RAW Images
RAW Images
A RAW image is image data that has recorded output data of imaging
sensor. As image processing is not performed 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”.
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. 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”.
Introduction/
Contents
Advantages of a RAW Image
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. Therefore, it is the
perfect data for users who want to get creative with the images after
shooting, as you do not have to worry about image deterioration.
In DPP, the “Image processing conditions information” that can be
adjusted is called a “Recipe” (p.96).

When RAW Development is to be 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 being
particularly conscious of the development processing.

In DPP, all the adjustments (image processing conditions information)

“recipe” (p.97), or can be saved, downloaded and applied to other
images as a separate recipe file (extension “.dr4”, p.98). However, a

Editing JPEG and TIFF Images
With DPP, you can adjust JPEG and TIFF images in the same way as
RAW images using the tool palettes below.
• Tone Adjustment tool palette
• Color Adjustment tool palette
• Detailed Adjustment tool palette
• Trimming/Angle Adjustment tool palette
• Partial Adjustment tool palette
• Dust Delete/Copy Stamp tool palette
• Settings tool palette
Because adjustments made with these tool palettes (the recipe) only
change the image processing conditions, the “original image data itself”
remains unaffected. Consequently, there is none of the image
deterioration that normally accompanies editing and you can readjust
your image any number of times.

Tool Palettes
Introduction/

With DPP, you can adjust images with the tool palettes by switching
between various tool palette windows according to your editing
requirements. Since adjustments made with the tool palettes only
change the image processing conditions, the “original image data itself”
remains unaffected. As there is no image deterioration that normally
accompanies editing, you can readjust your image any number of times.
The various functions of the tool palettes are explained in more detail
under the respective topics.
 Basic Adjustment tool palette
Makes basic adjustments to a RAW image (p.48).
 Tone Adjustment tool palette
Adjusts the tone curve and applies the Auto Lighting Optimizer (p.61).
 Color Adjustment tool palette

Using the different tool palettes
We recommend that you use the Basic Adjustment tool palette to make
adjustments to RAW images. However, if you find that the Basic
Adjustment tool palette does not offer a sufficient range of adjustments,
or if you want to use specific functions that are only available in the Tone
Adjustment tool palette (p.61), completing initial adjustments with the
Basic Adjustment tool palette and then using the Tone Adjustment tool
palette to make just the minimum of adjustments needed is
recommended.
For noise reduction (p.68) and lens aberration correction (p.74), you
should first complete necessary adjustments in the Basic Adjustment
and Tone Adjustment tool palettes, and then adjust with the Detailed
Adjustment tool palette (p.68) and Lens Correction tool palette (p.73).
 You can click the [
] button at the bottom right of the main window
to show/hide [Tool palette].

 Check the results of corrections to peripheral illumination or
distortions in the full view.
 Check the results of corrections to chromatic aberration and color
blur by clicking the area on the image you want to check and
then checking the enlargement display section in the top of the
window. You can choose from 4 display scales between 1:1 and
1:4 for the enlargement display.
 You can lessen the degree of correction by moving the slider to
the left.
 You can respectively correct red chromatic aberration with the [R]
slider of the [Chromatic aberration] or blue chromatic aberration
with the [B] slider.
 To correct distortion aberration of images shot with a fisheye lens
(EF8–15mm f/4L USM Fisheye or EF15mm f/2.8 Fisheye), four
effects can be selected from the [Effect] list box in addition to
[Shot settings] normally used for distortion correction.
The level of an effect can be adjusted with the adjustment slider
located below [Distortion].
For detailed information on each effect, see “Effects of Distortion
Correction for Fisheye Lenses” (p.75).
 For images shot with EF8–15mm f/4L USM Fisheye, a fine-tune
slider is also displayed when you select [Emphasize Linearity]
from the [Effect] list box.
Adjust the amount of correction for distortion aberration with the
adjustment slider, and then adjust with the fine-tune slider if more
adjustment is required.
 When the list box for selecting an extender is displayed, select
the extender attached at the time of shooting from the list box.
 [Diffraction correction] corrects only those images shot with a
camera with a diffraction correction function. By checkmarking
this option, images are corrected according to the camera's
diffraction correction function. Note that this function cannot be
used at the same time as the Digital Lens Optimizer.
 The adjustment range of distortion correction is either [0 to +100]
or [–20 to +120], depending on the camera model that was used
for shooting. The adjustment range for images shot with a
fisheye lens mounted is [0 to +100] regardless of the camera
model that was used.

Effects of Distortion Correction for Fisheye
Lenses
 Shot settings
By selecting this option, only the aberration corrections will be
performed to correct the optical distortions.
 Emphasize Distance
This converts the image to an “equidistant projection” style image.
This projection method preserves distance relationships.
Equidistant projection displays a distance in the same distance
anywhere from the center to the periphery. In particular, when
shooting a celestial body such as the celestial sphere, same heights
above the horizon(declination) are captured at the same heights. This
method is therefore used in such photography as celestial
photography (star maps, solar path diagrams, etc.).

 Emphasize Linearity
This converts the image to a “central projection” style image. This
projection method is employed for general lenses.
Since central projection displays straight lines as straight lines, a
wide-view panoramic image can be obtained by selecting this option.
However, the periphery is stretched, resulting in decreased resolution.
Processing
Large Numbers
of RAW Images
 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.

 Emphasize Center
This converts the image to an “orthographic 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.
Shooting Distance Information Slider
 When correcting RAW images and 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.
 When correcting RAW images shot with the cameras in the table below,
it is set automatically to the right end at infinity position. You can then
minutely adjust the distance by operating the slider while looking at the
screen if the shooting distance is not infinite.

Correcting Multiple Images at a Time
You can apply the same corrections to several images by first selecting
multiple images in the main window, and then performing correction
procedures (p.74).
Also, you can apply same corrections by copying the recipe of the
corrected image and pasting it onto the multiple images (p.97).
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.68). 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.69).
 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.55) and/or the color saturation (p.67) 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.
The periphery of the image may be truncated when [Distortion]
correction is made.
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.
These optical phenomena cannot be corrected under Lens aberration
correction (p.73). Correction is achieved using the designed value of
each lens. You can correct these optical phenomena in RAW images
which have been shot with 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.
Note that even though the EOS 20D/EOS 20Da, EOS 10D, EOS D2000,
EOS D30, EOS D60, EOS 350D, and EOS 300D are EOS cameras
supporting the Digital Photo Professional, they are not compatible with

 The RAW image is converted to a JPEG or TIFF image which is
then saved as a new image in the specified save destination.
To save the developing/editing results for the version you are
currently using
DPP’s RAW image development processing technology is continually
being improved upon so that you can perform the latest image
processing more appropriately.
Meaning that, between two different versions of DPP, processing results
may differ very slightly even if with the same RAW image data, or the
results of significant editing of RAW image data with an attached recipe
may be different.
When you want to save the developing or editing results of the version
you are currently using as it is, saving the image as a separate file (p.93)
is recommended.
 By saving as a separate JPEG or TIFF image as explained
above, some image deterioration that accompanies editing/saving
occurs as when editing with general image editing software.
 By saving as explained above, a trimmed image (p.70) or dusterased image (p.85 to p.89) actually becomes a trimmed image
or dust-erased image.
 You can batch convert and save multiple images (p.134).

For this reason, you can undo any adjustments saved (p.93) to the

Using the Dual Pixel RAW Optimizer
By setting the Dual Pixel RAW function on the camera compatible with
the function before shooting RAW images, images are recorded as
“special RAW images (Dual Pixel RAW images)” with dual pixel
information appended from the imaging sensor. This is called Dual Pixel
RAW shooting. Using this function, the [Dual Pixel RAW Optimizer], with
Dual Pixel RAW images, you can make use of the Dual Pixel data
recorded with the Dual Pixel RAW image for microadjustment of the
position of maximum sharpness and resolution using the depth
information contained within the file, repositioning the viewpoint or
foreground bokeh for a more pleasing result, and reducing the
appearance of ghosting in images.
Cautions for Dual Pixel RAW shooting
Note the following when shooting in Dual Pixel RAW.
 Common to all functions
• Effects are most easily gained when the lens aperture value is
f/5.6 or lower.
• Effects may be different between shooting in vertical orientation
and horizontal orientation.
• It is recommended that the ISO speed be ISO 1600 or lower.
 Only for “Microadjustment of the position of maximum sharpness
and resolution using the depth information contained within the
Dual Pixel RAW file”
• It is recommended that the lens focal length be at least 50 mm.
• It is recommended that this function be used when the camera
is at a distance from the subject.*
* Use the following as a guide to subject distances according to
focal length.
When the lens focal length is 50 mm, the subject distance
should be approx. 1 m - 10 m / 3.3 ft. - 32.8 ft.
When the lens focal length is 100 mm, the subject distance
should be approx. 2 m - 20 m / 6.6 ft. - 65.6 ft.
When the lens focal length is 200 mm, the subject distance
should be approx. 4 m - 40 m / 13.1 ft. - 131.2 ft.

Using Depth Compositing
Depth compositing generates a single image from several images that is
in focus over a wide area. This function combines images with the Depth
Compositing tool, and outputs the combined result as a depth composite
image. It is then possible to also correct the output image using the
Depth Compositing Editing tool.
This function can also be used with images shot without using focus
bracketing on the camera.

 A source image folder (folder name: DPP_DC_...) is output in the

The source image folder is used to correct the depth composite

 [Auto brightness adjustment] suppresses any change in
brightness between images used for depth compositing with
automatic correction when brightnesses are slightly different.
You can display this function as a function button in the main
window’s toolbar (p.125).
Cautions when shooting images for depth
compositing
 After performing depth compositing, the combined result may
have a narrower angle of view than when images were shot.
When shooting with focus bracketing, shooting with a wider angle
of view is recommended. After depth compositing, you can crop
the image if necessary.
 For best results, set the aperture value in a range of f/5.6–11
before shooting.
 Be sure to use a tripod and lock the camera firmly in place before
shooting.
 Repeating patterns such as lattice patterns and stripe patterns, or
images where the entire screen is flat and lacking contrast may
not be combinable.
 When shooting multiple images, start by focusing on the image
nearest to you and work progressively farther away.
 When shooting multiple images, images where the focus differs
largely may result in a combined image with uneven focus or that
may not be combinable.
 Depth compositing assumes that images of still subjects are
being combined. Images shot of moving subjects may not be
combinable.
 If multiple subjects are in the screen, images may not be
combinable depending on how subjects are arranged, for
example, subjects spaced far apart.
 The lenses below are recommended.

Using the RAW Burst Image Tool
This function can be used with rolls (continuous-shot image files)
captured in RAW burst mode on Canon digital cameras.
A roll is edited, saved, printed, etc. as a single RAW image in DPP,
however, a “representative image”* is selected automatically for this
purpose.
For detailed information on RAW burst mode, refer to the Instruction
Manual included with a RAW burst mode-capable camera.
You can use this tool to do the following:
• Change the representative image in a roll
• Save one image in a roll
• Extract and save any range in a roll
* Representative image: the image displayed in thumbnails, etc.

Saving images with recipe is not possible
In the [Batch settings] window, you cannot perform [Save] or [Save As]
(p.93) to edited RAW images.
To save the developing/editing results for the version you are
currently using
DPP’s RAW image development processing technology is continually
being improved upon so that you can perform the latest image
processing more appropriately.
Meaning that, between two different versions of DPP, processing results
may differ very slightly even if with the same RAW image data, or the
results of significant editing of RAW image data with an attached recipe
may be different.
When you want to save the developing or editing results of the version
you are currently using as it is, converting and saving images as JPEG
or TIFF images is recommended.
Skillful batch saving
 While saving is being performed, you can continue working in
another window
Since the saving function operates independently in the background,
you can continue with an operation in another window such as the
main window or the preview window during the saving process.
 To convert all images and save, do not select an image in the
main window
If you do not perform step 1 and perform step 2 with no image
selected in the main window, all the images displayed in the main
window will be converted and saved.

HDR PQ Mode
System Requirements for HDR PQ Mode
HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and refers to technology that
enables expression of “a wider range of brightness” than with the
conventional range. The conventional range of brightness is referred to
as SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) = “standard brightness range” when
compared to HDR.
The “PQ” in this function’s name, HDR PQ, stands for Perceptual
Quantization and refers to the gamma curve of the input signal for
displaying HDR images. It is capable of brightness up to 10,000 cd/m2
and approximates human visual characteristics. HDR PQ mode in the
Mac edition of DPP is displayed in SDR according to the characteristics
of the display so that RAW images shot on a supported camera
approximate as much as possible display in HDR PQ on an HDR display
compliant with the HDR standard. However, the large difference in
regions that can be rendered between HDR PQ and SDR results in a
different impression of colors and gradations.
You can also edit and save images.
In addition, DPP has the function “Creating HDR (High Dynamic Range)
Images” (p.108). However, this function assumes that display is in
conventional SDR, and combines exposure-bracketed images (HDR
compositing) to achieve image expression that uses a wide range of
gradation from shadows to highlights, and is thus different from HDR PQ
mode.

 You can [Save], [Save As], [Convert and save], or [Batch process]
HEIF images.
 You can save a HEIF image as a JPEG or TIFF image. (It is saved as
an SDR image.)
The image is processed so that it approximates display in HDR PQ on
an HDR display as much as possible. However, the large difference in
regions that can be rendered between HDR PQ and SDR results in a
different impression of colors and gradations.
See “Saving Editing Results” (p.93) for information on how to save an

images, you can print an image, simulating the colors displayed on
screen by setting the profile in DPP.
When you set a profile for printing in DPP, set the color adjustment
function of the printer driver to off. If it is left on, the image may not
be printed in colors close to those displayed on screen.
 Default settings of Work color space
You can select the color space (p.167) to be applied as a default setting
of RAW images from five types. The color space set will be applied as
the color space when a RAW image is converted and saved (p.93,
p.134) or printed (p.127 to p.130).
 If you change the color space, and you restart DPP, the set color
space is applied as the default color space.
 You can check the color space that is set in an image in all windows
except the quick check window.
 If you checkmark [Use shooting color space as work color space],
the color space specified with the camera when the image was shot
will be set as work color space.

Troubleshooting
If DPP is not operating correctly, refer to the subjects below.
Installation can 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
 Depending on the card reader and computer OS used, SDXC cards
may 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.
Images are not displayed properly
 Images that are not supported by DPP are not displayed. (Thumbnail
images are displayed as [?].) 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 to be displayed properly (p.4).
Introduction/
Contents
A recipe could not be pasted (applied) to another image
 Since recipes are not compatible between RAW images and JPEG or
TIFF images, neither can be applied to the other.
Colors are subdued in the image when viewed with
other software
 If a RAW image which has a color space other than sRGB is
converted and saved as a JPEG or TIFF image (p.90, p.159),
the colors will be subdued when viewed in software that is only
compatible with sRGB color space. In such a case, set the RAW
image’s color space to sRGB, convert and save again as a JPEG
or TIFF image, and then view the image.
 The Auto Lighting Optimizer (p.58) is a function compatible with
cameras equipped with the Auto Lighting Optimizer.
Adjustments made with the Auto Lighting Optimizer cannot be
applied to RAW images shot with the cameras not compatible with
this function.
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 the profile for a printer that is to print image is not 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 and the profile for a printer is set up
correctly (p.159), the color of a printed photograph and the color of an
image on screen can be more closely matched. Using a Canon printer
automatically sets up the profiles for the printer, so you only need to
set the color of the monitor to bring the colors closer to each other.
Printing a large number of images in batches
cannot be performed

RAW image
bit number
EOS 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.

Images
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
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.
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
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.
