Capture One 22 15.2.0 update brings new perspective correction tools and more

This Capture One 22 15.2.0 update is free for existing users and brings a new set of controls for perspective adjustments with new automatic settings that bring it in line with Lightroom’s tools.

Lightroom has long had an advantage over Capture One for automated keystone corrections – great for fixing converging verticals and other perspective issues – but the Capture One 22 15.2.0 update closes that gap and goes even further.

Capture One’s redesigned Keystone tool now offers two tabs – Guides and Sliders to facilitate automatic and manual adjustments. Capture One can now automatically detect and correct perspective, which has always been one of Lightroom’s strengths.

Capture One can now automatically correct vertical keystone distortion, horizontal keystone distortion, or both. Additionally, it now allows you to “push” control points in fine increments using the arrow keys.

On top of that, Update 15.2.0 brings a new “Skew” adjustment to fix particularly tricky perspective issues with front facades of buildings, for example. Previously, keystone adjustments would sometimes leave a small, irreparable “bias” – which can now be corrected!
