Similar to how Lightroom presets work, styles in Capture One allow you to apply many adjustments to your RAW photos all in one swoop. You can, therefore, give your photo a specific creative look with only one click.

I've been doing a lot of my RAW editing in Capture One lately, and this has given me the chance to create some interesting styles. Here I decided to share them for free so that you can use them in your edits. For now, you'll find 25 Capture One styles, but send me a message here if you'd like to see more added over time. These styles are compatible with the latest version of Capture One (Capture One 12).

Some of these styles create quite a drastic effect, so don't hesitate to apply them to a new layer instead and reduce the opacity of the style layer so that it fits your photos just right. To learn more about styles in Capture One and how to use them, refer to this post.

Finally, here's another post I wrote if you're interested in learning how to create your own Capture One styles.
