Photographers capture multiple similar shots of their subjects, creating more work in post. It doesn’t matter if you shoot Raw or JPEG, recipes simplify post. Edit one image, and then clone those edits to multiple similar shots. Stored recipes for your preferred image appearance can be recalled and applied for consistency in a collection.
The number of photos we take has vastly increased compared to the past, making it a much harder task to refine and edit all the images from a shoot. Maybe you took ten shots to capture the best expression, or 20 while the bird flew straight at you, there’s still a lot to process.
Canon’s DPP stores each edit you do to a photo as a recipe. This recipe is detailed down to spot removal, selective area adjustment and slight rotation of the frame. Every time you edit an image in DPP, it updates the recipe for the shot, and allows you to leverage that effort to process multiple shots. Recipes got more powerful in recent years with the ability to choose which elements of the recipe to apply to other shots.
