Professional RAW editor and converter for your photos

If you're an amateur photographer who takes photos in JPG format with a simple compact camera you probably won't need to deal with RAW images, but professionals certainly will.

Being a more professional-oriented format, RAW images require special software applications like Capture One Pro. This complete photo viewer and editor lets you manage your RAW images with ease. It features an interface divided into three different sections, namely system directory tree, folder contents preview and image preview. Capture One Pro also displays a complete analysis of each selected photo.

With Capture One Pro you'll be able to tweak exposure, white balance, focus and other values in your RAW images and then save them in other formats (the program also works as a RAW converter). Each time you apply a change to the image you'll be able to preview the result in real time.

The downside is that, because it's aimed at professionals, Capture One Pro is a little complex to use. Also, bear in mind that Capture One Pro is not compatible with all RAW formats, so you will need to check if your camera is supported before using the program.

Camera One Pro is a powerful tool that allows you to tweak, edit and convert your RAW files in a professional working environment.
