Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting a picture style, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
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.…
