    If you 'open with' an image in PS from capture one then the same thing happens as if you opened the file directly with PS.

    Assuming you are talking about a raw file (are you?), Adobe Camera Raw will open and let you develop the raw. And of course the result will be different in PS as they are two different applications and you're settings (or defaults) are different and the raw interpretation as well.

    In C1, set the soft-proof to AdobeRGB, set a color readout on that patch to "show always", set the exposure and tones using the exposure and level tools, maybe HDR tool, then use the WB picker on that patch, re-adjust your set tools if needed  so that you have a decent image regarding tonality and colors within boundaries without too much clipping (highlights/shadow warnings). 

    Then, "EDIT with" Photoshop from C1, which creates a TIFF 16bit, AdobeRGB, if you choose these settings (which you should).

    If you are not working with raw files then avoid C1, there is no point in using it.

    Did you figure it out?

    Hello BeO,

    Yes, this helped a great deal (now I just need to figure out why I am getting low rgb values on the gray patch for each photo I take)

    Can you paste a screenshot of the histogram here, of such a photo? And paste a screenshot of the tools you use in C1 to adjust your raw files, e.g. exposure and levels?
