Wishlist for C1 v7

Postby Thomas Geist » Thu Jun 21, 2012 3:06 pm

I am member of the DWF (Digital Wedding Forum), where there's a good number of C1 users, many of us having arrived at C1 after using Lightroom or returning from a detour there.

I don't know how far the next full version upgrade of C1 is still away, but we wanted to contribute some ideas and wishes and I would like to invite everybody here to participate and add to the list. That way Phase One know what we are looking for.

Here is what we came up with so far:

  • Crop tool: grips not only on corners but also on edge centers
  • The undo list needs some kind of threshold when faders are manipulated with the mouse's scroll wheel. Only record start & endpoint, not tons of points in-between (renders undo useless and uses up undo buffer quickly)
  • Keep top level points in Adjustment Clipboard collapsed (they re-open when new settings are stored). Often some long lists like Metadata or Lens Correction might not be used but they still can cause lots of scrolling down.
  • Match exposures of several images based on shutter speed, aperture and ISO. If the source image is for instance 1/250 s, f/4, ISO 200, set Exposure for the next image to +1 EV if it has 1/500 s, f/4, ISO 200
  • High Dynamic Range and WB as Local Adjustments
  • Graduated Local Adjustment
  • Show camera's serial # in EXIF and keep during export to JPEG or TIFF
  • Range in Color Editor way to small (especially Lightness)
  • More parameters for Vignetting (at least feather)
  • Provide a flat list for Presets so that no navigation through menu hierarchies is necessary.
  • Keyboard shortcuts for Presets.
  • Ability so select more than one folder to be displayed and worked on.
  • Develop: give choice to skip, overwrite or use unique name
  • the ability to reset a sliders value to 0 by double clicking the slider name, as with Lightroom
  • allow working in one color space (like camera input RGB) but measuring in a output space (like CMYK) without turning on visual proofing. This used to work in versions prior to 6, I'd like them to change it back.
  • out of gamut previews for proof space (like PS)
  • sort images by camera serial number
  • sort images by type / show or hide by type
  • easier to use crop settings interface. It's truly confusing now
  • global tweaks to auto adjustment (warmer, colder, sharper, etc...) or bias (for skin, landscapes, etc...)
  • previous button like in LR
  • also a true history state panel
  • process Mraw files from the 5dIII

I would love to see the selection ability in the adjustment layers palette go beyond just a round brush. Also more options for correction within the palette like the ones in the Quick as an example.

I would simply add:
- more Applescript commands, please!

A dream.
I would add: Options for decluttering and turn off some instant previews. For the people that only have 8-core processors.

Better lens correction with either lens profiles for the most common lenses or at least an easy way to create them. Especially stuff beyond normal distortion. I am thinking about the wave like (mustache) distortion on the Zeiss wide angle lenses. Images from those lenses are the only reason I actually use lightroom at all.

Bigger brush size for dust removal, plus source selection, so I can control more where the source info comes from and therefore also remove things without going through photoshop.

Split toning for color images too, not only black and white.

Some output border creation system. Would be nice to automatically create some borders around the output image (based on output recipe).

And perhaps graduate local adjustments, makes it easier for skies, but this is in the list anyway.

It would be great to be able to move a crop and overlay on an image at the same time

I shoot table top to fit small boxes on flyer pages. The overlay function would be useful to me if I could reduce my image to fit the boxes.

Hightlight Shadow adjustments

Postby Rick142 » Thu Jun 28, 2012 11:50 pm

Does anyone else feel the Highlight Shadow adjustments could work a lot better. When I use the highlight slider, I feel it darkens the entire image way too much rather than limiting the effects to mainly highlights. Same in reverse with the shadow slider. It would be nice to have a control similar to Tonal Width on PS.

Hmmmmm.... I'd love to see:

* live view triggering from C1
* battery monitoring for DF
* an iPad server that can keep up
* a Quick way to preview a CF card without opening Photo Macanic
* totally remove the "Yep C1 crashed" when it does at the moment the client glances up
* a quick way to Skype to distant clients

That's a start.
What the heck is Film & why does that man have an accordion with 'em ??!

Irfanview or Mac equivalent..!

C1Pro has always been awful w/ previewing CF cards. I don't know why Photo Mechanic can be so fast and C1Pro - a much more robust program - is so slow with this?
