied to the same or similar region.
- Select the image from the Browser that you want to apply the normalization correction to.
- Go to the Normalize tool and click on the Manage Presets menu icon in the title bar. The Manage Presets menu opens.
- Select the relevant skin tone preset from the drop-down list. The migrated preset is selected and both the color patch and values are updatedю The preset name will be displayed in the Normalize tool adjacent to the Pick field.
- Select the Apply Normalization eyedropper and click on the same area that was used to create the preset (e.g., the forehead, forearm, or leg, etc., taking note to avoid tonal variations between the original and the destination image, if possible).
- The adjustment is applied and the image is updated in the Viewer.
