Capture One 12 introduces the concept of Plugins which can greatly expand the possibilities to edit your images. Plugins come in two main flavors: Plugins will enable you to publish images directly an online photo gallery solution or to social media, plugins that will let you edit or open images with specialized image adjustments, like the Helicon Focus plugin.
The Modifica con and Apri con commands have been made plugin-aware in Capture One 12, which means that you activate an installed edit-based plugin simply by selecting Immagine -> Modifica con -> Plugin or Immagine -> Apri con -> Plugin.
You will now be presented with a number of adjustment options that are specific to the installed plugin. Please visit the plugin vendor’s website for instructions on how to use these settings.
Please see the section Process RAW files and export to Helicon Focus here to learn how to use the Helicon Focus plugin.
Note that you do not need to use any plugins to edit the image in an external application, you can still just select Immagine -> Modifica con -> Photoshop to edit an image in Photoshop. You will then only use Capture One’s Basic, Adjustments, and Metadata settings to convert the file(s).
