Capture One Profile

What Is The Capture One Simulation Profile

The Capture One Simulation Profile is a profile which can be applied to RAW files in both Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Camera RAW.

Should I Use The Capture One Simulation Profile

In a recent forum post on the Digital Monochrome Forum, a discussion was taking place about Adobe and Capture One when it comes to processing RAW Files.

Part of that discussion referred to an article by Martin Evening in a Photoshop User magazine. Although the article was dated 2016, it does show some interesting findings. Part of the article demonstrates on how to create a Develop Preset to simulate these findings.

Since the article was published, changes to the way Profiles are presented in Adobe Lightroom and camera Raw have changed slightly so I recreated the steps outlined in the magazine article and made it compatible with latests versions of Lightroom and Camera Raw for anyone who wants to try it.

Applying The Profile In Lightroom

To apply the profile in Lightroom, select the Develop Module and then the Basic Tab and then choose the Profile Browser by pressing the icon which resembles four small rectangles.

In the Profile Browser, press the small triangle next to the Capture One Simulation section to reveal the profile. Select the profile and if required use the Amount Slider to alter the strength. Once done, press the Close button to apply the profile.

From here on, you can carry on adjusting the Raw image using any of the options available inside of Lightroom. Any adjustments you make will be applied on top of the profile.
