Digital Photo Professional Version 3.6 (Version 3.5 shown above) is an image processing program that enables high-speed RAW image processing, high-speed previewing for real-time image adjustment and support for sRGB, Adobe RGB, Apple RGB, Colormatch RGB and Wide Gamut RGB color spaces. Because it's CMS (Color Management System) compatible, Digital Photo Professional allows for easy image layout and printing in Adobe RGB and in conjunction with Easy-PhotoPrint and PictBridge printers. It also features the Dust Delete Data Detection tool for cleaner images.

EOS Utility Version 2.6 for Macintosh or Windows handles the connection between the camera and computer, whenever they're connected via USB. It allows remote controlled shooting from the computer, handles downloading of images from the camera to the computer, and allows seamless linking to either Canon's ZoomBrowser/ImageBrowser or Digital Photo Professional software once images have been copied to the hard drive. Furthermore, it's used to upload settings back into a USB-connected camera.

ZoomBrowser EX Version 6.3 for Windows and ImageBrowser (Version 6.2) for Mac OS X are the easy, user-friendly options for viewing and editing of JPEG and even RAW image files. Both allow viewing of numerous types of images including finished TIFF and BMP files. Both also have a variety of search options for finding images, allow re-naming of single images or batches of files, and offer a variety of options for printing without using a separate image-editing program. RAW files are processed using the Digital Photo Professional software.

Picture Style Editor Version 1.5 is software that allows you to create custom Picture Style files. To create a Picture Style file, you will open up a RAW image then adjust the image characteristics based on one of the existing Picture Style settings (Standard, Portrait, Landscape, Neutral or Faithful), except for the Monochrome setting. Your new Picture Style setting can then be stored in the T1i using the EOS Utility, or used in the Digital Photo Professional application.

As seen with many of the digital cameras tested recently, I did not have to install software at all to access my photos on the T1i. XP Pro (SP2) correctly identified the camera and offered a list of programs I could use to import our photos.
