Does the “before” view only show the pre-edited version of the photo, or can you set it to amy stage of your editing?

David Grover

Hi Daniel,

It’s only the unedited state.

David Grover

Hi Alberto,

You need to first update Capture One to the latest release.

Hi david , Which version have the before and after view tools ?

Hello Vincent, before and after view tool is only available in the latest release


I have a Capture One (Sony) and after running my updates I still don’t have the Before / After option – can you help me install the update?

Many thanks,


David Grover

Hi Hugh,

Go to Window>Workspace and reset it to default.

Tryed to reinstall the update but not any change still not any “before and after” button.


David Grover

Hi Sven,

Are you sure you have the update installed? Otherwise check in Edit>Edit Keyboard Shortcuts and check what shortcut is assigned. You can also Go to the Window menu and reset the workspace to default.

Just updated to 20.0.4 on Windows 10 Pro, likewise no sign of Before/After feature. No response to ‘Y’, search for “before” in Keyboard Shortcuts shows no results, resetting workspace to default did not help either. Appreciate your help,

Hello, 20.0.4 is the previous release (13.1). Login to find the latest release

The before and after function needs the ability to rotate the splitting plane slider by 360 degrees by rotating the splitting plane axis., rather than limiting it to the left and right perpendicular axis. Even the baby step of a horizontal choice would be helpful while your great programmers are having fun with this challenge. You’re almost there. Thanks in advance!

The tool doesn’t fully work as expected. I’ve the button but there is no way of having the vertical sliding line, so I can just switch between before and after for the whole image.
I’ve Capture One Express for Fujifilm, build (e36fffc), with all settings reset to default and installed on Windows 10 Pro, version 1903, build 18362.836.

In Capture One Express versions the before\after view is only the full view, not the slider.

I’m using the full version of Capture One Pro 13.1. If you click and hold on the Before/After icon there is a dropdown menu that allows you to select either Full View or Split View Slider. If Full View is selected then all you have to do is click on the Before/After icon to toggle between views. If you don’t see the Before/After icon it could be that you are in a custom workspace, but you can right-click or Control-click (Mac) on the toolbar panel and add the Before/After tool icon to your custom workspace. Drag and Drop – easy.

Hi guys and mystified…have the latest version 13.1.0 and still don’t have the Before & After option/ button…is there something I am missing…? ggb
