Quote from: bemax56 on January 23, 2016, 05:20:13 PM... my standard workflow is to use a single session and process all of my files in Capture One and then catalog them in IMatch. I only used the catalog when I need to make a quick edit of a single photo for something. ...It's just another way to use CO, I hope I explained it clearly.

Actually, I found this technique posted on the Phase One User Forums.Create an empty catalog in some convenient location and set it up to leave the files in their original location. Now you can leave Capture One open or you can close it, makes no difference.To edit a photo you are viewing in IMatch, create a favorite for Capture One and drag the thumbnail over and drop it on the Capture One favorite. Capture One will open with the import image dialog. Click on the image and click on import one image. Then edit to suit yourself, output the result, etc. The edits you make will be stored in the catalog so you can return and re-edit later if you like. I noticed that if you edit a series of photos, they are all there in the catalog so you can revisit your edits. Once you are satisfied, you can return to IMatch and drag another image over and edit it. I have not found a way to drag more than one image at a time onto Capture One and my system seems to become unstable after about half a dozen edits but it does work and for some tasks is more convenient that opening the folder where the image is in a session and editing the photos there.By the way, I still use a single session as part of my workflow to process new pictures before I bring them into IMatch. I use the technique above for tweaking a image or resizing for output.I hope you find this helpful.
