Lightroom 5.7.1 vs Digital Photo Professional 4

I viewed the same RAW image in both Lightroom 5.7.1 and DPP 4.  The image as viewed through LR had weak colors.  When I viewed the same image in DPP 4, the image had great colors, sharpness etc. more in line with my in camera settings?  Has anyone else had this happen?  My camera is a 7D mk2 with a EF 24-105 L lens.  Any information would be apprecitated.

Re: Lightroom 5.7.1 vs Digital Photo Professional 4

Several factors are at play here.

1. DPP knows exactly how the camera settings can affect the image and can create a RAW rendering that honors those settings. LightRoom may not be able to understand those settings. So for example, if you set the camera for VIVID, DPP understands that and processes the RAW accordingly. LightRoom might not be able to read that setting in the RAW file (it might only see a "93", for example) and ignores it.

 

2. The authors of DPP and Lightroom may just have different interpretations of what constitutes a "well developed" raw file.

 

The nice thing about RAW is that you are free to adjust things to get them the way you want them since you have all the data available to play with.

Inside of "Develop", go to Camera Settings.  Change "Adobe Standard" to "Camera Standard", or another "Camera" setting.

Or to phrase what I believe is Waddizzle's point in slightly less Adobe-specific terms, when an image configured to be displayed in the sRGB color space is displayed in the Adobe RGB color space instead, the effect is as you describe.

Thanks, Bob.  I'm taking pictures in sRGB, so I change that setting inside of an Import Preset in LR6.

The image in DPP is so much better than the same image in LR.  Not even close.  DIsappointing, because I like LR.

I went into "Develop", "Set Default Settings" it said, "Change Default setting for Lightroom and Camera Raw for negative files with the following properties" then it listed my Camera, Canon 7Dmk2.  I hit "Update to current settings"  This images still are washed out and look horrible comapared to DPP

"Inside of "Develop", go to Camera Settings.  Change "Adobe Standard" to "Camera Standard", or another "Camera" setting." 

 

I was not referring to the drop down menus, not at all.  I was referring to the "Camera Settings" tab in the Develop module.  Look on the lower right.  It will be at the bottom, below "Basic", "Lens Correction", etc.
