HI,

I am having trouble with DPP.

I make the setting I want to the RAW file and then "convert & Save" as a JPEG, but the JPEG does not look like the RAW file I worked on? Quite noticeable wrt any added sharpness...it seems to disappear whensaving as a JPEG?

Am I missing something in DPP that I should be doing?

Here is an example, it was very sharp in DPP but now not very sharp.

Thanks Tony

The only way you can tell is by saving a full-size jpeg and then comparing it with the Raw at the same zoom levels in DPP. Otherwise what your are seeing, here for example, is a large file that has been shrunken/compressed for viewing in a Web browser or other jpeg Image Viewer. You will never see the same "sharpness" as in a good Raw viewr because most of that sharpness has been obliterated by the compression. A full-size jpeg if zoomed to 100$ view will show the low-level of sharpening that DPP has applied.

A couple approaches to this: in DPP, when you are ready to Convert/Save to a smaller size, apply a fresh round of sharpening first.

Or, take a possibly more effective route and convert and resize to the smaller size, preferrably as a tiff or at least as a High Quality jpeg, and then at the viewing size for your needs (for the Web it will be viewing the smaller size at 100%) apply an appropriate amount of sharpening in the sSRGB tab, then convert and save for use. This should get you closer.
