We Hear You

On Thursday, July 22, Capture One launched a new update (14.3.0) for Capture One 21. Designed to increase functionality and reduce complexity across the varied workflows, the update aimed to meet the evolving needs of the Capture One community – a community of professionals both rich and diverse in their needs. The last week has revealed to us that not all those needs were fulfilled. While striving to create the most cutting-edge tools for our community, some of the long-established processes and tools our users rely upon were unfortunately lost in this recent update. This was never our intention. As we continue to listen to our community’s feedback, we hope that this will guide us in our future endeavors to deliver the best solutions to fulfil the needs of loyal customers. We hope that this feedback can evolve into a positive conversation – one that will allow us to better understand how to meet the multiple needs of our community – present and future. We are profoundly grateful for the pivotal role that professional photographers …

CEO interview: The power and potential of M1

In an interview with PetaPixel, Capture One CEO Rafael Orta reveals why the team re-architected Capture One to run more powerfully than ever on Apple Silicon – and what it means for the future of editing. While Apple computers powered by M1 can run non-native applications through Rosetta, the hardware’s full potential is only seen with applications that have been built specifically for it. Capture One is set to finally make the transition and its CEO explains what the process was like and what was involved. In an exclusive interview with PetaPixel, Capture One’s CEO Rafael Orta reveals that the company is very close to releasing a native version of its popular photo editing application for Apple M1 computers, but doing so was not easy. “For us, it was quite a big task,” Orta says. “We used the opportunity to re-architect the way the entire application works and looked at how we could optimize based on the new hardware. As soon as the M1 got announced last year we got to work importing the code …

An Open Letter from Our New CEO: Photography Brings Beauty and Joy into Our Lives

When I first joined Capture One back in December of 2020, I did some snooping on social media and was blown away by the experience and talent connected with Capture One. I’d encourage you each to do the same: search #captureone in Instagram, and you will quickly be transported to a world rich in color and creativity. Whether it’s photography of nature, fashion, sports, or the odd selfie, it’s clear to me that #captureone is a vibrant, diverse, and global community of passionate photographers.  We’re inspired by the photos you create, and humbled to support you from our base in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Their ceaseless drive and inspiring creative vision push us to set our gaze ever higher and strive towards more ambitious goals. In listening …
