Phase One has announced the launch of Capture One 20, the latest version of its photo editing software. Additions and enhancements brought in Capture One 20 are based on user feedback, according to Phase One, which says the latest version of its software brings a 'highly intuitive and functional' UI that is easier for new users to learn and use.

Capture One 20 brings both updated and new features, including a redesigned Basic Color Editor that now works on Layers, a new Crop tool that Phase One says is Capture One's 'most advanced' crop tool to date, a new HDR tool that adds White and Black point sliders, a 're-engineered' Noise Reduction tool, and new scrolling tools.

In addition, Capture One users can expect enhanced versions of the software's appearance, interface, DNG support, copy and apply functions in Layers, and an entirely new 'Select Next When' option that makes it possible to automatically switch to the next image once a certain action has been performed (adding a color tag, etc).

Other enhancements include new toolbar text and icons, enhanced browser thumbnail resolution, improvements to the adjustments clipboard, and an enhanced White Balance Picker tool that has been re-engineered for what Phase One says is 'much higher consistency.' As expected, the updated software also brings new lens and camera support for models that include the Canon EOS 90D and M6 II, the Ricoh GR III, Nikon Z 50, and more.

Below is a feature overview of the newly-released Capture One 20:

Capture One 20 is available starting today with versions that limit support to camera models from Fujifilm and Sony (Capture One Pro Fujifilm 20 and Capture One Pro 20 for Sony, respectively).
