Capture One has a range of preferences that allow you to alter how a particular feature responds. In some cases, certain features can only be accessed from the preferences window, so it makes sense to spend some time on getting more familiar with each tabbed page and specifying the preferences to suit your particular workflow. The settings affect all Catalogs and Sessions within Capture One.
- Go to Capture One -> Preferences (macOS) or Edit -> Preferences (Windows). The global Preferences window opens.
- The settings are arranged by using labeled tabs. Click on a specific tab to view and modify settings to suit your particular need.
- To enable the new settings, quit Capture One and restart it again. Restarting is not necessary when adopting such features as Calibrating an Eizo Monitor or changing the Color Wheels Layout.
- Each page can be returned to its default settings independently of the others. Click on the Defaults button on the relevant page, then quit Capture One and restart it.
Tabs in the Capture One Preferences window: General, Appearance, Image, Capture, Color, Exposure, Crop, Focus, Warning, Updates, Plugins.
