Canon 5D colors + DPP vs. LR

I'm a 5D4 user that fell in love with the organic look of the 5D files I saw on the internet. I bought the camera, very happy with it, intend to use it quite a lot. The only issue I see is that when I import RAW files into LR, the colors just don't look like the JPG colors. Upon research, I found out DPP is a better option, but I really like LR workflow so I'm trying to figure out a way to combine these two and photoshop. Is it possible to just read the file with the original colors in DPP, then import to LR for profile corrections, color grading, etc. and then doing other editing?


Also, I'm trying to find the full version of the DPP for 5D1, I have the CD but no CD reader.. Does anyone know where I'll find that on the internet?


Thank you!

Go to the Canon support site for your camera, the download will be there.

If you are using the subscription Lightroom then you can configure LR to read the Picture Styles that you have selected in-camera.


DPP has a direct transfer to Photoshop option.

You can also use Batch Process to have a file open in Lightroom.
