Hidden Features of Capture One Pro: Save Filters for Searching Metadata
Filters are an often over-looked feature in Capture One and they’re really very powerful for searching for images. You might already use them to find starred or colour tagged images but they can be set-up to search for any metadata that’s listed in the Metadata tool.

Hidden Features of Capture One Pro: Redeploy as a Fast Browser

And, in my opinion, it’s this design that makes Capture One Pro a little daunting for new users, as you’re immediately asked to make a choice between them before you can use it. However, in practice there is a (unofficial and therefore unsupported) ‘third’ way to use it, and that is as a fast browser. One of the downsides of RAW converters like this is that you have to import images through a “gate-keeper” (the import, or ‘importer’) app. Once files…
