question about Red eye Reduction ?

Well sorry to raise an old post from CaptureOnev8, but is there any chance this red-eye issue will get addressed in Capture One?

I am editing hundreds of family photos and red-eye is definitely an issue. And YES I shoot RAW and YES I use off-camera flash so don't tell me how to do it properly. I am dealing with 2 decades of photos.

It doesn't help when you say that it is not a problem for Professional photographers. If I was pirating your software, sure you could say, she doesn't matter. But I pay the same for all my Capture One licenses as those who think I am a complaining lunatic.

The recommended manual layer editing is a crock of #$%@
Photos with multiple red-eyes, esp brown eyes with red tones, requires multiple layers and multiple masks, when one button click could fix it. And round tripping to Photoshop to fix red-eye is embarrassing PhaseOne, wasting my time, wasting my resources.

I'm going to be editing these for a long time, and I am sure that many other Photographers will get the job of editing their families photos as well. Fobbing us off when we choose to use Capture One instead of Lightroom, that's shitting where you eat. Such a small thing to be on your high-horse. It's like the restaurant chef who won't cook steaks any way other than rare because they know best.

That would be nice. I recommend you open a support case to ask for that as a feature. Support requests is apparently they way Phase One tracks such requests.

For such a task why not just but a low cost tool that has the function? There may be some free tools around. Some are on line tools. You could get the family to do it themselves!

If you get one that claims to be able to spot Red Eye by itself it would save even more time for you on most photos.

It's not an "issue". Capture One simply doesn't do red-eye reduction because it's not designed to.

Use the right tool for the job - it's not a hard concept to grasp.

How's the view from up there on yours?
