Nifty new feature in DPP

    I've always liked Digital Photo Professional, Canon's high-end RAW-mode photo
    editor. It's not very feature-rich, but what it does do it does well. Its
    white balance correction is very good, and it has the most convenient cropping
    tool I've seen. But it has always had a glaring omission: any way of rotating
    an image in increments of less than 90 degrees. If you needed to adjust a
    horizon, you had to convert the image to JPEG and do the rotation in some
    other editor. (My choice for that was the Microsoft Office Picture Manager,
    whose high-resolution display capability is appalling, but which does
    rotations in tenths of a degree.)

    The latest version of DPP, released late last week, fills that hole. Its
    excellent cropping tool has been expanded to include rotations to hundredths
    of a degree, with an option to automatically maximize the usable area in the
    rotated image. I've been using it for two days, and so far I'm very pleased.
    It does a nice job and is relatively easy to use. I think it makes DPP an even
    better choice for a Canon user who wants to do serious editing, but isn't
    ready to shell out the big bucks for Photoshop or one of its expensive

    While they were at it, did they also fix the bug, introduced two or three
    years ago, that makes DPP sometimes crash while trying to display a JPEG image
    that it didn't create? Alas, no.

    Does it use Lanczos-8 for its resampling algorithm for all rotations and
    resizings? If not, then it will do no better than PhotoSlop for rotations
    and resizings, blurring all the fine details down to the resolution of a
    $30 toy-store camera. Pixel-peepers only seem to pixel-peep when it comes
    to other cameras and software, never their own. Their bliss attained from
    self-induced ignorance has too much of a blinding hold on them.

    Wouldn't matter. It won't change the truth. It would only change your
    feeling so psychotically insecure about reality less often.

    Why not just filter him/her/it out, Ray?

    The truth is that you're a dumbshit asshole.
    Ray Fischer, Mar 4, 2010
  7. Careful, David; Ray will assume you support the nym-shifting pest when
    you question the wisdom of his inane and profane one liners.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    I see that you're still defedning the asshole trols.

    Why is that?
    Ray Fischer, Mar 4, 2010
  10. Well, Ray, I have to conclude you're trying to troll me, pretending
    you're so thick that you cannot discern the differences.

    And the nym-shifter isn't so much a troll [or Troll] as a pest. Nothing
    original comes from him.

    Your one liners calling him names and telling him to go away feeds him.
    That's why I and others have admonished you to stop, to stfu, to cease
    and desist, to ignore.

    You're not answering the question.
    You're either lying, stupid, or a troll.

    I vote for stupid.
    Ray Fischer, Mar 4, 2010
  12. Well, $30 happens to be a lot of money. According to a certain troll,
    "one simply buys a completely brand-new P&S camera with the latest
    sensor technology, the newest innovations, a new warranty, and even
    better optics for 1/10th the price of your dSLR lens alone, one that
    beats the image quality of your DSLR too. It'll also all fit in one

    The lens in question was a €69 EF-S 18-55mm.

    LOL! Guest

    Since none of you fuckingly useless idiot DSLR TROLLS can even do simple
    math, here's the total cash outlay again for you.
    LOL!, Mar 4, 2010
  14. Here's some simple math I did all by myself: 69 / 10 = 6.9.

    I don't know why you worry about any of that. No matter what editor you've
    used, what camera you've used, all your results are for shit. Proved time
    and time again. Do you think a better of anything is going to help
    something like you with zero talent and skills? Go ahead, post some more
    tilted pink granite mountains and pink clouds lit by noon sunlight. Or
    animals slowly walking downhill on level land. I really liked those badly
    composed shots of some streams where the water wants to flow backward with
    all the asymmetric CA in them from your "high quality" lens.. How about
    those blue leaves on all the bushes that you take snapshots of too! Any of
    those are always good for another laugh!

    Honestly, do you really really think that a better camera or editor is ever
    going to help someone with as lame of snapshooter and editing skills as you

    LOL!, Mar 4, 2010

    Ummm ... you and SD and others could just ignore him.

  18. Wouldn't do any good as Ray fans the flames all by his lonesome.
    Besides, I reply to only one in 38 of his posts.

    Two vultures board an airplane, each carrying two dead raccoons. The
    flight attendant looks at them and says, "I'm sorry, gentlemen, only one
    carrion allowed per passenger."

    Feeding the trolls again?

    ... and to see your name again, Jerry. I hope life is treating you well.
    I used to mentally filter out, but if find that not seeing the drivel make
    the group a pleasanter experience for me, and avoids the temptation to
    respond and correct the nuisance - just the responses it feeds on.

    I still don't do raw, but I have moved up to a DSLR with better focussing
    and with Live View and video (the Nikon D5000), and finding that a very
    nice camera to use without being too heavy. For recent trip to Northern
    Norway to see the Northern Lights, I bought a 35mm f/1.8 lens for the
    camera, which coupled with the ISO 3200 I can now use, even allowed me to
    make a couple of very short movie snippets. Still to make the Web album
    from the trip, though.
