    In part three of the Kevin and Drew Capture One series, Drew mentions that he typically sets the base characteristics from Film Standard to Linear Response to create the most unprocessed version of his image. I understand that. Almost the next step, however, is to go to the Curves tool and set an RGB Contrast Curve, which adds contrast and shifts saturation slightly. Don’t these two steps negate each other? I guess I’d have to evaluate the Film Standard image against the linearized, curve added image.

    Linear response is a starting point. Then you do further edits to get the photo looking the way you like it.

    Hi Mark: I understand that. I just thought it ironic that he removed the base curve then added a base curve in quick succession. Seemed superfluous to me although I’m sure Drew has a reason for it.
