Phase One announced a new update to Capture One Pro 10 (v. 10.1) that should come as a relief to those who like to do their processing and organizing in Capture One but their retouching in Photoshop.

With version 10.1, Capture One can now read and display Photoshop PSD files.

According to Phase One, you won’t be able to see or edit PSD layers, but you will be able to see your finalized images (after Photoshop tweaking) inside Capture One alongside the original RAW files. To do this, you’ll need to take advantage of the “round trip” workflow functionality outlined by Capture One here.

Another big update is aimed at improving support for Fuji X-Trans files. The software will now support LCC, Focus Mask, Chromatic Aberration Analysis and Purple Fringing suppression tools as well as OpenCL processing for X-Trans files.

Other new features of Capture One 10.1 include:

  • a new master reset function for before/after viewing
  • a redesigned Styles user interface to make selections easier
  • tokenized watermarking now supports image-specific watermarking, both for processing and for print
  • vectorscope orientation for color wheels

As with any new release, there’s also a host of bug fixes and new camera and lens support. Some headliners include Sony’s a9, Fuji’s X-T20, Panasonic’s GH5 and the Pentax KP.
