When outputting an image for the web or for printing, you can use Capture One to resize images, keeping the total pixel count unchanged while adjusting the resolution (i.e., pixels per inch) to alter the image dimensions. Alternatively, when resampling, you can specify both the resolution and image dimensions independently.
After cropping to the required aspect ratio, resizing is generally considered to deliver the best quality for printing. However, as resampling is carried out on the original data (and of the highest quality), it is suitable for any type of use. Capture One can resample images from 10-250%.
As Capture One tags the image with the resolution and the total number of pixels remains unchanged when resizing, it may not be necessary to alter the image dimensions (e.g., to allow a printer driver or third-party application to resample instead).
Like other process settings in Capture One, the combination of print dimensions and resolution (i.e., image size or document size) is saved as a component of a Process Recipe and the settings are applied on output.
