Just downloaded the latest DPP. The spot adjustment will be useful for simply brightening a birds eye, to give one example, but on my old computer it takes a long time if a lot of adjustments have been made. I presume it's better to do what you can in DPP since Canon should know how to modify their own RAW files as good as anyone.
Is it just my computer?? This latest version is so slow and clunky although the new feature is appreciated if it didn't take all day. Everything I've done quickly and without issue in the previous version is now slow so I may have to go back.
