After saving a User Preset, you will find it listed in the Manage Presets drop-down menu of the Normalize tool. A normalization preset works slightly different to other presets in Capture One as it is not immediately applied upon selection. Instead, you must proceed with a normalization correction using the Apply Normalization eyedropper. Note that User Presets cannot be stacked. The menu does not show which preset is currently selected. However, it will be displayed in the Pick field once selected.
Note that User Presets saved using the earlier Skin Tone tool option of the White Balance tool in version 11.0 and earlier are migrated automatically to the new Normalize tool’s Manage Preset menu. That tool’s built-in presets are no longer available and, therefore, have not been migrated.
- Select the image in the Browser that you want to apply the normalization correction to.
- Go to the Normalize tool and click on the Manage Presets menu icon (three horizontal bars) in the title bar. The Manage Presets menu opens.
- Select the relevant User Preset from the drop-down list.
- The User Preset is selected as the chosen values and both the color patch and preset name is displayed in the Normalize panel in the Pick field.
- Select the Apply Normalization eyedropper and click on an image in the same area or an area with a similar tone that was used to create the preset, if possible.
- The adjustment is applied and the image is updated in the Viewer.
