The Global Filters tool is helpful for sorting through different file types. In this video, Derrick Story shows you how to filter JPEG and RAW files in Capture One Pro.
- [Instructor] Global Filters is a handy tool and I think it's unique to Capture One Pro although I'm not exactly sure. This is the only place I've ever used it. And it what allows me to do is hide images by a certain file type. RAW, TIFF, JPEG and so forth. So let's put that to use right now. I added some JPEGs to my catalog here. They're from my iPhone, they were some cool analog shots and I thought it'd be nice to have them in here so I can keep track of them with the other stuff. But now I don't really know where they are.
Well, it's very easy to find them because it's a file type that I'm looking for. And there's two places that I can find Global Filters. One is in the FILTERS panel itself. If I go to three dots, we have Global Filters right there. Now the place that I usually use it is up here at View. And we'll go to Global Filters right here. So here's the thinking, I've got this whole catalog full of RAW files, I just added some JPEGs. I want to see the JPEGs, all I have to do is hide the RAW files and there are my JPEGs.
Is that cool? Just like that. And these are JPEGs shot with the iPhone so that's why you know, we're out and about now we don't have just the white backgrounds. We get to look at analog cameras in the wild. Woo hoo! (chuckles) So that's pretty neat. So that's all I had to do with Global Filters. So we have 286 total images now in our catalog. Up here, we see that we have 33 JPEGs.
Now I can go back to Global Filters and I could turn that off, Always Hide RAW Files. Now we have everything in here, 286, 286. Now if I decided that I wanted to keep the JPEGs in the catalog 'cause I think they're kind of neat but they're a bit of a distraction from the work that I'm doing for the film camera shop, what I can do is keep them in here but I can hide them. And so now all I have to do is go back to Global Filters and hide JPEG files.
So now we have 253. So even though we have 286 images in our catalog, under all images, we only see 253 that is because those JPEGs have been hidden. Alrighty, they're still there. We can still get them back anytime. All we have to do is turn off that Global Filter and they're they are. Now 286 and 286.
So that's a lot of fun. Global filers are very handy. It's easier than trying to set up a complicated search and we don't really have what we want for this in the FILTERS panel. Fortunately Capture One Pro gives us Global Filters so we can hide or show JPEGs, RAWs TIFFs and PNGs.
