  • You can also save an unedited copy of an image as a separate image.
  • When using linear processing, select [TIFF 16bit] to save.
  • The color space in the preferences or one that is set individually is written in the ICC Profile, which is embedded in JPEG and TIFF images. An ICC profile is a file containing information related to color, such as the color properties and color space that the International Color Consortium has established for each device. Many management systems let you minimize color differences between devices using this ICC profile.
  • [Resize setting] lets you resize an image by applying the larger of the values set in [Width] or [Height] to the long side of the image even if there is a mixture of images shot horizontally and vertically.
  • To save the developing/editing results for the version you are currently using
Digital Photo Professionals RAW image development processing technology is continually being improved upon so that you can perform the latest image processing more appropriately.
Meaning that, between two differing versions of Digital Photo Professional , processing results may differ very slightly even if with the same RAW image data, or the results of significant editing of RAW image data with an attached recipe may be different. When you want to save the developing or editing results of the version you are currently using as it is, it is recommended that you convert and save images as JPEG image or TIFF images.
