Alpine for Capture One is a set of “Styles” that are designed to give your RAW images a stylised look. The idea for Alpine was to work with images of forests and mountains, to give the “woodsman” style of look that is popular certain outdoors magazines. The presets generally work by enhancing the greens and browns in an image, and are best suited to photos which contain a lot of these tones. Alpine is also designed to work best with lower contrast images, typically shot on misty or overcast days, although there are also some styles that will be better on sunnier, high contrast images too.

Some General Note about Styles
Not all images are suitable for all styles. Some images just won’t produce pleasing results and won’t be appropriate for the looks you may be trying to use, depending on the subject matter.
It is also important to note that any style won’t be a magic bullet. One should consider the use of these styles as a starting point. More often than not, images may require additional adjustments after applying presets. Sometimes you will need to adjust exposure or brightness and contrast depending on your photo. When trying Alpine, consider making a clone of the variant that you’re working on, so that you don’t lose any adjustments you’ve already made.
Alpine requires a Mac or PC running Capture One Pro 11 or later. You must have a computer capable of running this version of Capture One.
You should also have a good working knowledge of the software and basic computer operations such as copying files and folders.
