How painful is the switch from LR to Capture One?

So if you send it to Photoshop anyway. Why switch from LR? You are still paying the same monthly price?

Capture One and LR are pretty much the same with some cosmetic differences?

I use CS6, so no monthly payment for me.

C1 is more advanced in may ways then Lr. It is, however, more difficult to learn.

Yeah the variants took a bit of getting used to. Scatterbrained said structure that I assume is the sharpening between capture and export. I called it detail. I found clarity in there. I worked it and then worked LR to match. LR you can do it in the detail tab because for export you get 3 choices. For what it is worth I got these. i did not touch the colour with either and my LR defaults were applied. I did like Capture quite a bit.

For what it is worth. First one is Capture, second is LR.


At least the color rendition is quite similar. I have just started playing with DxO vs. LR and find DxO is pretty different 'right out of the box'. I will continue playing with it, to see just what needs tweaking in DxO to look more similar to LR (with Vibrance and Saturation being the only things adjusted in LR for the test!)

LR was set to Camera Standard and some of why personal tweaks that auto apply. Not big changes. I like it in between the red skin tones of DPP and yellows of Adobe. Capture was there right away.

I downloaded the free trial again but have not installed it yet. We have to step out for a while.

You got me curios about this. Thanks a lot :-) I was there but only adjusted the Clarity. So I will hunt for the video that explains this however if you like you could help me with it. What does it do when I move it to the left or right?

I made a sample of comparison images. If you push structure and pull clarity, you can even pull off a subtle Orton effect right in C1.

^^ Been using C1 for a few months now, and didnt even try those tricks, very cool.

to answer TS, learning curve is very steep, transition is very difficult, but hell it's totally worth it IMO. I just feel so much better about color control on any subject.

the adjustment layers are so much better organized, 100% zooming is a million times faster to check focus, and the customization factor is very high. Such a good raw editor that I dont feel the need to revisit LR...... ever.

Just have to consider that the program is very complex, and you have to set it up the way you do things. Treat it as something entirely different, and you'll be better off. If I had the same mentality going into the Sony world, I probably would have switched much sooner. There's a method to the madness.

The loupe tool alone is worth its weight in bitcoin.

Thanks for the work you did. I was not sure if it would be that noticeable. Like you said it should be part of the sharpening tool kit.
