Capture One allows you to import Styles (i.e., Custom Styles) that you have either created on another computer or that you have acquired from another source. Besides being able to choose from the growing number of Capture One Styles available to download for free and for purchase on the internet, this option is particularly useful when you want the same Style available on one or more of your computers, which saves time copying the settings between them. Styles are cross-platform compatible, so they can be shared between Mac and Windows machines.
Capture One supports the import of single Styles (with a .costyle extension) and multiple Styles arranged in folders as part of a Style Pack (with a .costylepack extension). If Styles are delivered as a Zip file, the package will have to be opened (i.e., unzipped) first before importing.
- Go to the Styles & Presets tool in the Adjustments tool tab and click on the Action menu, the (…) icon. The Action menu opens. Select Import Styles.
Alternatively, go to the main menu and select Adjustments menu -> Styles -> Import Styles.
- The system Downloads Folder in the Finder/Windows Explorer opens.
- Navigate to a single Style or Style Pack and press Open.
- The Style or Styles (where appropriate) are imported into the User Styles Folder available from the Styles and Presets tool in either the Adjustments tool tab or from the Adjustments tab in the main menu.
