Canon's Digital Photo Professional (DPP) program

of expensive, stand-alone and plug-in RAW image processing programs, DPP streamlines
professional photographers' workflow, providing time and labor saving options such as
instantaneous RAW image adjustment display and support for .CR2 and RAW .TIF as well as
Exif TIFF and JPEG formats.
DPP is compatible with multiple color space
settings including sRGB, Adobe RGB and Wide Gamut RGB as well as Color Management
Settings using ICC profiles.
Among the array of processing options provided by DPP are
color channels, tone curves, exposure compensation, white balance, dynamic range,
brightness, contrast, color saturation, ICC Profile embedding and assignment of monitor
profiles. Another new feature sure to be embraced by DPP users is the program's ability
to allow continuous editing while batches of previously adjusted RAW files are rendered
and saved in the background.
Among the numerous features DPP provides is the capability
to save multiple adjustments to an image as a "recipe" that can be reloaded and used
again or applied to other images. In comparison mode, original and edited images can be
compared side by side or within a single split image.
File save options are: Exif-TIFF 8bit, TIFF 16bit or Exif-JPEG with selectable
image quality (scale of 1 to 10) and sharpness.
