11 Aug Capture One Beginners: Understanding Capture One Tool Panel Icons

On almost every tool panel in Capture One, there is a row of icons across the top of the panel. These are pretty much the same across most Tools, and in this post I go through each one and show you what they do.
As an example, I’m using the Exposure tool, but they are pretty much the same across most tools. The icons, I’m referring to, are the controls along the top right of the panel. One thing to be aware of is that some of these will be greyed out if working on a layer. In this example, we’re just working on the background with no added layers.
Another thing to be aware of is that Capture One refers to these panels as “Tools”. If you’re coming from Lightroom you may be used to referring to these as “Panels” but in Capture One, the official name is “tools”. From here on, I’ll be referring to the panel as the “Tool”
Auto. The first icon, which looks like a little magic wand, is the “Automatic” button for that tool. Pressing this will apply automatic settings for this tool. For example, pressing this on the Levels tool will apply Auto-Levels and so on. The usefulness of this varies from tool to tool, and some auto operations will be better than others. Copy and Apply. This icon opens up the copy and apply dialog. This allows you to copy any setting from the panel
