In DPP choose Convert and Save under file menu. Select HPEG file type and you can choise image size. You can download a manual for DPP from Canon site. There are also tutorials at Canon Digital Learning Center website.

Never used that selection before.  Learn something every day.


The advantage of Convert & Save over Batch Process is that C&S allows you to overwrite an existing JPEG file of the same name, while BP doesn't.

 

BP also has the very annoying property of not allowing you to set the width or height for all files being converted. The width you set for the first file becomes the long dimension for all subsequent files. It would be nice to have "long dimension" as an option, but it's not always what you want.


I have since gone into DPP 4.6.10.0 to experiment with that option.  It doesn't exist in my installation.


What option? With respect to conversions to JPEG, 4.6.10.0 behaves exactly like its predecessors. At least as far as I've been able to tell.

What option?  When you select "Convert & Save", you can select a file type.  That option.  I can choose 8-bit or 16 bit JPEGs or TIFFs.  That's it.

That's all folks.

OK, whatever. I don't still have access to a computer with an earlier version of DPP 4 than the latest one, so I can't prove it. But I'm sure that option has always been there. For a fact it's in 3.15.0.0.

Re: New member needs help

My 100-400 ll USM is on the way. I want a clear filter for it and my other lens.....58mm and 77mm. The Canon store is out and will not have them for severeal weeks. Should I wait or buy elsewhere? Brand? Details? Thanks.

Re: New member needs help

I am a big "use a protecto filter guy" but I would not and did not put a filter on the 100-400mm.  Barring that advice, the choice is one of the B+W filters.  For example the B+W 77mm XS-Pro Clear MRC-Nano 007 Filter if you must.  It is around $60 bucks.  Remember they unscrew off as easily as the screw on if the shot warrants it.

 

I don't have a filter on my big Siggy 150-600mm S either.

A lot of Canon stuff. Along with, a lot of other stuff.

I ordered the 100-400 ll USM from the Canon store on 15 Mar. It has not yet shipped. Should I have bought the the lens with other stuff in a bundle from Amazon for the same price and had it in 2 days?

Re: New member needs help

If the price was the same then the answers obvious. 

 

If Canon was less expensive it depends if not having it has a lost opportunity cost.  Bummer if you missed a shot of Bigfoot😊

The weekend is in the way.  Hopefully, you should be able to track the package at near real time.  Holidays and weekends aside, in my experience, the Canon Online store always delivers in less than a week.   They are not as fast as my favorite NYC superstore, but the superstore warehouse is about 30 miles away from my house.  Canon will want a delivery signature for something as costly as that lens.  I typically pick up those types of packages at the local UPS store.  I have had some packages report as not yet shipped, while UPS is ringing my bell with the package.

 

BTW, I would never buy anything more valuable than a used paperback novel from Amazon.  I don't buy used paperback novels.  Amazon means well, but they simply cannot keep up with the integrity of all of their vendors.  Just as soon as they boot one vendor off, the vendor is back again under a new name.  I feel the same way about eBay.  I have listened to too many horror stories.  I know and have relatives who swear by them both.  No, thank-you.  I'll stick to ordering direclty from Canon or B&H.

Re: New member needs help

I ordered the lens from the canon store on the 15th. It is now the 21st. I made two calls but have not yet received notice that the lens has been shipped. That is not acceptable. I will buy elsewhere from now on. I could have bought it at Digital Goja and had it the same day if willing to make the drive or two days later with free shipping. They are a canon authorized dealer.

I can make it very easy, never ever buy any phoyographic package from Amazon.  I have not seen one yet that was not junk.
