C1P marks such small pictures as read-only and they cannot be edited. Obviously, such small things must be garbage and not worthy of being touched by such a high-class program as C1P. OK, fair enough.

You're right in that you normally would have no interest in editing such small images. But did you read my original post? I'm collecting images from a variety of sources for a slide show during a remembrance celebration for a good friend that died last year. Some of those images are technically inferior to anything we have now, but they are simply priceless for their emotional value. And many just need a few small adjustments, mainly white balance (auto-white balance has come a long way!).
But that main goal was to rate the many images I got (the slide show must be worth looking at). C1 doesn't allow me. Why on earth would a program decide that I have no right to rate an image (or a video, for that matter), even a small one. I find that very presumptuous.
Also note that it is technically possible to rate and color tag video's and such small images: C1 does it on import if you select a style that sets ratings and tags. So what's the excuse?
For posterity (learned another nice word, thanks!), take note that this issue was observed with Capture One Pro, build 220.127.116.11 for macOS.
P.S. Brian, this has nothing to do with file permissions, as John has already stated. Some of the images are from the early days of digital camera's and are 640x480.
P.S. Grant, you're right, maybe I should have posted this in the v9 mac group. But AFAIK, the small-image-restriction is the same on Windows, so I didn't want to post it in a mac-only group.
