Introduction
Introduction
Digital Photo Professional (hereinafter, “DPP”) is high-performance RAW
image viewing, processing 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 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 an image in DPP, the image is instantly 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 edits 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 edited
in DPP is called a “Recipe”.

What is RAW Development?
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. And
as for the RAW image, too, you cannot view it as an image on your
computer unless you perform subsequent image signal processing.
Therefore, even though it is digital, this processing is called
“development” and with EOS DIGITAL is performed using DPP.
With DPP, you can view, edit and print RAW images without having to be
particularly conscious of the development processing.

Introduction
Adjusting Dynamic Range
The dynamic range (width of gradation expression) from dark points to
bright points in an image can be adjusted. The more the shadow point is
towards the right, the more the gradation of dark points in the image
disappears and the image becomes darker. The more the highlight point
is towards the left, the more the gradation of bright points in the image
disappears and the image becomes brighter.
The narrower the space between shadow point and highlight point
becomes, the narrower the gradation from bright points to dark points of
an image becomes.

General Settings
Basic preferences such as specifying the folder that opens when DPP is
started, the image quality of displayed RAW images/image quality of
RAW images when converted and saved, and whether noise reduction
is enabled or disabled can be specified.
O Operating mode
You can select from three types of combination of image quality when a
RAW image is displayed and when a RAW image is converted to a
JPEG or TIFF image and saved (p.29, p.59).
[Quality priority]
Since noise (false color, luminance noise, chrominance noise)
undergoes reduction processing when a RAW image is displayed or
when an image is converted and saved, image quality is high. However,
it takes more time to display an image or convert and save an image.
[Standard]
Because noise (false color, luminance noise, chrominance noise) does
not undergo reduction processing in the display of a RAW image, the
speed at which an image is displayed is improved when compared to
[Quality priority]. When an image is converted and saved, noise
reduction processing is performed as in [Quality priority].
[Speed priority]
Noise (false color, luminance noise, chrominance noise) does not
undergo reduction processing when a RAW image is displayed and
when an image is converted and saved. For this reason, the speed at
which an image is displayed and the speed at which an image is
converted and saved increases.

Utilizing Adjusted Content (Recipe Data)
Any editing content (image processing conditions information) adjusted
with the tool palette can be saved as a separate file from the image and
loaded and applied to another image, or be copied and applied to
another image. In DPP, editing data is referred to as a “recipe” (a file
with .vrd as the extension).
You can edit images efficiently by selecting and adjusting one image
from large numbers of images shot with the same light source and batch
applying the adjustment results to a large number of images.
Recipe data also includes content that has been edited with the
[RGB image adjustment] tool palette. However, adjustments in the
[RAW image adjustment] tool palette that can only be adjusted 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 edit JPEG and TIFF images the same as with RAW
images using the [RGB image adjustment] tool palette.
Editing performed with DPP does not adjust an image directly, but
adjusts the image by attaching and changing “image processing
conditions information” (recipe data).
Therefore, you can edit and the “original image data” remains
unaffected.
With DPP, you can make the following adjustments to a JPEG or TIFF
image using the [RGB image adjustment] tool palette.

JPEG and TIFF images edited in DPP can be saved following the
procedures below.
O If you add a recipe to an image and save (p.76), the original JPEG or
TIFF image is saved without any deterioration.
O If you save as a separate image (p.29, p.59), the image is saved as a
separate JPEG or TIFF image which reflects the results of
adjustment. In this case, the image deteriorates to some extent when
being edited/saved, the same as with ordinary image editing software.

Editing in the [RGB image adjustment] tool palette can also be
performed on RAW images. However, the following functions are
also available on the [Raw image adjustment] tool palette, so when
adjusting RAW images, we recommend you use the [RAW image
adjustment] tool palette and refer to the pages below to adjust.

Introduction
Automatically Adjusting Brightness and Color (Tone Curve Assist)
[Brightness] and [Color] are automatically adjusted to create a desirable
standard image. The degree of automatic adjustment can be selected
from [Standard] or [High].
Click the desired automatic adjustment button.
Reverts the tone curve to
the original settings.
High
Standard
O If you click the [
] button, the tone curve as well as the [Color
tone] and [Color saturation] of the [RGB image adjustment] tool
palette revert to the default settings. Take care when adjusting the
[Color tone] and [Color saturation] individually.
O Automatic adjustment (tone curve assist) is a function for
adjusting the brightness and color by automatically adjusting the
tone curve (brightness and color saturation of an image before
and after adjustment in the form of a graph) of an image. The
adjustment result 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
O In the main window, you can also adjust the tone curve by
selecting the [Adjustment] menu ` [Tone Curve Assist - Standard]
or [Tone Curve Assist - High].

Re-Editing an Image
Erasing Unwanted Parts of an Image (Copy Stamp Function)
You can correct an image by pasting a section copied from another part
of the image to an unwanted part of the image. The corrected image
becomes a corrected image by converting to a JPEG or TIFF image and
saving (p.29).
Follow steps 1 to 3 in “Manually Erasing Dust (Repair
Function)” (p.73).

2 Specify the section to be copied.
Since only the image processing conditions of an edited JPEG or TIFF
image is changed and displayed, the original image data itself remains
unaffected in its original condition. For that reason, you can cancel all
adjustments in an image and restore it to the last saved condition or to
the image that you originally shot.
1 Select the image that is to be re-edited.
2 Select the [Adjustment] menu ` desired item.
O Click the [Select Copy Source] button and then click on the
section that is to be the copy source.
O To change the section that is to be the copy source, perform the
operation above again.
O You can also specify the section to be copied by clicking on the
section to be copied while holding down the <Alt> key.
O To fix the position of the copy source, check mark the [Fix Copy

Troubleshooting
If DPP is not operating correctly, refer to the items below.
Installation could not be completed correctly
O You cannot install the software if a user setting other than [Computer
administrator] privilege or [Administrator] privilege is selected. Select
the [Computer administrator] privilege in Windows XP or the
[Administrator] privilege user setting in Windows 2000. For detailed
information on selecting the user setting, refer to the computer’s
instruction manual.
DPP does not work
O DPP does not operate correctly on a computer if its system
requirements does not meet. Use DPP on a computer with compatible
system requirements (p.3).
O 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). Exit
any applications other than DPP.
Images do not display properly
O 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 and 2.21 compatible images and TIFF images other than Exif
compatible images may not display properly (p.3).
O A trimmed range cannot be checked other than in the trimming
window (p.26, p.70).
Either check the image in the trimming window or convert the image
and save it as a JPEG or TIFF image (p.29, p.59).
O A dust-erased image cannot be checked other than in the copy stamp
window (p.43, p.44, p.46, p.72, p.73, p.75).
Either check the image in the copy stamp window or convert the
image and save it as a JPEG or TIFF image (p.29, p.59).
Introduction
An image could not be adjusted
O The RAW image adjustment function (p.10) cannot be used on JPEG
and TIFF images. Adjust these images with the RGB image
adjustment function (p.63).
O PowerShot Pro1 RAW images cannot be adjusted with the RAW
image adjustment function. Adjust these images with the RGB image
adjustment function (p.63).

A recipe could not be pasted (applied) to another image
Advanced
Operation
O You cannot paste (apply) rotation (p.8, p.18, p.80, p.84, p.85),
trimming (p.26, p.70), dust erasure (copy stamp) (p.43, p.44, p.46,
p.72, p.73, p.75) 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.
O The editing content of RAW images that has been adjusted with the
RAW image adjustment function cannot be applied to JPEG images
(p.56).
Color appears weak in the image when view with
other software
O A RAW image which has a color space other than sRGB set (p.46,
p.53) and is then converted and saved as a JPEG or TIFF images 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 in printed images are incorrect
O 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.53, p.54) and a profile for a
printer is set up correctly, the color of a printed photograph and the
color of an image on screen can be more closely matched. Printing
with a Canon printer (p.30, p.48, p.49) automatically sets up printer
profiles, so you only need to set the color of the monitor to bring the
colors closer together.
O When printing with 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.31).
O Where the printer driver is set to perform adjustment of images,
printing colors of a picture does not approximate the colors on screen
even when a printer profile is set. Set the driver not to perform
adjustment of images.
O Exit any applications before uninstalling the software.
O Log in under [Computer administrator]/[Administrator] privileges when
uninstalling the software.
O To prevent computer malfunctions, always restart your computer after
you have uninstalled the software. Re-installing the software without
first restarting your computer is particularly likely to result in computer
malfunctions.

Glossary
RAW image
bit number
EOS DIGITAL camera RAW images are recorded in an uncompressed
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 general 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 of even 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
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”.
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
you view on a monitor and the color of an image you have 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
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.

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.

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 CMYK simulation profile is a profile for simulating colors in a CMYK
environment on printers 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 degree of color 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.
