Following the release of Capture One 20, the makers of the photo-editing software, Phase One, have used a live stream to demonstrate new features that will be coming to the program in a free update later this month. Business Development Manager David Grover and Product Manager Alexander Flemming show off the improved healing brush, the new clone brush, and the new before/after button.
With the current healing brush, you have to create a new “Heal Layer,” select your brush and pick a source point. The updated tool intelligently selects a source point every time it is used on a single heal layer, with no limit on the number of heal points you can have. The presenters show how the healing technology can adjust the luminosity of your source point to match the area you’re touching up. Working similarly to the updated heal brush, the new clone brush instead creates a “Clone Layer,” copying selected pixels from one area to another without the blending that happens with the heal brush.
Finally, the new before/after button creates a nifty split view with before on the left and after on the right. Users can edit in this view, work with different zoom levels, and use the view across multiple images at once.
Coming at the end of the month, the update is free for existing users of Capture One 20, including the Fujifilm-only and Sony-only versions. Watch the demo below.
