The Canon Professional Network started a tutorial series for their own photo editing and RAW converter software, Canon Digital Photo Professional (DPP) 4.x (latest version).
Welcome to the Digital Photo Professional video tutorial section! CPN writer and software expert George Cairns unpacks Canon’s popular workflow software and explains key components with video demonstrations on how it can make a difference to your RAW workflow.
We will be publishing one video per week over the next 11 weeks, looking at particular elements of the software, with each video accompanied by a pdf mini guide which includes the the images used in the tutorial. Collect all 11 guides to build up the ultimate DPP library!
Simply click on each video as they are added each week and learn more about the software and how it can make a difference to your photography!
For the time being there are five tutorial videos:
- Get organised
- Recover missing shadows
- Levels and curves
- Counteract colour casts

The Canon EOS M5 is getting more attention than I thought. A sign that Canon isn’t making anything wrong when it comes to mirrorless. Jared Polin, better known as FroKnowsPhoto, posted a 30 minutes video where he goes through the setup of the Canon EOS M5. The video is also a user guide to the EOS M5.
The latest Adobe Lightroom Mobile update brought HDR Capture Mode. The 6 minutes video below shows how to use it at its best.
Photographer Peter McKinnon posted a neat 14 minute video that goes through the ins and outs of different Canon lenses. The focal length, the aperture, and the intended use of the lens are the discerning factors of a lens, and are discussed in thr video. Basically, in order to help you the right lens for you, your needs are broken down to three aspects:
- Will this be for photo or video?
- What’s my subject?
- How big is my budget?
