8 November 2022

In a blog entry today, Capture One announced the release of Capture One 23 with six new features focused on improving its post-production workflow.


New features and functionality include:

  • Smart Adjustments
  • Cull and Import upgrades
  • Layers in Styles
  • Change Capture Time
  • Capture One Live: Reviewer Management
  • Capture One Live: New Business Model

General User Experience Improvements and tweaks include:

  • Variants in Albums
  • Improved performance for Sony files
  • Improved performance for systems with multiple GPUs
  • New touchpoints for Capture One Live


Smart Adjustments

Designed for photographers shooting portraits, weddings, events and other images of people, it automatically adjusts Exposure and White Balance to match the look across images.

Smart Adjustments. Before above, After below.

The tool is designed for editing workflows where copy/apply cannot give a consistent result because the starting points are different. Smart Adjustments can be added in a Style where additional adjustments can be included as well, getting closer to one-click editing.

Cull and Import

The upgraded culling is designed for high-volume photographers, making it faster and more enjoyable to find the best shots.

Cull. View, rate, tag and browse.

View, rate, tag and browse with zero delay and get an easy overview of similar images for a faster selection. The added functionality is available both from the Importer and the new dedicated cull view.

Layers in Styles

You can now include Layers with individually defined opacities when saving Styles. By applying a Style with one or more Layers starting at reduced opacity, for example 50%, the effect of each Layer can easily be both increased and decreased, giving you full control of your Styles workflow.

Change Capture Time

Change the capture time on images to synchronize multiple cameras, or simply fix an incorrect camera clock or time zone. Available from the main Image menu, from the right-click menu, and within the Metadata and File Info Tools. Timestamp on images can also be changed before importing by changing it directly from the File Info Tool in the Importer.


Among the other improvements made in this release are:

  • Sony files load faster from the disk, enabling faster preview generation and rendering when zooming to 100 percent.
  • Exporting on certain Windows machines with multiple GPUs will be up to 100 percent faster.
  • The Capture One Live button has been renamed "Share online" for clarity.



  • 10-GB free disk space
  • 8-GB of RAM


  • macOS 11 (Big Sur), macOS 12 (Monterey), macOS 13 (Ventura)
  • Intel Core i3 (1st generation)


  • Windows 10 64-bit or Windows 11
  • Intel Core i3 (1st generation) or AMD Jaguar Family


Available now directly from Capture One, the new version is $24/month or $179/year by subscription of $299 for a license. A free trial version is also available for download.
