You're right: there does appear to be a CMYK option in DPP4. I looked for such a thing yesterday and couldn't find it. Good catch!

 

One thing though: You don't have to uninstall DPP3 to install DPP4. The two versions can co-exist. (However, DPP4 requires a 64-bit operating system.)

Exactly. I use both because I also have a D30 that I play around with sometimes. The best with Digital Photo Professional is the Digital Lens Optimizer. Too bad no other software is able to use that feature.

Ay any rate, Adobe DNG Converter is a better solution than DPP. 

 


Adobe DNG Converter is great. It is possible to copy the lens profiles from that software and use it in RawTherapee instead.

None of that info is required if you d/l the free Adobe DNG Converter.

"Raw file formats are extremely popular in digital photography workflows because they offer creative professionals greater creative control. However, cameras can use many different raw formats — the specifications for which are not publicly available — which means that not every raw file can be read by a variety of software applications. As a result, the use of these proprietary raw files as a long-term archival solution carries risk, and sharing these files across complex workflows is even more challenging.

The solution to this is Digital Negative (DNG), a publicly available archival format for the raw files generated by digital cameras. By addressing the lack of an open standard for the raw files created by individual camera models, DNG helps ensure that photographers will be able to access their files in the future."

Do a Google search for "free DNG Converter".  It is from Adobe so you know it is the best there is.


Or shoot Dual ISO and use cr2hdr to make DNG files Smiley Very Happy

I still suspect those big X's that you are seeing, are an indication that DPP cannot access the files....at their present location.  You may have to simply move them.  Beginning with Windows Vista, Windows became picky about what application it would allow to access which folder.  The OS is most especially protective of your root folder on your C: drive.

 

DPP should not have any problems accessing files stored in your  "Pictures" folder.  If you created a custom folder at another location, then you need to add that location as a "Library" so that applications may access it.  Also, DPP may have to be configured to "Run As Administrator" to access certain folders, which are normally inaccessible to installed applications.

 

Hope this helps.

The Big X's mean that DPP can't grok the format, not that it doesn't like where the files are stored. (I've seen the same thing while trying to read old, possibly non-standard, JPEGs.) The files can be anywhere. IIRC, very early versions of DPP did sometimes have trouble accessing files on network drives, but that hasn't been the case for a long time.

 

The OP's version of DPP almost certainly predates his camera. It's possible (maybe even likely) that something about the camera's RAW format is not being recognized. That's why I say that the first order of business should be to bring DPP up to its latest Rev level. Then if he still has problems, more aggressive measures can be considered.
