This has been completely revised in 2020 for version 4.12 including the numerous new features and options that the programme now has. The book has been revamped into the new format with an extensive reference section and expanded explanations on all the features making it over 150 pages longer than the previous edition. The book is equally applicable to Mac or PC users.
The book now includes a new section about the HDR PQ format which is an emerging way of processing images to replicate the dynamic range and colours that are seen by the human eye. Although available was a mode on the EOS 1DX Mark III this is also applicable in post-production to the EOS R and 5D Mark IV models.

Although initially the programme looks very similar to previous releases there are a number of additional options that have been added including a new monochrome feature within the Clarity options, Colour adjust palette, RAW mode options, Cloud processing and RAW movie to name but a few.


The advantage of using Canon’s own software to process your Raw images is that it will take a lot of the things that need to be done to the image from the camera and apply them to the RAW files as they open, minimising the amount that needs to be done to each image. Yet at the same time all the corrections can be changed if you feel that the settings were not right for the image.

Although called a beginner’s guide, which Nina has written assuming little or no knowledge of RAW processing. The book looks in depth at the complete program and could possibly be called a complete guide to Digital Photo Professional.

Nina's wide ranging training experience allows her to understand the areas where photographers often struggle with in post-production and many of the expanded sections that have been added into the book or included to help understand why the feature is used as much as how to use it. The book is richly illustrated with images showing the effect that the corrections give and when they should be used.
