Introduction
Introduction
Digital Photo Professional (hereinafter, “DPP”) is a high-performance
RAW image processing, viewing and editing software for EOS DIGITAL
cameras. It is often thought that RAW images are difficult to handle
compared with ordinary JPEG images, but using DPP, you can perform
advanced edits and print RAW images with ease.
RAW Images and Their Features
What is a RAW Image?
A RAW image is image data that has recorded output data of imaging
sensor. Because image processing does not occur inside the camera
when a photo is taken and the photo has been recorded in the special
form of “RAW image data + Image processing conditions information at
the time of shooting”, special software is needed to view or edit the
image.
* “RAW” means “in a natural condition” or “not processed or refined”.
What is RAW Development?
What Advantages Does a RAW Image Have?
RAW images are recorded in the format “RAW image data + Image
processing conditions information at the time of shooting”. When you
open a RAW image in DPP, the image is automatically developed and
you can view the image as an image to which image processing
conditions at the time of shooting have been applied.
Even if you perform various adjustments to the image you have opened
(it undergoes automatic development processing each time), only the
image processing conditions (development conditions) change and the
“original image data itself” remains unaffected. Consequently, image
deterioration is not a problem and it is the perfect image data for users
who want to get creative with their images after they have been shot.
In DPP, the “Image processing conditions information” that can be
adjusted is called a “Recipe”.
C
If described in terms of film, the concept of a RAW image is a shot
image not yet developed (latent image).
With film, the image appears for the first time when it is developed. In
the same way, for RAW images too, you cannot view them as images on
your computer unless you perform subsequent image signal processing.
Therefore, even though it is digital, this processing is called
“development”.

When is RAW Development done?
DPP automatically carries out this “development” processing when
RAW images are displayed in DPP.
As a result, RAW images displayed in DPP are images whose
development processing has been completed.
With DPP, you can view, edit and print RAW images without having to be
particularly conscious of the development processing.

Introduction
About the Tool Palette
You can adjust images with the tool palette by switching between the
[RAW], [RGB], [NR/ALO] and [LENS] tab sheets according to your
editing requirements.
Because adjustment made with the tool palette (it undergoes automatic
development processing each time) only changes the image processing
conditions, the “original image data itself” remains unaffected.
Therefore, there are no problems with image deterioration that arise with
editing and you can readjust your images any number of times.
See Chapter 2 onwards for more detailed information on the various
functions of the tool palette.

Adjusting Image Sharpness
You can make the overall atmosphere of an image harder or softer.
Adjustment can be made by selecting from two modes, [Sharpness] and
[Unsharp mask].
Controls the sharpness of an image by adjusting the
level of emphasis for the outline of the image. The
further to the right the [Sharpness] slider is moved (the
larger the setting), the more the edges are
emphasized for a sharper image.
[Unsharp mask]: Adjusts the image’s sharpness more finely.
[Strength]:
Shows the level of emphasis for the outline of the
image. The further to the right the slider is moved (the
larger the setting), the more the image’s edges are
emphasized for a sharper image.
[Fineness]:
Shows the fineness of the emphasized outline. The
further to the left the slider is moved (the smaller the
setting), the more fine detail can be emphasized.
[Threshold]: Sets “how much contrast difference there should be
compared to surroundings before emphasizing
edges”.
Select [Sharpness] from the list box and make the
setting.

Automatically Adjusting Brightness and Color (Tone Curve Assist)
In order to make the image a desirable standard image, automatically
adjust the image tone curve (p.143). You can select the degree of
automatic adjustment from “Standard” and “High”.
Click on the [RGB] tab sheet and click the desired
automatic adjustment button.
 Standard: Standard automatic adjustment. Suitable for most
images.
 High:
Use when the effect achieved in standard automatic
adjustment is not strong enough.
Images not suitable for automatic adjustment (tone curve
assist)
The result of automatic adjustment (tone curve assist) may not be as
expected with the following images:
• Images which have been shot with the proper exposure
• Images where the brightness is unbalanced
• Images which are too dark
• Images which have extreme backlighting
If you click the [
] button, the tone curve as well as the [Hue] and
[Saturation] revert to the default settings. Take care when adjusting
the [Hue] and [Saturation] individually (p.107).

The image is displayed in its trimmed condition.
• Edit image window: The thumbnail image is the same as the main
window display, and the enlarged image is the
same as the edit window display.
 Printing a trimmed image
You can print as a trimmed image by printing it in DPP.
 The image becomes a trimmed image when converted and saved
The trimmed RAW image actually becomes a trimmed image when
converted to a JPEG or TIFF image and saved (p.42).
 Images that have aspect ratio set will be displayed as trimmed
images
When aspect ratio information is attached to a RAW image shot with
EOS-1D X, EOS-1D Mark IV, EOS-1Ds Mark III, EOS-1D Mark III,
EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 7D, EOS 60D, EOS REBEL T4i/650D or EOS
REBEL T3i/600D, the set trimming range based on the aspect ratio
information is displayed. Since the image is not actually trimmed, you
can change the trimming range or revert to the condition before
trimming.
However, when a JPEG image is shot in a [4:3], [16:9] or [1:1] aspect
ratio set with the EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 60D, EOS REBEL T4i/650D
or EOS REBEL T3i/600D, its trimming range cannot be changed nor
reverted to the condition before trimming, since the image is actually
trimmed and saved in the set trimming ratio.*
When reverting to the condition before trimming is performed based
on the aspect ratio information at the time of shooting, click the
[Reset] button. Also, if you want to cancel all the trimming range, click
the [Clear] button (p.135).

 Simple printing of RAW images
 High quality printing using the color reproduction range of Adobe RGB
and a Canon inkjet printer
To perform this printing, it is necessary to first install EPP version 3.5 or
later on your computer. When using an Easy-PhotoPrint EX-compatible
inkjet printer, it is recommended that you print using Easy-PhotoPrint EX
(p.43). Note that since EPP is not compatible with Mac OS X 10.7,
printing is not possible with a computer running on Mac OS X 10.7.
DPP is also compatible for printing with Easy-PhotoPrint Pro (p.87).

Introduction
About the RGB Tool Palette
You can adjust images with the tool palette by switching between the
[RAW], [RGB], [NR/ALO] and [LENS] tab sheets according to your
editing requirements.
The [RGB] tool palette functions are the same as ordinary image editing
software, such as tone curve adjustment that is explained here, with
which you can adjust RAW images.
However, because the adjustment width of the functions in the [RGB]
tool palette is wider than the [RAW] tool palette, the image color may be
saturated, or the image quality may deteriorate if you adjust too much.
Therefore we recommend for functions other than tone curve
adjustment (p.58) and automatic adjustment (p.33), that you adjust
images using the same functions available in the [RAW] tool palette.
See Chapter 5 for explanations on functions of the [RGB] tool palette
other than tone curve adjustment.

Using the tool palette
We recommend that as a general principle you edit RAW images using
the [RAW] tool palette. However, where the adjustment width with the
[RAW] tool palette is not wide enough and you wish to use the special
functions in the [RGB] tool palette, we recommend that you adjust your
images at the necessary lowest limit with the [RGB] tool palette after
having completed basic adjustment with the [RAW] tool palette.
Use the adjustment function of the [NR/ALO] and [LENS] tool palette
(p.129) when applying the Auto Lighting Optimizer (p.61), reducing
noise (p.62) or correcting aberration (p.63) after you have made any
required adjustments with the [RAW] and [RGB] tool palettes.
Index

Using the Auto Lighting Optimizer
If the shooting result is dark or the contrast is low, you can use the Auto
Lighting Optimizer function to auto-correct the brightness and contrast,
and obtain a more pleasant image.
You can also change the settings of the image shot with the camera’s
Auto Lighting Optimizer function.
This function is compatible only with RAW images shot with EOS-1D X,
EOS-1D Mark IV, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 7D, EOS 60D,
EOS 50D, EOS REBEL T4i/650D, EOS REBEL T3i/600D, EOS REBEL

noise reduction level that suits the camera settings beforehand
as the default.
• When [Set as defaults] is selected, you can pre-set a preferred
default setting for the noise reduction level beforehand. This is
particularly useful for applying noise reduction to all the images
in a folder at once, such as batch noise reduction for images
with high ISO speeds.
However, for images with recipes attached, the noise level
recorded in the recipe will be applied.
 If [Luminance noise] has been set, resolution may be reduced
along with reduction of noise.
 If [Chrominance noise] has been set, color bleeding may occur
along with reduction of noise.

Making Corrections
You can make corrections to any of the four aberrations as below, either
one at a time or simultaneously.
 Peripheral illumination
 Chromatic aberration (color fringing which occurs in the periphery of
an image)
 Color blur (blue or red color blur which sometimes occurs at the edge
of the highlighted area of an image)
 Distortions

 Emphasize Linearity
This converts the image to a “central projection” style image. This
projection method is used with general lenses.
Differing from fisheye lenses, central projection displays straight lines
as straight lines.
By selecting this option, a wide-view panoramic image can be
obtained. However, the periphery is stretched, resulting in decreased
resolution.

 Emphasize Distance
This converts the image to an “equidistant projection" style image.
This projection method preserves distance relationships.
Equidistant projection displays the same distances from the center to
the periphery as the same distances.
In particular, when shooting a celestial body such as the celestial
sphere, any height above the horizon (declination) is captured at an
equal interval. This method is therefore used in such photography as
celestial photography (star maps, solar path diagrams, etc.).
 Emphasize Center
This converts the image to an “orthogonal projection” style image.
With this projection method, the center is more emphasized.
Since an orthogonal projection allows a subject of the same
brightness to be displayed as occupying the same area in the image,
this method has typical uses in photography for celestial luminance
distributions and center-emphasized animal photography.
By selecting this option, the center is stretched and may result in
decreased resolution.

 Emphasize Periphery
This converts the image to a “stereographic projection” style image.
This projection method emphasizes the periphery.
Stereographic projection allows position relationships on a spherical
surface, such as N, S, E, W on a map, to be displayed correctly. It is
therefore used for world maps and monitoring cameras.
By selecting this option, the periphery is stretched and may result in
decreased resolution.

While selecting any of the options [Emphasize Linearity],
[Emphasize Distance], [Emphasize Periphery], or [Emphasize

the conversion does not exactly apply each projection method in
their precise sense.
Accordingly, care should be taken since they are not suited to
scientific or other such purposes.

Correcting Multiple Images at a Time
 When correcting RAW images shot with the cameras in the table below,
if shooting distance information has been saved to the image, the slider
is set automatically according to this shooting distance information.
However, if no shooting distance information is saved to the image, the
slider is set automatically to the right end at infinity position and a [<!>]
appears above the slider.
If the image’s shooting distance is not infinite, you can minutely adjust
the distance by operating the slider while looking at the screen.

Select multiple images to correct in the main window. Display tool
palette by clicking the [Tool palette] button (p.124) in the toolbar. If you
perform correction procedures (p.65) when tool palette is displayed, you
can apply the same corrections to all the images selected in the main
window.
Also, you can apply same corrections by copying the recipe of the
corrected image and pasting it onto the multiple images (p.41).
Additional information
 Some noise appeared in the periphery of an image after
correcting [Peripheral illumination]
You can reduce the noise by using luminance and/or chromatic noise
reduction of the noise reduction function (p.62). However, if you had
applied high amount of [Peripheral illumination] correction to the
images that have been shot at night or with a high ISO speed, the
noise might not be reduced.
 The image appears with less resolution after correcting
[Distortion]
You can make the image similar to the one before correction by
applying more sharpness with the sharpness adjusting function
(p.31).
 The colors of the image became weaker after correcting [Color
blur]
You can make the image similar to the one before correction by
adjusting the color tone (p.29) and/or the color saturation (p.107) to
make the color deeper.
 The result of [Color blur] correction cannot be detected
[Color blur] correction is effective for correcting blue or red color blur
which occurs at the edge of the highlighted area of an image. If
conditions do not match, correction cannot be made.

Using the Digital Lens Optimizer
This function enables the resolution of images to be increased by
removing any remaining aberration related to image-forming capability
or any deterioration of resolution resulting from diffraction phenomena
that are unavoidable as long as light must pass through the lens. These
optical phenomena cannot be corrected under [Lens aberration
correction] (p.63). Correction is achieved using the designed value of
each lens. The images that can be corrected are RAW images shot
using any of the following “compatible cameras” and “compatible
lenses”. JPEG, TIFF, S-RAW, and M-RAW images cannot be corrected.
To use this function, [Lens data] for the lens used to shoot images first
needs to be downloaded to your computer.
Before using the Digital Lens Optimizer, it is recommended that you set
[Sharpness] or [Strength] for [Unsharp mask] for images to 0.

Introduction
Additional information
Useful functions of the copy stamp window
 The dust-erased image can be reverted to its original condition
at any time
A dust-erased image is displayed or printed as a dust-erased image.
However, since the dust on the image is not actually erased, you can
always revert to the original image by clicking the [Undo] button in the
copy stamp window or performing the “Re-Editing an Image”
procedure (p.43).
 Check dust erasure in the copy stamp window
Check dust erasure in the copy stamp window. Images before dust
erasure are displayed in other windows and you will be unable to
check them.
 Printing dust-erased images
You can print as a dust-erased image by printing it in DPP.
 The [Apply Dust Delete Data] button cannot be clicked
Even with an image that has Dust Delete Data attached to it in the
camera, if there is no dust to remove by DPP from the image, the
[Apply Dust Delete Data] button will be disabled.
 To erase dust spots that cannot be erased with the automatic
dust erasure processing
In automatic dust erasure processing, dust spots are erased based on
information relating to dust saved in the Dust Delete Data. However,
there may be cases where you will not be able to erase dust spots
depending on the type of dust. If this occurs, erase those dust spots
using the repair function (p.75) or the copy stamp function (p.77).
 The image becomes a dust-erased image when converted and
saved
The dust-erased RAW image actually becomes a dust-erased image
when converted to a JPEG or TIFF image and saved (p.42).
 Checking the dust erased spots
After step 3, you can display and check in detail the erased dust spots
one by one by pressing the <F> key. (Press the <B> key to return to
the previous dust spot.)
 Canceling a specified erased dust spot only
After step 3, you can press the <F> key or the <B> key to display the
erased dust spot, and then press the <delete> key to cancel only the
erased dust spot displayed.
 Switch between full screen display/normal screen display using
shortcut keys
You can also switch between full screen display/normal screen
display by pressing the < > + <F11> keys.
 Applying the dust erasure result to another image
You can apply dust erasure to the same place in another image by
clicking the [Copy] button to copy the dust erasure results and then
displaying the other image to which you want to apply the results and
clicking the [Paste] button.

Additional information
Useful functions of the copy stamp window
 Click several times when dust spots are not erased completely
Where unwanted dust spots are not erased even after performing
step 5 once, they may be erased completely when you click several
times.
 Mainly spots of dust can be erased with the repair function
Spots of dust can be erased with the repair function. You may be
unable to erase lines of dust. In this case, use the copy stamp
function (p.77).
 The dust-erased image can be reverted to its original condition
at any time
A dust-erased image is displayed or printed as a dust-erased image.
However, since the dust on the image is not actually erased, you can
always revert to the original image by clicking the [Undo] button in the
copy stamp window or performing the “Re-Editing an Image”
procedure (p.43).
 Check dust erasure in the copy stamp window
Check dust erasure in the copy stamp window. Images before dust
erasure are displayed in other windows and you will be unable to
check them.
 Printing dust-erased images
You can print as a dust-erased image by printing it in DPP.
 The image becomes a dust-erased image when converted and
saved
The dust-erased RAW image actually becomes a dust-erased image
when converted to a JPEG or TIFF image and saved (p.42).
 Checking the dust erased spots
After step 5, you can display and check in detail the erased dust spots
one by one by pressing the <F> key. (Press the <B> key to return to
the previous dust spot.)
 Canceling a specified erased dust spot only
After step 5, you can press the <F> key or the <B> key to display the
erased dust spot, and then press the <delete> key to cancel only the
erased dust spot displayed.
 Switch between full screen display/normal screen display using
shortcut keys
You can also switch between full screen display/normal screen
display by pressing the < > + <F11> keys.
 Applying the dust erasure result to another image
You can apply dust erasure to the same place in another image by
clicking the [Copy] button to copy the dust erasure results and then
displaying the other image to which you want to apply the results and
clicking the [Paste] button.
To apply dust erasure to the same place in several other images, you
can efficiently erase dust spots by clicking the images while holding
down the < > key in the main window, or, by selecting multiple
images by clicking the first image and then clicking the last image
while holding down the <shift> key, and then displaying the copy
stamp window.

 Viewing and saving RAW images
 JPEG image quality
You can select from two types of image quality for displaying/saving
RAW images: high image quality with false color reduction processing
and noise reduction function (p.62) used, or high speed without false
color processing and noise reduction function used.
[Remove block noise and mosquito noise]
 You can improve the quality of a JPEG image by reducing the noise
particular to JPEG images.
This setting is also effective when RAW images are converted to
JPEG images and saved (p.42, p.99) and for JPEG images that have
been saved with a different name.
[High quality]
 False color reduction processing is automatically applied, and the
image can be displayed/saved as a false color reduced-high quality
image. Furthermore, you can use the noise reduction function (p.62)
to reduce the luminance noise and chrominance noise.
 Because the effects of the false color reduction processing and noise
reduction function are difficult to see in the [50% view] or [Fit to
window] display of the edit window and edit image window, use
[100% view] or [200% view] to check.
 We recommend that you normally set [High quality] for a balance
between image quality and display speed.
[View images at high speed (moiré reduction off)] of [High quality]
 If you checkmark [View images at high speed (moiré reduction off)],
when the image is displayed in the edit window or the edit image
window, false color reduction processing is not applied. However, you
can use the noise reduction function.
 As the setting is the same as [High quality] other than for image
display, the image undergoes false color reduction processing when it
is saved.
The extent of the improvement in noise reduction
The higher the JPEG image’s compression rate, the more noise is
reduced. When the compression rate is low, the effect of noise reduction
is negligible.
You can set the resolution for RAW images converted and saved as
JPEG or TIFF images (p.42, p.99).
C
[High speed]
 Since false color reduction processing is not applied, the display
speed of a RAW image in the edit window or the edit image window,
and the time it takes to save a RAW image is shorter than with [High
quality].
 You cannot use the noise reduction function (p.62).
 Depending on the image, it may be displayed/saved with false color
or noise being noticeable.
For images shot with ISO speed range expansion set, the difference
in image quality between [High quality] and [High speed] becomes
remarkable. To check the image quality of images shot with ISO
speed range expansion, make sure to set [High quality] and check
the images in the edit window or edit image window.

You can set a default beforehand for the noise reduction level.
RAW Images
• When [Apply camera settings] is selected, you can pre-set a noise
reduction level that suits the camera settings beforehand as the
default.
• When [Set as defaults] is selected, you can pre-set a preferred
default setting for the noise reduction level beforehand.
JPEG/TIFF Images
• You can set a desired default noise reduction level beforehand.
For images not having a recipe attached, the default set here for noise
reduction level is applied. However, if you want to apply settings to
images in the opened folder, you need to re-open the folder after making
settings here. For images with a recipe attached, the noise level
recorded in the recipe remains as it is and the default for noise reduction
level set here is not applied.

 Default settings of RGB Tone curve mode
You cannot apply changes to the settings until you re-open the folder.
Changes are not applied to the edited image
Even if the default setting is changed, the new default setting is not
applied to edited (i.e., adjusted using the tool palette, trimmed, dusterased) images. Change each one individually.
Advantages of setting a noise reduction default
In instances where the same level of noise occurs in several images,
such as images shot with high ISO speed, setting an appropriate default
noise reduction setting enables you to apply a batch noise reduction
default to all the images displayed in DPP (excluding images with a
recipe attached). This eliminates the need to apply noise reduction to
each individual image. And, since you always shoot with the same
conditions, it is also useful when you want to set the same noise
reduction level for all shot images.
92
 Default settings of Work color space
Color Management
You can specify settings relating to color management, such as settings
for work color space, conditions for color matching, etc.
You can select from five types of color space (p.144) that is applied as a
default setting in RAW images. Color space that has been set is applied
as the color space when a RAW image is converted and saved (p.42,
p.99) or printed (p.43, p.46, p.49, p.85 to p.88).
 If you have changed the setting, and you restart DPP, the new setting
is applied as the default setting color space.
 You can check color space that has been set in an image in the main
window (p.124, p.125), the edit window (p.127), and the edit image
window (p.133).
Changes are not applied to the edited image
Even if the default setting is changed, the new default setting is not
applied to edited (i.e., adjusted using the tool palette, trimmed, dusterased) images. Change each one individually.

You can set a color space that is different from the default settings

 Display setting (color setting of the monitor)
Where a profile (p.143) is attached to the monitor you are using, you can
display an image in more faithful colors by setting the profile.
 Select the [Monitor profile], click the [Browse] button and in the dialog
box that appears, select a profile for your monitor.

Precise coloring with a third-party monitor color reader
If you use a profile created using a third-party monitor color reader,
images can be displayed in even more precise colors.
93
 Setting of printing profile (color setting of the printer)
 Setting of CMYK simulation profile
Where a profile (p.143) is attached to the printer you are using to print
images, you can print an image and simulate the colors displayed on
screen by setting the profile. The profile that has been set is applied to
all printing (p.49, p.85, p.86) except for printing using a Canon inkjet
printer (p.43, p.46) or linked printing (p.87, p.88).
You can select the color when printing in the CMYK environment of a
printing machine, etc. from four types of profiles (p.144) and perform
simulation on screen.
 When CMYK simulation has been set, [CMYK] appears (p.124, p.125,
p.127, p.133) in the bottom of the main window, edit window and edit
image window, and colors can be checked.
 To temporarily cancel CMYK simulation, press the <space> key.
The adjustment function of the printer driver should not be
used
Even if you set a printer profile, if you use the color adjustment function
of the printer driver, the image may print in colors different from those
displayed on screen.
Automatic settings for printing using EPP EX, EPP, and
linked printing
If you are printing using a Canon inkjet printer (p.43, p.46) or using
linked printing (p.87, p.88), a profile is set automatically even when the
[Printing profile] setting is not performed. This allows you to print faithful
colors easily.
 Rendering intents when using Easy-PhotoPrint
You can set a rendering intent (matching method) (p.144) for printing
using Easy-PhotoPrint (p.46).
 The rendering intent is ordinarily set to [Relative Colorimetric].
 When colors with [Relative Colorimetric] are not satisfactory, set to
[Perceptual].

Utilizing Adjustment Contents (Recipe)
All the adjustment contents (recipe) made using the tool palette can be
saved as an individual recipe file (extension “.vrd”) and loaded and
applied to another image.
You can edit images efficiently by selecting and adjusting one image
from images shot with the same shooting environment and batch
applying the adjustment results to a large number of images.
Additional information
 Recipe data includes tool palette contents
Recipe data includes adjustments made with the tool palette ([RAW],
[RGB], [NR/ALO] and [LENS]). For this reason, other editing content
such as trimming or dust-erasure (copy stamp) is not included in the
recipe data.
 Recipes adjusted with the [RAW] tool palette can only be applied
to RAW images
Adjustments in the [RAW] tool palette, which can only be made for
RAW images, are not applied to a JPEG or TIFF image even if they
are pasted.

Editing JPEG and TIFF Images
With DPP, you can adjust JPEG and TIFF images in the same way as
RAW images using the [RGB] and [NR/ALO] tool palettes.
Because adjustment made with the tool palette (recipe) only changes
the image processing conditions, the “original image data itself” remains
unaffected. Therefore, there are no problems with image deterioration
that arise with editing and you can readjust your images any number of
times.
Introduction
About the RGB Tool Palette
With the functions in the [RGB] tool palette, you can adjust JPEG and
TIFF images with the same functions as ordinary image editing
software.
However, because the adjustment width of the adjustment functions in
the [RGB] tool palette is wider than the [RAW] tool palette, the image
color may be saturated, or the image quality may deteriorate if you
adjust too much. Therefore, take care not to adjust your images to an
excessive degree.
You can adjust RAW images with the functions in the [RGB] tool palette.
However, for functions other than tone curve adjustment (p.108) and
automatic adjustment (p.104), we recommend adjusting RAW images
using the same functions available in the [RAW] tool palette.

In DPP all the adjustments (image processing conditions information)
made with the tool palette can be saved in the image as data called a
“recipe” (p.119), or can be saved, downloaded and applied to other
images as a separate recipe file (extension “.vrd”) (p.96, p.119).

Introduction
Automatically Adjusting Brightness and Color (Tone Curve Assist)
Images not suitable for automatic adjustment (tone curve
assist)
In order to make the image a desirable standard image, automatically
adjust the image tone curve (p.143). You can select the degree of
automatic adjustment from “Standard” and “High”.
The result of automatic adjustment (tone curve assist) may not be as
expected with the following images:
• Images which have been shot with the proper exposure
• Images where the brightness is unbalanced
• Images which are too dark
• Images which have extreme backlighting
Click the desired automatic adjustment button.
 Standard: Standard automatic adjustment. Suitable for most
images.
 High:
Use when the effect achieved in standard automatic
adjustment is not strong enough.

When there are no white areas in your image, you can adjust the white
balance by clicking on a grey point of the image in step 2. This has the
same adjustment result as selecting a white point.
 The image is adjusted based on the average value of 5 × 5 pixel
range from the clicked point.
 The histogram display changes according to adjustment. You can
also fix the histogram display to the display before any
adjustments (p.92).

tool palette (p.129) using the [Luminance noise reduction] and
[Chrominance noise reduction] sliders, and then clicking the [Apply]
button.
 If [Luminance noise] has been set, resolution may be reduced
along with reduction of noise.
 If [Chrominance noise] has been set, color bleeding may occur
along with reduction of noise.
 You can set the batch processing settings for noise reduction
beforehand, using [Default noise reduction settings] in the [Tool
palette] tab sheet in the [Preferences] (p.92). This is particularly
useful for applying noise reduction to all the images in a folder at
once, such as batch noise reduction for images with high ISO
speeds. However, where images have a recipe attached, the
noise level recorded in the recipe is applied.

About trimmed images
 The trimmed range can be reverted to its original condition at
any time
A trimmed image is displayed or printed as a trimmed image.
However, since the image is not actually trimmed, you can always
revert to the original image by clicking the [Reset] button in the
trimming/angle adjustment window or performing the “Re-Editing an
Image” procedure (p.120).
 Display of the trimmed image in each window
• Main window:
The frame showing the trimming range is
displayed on the image (p.126).
• Edit window:
The image is displayed in its trimmed condition.
• Edit image window: The thumbnail image is the same as the main
window display, and the enlarged image is the
same as the edit window display.
 Printing a trimmed image
You can print as a trimmed image by printing it in DPP.
 The image becomes a trimmed image when saved as a separate
image
The trimmed JPEG or TIFF image actually becomes a trimmed image
when saved as a separate image (p.119).
 Images that have aspect ratio set will be displayed as trimmed
images
When aspect ratio information is attached to a RAW image shot with
EOS-1D X, EOS-1D Mark IV, EOS-1Ds Mark III, EOS-1D Mark III,
EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 7D, EOS 60D, EOS REBEL T4i/650D or EOS
REBEL T3i/600D, the set trimming range based on the aspect ratio
information is displayed. Since the image is not actually trimmed, you
can change the trimming range or revert to the condition before
trimming.
However, when a JPEG image is shot in a [4:3], [16:9] or [1:1] aspect
ratio set with the EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 60D, EOS REBEL T4i/650D
or EOS REBEL T3i/600D, its trimming range cannot be changed nor
reverted to the condition before trimming, since the image is actually
trimmed and saved in the set trimming ratio.*
When reverting to the condition before trimming is performed based
on the aspect ratio information at the time of shooting, click the
[Reset] button. Also, if you want to cancel all the trimming range, click
the [Clear] button (p.135).

Re-Editing an Image
Introduction
Only the image processing conditions are changed in images adjusted
with the tool palette (p.103 to p.110), so the “original image data itself”
remains unaffected. Also, the trimming range or dust-erasure
information of a trimmed image (p.111) or dust-erased image (p.114 to
p.118) is simply saved to the image.
For this reason, you can undo any adjustments saved (p.119) to the
image, trimming range and dust-erasure information, and revert to the
condition when last saved, or when the image was shot.
1 Select the image that is to be re-edited.
2 Select the [Adjustment] menu  desired item.

Troubleshooting
Introduction
If DPP is not operating correctly, refer to the items below.
An image could not be adjusted
Installation could not be completed correctly
 You cannot install software unless you are logged into an account with
Administrator privileges. Log in again into an account with
Administrator privileges. For how to log in and how to specify
Administrator settings, refer to the User’s Manual for the Macintosh
computer you are using or for OS.
DPP does not work
 DPP does not operate correctly on a computer if its system
requirements are not met. Use DPP on a computer with compatible
system requirements (p.3).
 Even if your computer has the RAM capacity (memory) described in
the system requirements (p.3), if other applications are running at the
same time as DPP, you may not have sufficient RAM (memory). Quit
any applications other than DPP.
The card reader does not detect the SD card.
 The JPEG and TIFF images cannot be adjusted using the image
adjustment function of the [RAW] tool palette. Adjust these images
with the [RGB] tool palette (p.128).
A recipe could not be pasted (applied) to another image
 You cannot paste (apply) rotation (p.10, p.25, p.124, p.132, p.133),
trimming (p.38, p.111), dust erasure (copy stamp) (p.73 to p.77, p.114
to p.118) of an image to another image as a recipe. Trim the image or
erase dust of the image using the copy/paste function in each window
and rotate each image individually.
 The adjustment contents (recipe) of RAW images that has been
adjusted with the [RAW] tool palette cannot be applied to JPEG or
TIFF images (p.128).
 The Auto Lighting Optimizer (p.61) is a function that is only available

 Depending on the card reader and computer OS used, SDXC cards
might not be correctly detected. In such a case, connect your camera
and computer with the provided interface cable, and transfer the
images to your computer using EOS Utility (provided software).
Images do not display properly
 Images that are not supported by DPP do not display. There are
various types of JPEG and TIFF images, so JPEG images other than
Exif 2.2, 2.21 or 2.3 compatible images and TIFF images other than
Exif compatible images may not display properly (p.3).
 When a dust-erased image (p.73 to p.77, p.114 to p.118) is displayed
in a window other than the copy stamp window, it is displayed as it
was before dust erasure was performed. Check dust-erased images
in the copy stamp window.

Color appears weak in the image when viewed with
other software
 A RAW image which has a color space other than sRGB set (p.77,
p.93) and is then converted and saved as a JPEG or TIFF image will
appear weak in color when viewed in software that is only compatible
with sRGB color space. In this case, set the RAW image color space
to sRGB, convert again to a JPEG or TIFF image and save, and then
view this image.

Deleting the Software (Uninstalling)
The colors of the image displayed on screen and
the colors of the printed image do not match
 If the color of the monitor that displays an image is not adjusted
correctly, or if a profile for a printer that is to print images, has not
been set up, the color of the image displayed on screen and the color
of the printed photograph may differ greatly. If the color of the monitor
that displays images is corrected (p.93) and a profile for a printer is
set up correctly (p.93), the color of a printed photograph and the color
of an image on screen can be more closely matched. Using a Canon
printer (p.43, p.46) or linked printing (p.87, p.88) automatically sets up
printer profiles, so you only need to set the color of the monitor to
bring the colors closer together.
 When printing using Easy-PhotoPrint and the Easy-PhotoPrint
automatic compensation function and the various types of image
adjustment functions are operating, colors are not printed correctly.
Cancel all Easy-PhotoPrint image adjustment functions (p.47).
 Even if you set a printer profile, if you use the color adjustment
function of the printer driver, the image may print in colors different
from those displayed on screen. Do not use the color adjustment
function of the printer driver.
 Quit any applications before uninstalling the software.
 Log into the account used when installation was performed.
 When you have moved the folders and the software to be deleted to
the Trash, select the [Finder] menu  [Empty Trash] and empty the
Trash. You cannot reinstall the software until you have emptied the
Trash.

 If a large number of images are printed in batches, printing may stop
in the middle or the images may not be printed. Reduce the number of
images to print or increase the memory on your computer.
A file remains in the folder after images are deleted
 Delete [CRW_YYYY.THM] (camera index display image) if it remains
in the folder from which images have been deleted (p.49).
* Numbers are entered for [YYYY] in the file name.
 Open the [Canon Utilities] folder.

RAW image
bit number
EOS DIGITAL camera RAW images are recorded in an uncompressed
14bit or 12bit format.
Because RAW images are special images in an undeveloped status,
you need software with development processing functions such as DPP
in order to view them. The advantage of the undeveloped RAW images
is that you can make a variety of adjustments to RAW images with
almost no deterioration of the image.
* “RAW” meaning “in a natural condition” or “not processed or refined”.
Binary unit of information volume in the color of an image. The number
shows the number of bits per pixel.
The larger the number of bits, the more the color numbers and the
gradation becomes smoother. A one-bit image is a black-and-white
image.
JPEG image
The most ordinary image in non-reversible compressed 8bit format.
The advantage of this is that by saving at a high compression rate, the
file size can be small, even for image data that has a high pixel count.
Because during saving and compression part of the data is thinned out
to make the file size small, every time you edit or save, the image
deteriorates.
With DPP, even if you repeat editing/saving, only the recipe data is
modified, and no overwriting or compression occurs so the original
image data does not deteriorate.
* JPEG is an abbreviation of “Joint Photographic Experts Group”.
TIFF image
Color Management System (Color Matching)
Digital cameras that shoot images, monitors that display images, and
printers that print images each have a different way of creating color. For
this reason, there may be a difference between the color of an image
when viewed on a monitor and when printed.
A color management system is a system for managing color in order to
bring these colors closer together. With DPP, you can more closely
match color between different devices using ICC profiles between
different devices.
ICC profiles
C
Bitmap-format image recorded in a 8bit/16bit uncompressed format.
Because TIFF images are in uncompressed format, they are suitable for
saving an image while maintaining the original high image quality.
* TIFF is an abbreviation of “Tagged Image File Format”.
Recipe
The “Image processing conditions information” for RAW images that can
be edited in DPP is called a “recipe”.
Further, in DPP, you can perform image editing on JPEG and TIFF
images that use “recipes” as with RAW images.

ICC profiles are files containing color information such as color
characteristics and color space for various devices, set by the ICC
(International Color Consortium). Most devices such as the monitor we
use to view images or the printer we use to print images can be
managed (color management) using these ICC profiles and the color
between different devices can be more closely matched.
DPP has color management that uses these ICC profiles.
Tone Curve
A tone curve shows values before adjustment (input) as the horizontal
axis on a graph, and the values after adjustment (output) as the vertical
axis. Since the values of before adjustment and after adjustment are the
same before any adjustment is made, the tone curve displays as a
straight line from bottom left to top right, and by changing this tone
curve, you can adjust in detail the image’s brightness, contrast and
color. The more you go right on the horizontal axis, the more the plus
value it becomes, and the higher you go on the vertical axis, the more
the plus value it becomes.

Color space
CMYK simulation profiles
A color space is the reproducible color range (color gamut
characteristics). DPP supports the following five kinds of color space.
sRGB :
Standard color space for Windows. Widely used for
the standard color space of monitors, digital
cameras, and scanners.
Adobe RGB :
A wider color space than sRGB. Mainly used for
printing for business purposes.
Apple RGB :
Standard color space for Macintosh. A slightly
wider color space than sRGB.
ColorMatch RGB : A slightly wider color space than sRGB. Mainly
used for printing for business purposes.
Wide Gamut RGB : A wider color space than Adobe RGB.
Refer to the color chart below for the color area of each color space.
A profile that simulates colors when printing in a CMYK environment
(printing machine, etc.). With DPP, you can simulate color with four
types of profile.
Euro Standard :
Profile normally used for book printing in
Europe, suitable for simulation of standard
European printing.
JMPA :
Profile normally used for book printing, etc. in
Japan, suitable for simulation of magazine
advertising standard color printing.
U.S.Web Coated :
Profile normally used for book printing in
North America, suitable for simulation of
North American standard printing.
JapanColor2001 type3 : Profile becoming a standard in the Japanese
printing industry, suitable for simulation of
JapanColor standard printing.

Rendering intents are color conversion methods when printing an image.
The conversion method of each rendering intent is shown below.
Perceptual :
Before and after conversion, all colors are
converted to maintain the relationship between
colors. Even where colors slightly change, you
can print a natural-looking image which has
maintained color harmony. However,
depending on the image, the saturation may
change overall.
Relative Colorimetric : There will not be much conversion to colors
which are similar before and after conversion,
but colors which are not similar are converted
appropriately. Because there are little changes
to similar colors which comprise most of an
image, you can print a natural-looking image in
which the saturation has not changed greatly.
However, depending on the image, there are
cases where the overall tone of an image
changes somewhat as colors which are not
similar and highlights change.
