Thanks, all, for your thoughts. Very helpful. Very relevant info for me right now. Like you, I am struggling with the time it takes to do this. Shoot raw - worry about the rest afterwards. EOS utilitly - raw to computer filed by shooting date 2. DPP - quick review. Batch rename those that I do. Edit in DPP. Usually bring sliders in a bit on raw histogram, noise and lens if necessary, and any cropping. Default DPP noise is set 2 for luminence and 1 for chroma.
Add a bit of sharpening depending on which lens. Occasional white balance correction. Quality usually 6. I rarely do anything else in gimp. Irfanview allows long side to be specified and for instance no re-sizing of small images. This is so that you will always have an untouched original to go back to. I disagree on this point, do a lot of adjustments in DPP and want to save those changes. It can take some time originally to tweak a file to how you want it so I save it that way.
You will have no untouched original to go back to. RAW is not an image. It is sensor data together with certain parameters which are then used to form an image. I did this a lot when I forst got my XSi.
Workflow (cataloging) with DPP and Lightroom
Thanks for visiting the Art of the Image blog. I always liked DPP when I worked with it. It was very easy to work with once you got the workflow figured out and capable of delivering excellent quality RAW develops from Canon CR2 files. Overall, my thoughts on comparing the RAW develops from each are very similar to the Lightroom vs Nikon comparison I did. In general, DPP does a better job right out of the gate with no tinkering. You can get the same results, or very close, from Lightroom, but DPP provides a beautiful result right out of the camera as it were. I used the Camera Standard profile in Lightroom, so the results were always pretty close once I turned off my own presets.
