Capture One’s Basic settings tab is used to set an image resolution when processing to JPEG, TIFF, PNG, and PSD. The default setting is 300 ppi (px/in).
The Scale option beneath is used either to resize or resample. Capture One will only resize when the Scale option is set to Fixed (100 %). Resizing uses the native pixel count, adjusting the dimensions according to the specified resolution.
In general, this option (300 ppi, Fixed 100%) should be adopted unless a certain resolution and specific dimensions are required.
- Highlight the recipe (or, preferably, create a new dedicated recipe) to edit from the list in the Process Recipes dialog.
- Go to Resolution under the Basic tab in the Process Recipe tool and enter the required resolution (e.g., 300 px/in).
- Set the Scale fly-out menu to Fixed 100%. When any setting other than Fixed (100%) is selected from the Scale fly-out menu, Capture One will resample the image based on the specified resolution and image dimensions.
- In the Process Summary dialog, verify the maximum dimensions for the selected resolution in the Size field (e.g., 18.72 x 12.8 in (5616 x 3744 px).
- As an option to increase or decrease the dimensions, return to Step 2 and enter a lower or higher resolution respectively. Verify the values again in the Size field located in the Process Summary (click inside the dialog to update the value).
- After verifying, click the Process button in the Process Recipes dialog to output the selected images.
