Yesterday Phase One has released an update to its popular RAW editing and catalog software Capture One 12.
Here are the main additions and improvements:
- new user interface and menus with a modern design and even more user friendly;
- new luminosity mask for selecting areas that have similar level of luminosity (also called "luma"), especially useful in landscapes;
- two new gradient masks: linear gradient and radial gradient, both can be resized, moved... rotatable and even made asymmetric, a degree of flexibility that current competitor Adobe Lightroom CC 2018 does not provide.
