Maybe it is not OK to post this thread here but I just wanted to say since I moved to Capture One a few years ago (LR/PS user before) 80% of my work is done in CO12.
I am a Belgian portrait/fashion photographer just back from Egypt hired for photographing the 32 Miss Belgium 2020 finalists and last week I started editing a total of 128 images for the Miss Belgium book being released in January for the final show. The quality CO delivers is outstanding. I especially love the Skin tone and Luminosity masks and accurate color selection! This makes editing of the RAW pictures much more easy and faster compared to other RAW software I have used/tried. Last year I photographed the Gary Numan concert at the Royal Albert hall in London and Bridgewater hall in Manchester. 90% of the pictures were done only using CO. Easily changing colors and luma ranges are a reason to edit in CO. Photoshop is however still needed for cloning, healing, liquify, frequency Separation (using mixer brush) and final sharpening of edges. The final touch, color grading of the psd is done in CO12.

I would like to thank the phase one team for developing and improving this software. However there are things I would like to see imroved. More than 16 layers (I rarely need it but when I need it, it is not possible). Faster loading of pictures when the list is huge in Capture folder. When I am culling through 2500 pictures from a concert you know what I mean. Healing/Cloning can be better.


To the whole phase One team. Keep up the good work! Anxious about CO20.

I totally agree with your points. Healing and cloning it's not on par with other software editing platforms. I wish we could provide more systematic feedback to the developers, maybe even influence the priority of certain tasks. I would also add:
    1. a dedicated slider for dehazing (a must for astro photography)
    2. a more effective blurring algorithm

Frequency Separation (using mixer brush)

is that my workflow you're referencing? =D

FS median + mixer = heaven for retouching
