    Hi everyone, 
    Thank you for the suggestion - this is not something we are currently working on.

    This does not mean this is a bad suggestion or that it will never be adressed, but in an effort of transparency we want you to know that we are not currently allocating resources to solving this issue.

    We will revisit the status of this thread if and when it changes.

    Thanks Gustav and Maryna, I am here as well after watching Jamie Windsor video and hoping to have the calibration tool or something similar in the next version of C1.

    I switched back to Lightroom because all the presets I have ever used look much better in Lightroom. 

    Capture One loses out on a huge audience that can't switch because their presets don't convert over. 

    Same with LUTs. I can export my Lightroom preset as a LUT and it makes my videos look just like my photos. I can't do that with Capture one. 

    Hope they add this soon. Not paying for the next version of Capture One now because I don't use it as much, even though I love Capture One much more than Lightroom.

    ABSOLUTELY! This is my biggest concern over capture one and it makes me prefer Lightroom... defenetely hoping to see the color calibration tool on cap one 22. I'll wait another two months for it and if they don't make it I'll just stick to Lightroom. Also, the saturation tool works as vibrancy in the positive direction but it works as a common saturation tool in the negative direction. I need a vibrancy slider that works as vibrancy both ways as in Lightroom.

    It says Completed. So where I can find this feature in Capture One?

    I think they say completed when the suggestion has been put into the hands of the developers for consideration, in other words, your suggestion has been heard and passed on.

    From the Feature Requests forum landing page:

    This is the place to discuss feature requests. The label 'Completed' serves as a convenience to mark that the suggestion has been taken on board for further consideration.

    I am on the fence between LR and C1.

    The two areas that make me favour LR over C1 are the advanced AI masking and more importantly the calibration tool in LR. 

    Fingers crossed these two areas will be addressed with a future update soon especially as I miss the amazing sorting/cataloging features in C1 now that I decided to invest into LR.

    The color calibration tool in LR is also essential to my workflow. The new masking tools have also made it hard for me to want to switch to C1 fully.

    So if you prefer Lightroom, use Lightroom.

    Yes, André, I get that, and of course you can suggest such a feature.

    My comment was a response to Cody Cobb basically telling us that Lightroom is essential to his workflow.

    I don't understand this is already possible! Look at the color editor and the odly named Skin Tone tool which can be used to shift colors and pull colors together.

    Then you have the color balance tool. What else is needed?

    I cannot see anthing which Lightroom does better?

    @ David Bleeker

    The skin tone tool is so named because it was first of all designed for adjusting skin tones and in particular making them more uniform. Of course, you can use it for other purposes too, to work on the colour of anything - like making the blue of a sky more uniform, for example. 

    It does have its limitations, however. Whereas the "advanced" tab of the colour editor allows you to move a colour 30 degrees round the colour wheel, the skin tone tab only allows up to 5 degrees.

    I know, the 5 degrees is indeed a shame. And it indeed could be better.

    But peopple always say Lightroom is better because that is what they know, and that is what is covered 95% of the time by people on YouTube.

    Yes, I agree. Things like camera magazines always assume that everyone uses Lightroom and Photoshop - and because that is what they write about, readers then go and get Lightroom and Photoshop, so it is a self-perpetuating thing.

    So in my opinion Capture One is clearly a superior software compared to lightroom when considering the level of thoroughness that you can reach with your adjustments. Not to mention the library and export system that I think is simply amateurish in Lightroom.

    HOWEVER, the lack of a calibration tool still to this day is inexplicable. There is no tool as far as I'm aware that works in the same way i.e. targeting colours based on their pixel component rather than merely working on the resulting colour.

    Excuse me, how do you think people can switch to your software if they have to reinvent their workflow point-blank?

    Please help! I'd really like to use Capture One moving forward but the lack of a calibration tool is suggesting me otherwise.

    Not sure what Lightroom has for color calibaration but you can just use the X-rite calibration software to make a profile, works fine for me!

    One of the features that makes the pull towards Lightroom even stronger after the announcement of the new perpetual license policy.

    It's pretty obvious that a calibration tool like the one in Lightroom would be a great value.

    Another big +1 for this feature. I’m a capture one user because of how they render Fuji raw files. If Lightroom would have better detail rendering I would switch immediately. It’s so much easier for me to get the colors I want in Lightroom.
