Hello there!
I have been using Sigma's RAW Editing software and it has this amazing tool that paints in blue the under exposure areas and red the over exposure areas of a photo. That really helps correcting the picture and getting the best results.
Now I have a 40D that came with Canon's DPP, but no manual. I tried the software but could not find any tool in it where I can see the over/under exposed parts of a photo.
Does this software do that?
If not, is there any way for me to use Sigma's software to open Canon's Raw? (I think not..)
Any other option so I can do it? (Photoshop maybe?)
Thanks guys!

Hi Alex,

May I offer you a warm welcome to the CameraLabs forums.

Regarding your question, start DPP, select an image and then click the "Edit image window" button at the left of the toolbar. Then use the Highlight and Shadow entries in the View menu.

There is more to DPP than meets the eye so check out the Tutorials tab on this page.
