Hello, all. I seem to be having some trouble with Digital Photo Professional when batch processing RAW files. I am editing the pictures in RAW, then when I batch process them, the resulting JPEGs don's match the RAW files. There are some details that are not being transferred, such as color and sharpness. When comparing the photos side by side you can see real differences. Why is this happening? I am saving the RAW image before batch processing, so I don't know why the JPEG is missing some of the changes to the image. Thanks in advance for any help.


Cheers,
Transient W.A.S.P.

What version of DPP are you using? And, what process are you using to select and apply adjustments to the Raw images?

I don't use the batch tools much, but maybe I can help.

The 'File > Batch process' command only converts and saves a selected group of images at their respective momentary stage of development.

If you want to re-apply the edits performed on one image onto a group of other images, you must either use the 'Copy recipe - Paste recipe' commands (Right click on image) or, in the thumbnail view, select the pictures you want to batch-edit and then invoke the tool palette (Ctrl T) to edit all the selected pictures simultaneously. When done, you would 'File > Batch process' to save them all in one sweep.

Thank you for the info. I ran the batch process tool after I finished editing each RAW file, but it didn't seem to capture the changes made. But, maybe the copy recipe solution is the answer.

Version 3.13.50. I am opening the RAW files, editing them with the DPP tool palette, then running the batch process to convert them to JPEGs.

Canon DPP. The RAW and JPEG are right next to each other and you can see the difference.

What quality level are you using for the JPEG conversion?

Are you saving the jpeg files in sRGB?

concerning sharpening, you have to compare at 100% view in DPP because in other views DPP applies some extra-sharpening that will not appear in the final image.
Concerning the colors, have you checked the "Embed ICC profile" checkbox ?

There were a lot of complaints about DPP looking so great in quick check - full screen and no matter what you did using DPP or PS it couldn't be matched. I was one of them. I found this one day on another site about 7 years ago.

I observed this many years ago when there was a rash of people complaining that their exported jpgs didn't look as good as they did in DPP. DPP's downsizing algorithm for 'fit to screen' display is very good - contrasty which creates the illusion of sharpness - while other applications sacrificed quality for speed. And so the stock reply to all those complaints became, "Compare at 100%."

I don't use DPP for sharpening, I would rather my sharpening be the very last thing I do to an image after doing all other post tweaks, like NR, contrast, etc. I usually keep DPP (and in-camera settings) down a bit, then do the sharpening in photoshop as one of the final steps.

Yeah I did that for years as well. Then I got into event photography and it was a nightmare. No matter how many times I tried to set up scripts, etc never went well for mass edits. That is why I slowly transitioned to Adobe when I got LR.

I guess you make a good point. DPP is sharpening before downsizing. I was still pretty impressed with the results. I haven't tried converting using DPP for years but since getting my 5D4 I started to goof around with it a bit more. I use it if I don't feel like converting to a DNG for CS6.
