    Hello Friends,
    8
    As a Canon user, I have Canon's DPP installed on my PC running Windows 7. Like Photoshop CS version 8, I'm a little low on confidence in using DPP. Last night I looked around the menus of DPP, and came across some bewildering options. Can you help me please?

    I went into Preferences and under Color Management, I saw 2 drop-down menus. By the way, my printer is a Canon i9950.

    In the first drop-down menu, I given choices of :- i9950 MP1, i9950 PR1, i9950 PR2 and i9950 SP1. What is this and what to use?

    The second drop-down menu regards CMYK simulation profile. I chose to click on Euro Standard v.1.00 Canon. Is this ok?

    On the Work Color Space menu, I find the default setting to be sRGB, should I change this to Adobe RGB, to match the setting on my camera - a 7D?


    THank you,


    Frank.

    The printing profiles relate to Canon's photo papers:

    PR1 Photo Paper Pro Quality setting 1
    PR2 Photo Paper Pro Quality setting 2
    MP1 Matte Photo Paper Quality setting 1
    SP1 Photo Paper Plus Glossy Quality setting 1

    The CYMK settings are only used if you output to a CYMK device.

    Work colour space should be set to AdobeRGB if that is what your camera is set to, otherwise jpegs will look different.
