Looks like version 3.11.10 of Canon DPP introduced HDR of three images. Here is the manual (see p.81 for the HDR feature) and here is a review of the feature. If you decide to look elsewhere for HDR software, then this page reviews five free packages. According to them on the easy but less powerful side there is Picturenaut, and on the harder but more ...


In theory the camera manufacturer can make the processing exactly the same or completely different since they have full control over what goes into the camera and the raw processor. It's both "common knowledge" and "common sense" that the in-camera an stand alone raw convertor from the same company will produce the same results, except for the converter ...


You can't. Lightroom (LR) ignores the in camera settings that were in effect at the time the photo was taken and applies its own preset or auto settings. I'm a Canon shooter. When I first open a Canon raw .cr2 file with Canon's in-house raw convertor, Digital Photo Professional (DPP), the application applies the in-camera settings that were active at the ...


In theory it should be possible to make RAW-conversion, using the brand's own conversion tool, exactly match the in-camera JPEG. In real life you can get very close but not excactly the same. RAW-conversion software may be of different update version, or in-camera conversion process is using such gimmicks that you can't reproduce by yourself even if the ...


Found the issue: Had to set the Camera Calibration Profile (Develop tab) to Camera Standard (set as default for all newly imported raw images). Now the images in Lightroom look like the images in Digital Photo Professional.


What OS are you running? If your images are displayed correctly in DPP, then the orientation flag is set correctly. But if they do not display correctly in Image Viewer in Vista/Win7, that is because the orientation info isn't used by Windows prior to Windows 8


According to Canon, Digital Photo Professional writes additional information for the DLO processing to the RAW image; the result is that the RAW image file will increase in size, often significantly. It saves not only the new corrected image in RAW format but also the original image into the file - or at least the steps taken to get from the original ...


If you save your JPEG files at high quality settings and in the same resolution as the RAW files, you should not notice any additional blurring when converting and saving them. After all, what you are viewing on your screen when you are working with RAW files is an 8-bit conversion of the RAW file that is very similar to a JPEG. It sounds like your Image ...


It appears your installation of Digital Photo Professional was corrupted in some way. When you downloaded the update it reinstalled the latest version of the program and then applied your preferred settings that were stored in a separate file.


You simply got misguided advice. It sounds like the person you were talking to didn't realize that Aperture is RAW conversion software. The issue of color demosaicing (with your camera, as with most, it's not really layers, but rather side-by-side in a Bayer pattern) would hold if you were going to a traditional raster editor like Photoshop or Gimp, but if ...


Take a sample of white shirt - same area in each case - and look at the RGB histograms. The PDPP photo has substantially different white balance - red level is well down compared with GB, whereas in Lightroom they are much more balanced.
