Black and white negatives scanned in grayscale are not immediately editable in Capture One. Is it possible to change that?
1. Before importing images in Capture One, make sure that those are of the supported file format.
What file formats are suitable for import?
2. Note that TIF/JPG/PSD/PNG files that are not in RGB color space cannot be adjusted in Capture One and will be read-only.
3. Make sure that the color profile is assigned to an image before importing it into Capture One. On Mac, open an image in the default application Preview and select Tools -> Assign Profile from the main menu and make sure that RGB is selected.
Crisscrossing levels might help to work with negatives, or is there another suggestion?
Will support for grayscale every be added? I love capture one, particularly the performance. But when I'm scanning medium format B&W negs at 60mpx, converting them all to RGB costs a bunch of disk space. It would be great to see some form of grayscale support in Capture One - even if it's just an auto conversion in memory (etc) when a grey image is loaded.
If you work on a Mac:
1 Scan your pictures in Grey levels
2 Open the scanned pics in Preview => File + Export... I guess it reads so (my soft is a version French, sorry)
3 Choose for exporting: HEIC format (move slider to "Maximum quality" beforehand)
4. Import your picture in C1. Then, you're able to adjust it.
Indeed the HEIC format allows for adjusting; not the assigned RGB profile.
