Dpp transfer to photoshop - what's going on?

Hi, sorry if this should be obvious. I've been trying Canon's Dpp software for my raw conversions instead of my usual Acr. I can get the raw file looking very good in Dpp without too much trouble, but when I 'transfer to photoshop' it looks totally different - flat and dull. I don't get this with Acr.

What setting do I need to change? Any help appreciated.

I do the same but I don't have this problem. Do you work with a calibrated monitor?

Hi, yes I do it's a spyder. Even if it was not accurate it wouldn't explain two different results would it? thanks for helping.

Is the Dpp software storing the sidecar file in the same location as the raw file?

Hi Doug, now that I've looked, no they're not in the same location. I don't know where they are!

Dave, that sounds to me like you have a problem with color management. What color space are you outputting from DPP and what color management policies is Photoshop set to?

Some quick googling tells me that Dpp doesn't write sidecar files, embedding it's info into the file itself. This makes it unaccessible to most other apps.

Nope DPP doesn't write sidecar files since its the propietary software to read and transalate canon RAW files.

Hey have you tried to load the monitor profile to DPP? It is "color aware" in that way. Go to Tools>Preferences>Color management there you can find many options regarding color, I haven't found a noticeable difference between what I see in dpp and what it transfers to photoshop. At least not noticeable to make a test on it. I have both programs work on the same monitor and I haven't noticed any color variations from the raw file displayed in DPP to the .TIFF file it exports to photoshop.
