Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi SLR Review
Canon RAW Software
Canon is shipping Digital Photo Professional version 2.2 with the Rebel XTi.
Compatible with both Mac OS X and Windows XP operating systems formats, the Digital Photo Pro
software assists users with everything from image transfer and viewing, image enhancement and
editing, RGB image editing functions, image noise reduction, viewing, processing and editing of
RAW images, Direct Print functions and Canon's new Dust Delete Data functions.
Canon's Digital Photo Professional (DPP) program
offers users high-speed processing of RAW images. Rivaling and even surpassing features
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.
DPP 2.2's Stamp tool has a new feature, Apply Dust Delete Data, that works in concert
with the XTi's Dust Delete Data function. It can work with RAW or JPEG images to which
dust delete data has been appended. A dust-deleted RAW image must be saved as a TIF or JPG.
File save options are: Exif-TIFF 8bit, TIFF 16bit or Exif-JPEG with selectable image quality (scale of 1 to 10) and sharpness.
