Customizing Picture Styles

You can customize the results that you get from the prefab Picture Styles. For the Standard, Landscape, Portrait, Neutral, and Faithful styles, you can adjust sharpness, contrast, saturation, and color tone.

I'm guessing that the first three effects — sharpness, contrast, and saturation — are self-explanatory. But the color tone option may not be so obvious. This option, which is designed to help you tweak skin colors, enables you to make your colors either a little more red or a little more yellow.

The Toning Effect options enable you to apply a sepia, blue, purple, or green tint to your monochrome image.
