When sensor dust occurs, it is typically seen in the same location on all images from the same camera, particularly during the same session. Once all of the selections have been made and the dust removed from one image, you can apply the adjustments to all the images in the session. The same procedure can be used for spot removal, with some caution, as the spots must be located in the same position in each image.
In Capture One, there is more than one method you can use. The quickest is when applying adjustments to multiple images (the Edit Selected Variants option is already enabled) by using the local Copy and Apply command. If you have not decided on the image or images to apply the adjustments to (i.e., they are not already selected or they are, but the Edit Selected Variants option is not yet enabled), then a combination of local and global copy and apply commands must be used.
- Select one image from the Browser and make the selections using the Dust removal option.
- Click on the Copy and Apply button (double-headed arrow icon) in the title bar. The tool's Adjustments Clipboard dialog window opens.
- Add a check-mark to the Dust option and choose one of the options:
- Copy - choose this to copy to the clipboard when you haven’t yet selected the image or images you want to apply the adjustments to (i.e., if the Edit Selected Variants option is not already enabled). The adjustments are copied to the clipboard (this includes both the local clipboard and global adjustments clipboard).
- Apply - to copy and apply to one or more images if the Edit Selected Variants option is already enabled. The adjustments are copied to the selected images.
- If you selected Copy in step 3, select the image or images (when applying to multiple images, enable the Edit Selected Variants option) and press the Apply button in the main toolbar (downward slanting arrow icon) or the Apply button in the Adjustments Clipboard.
- The adjustments are applied to the selected image or images.
- Always check images when automatically removing sensor dust, particularly when removing spots.
