7.95 (PDF download)

Your EOS camera comes with the option to shoot different files types – RAW and JPEG. RAW files have to be processed and Canon provides a powerful software tool in the box with your EOS camera to do this: Digital Photo Professional (DPP). Don’t overlook this bit of kit just because it’s free – it’s a comprehensive software package which gives you a great deal of both freedom and control over your finished images.

Getting to grips with new software is often a steep learning curve however. So, if you’re considering making the move to shooting RAW files on your Canon DSLR, then here’s a new eBook from Nina Bailey to hold your hand along the way and get you up to speed quickly with DPP and to help you understand RAW workflow.

The Beginner’s Guide to DPP and RAW workflow assumes little or no knowledge of RAW processing and is an in-depth guide to navigating round the program and using it to best effect to process and correct your RAW files. Written specifically for version 3 of DPP, this eBook is a clear, user-friendly guide to the software, its features and benefits.

In addition to exploring the program itself, Nina also explains the differences between RAW and JPEG formats, RAW file workflow and filing and backing up your images. You’ll also learn about what DPP can – and cannot – process in terms of corrections and how to use the tools both creatively and successfully for your images.

130 pages long.


This eBook concentrates on DPP version 3. A separate title written specifically for version 4 is available here
