The Open With command allows previously processed images (i.e., PSD, TIFF or JPEG files) to be opened in an external application. This is useful, for example, when you want to return to an application and make additional adjustments to previously exchanged files. If you select a RAW-based variant, the external application will attempt to directly open the image, which may not be capable of converting a RAW file. When you want to exchange RAW files and apply any adjustments in Capture One, select the Edit With command instead.
- Select the image from the Capture One browser to be opened in the external application.
- Choose Image -> Open With from the main menu (or right-click and select Open With from the browser) and choose the desired application.
- Choose the external application from the drop-down menu. If the appropriate app is not shown in the list of programs available on your Mac/Windows computer, select Other… and navigate to your chosen application and select Open.
- The image will open in the nominated application.
- Make the appropriate changes or edits. If the image is a previously processed file and the Save command is available, the image is updated with the adjustments in the Capture One browser, otherwise, a Save As dialog will open.
- Choose the location to save the image to. When using a Session you can select one of the Session Folders as the location to save the image to and the image will be displayed in the Browser. In a Catalog, the image will have to be re-imported or synchronized if you selected the same location as the source image.
NOTE: Plugins are not supported in Capture One Express.

Do we have a shortcut for this operation ?
Can I configure a shortcut so that I say I can open image in RAWDigger and see the image and close it ?
If we don't have a shortcut then a feature request would help
Thank you for the comment.
We do not have a shortcut for this action, but we already have requests for that.
I will also add your comment about that as well.
Lily, there seems to be a bug, present in both 20 and 21. It constantly asks what I want to open a PSD file in. Despite clicking "always open with this" it never remembers. Windows 10. I do composites and I cannot batch open anymore.
Have you already tried creating a Windows file type association for PSD files and the application(s) you may wish to open them with?
Yes, it is associated with in Windows 10. I go to "default apps" and can see it is set to default. Furthermore, I can click PSD files in File explorer and it opens to photoshop. Because of this I believe it is C1 but I will try more in windows, I'm just put of ideas.
I am not the only one with this issue, SFA.
here you can see it is associated, SFA.
I am trying to open more than one file at a time into photo shop for real estate editing. Capture One 21 (Fuji) is only sending one of the multiple selected files I select via the "edit with" tab to PS. I realize there is no open as layers function at this time. That said, I tried the same with Affinity and have no issue with more than one file at a time being sent there for editing. Is there a toggle I am missing or do I have to go and individually open one file at a time to PS from Capture One's "edit with" function? Thank you....
This is driving me crazy... Capture One 21 (Sony Express) crashes when opening images in my external editor, Affinity Photo. This new behavior since 14.3
I've gone to Preferences and setting up plugins, and by choosing 'Other' from menu drop-down. I get the file (TIFF) builder window, and CO21 crashes when I attempt to 'Save' file.
Can you help me get back to standard behavior? Thanks
Thanks for sharing with us the issue you have faced.
I have converted your request to a support request.
The Support Team will get back to you via the ticket soon.
Would love a shortcut button for this.
There are no shortcuts in your article. But if you want you can use the shortcut for photo or image configuration.
And yes, you can visit Clipping Path Center (CPC) for any of your image editings.
