I sharpen my photos post processing, but I have to convert them all from (3) to (0) sharpness in DPP before I convert them to TIFF for Photoshop (I have 7.7 which doesn't support RAW). Converting them isn't a huge deal but converting every photo every time is kind of annoying. Can I tell the camera not to sharpen RAW images?

You don't say what camera you have, but you should be able to change the default sharpness settings.

In your menu you will have some Picture style choices, select the one you are using, and then you can edit the settings, it should be in your manual.

Why don't you want the DPP sharpening applied?

Thank you artyman!!
I don't want the DPP sharpening applied because I re-size the image to a desirable size and then sharpen in Photoshop as a TIFF. If I don't eliminate the DPP sharpening, my method sharpens twice. Plus I just prefer unsharp mask to a 1-10 slider. There are exceptions. If I am batch processing 500 snapshots and really don't care about the fine details, I'll set sharpness to "6" and forget Photoshop all together. If I am posting 700x480 to Facebook as art, or if I am going to take the images to the print shop, I'm going for the most IQ I can pull.

The latest DPP has unsharp mask as an option as well as the slider.

That's fine - I asked because a lot of people do a minor amount of default sharpening in their RAW converter, then final output sharpening in their editing software.

I have a 50D, shoot in RAW and use DPP for aquiring, tweaking and converting my images..

I always have my camera set to 3 sharpening and DPP defaults to this.. I find this is enough for my images but at times I do bump up the sharpness a bit..

The nice thing about shooting RAW with the 50D is that the images can handle quite a bit of sharpening in DPP without any nasty sharpening artifacts being evident..

What I don't understand is why the default sharpness for "standard" and "landscape" modes on my 400D are set to a fairly low setting like 3 or 4 .... I can't understand why it's not defaulted to the maximum. I've compared images taken direct from the camera versus those with increased sharpness (in DPP) and the sharper ones look so much better.
I can understand someone wanting the "portrait" mode to have less sharpness, but I don't understand this for "standard" and "landscape" .... does anyone know why or have a suggestion why this is?

Well, follow post #4 by "artyman" and you can set them all to whatever you want. :) I wanted zero sharpness and now I have it, but you can set any of the modes to whatever you want.
