What can the new version do?
In my opinion, Speed Edit is the central new feature of Capture One Pro 21. With a combination of keyboard and mouse you can reach the most important editing functions quickly and easily.
Pressing and holding the “Q” key and simultaneous scrolling up and down with the mouse or touchpad changes the exposure, for example.
This is a great new feature! Especially if you want to edit large amounts of images in a short time.
I have been using speed edit almost every day. And I must say – its hard to go back. This features is a huge time saver when it comes to processing raw files. Especially when you’re doing it in front of a waiting client.
And: it looks quite professional too :)
Removing haze will especially delight photographers switching from Lightroom to Capture One. Personally, I haven’t missed this feature so far, but still welcome it because the more versatile the tools, the better.
HEIF stands for H igh E fficiency I mage F ormat. This image format is very often used by current smartphones. This means that you can now open and edit the HEIF images that you take with your smartphone on the go in Capture One. Not everyone needs it, but I missed it for a long time!

But a lot has happened in other respects too.
I call it product maintenance.
