Amber in AUS Posted July 1, 2012 Share Posted July 1, 2012 In a nutshell i have a new Canon 550D it takes lovely pics. When i render the RAW in Lightroom they look awful! (I'm a new LR user) When i render them through Digital Photo Professional (Canon's software) they are better and a closer match to the jpeg, but not exact. What am i doing wrong and how do i fix it? Because at this point it seems far easier to get nice results using jpegs and editing those! LR seems to apply a bunch of settings on import even though there are no presets on import. It sharpens A LOT to the point of skin looking plasticy and unnatural. Colours, especially red are changed too! Some way over saturated and some desaturated. I am committed to trying to work through this because i have some longer term plans for my photography but seriously hitting my head against a brick wall on this one! Anyone have any advice for me?
