I have an image on which the colors look fine when I view it within Capture One 12. If I export the same image, even with no adjustments made, the colors change. Why does it happen? Is there any option to make the colors stay the same after export?
The image presented on the screen while using Capture One may have different colors compared to that after processing and exporting in case the ICC profile in the Process Recipe and Proof Profile do not match.
Capture One displays an image with the output profile applied from the selected process recipe in the Process Recipe tab in the Output Inspector. Capture One’s default setting is to render previews with the output profile applied directly. Nevertheless, Capture One can display another ICC color space profile chosen in View -> Proof Profile without altering the recipe itself.
To make sure that the image in Capture One looks the same as the processed and exported one, proceed with the following steps.
1. Select the image variant in the Browser.
2. In the Output tool tab, select the appropriate recipe in the Process Recipes panel.
3. In the Process Recipe panel below, go to the Basic tab and select or verify the output profile listed in the ICC Profile field.
4. Verify Capture One is rendering the image using the appropriate output profile. In the main menu, select View -> Proof Profile -> Output Recipe Profiles > Selected Recipe.
