Thread: Settings for Canon DPP S/W

    Default Settings for Canon DPP S/W

    Can I know what settings you guys use when converting RAW to JPEG in DPP? I seem to suffer quite a bit of degradation in photo quality after I convert.. Here's some screenshots of the settings I'm using.. Would appreciate any advice on whether I should change any of my settings to get a "sharper" JPEG output picture..

    Have you tried to extract to Tiff instead to compare ?

    Jpg is a lossy compression image and there is some loss in quality thus does not give a "sharper" JPEG unless you use software like PS to sharpen it.

    I always extract to TIFF for pro-processing, only convert to JPG at the final stage before sending for print / Web.

    Just my personal view

    By the way, whenever you resize the image, the image will become a litter blur, thus need to do some sharpening to it (but don't sharpening too much hor).

    And always do sharpening as the final last step.

    output res.. 1200dpi...

    to retain good resolution.. convert to tiff @ 300dpi is more then enough.. if you need more detail sharpness, use software.......
