How to apply Edit/Prefernce selections to all images

    Adjustment settings like sharpening and noise reduction you preset in the Preferences should apply automatically on new images. A new image is an image the program does not yet have made a work file for. In general, once opened in Capture One, the work file is created and default (preset) adjustments are set.

    Do you like other presets to apply, you have to copy them to your images like a new adjustment. Of course you do not have to do that for each image individually. You can apply a specific adjustment or a group of adjustments to a selection of images in one stroke.

    Hopefully this will get you started in the right direction. Please let us know if you need any gaps to be filled in.

    Thank you, Paul. As I understand it, the Preference selections should stick to the images for the next assignment, as they are loaded into the C1Pro program. I will copy a few of the existing RAW image files to a new folder and import them into C1 to see if that "fools" the system.

    You need to know how C1 3.x handles the adjustment files before you attempt to fool the program. It differed on MAC/PC as I understand it (only used PCs)...so your method would work on a Mac where the referenced adjustment files are maintained under the image folder, and in the current version of COne V6.....but will not work on the PC version of 3.x where the referenced adjustment files were kept in a central Preview folder. On a PC, you could simply relocate the Preview folder without moving existing files to build new adjustment files (one solution of many)...but otherwise it will utilize the last saved adjustments to those files, no matter where located) before building new previews/adjustment files from those files.

    Hope that makes sense

    John is correct, and you have to outsmart the program to be sure you start from scratch with a particular image. In addition to John's workaround, a description how I did this.
    I backed up the image(s). Next, I deleted the images from within CO3. This will also remove the preview and work file associated with it. Next, I restore the image file and CO3 will build new support files for it.

    ..as I said many ways to do this, and I like Paul E's method better than what I suggested...thanks, Paul.
