Subsequent processing of photos
Of course, you can also have photos processed with TagYour.Photos, which you already have in your Capture One catalogs. All you have to do is upload the metadata of your photos back into Capture One after processing TagYour.Photos. You can find the corresponding functions either via the context menu or in the main menu under Image > Load metadata . The functions are executed on the selected photos respectively. To apply them to all photos you have to select all photos in advance.
