Phase One Capture One Pro 8.2 Released

Phase One today released Capture One Pro 8.2 with more tools. Capture One Pro is renowned for its optimal raw file conversion and intuitive image editing for more productive workflows.

“Capture One Pro 8.2 marks the next step in Phase One’s continuous effort in delivering high quality tools for professional photographers,” said Jeppe Skjerning, Product Manager, Phase One. “The market needs are always evolving, and this release meets the increasing demand for creating beautiful images easier; delivering files faster and utilizing hardware better.”

A new Colour Balance Tool offers the most advanced color grading solutions of any RAW converter. With the new 3-Way Colour Balance, no knowledge of colour blending or third party plug-ins are required to create beautifully colour graded images. Colour tone changes can be made in the shadows, the highlights or the mid-tones, giving the user a quick and powerful way to create beautiful images.

Instead of manipulating RGB channels of Levels and Curves, the new Colour Balance Tool offers an equally powerful solution. Brightness values are better preserved in the shadows and highlights by using this method.

To take advantage of newer, higher resolution 4k monitors, the maximum resolution of image previews has increased from 2880 to 5120 pixels. High quality previews are available immediately as images are added to a Capture One Catalog or Session, to facilitate fast browsing and scrolling through thumbnails.
