When collaborating with colleagues, packing RAW files as EIPs creates a need to locate and include additional files. It is important to enabling the Include Existing Adjustments option in the Adjustments panel when importing EIPs by using the Importer in a Session or Catalog. Otherwise, those adjustments will not be visible and you will have to re-import the files.
That is not the case when dragging and dropping a folder of EIP files into a Session. When you do that, Capture One automatically includes the existing adjustments when creating the previews. If the adjustments are not wanted, simply select a New Variant (Image -> New Variant) or use the shortcut F2/F7 (macOS/Windows).
- Open a Session or Catalog, and select File -> Importa Immagini... or click on the Importa icon in the main toolbar. The Importa Immagini dialog opens.
- From Importa Da, select the folder of EIP image files to import and then choose the destination folder, naming, and other options as appropriate.
- In the Regolazioni panel, enable Includi Regolazioni Esistenti with a check-mark.
- Select the images and click Importa o Importale Tutto to import EIPs (complete with adjustments).
To convert all Phase One digital files to EIP when importing or capturing:
- Choose Capture One -> Preferenze.
- Open the Imaggine tab.
- Checkmark Pack come EIP in importazione.
- Checkmark Pack come EIP durante l'acquisizione when capturing.
The image file is now integrated into the Enhanced Image Package. The .EIP is simply replacing the image files. The setting files will be removed from the relevant folders and will also be included in the package.
Exporting images as EIPs
- Select the intended images that will be shared as .EIP.
- In the main menu, choose File -> Esporta immagini -> Originali.
- Add any folder and file name information using the Posizione and Denominazione tools where necessary, and checkmark Esporta come EIP under the Opzioni palette. Click on Esporta Originale. The files are now automatically packed and the extensions will be renamed to .EIP.
NOTE: JPEG and TIFF files cannot be packed as EIP.
