The Edit Window

By default, the Edit window opens with Thumbnails and Tools selected, so that you'll see the first several of your selected images along the left and the Image Adjustment toolbox at the right. Should you choose to edit individual images, the tools in this window alone will probably accomplish 90% of your goals with DPP.

Select the images you wish to work on and click Edit Image window. Now that you've seen the Main window, the first thing you'll notice is that there are new buttons to work with, as well as additional Rotate and Batch Process buttons. You'll also notice three buttons at the top of the Toolbox window: RAW, RGB, and NR/Lens. If you shoot in RAW you'll be able to work in all three windows, and each does different things. The Main Window button will return to the file selection, of course. Selecting Thumbnails will isolate the image currently selected so that you may study it without the distraction of other images or colors. It is presented on a neutral background and permits you to use any of the controls on the right.

Selecting Tool hides the toolbox on the right so that you may study the effect of what you've done against a neutral field.

Although we usually tend to think of the digital camera as the best thing since sliced bread, there are both pros and cons with its use. Nothing is available on the market that does not have both a good and a bad side, but the key is to weigh the good against the bad in order to come up with the best of both worlds.
