More Clever Tricks with Capture One Pro 10
More clever tricks with dynamic locations as well. So, let's actually dig a bit deeper into... the various options. So, let's... take that out. So let's Select All once more like so. So when we shot with Jeff we looked at some, kind of basic stuff... about exporting into two different folders again. So let's just look at a few other options. So right now all of these are green Color Tags. So let's just check I don't have any filters on. That's filters on like so. So turn those filters off. So again, let's just pick, let's go JPEG 2,000 pixels. Long Edge, that's the output is going to my output location which is decided in the Output Location tool. So let's show a few other things that you can do with the subfolder. So, if we think about some other Tokens that we might like to use, you've seen Rating, you've seen the Current Date, for example. You saw Session Sub Path earlier. So let's click in here and then we use a really simple one, which will be Color Tag. Like so. So this collectio...
n has red and green images, like so. Or denominated. So if we say okay once more, then that's gonna give us different folders for the different Color Tags. So if we click over here, we again get confirmed where my export is gonna go. Then if we Select All once more, we can click our Process cog up here, click that. And then, if we go to our Export location you see we've got green images popping in quite nicely, and red images popping in quite nicely as well. Now, don't forget you're not limited to one Token. You can combine Tokens together, and also typing manually as well. So it's not exclusively just Tokens, it's not exclusively just popping in text. Just remember you need to divide them up by using the Forward + Slash, like so. So if you wanted to have, the current date for example. Current Date, like so. And then /Color Tag, then we could do so. Oh, Color + Space, Color Tag. Then we could do so. Or if you want to mix that up with the number of... as I looked at a long time ago, we could do Vacation. Just manually typing, and then we could divide them up by the date that they were captured, if you wanted to track them that way as well. So it can be a combination of manually typing like so, and also using those Tokens as well. So if we go back to look at what happened with our export, and you can see there's all the greens, there's all the reds like so. Divided usefully up into those two folders. Let's have a look at, if we go to the Watermark. Just so you know exactly how that works. We can either drop her in some text. So if I just write, say... what's the Copyright symbol? That's oh, G I think, isn't it? David Grover like so. Then straight away you get an instant view of that placed over the images. So you can also make a Process Recipe that would specifically be your Watermarking one, like so. We've got some options down here for changing the font and the scale, and of where you actually want to put that directly on the image as well. So if we just open one of those up for example. If we change vertical, then we can pop that down the bottom, move it around left to right, change the opacity and so on. And I briefly mentioned the QuickProof. So if we actually turn QuickProof on this instead, you'll notice that it removes a lot of the options because this is only exporting the Preview file that we made earlier. But it's super super fast. So let's actually do that. Let's do, put this into a subfolder called Recipe Name. Which you can remember as well. And let's... Escape out of that. So we've got, how many images here? 29 images. We've got QuickProof, I just changed it to here going into Recipe Name. Let's just check where that's going. Into my Exports. So this is gonna be really really quick. Let's just close down a few of those windows. So let's press Process. Go to the Exports folder, look at the QuickProofs, and they're flying in really fast like so. So that's a really good way to get that out. And especially to put a Watermark or a Copyright or something like that on there as well. Now, the size of those QuickProofs, are gonna be exactly the same size as the Preview Preference that you have set in Caption One. So if we look at, Caption One Preferences, my previews are set to 2560 pixels across. So my outputs are gonna be exactly 2560 pixels across. So, a really fast way to get those outputs, just choose your Process Recipe, set it to QuickProof and they'll be exported in no time whatsoever. Fully color manage, correct colors, it's gonna look like your adjustments, but that benefit of having that really fast export as well.
