Working with Offline Photos

Since their introduction in Capture One 7, catalogs have provided an effective solution for working with large sets of images with a relatively tiny data footprint and centralized file structure. This is done by caching the preview files within the catalog package, minimizing the need to access the source RAW files. When the original source files are not available, the previews are marked at the top with “Offline” and the thumbnails in the browser pane have a question mark icon.

In joining, you’ll learn about:

  • What are offline photos?
  • What are the benefits of offline photos?
  • What settings should I optimise in Capture One?

A thorough understanding of how the Catalog works in relation to preview files opens up new workflow options and increases the robustness of your Catalogs.
