With the Photographer’s Guide to Capture One 11 eBook, you will become an expert of Capture One, speeding up your workflow and getting the very best out of your raw images.
This eBook will guide you through the whole process of getting images into Capture One, organizing them, making image adjustments and finally exporting the shots. All topics are divided into logical chapters, making it easy to go from zero to hero.
Photographer’s Guide to Capture One 11 is meant for anybody that is new to Capture One Pro as well as immediate users that want to expand their knowledge of certain tools or features. Some basic knowledge of image editing from other programs is highly recommended, making this the perfect book if you are coming from Adobe Lightroom or other raw converters.
Photographer’s Guide to Capture One 11 caters to both professional photographers as well as advanced enthusiasts. There has been a strong emphasis on providing a large number of screenshots to turbo-charge the learning process, and a great deal of effort has been put into explaining features and terminology specific to Capture One Pro, so that all new users will feel right at home. As an example, a whole chapter is devoted to explaining the concept of Tokens and giving you tips on how to take advantage of specific Tokens based on your workflow.

Image editing is highly dependent on your visual preferences and the image at hand, so Photographer’s Guide to Capture One 11 is not a series of constrained step-by-step guides based on questions like “How do I saturate a blue sky?”. The eBook will, however, teach you how to select any color – including a blue sky – in Capture One, and enhance both colors and light balance of the selected blue color range.
The goal is to teach you the vast possibilities of the tools in Capture One, so you will be able to pick the right tool for the job. There are for example several ways to adjust contrast and light balance in Capture One Pro, and each tool has its place in the photographer’s toolbox.
Before you buy the eBook, it is highly recommended that you check out this free sample chapter on the Black & White tool. It will get you a good impression of the content level and the writing style. The same sample chapter is available as a pdf file here.

When you have clicked View product in your email to get access to the eBook, make sure that you click on Download (instead of Read) to save the eBook on your iOS device/computer. The Gumroad e-reader doesn’t work that well with such a huge book.
This eBook is published in the fixed layout format which means that you can’t change to size of the font to let the text reflow. This is by design because it was important for me to make sure that the text and illustrations are kept together. A reflowable text format could easily break these connections for technical reasons (the epub format is basically html code).
The eBook is made with Adobe InDesign 2018 and exported with its ePub feature. The size of illustrations and text has been optimized for viewing on an iPad. This is a high-resolution (2048 x 1536 pixels) screen, so text and illustrations could look very big on a small resolution screen. Please check the sample chapter to see whether the book works for you or not, especially if you need to read on an Android device.
