    Canon today announces the launch of Digital Photo Professional Express (DPP Express), a newly developed mobile application that enables EOS digital camera users to view, edit and process digital photos on iPad. The application is available to download free of charge[1] from App Store now.
    Designed for users seeking more creative control of their photos, DPP Express is an application for iPad[2] devices that enables the processing of RAW[3] image anytime at anywhere. The continued expansion of internet-based advertising and social media presents growing opportunities for viewing images on mobile devices such as iPad in addition to personal computers and traditional print media. By providing a mobile image editing platform that utilizes the superb portability, convenience and immediacy of the iPad, DPP Express meets the wide-ranging demands of users pursuing professional-level photographic expression.
    Delivering the same basic functionality as the acclaimed Digital Photo Professional desktop-oriented software, DPP Express provides additional workflow options such as edit history and allows users to process genuine Canon CR3 RAW images[4] and JPEG images on their iPad. Leveraging the convenience of mobile devices, this application helps more people experience the joy of creating images through RAW processing.
    DPP Express features intuitive operations that utilize the touchscreen interface of the iPad. With new iPad-oriented processing functions, photographers can use touchscreen operations to make fine adjustments to such parameters as color hues and saturation as well as noise reduction and sharpness.
