For EOS compatibility (Picture Style, Lens Correction, etc), DPP is the way to go. However, DPP is EXTREMELY SLOW in generating thumbnails and filter lists especially when there are 100s of raw images per folder. You can expect ever more lag if those folders are located on a NAS. It's almost like the way to go is to process the CR2/CR3 files initially in DPP and convert them into JPGs or TIFFs and then use Lightroom from that point on. The problem with the TIFFs that DPP produces is that there's no LZW (lossless) compression so the files are huge.
What would really move folks like me off of Lightroom completely is if DPP adopted the catalog concept with keywording and GPS functionality.

@848291kmp were you hired by a company to promote Lightroom on the internet?
You have two posts on this forum, the first resurrecting a long dead thread and encouraging people to download a free Lightroom trial. I now personally use Lightroom, but, don't like to see these forums polluted with what appears to be viral marketing and not someone with a real question or actually looking to help others on this forum.

No, nothing like that. Just trying open Canon's eyes up. I've spent thousands of dollars on their hardware and I expect the software to exceed that of the competition. I think they need to invest more in DPP.

I definitely use and like Lightroom.
With my Canon 90D using CR3 setting, I noticed that any photos I deleted, show up in my trash can as an AFFINITY file (which means using Bridge to open).
1) Possible to change that setting so can easily remove from trash can back to Lightroom, if needed?
2) In the camera, is it better to shoot as RAW or use the CR3? Does the CR3 save memory card space ) like S-Raw used to?

The CR3 file type is the latest upgrade in Canon's RAW file format and seems to be the new standard for some or all of Canon's new camera models. But I don't know what specifically makes them different from CR2 RAW files.
Spend some time with the 90D user manual and you may find that it also offers an sRAW image size setting. But I know with my 60D, when shooting sRAW, the image size drops from 18mp to something like 8mp, if I remember correctly. And in DPP at least, certain editing options are disabled or limited.

You should be able to change the file association for .CR3 files in the operating system to designate which application will open the files.

Sounds right but please lead me through where to find it!
I use a Mac.
Where do I "change the file association for .CR3 files?"
And to what am I changing it to...Lightroom?
