Here are five exciting features of Capture One for iPad:

Editing on the go

With Capture One for iPad, you can plug your camera directly into your iPad and import your photos. You can then view them on the iPad screen to organize, rate or color tag them. Once you have selected your best images, you can then start editing using either Styles or manual adjustments. Once you have finished editing, you can show your images on the screen to team members and clients on location or export them as JPEGs.

Cloud File Transfer

The subscription to Capture One for iPad also includes a quota for Cloud File Transfer. With this system, you can start working on your images on an iPad. You can then make the final touches on your desktop computer by transferring your work between the devices. The included Cloud File Transfer quota means you can store up to 1,000 photos in the cloud at any given time. You also get unlimited file transfers between your iPad and the Capture One desktop app.
