I'm (very) slowly getting my feet wet in Capture One (because Aperture has been discontinued). I have to admit it's been tough. I really didn't feel like I ever had to think very hard to use Aperture, but C1 has been a challenge, and I'm a freaking software developer for god's sake. I bought C1 because its layout is pretty similar to Aperture, the RAW imports are good, and it has a lot of useful editing controls, but I'm starting to wonder about the wisdom of this purchase for one simple reason:
I'm stumped by one of the simplest things I can think of when cataloging images -- how do I efficiently apply the same keyword, or keywords, to multiple images at once?
Oh, I realize there's a "copy/apply" feature. But that strikes me as completely broken. Is C1 really limited to that one goofy approach to applying a keyword to multiple images? If so, I'm simply astounded. I think any normal person who'd ever used software before would expect to be able to select multiple images and just type in the keyword(s) to apply to the selection.
I hope I'm wrong. If I'm not, I'll be very sad. If it had discovered this before paying nearly $300 for C1, I'd never have bought this software.
If you're wondering why I bought it if I think it handles this simple case so poorly, I guess I'd say I'd have never imagined C1 could get such a simple feature so wrong, and sadly never thought to try it while in the trial period (since in the trial period I just did a few "throwaway" sessions). It's just so basic a thing.
Please tell me I'm missing something!
