The toolkit has allowed me to become much more efficient. I have gone through the kit with C1 open so I can make the changes I find along the way as I read. The recent workspace download has been especially useful with its spaces for travel and keyboard control of the image processing.

I am fashion photographer and the only application for editing I use is Capture one. The good skintone, fashionable color toning, preserving right amount of color and detail - are the absolute must for my photography. I work with high end retouchers, and one of my teachers was Thomas Wiedenhofer from IED Milan, and if you know the guy - you understand what I am talking about and how difficult is to surprise me. Alex on Raw presets for Capture 1 - is a pure joy to use and the amount of work done by Alex has surprised me a lot, Its one of the most clean and smart tool to use and it helps a lot to simplify the job done. You press the button, you mix, you change opacity of layers and you get almost perfect picture, no matter what. Another important issue - clean colours in shadows, the skin is still the skin, it looks clean - I can't but repeat - Alex knew what he is doing and how to get professional result. I am very impressed and happy to use it. I had deleted half of my other presets immediately. I am pretty sure Alex on Raw will be my way to go tool for many fashion shootings. Thank you Alex.

I might say I have for a long time dismissed styles in Capture One after looking at a few of the early ones which were very extreme and didn't fit with my image style, but after buying your Toolkit and book I thought I'd re-visit them as layers and have found them to be a really useful and quick way to get a starting image to refine as I want - and they also let me quickly run through edit ideas I would never have considered, which can only improve my output - so already my purchase has paid off! Thank you!
