    Don’t bother with the upgrade! I don’t see much difference to capture one 11.2 infact the radial gradient mask is not as good as the lightroom version.

      Not much difference? The entire user interface has been updated. How is a radial gradient not as good as Lightroom? It’s a radial gradient tool. You can make a shape, rotate the shape, change the fade area, etc.

      The Luminosity Mask alone is worth the price of admission.
