I thought it was DPP but counldn't find anything in there for showing the focus points on a picture. Anyone knows which software does this? I'm trying to find if I'm missing my target or if I'm having focus issues.
Thanks

ZoomBrowser, which is a free software that came with your camera.

Breezebrowser also shows the focus points.

Whichever program one chooses this should one of the first steps in determining why your shot didn't come out focus wise the way you had intended. You can actually learn allot from this.

Breezebrowser Pro carries a price tag of 70.00USD. It would be worthwhile to me at even a higher price. This program does so much, I use it in one fashion or another almost every day. I don't however, use it for RAW conversions anymore. That is why I bought it in the first place shortly after getting into digital but have since moved on to something else for that part of my workflow.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

There is an icon to turn them on. It looks similar to your viewfinder.

Yup ZB. I haven't used it in a while. Make sure you double click on an image to bring up the viewer. Then the icon should be near the top.

No that is fine. What does matter is that you have to select an image and open up the editor screen (? I think ).

I guess I'll go try Breezebrowser because I can't find anything in ZB for it.

I will check when I get home in an hour or so and post a screen shot for you.

Here you go. Make sure you click on an image and choose view image at the top. This brings up the viewer window for the image. Then select the icon highlighted below:

I see what your talking about and I appreciate the time you've spent to help me, but When I open the same thing in ZB, the button you are selecting is dark on mine and I can't access that. I've made sure everything in preferences was selected. And I downloaded Breezebrowser and it shows the same pic as yours but doesn't show me the "active" focus point. I'll continue to check, I'm sure I'm just overlooking something simple.

EOS Viewer Utility shows the focus points.

This information won't be available for some images for many reasons...

1. Manual Focus was used
2. Editing was done and the editor doesn't retain EXIF Maker Notes
3. A RAW converter was used which strips this info (DPP is guilty)

Try another JPG or CR2 which is straight out of the camera.
