By default, the Rebel chooses automatic picture style. This means that the color tone in the image is going to be adjusted according to what the camera thinks it needs. Typically you're going to get bluer skies, greener greens, and redder sunsets that kind of thing and in other words you're going to get a saturation hit on your images. If I want to change to a different picture style though I can use the Picture Style button, which is right here. I press this and I get a menu of Picture Style options. So this is Auto that's the default.
Standard, which is just a general-purpose picture style. It's not going to amp up the colors too much it's going to leave things pretty much alone, but do a little bit of adjustment to make the typical picture look better. Portrait, which is going to try to improve skin tones and soften the image. Landscape, which is going to try to improve skies and foliage, so typically blues and greens are going to get ahead and it's going to go for little more sharpness. Neutral is going to be pretty much not do anything at all. This is going to give you what probably appears to be a slightly flatter image not as contrasty without as much color boost.
Faithful is for shooting under sunlight. It's going to give you kind of flat dull images, but your colors would probably be very accurate. With both Neutral and Faithful, you'll probably find you need to do quite a bit of adjustment in your computer later. Monochrome is a black and white picture style. It allows you to shoot black and white stuff in the camera. And then you've got three User Defined picture styles so these give you three slots where you can set up your own picture styles for the particular type of lighting situations that you may regularly shoot under.
