You can add image adjustments when importing. Although it is limited to the automatic adjustments found in the main toolbar, you can also apply Styles and Presets which can be extensively customized for your particular workflow. For example, you can use this feature to apply keywords or IPTC metadata, such as copyright and rights usage terms, if those have been saved previously as a User Style or Preset.
When importing images that have been worked on previously in Capture One, the Include Existing Adjustments option should be selected so that any previously made adjustments and settings can be applied. It can be left permanently selected, just in case.
- In the Adjustments tool, checkmark the Auto Adjust option to apply on import the automatic adjustments selected from the Toolbar. Note that this option may slow down the import process.
- Presets and/or styles can also be applied to images during import. Select the relevant options from the Styles fly-out menu.
- Select the Include Existing Adjustments checkbox if you are importing files that have already been worked on in Capture One. This option imports and applies all adjustments and settings (i.e., ratings, keywords, copyright info., and any other metadata) associated with each image file.
- Selected adjustments will be applied on import.
Applying user presets or styles already during import is a great timesaver. It would be really perfect, when this adjustments would be applied to a new/separate layer, instead of to the background layer. So it would be possible to simply checkbox it on/off or change the opacity after the import during the following workflow when necessary.
