Phase One’s photo editor is getting a style update. On Thursday, Phase One launched style pack editing tools for Capture One. The styles apply automatic adjustments in a click while leaving plenty of room for the user to customize the look with manual adjustments before or after using the new styles, the company says.

The styles are designed to adjust the image’s “look and feel” while exposure, white balance, and levels are unaffected, Phase One says. Unlike Capture One’s presets that use a single tool, styles can use multiple tools and adjustments. Along with purchasing the new style packs, users can also create their own. Styles can be applied to single images, large batches or even applied to every photo during the import process.

The initial launch includes five different style packs, containing between 15 and 18 different actions in each pack. Each pack centers on a specific theme, including cinematic, black and white, matte, and seasonal. An essentials pack combines 16 different styles from the other bundles, while a sample pack with five styles is also available for users to try before they buy.

The presets are made possible through a recent Capture One update to 10.1 that gives style collections easier previews and more organization with nested style collections. The recent updates allow the styles to be used with more speed and efficiency.

The company says the style packs were designed with all users in mind, including both experienced pros and photographers new to the software. The styles also work with PSD files opened inside of the Capture One program. Each style pack retails for $69, excluding the free five style sample pack.

Capture One is a RAW photo editor developed by the medium-format camera company, Phase One. The program is also designed to work with Media Pro SE, which is an Adobe Lightroom competitor.

How to make a watermark: A quick and easy way to protect your photos
Here's how to make a watermark on any computer or smartphone
How to make a watermark

Love them or hate them, applying watermarks to your photographs is a way to prevent people from sharing your photographs online without due credit. Skilled Photoshoppers and Google can erase some watermarks, but watermarks will help prevent lazy image thieves from stealing your work, along with making it easy for viewers to see who took that photo.

Below, you will find a few of the different methods for adding a watermark to an image, ranging from simple to sophisticated, that you can use to make sure your photos are at least somewhat protected from taking on a life of their own without people knowing they’re yours.
The fast and free way
The cheapest way to add some form of copyright to your image is to use the text tool in any photo-editing program (heck, even Microsoft Paint will do the job) and tag your name on it. You can do it discreetly by writing it in a corner, in small font size, or you can plaster it over the entire photo. Draw a box around it, color it, use a funky font -- it’s entirely up to you. This method might not be attractive, but it’s easy and you don't have to buy any fancy software. Photo editors with bulk watermarking will be faster, but if you just want to watermark a shot or two, you probably already have a program that will work. For a cleaner approach, marking multiple images at once, or if you already own a photo editing software, read on.
