Do you prefer catalogs or sessions?

We can work with sessions and catalogs. However, we prefer the use of catalogs. This is why:

  • We can also work offline with catalogs (same as Smart Previews in Lightroom)
  • When working we sessions, we need RAW files, which means a larger file size. This can lead to problems during the upload and download of the images.
  • Catalogues work faster, use less storage space, and are „safer”.

Please note: If you need JPEG exports for your images, you will need to send us either the session or RAW files. JPEG exports cannot be done in catalogs.

If you want to know how to create a session or catalog in Capture One, please have a look at the other Capture One FAQ.
