    I am wondering why it’s not possible to move the shadow beyond -9 s the gamma adjustment shows a minimum value of approx -11 but the shadow is stuck at -9. Why was it made like that just curious. Whereas on the highlight side we can move the highlight until +6 from its current position of +4. Can’t find any info on the web so asking here hope some one has insight into this

    Subscribed! I've been mucking about with post-processing software for, oh, I don't know, 15 years or more, and I've never heard as good an explanation of Levels and Curves as I did watching this video. "Remapping" nails it for me. Thanks much.

    I see where you are going with the corrections. It just seems the washed out spots are still extremely washed out. There is a lack of balance. Shouldn't we just trust our eyes sometimes over a histogram? It's a great tool, but wood, hammer, and nails build a house, but it takes a person to build it.

    Why shoot in RAW, when only we have to save them back to a JPEG file to view them with picture viewers and I am not sure but not all viewers will decode those RAW files.  Please, someone help me with this one.

    Thanks a lot for creating this series of videos on how to use DPP. In my opinion a very powerful (and free) editing software, that Canon gives away for Canon EOS users.
    Really no need for Lightroom – well LR has some features that DPP dont, but I like DPPs RAW converter and until now I have never really been as familiar with LR as with DPP – and I very much like the DPP way of file handling. No index, not library – just browsing the filesystem! Much easier, and much more logic – to me at least….
