Compare to Original

Postby NNN636907457599142253 » Thu Apr 18, 2019 9:43 am

Hello everyone, I am a long-time lightroom user and at the moment I am evaluating Capture one to see if it suits my needs. At the moment I am quite happy with the performance but I am having trouble on how can I compare my edited image with the original one.
In Lightroom you could press `\` and View the image before any of your adjustments and then again `\` to view the image with your adjustments. Something like compare to the original.

The only way I found to do that in Capture One is by Resetting my adjustments (Cmd+R) and then Undo (Cmd+Z) last action or by hitting Alt + Reset all adjustments icon from the toolbar.

Is there any better way to do it? Like comparing it side by side or Before and After?

Thanks a lot for your time.

Hi,

You have two ways to do it:
1) You can option + click on the locked arrow in the left top corner (default) of the C1 window (reset adjustments on all selected variants), which temporarily reset the adjustments. This allows to view alternately the image before, and then after when you release the click.
2) You can create a new variant, which is the image before your adjustments, and display simultaneously the adjusted (after) and new variant (before, i.e. original) images on your screen.

Hello Robert,

Thank you very much for your reply.
I tend to like the 1st option you described.
Do you know if there is a way to assign a keyboard shortcut on Temporarily Remove Adjustments (option + locked arrow) to avoid using the mouse for that?

Thanks again for your help, I really appreciate it!

No, I don't know, but maybe you could try creating one using the edition of keyboard shortcuts ?

Edit : I doubt. The adjustments reset is indeed on the list, but not the "temporarily reset"....

The second option offers many more possibilities.

Hmm, I get now what you mean about variants.

- Create a variant and then click on both of the images, the edited and the variant to have them side-by-side.

Also a nice way to do it.
Thanks a lot guys! I really appreciate your help.

Yes, and you can compare many variants, for instance the original + 3 different developments.

As an alternative you can select the two variants, set the Viewer to single image mode and then arrow key from one to the other to simulate the "Show Original" approach. And of course your comparison can be between 2 variants. Or 3 variants = perhaps the original and 2 different edits for example by setting the 'original' with the variants either side of it and scrolling through the 'set' in one direction or the other. (Easier to to do than to describe in words. Experimentation encouraged.)
