    Thumbs up Camera photo styles

    Canon have 6 different photo styles on their site in the US, some look very interesting. Before I download some of these styles, has anybody had any experience with them, if so what are like?.

    Are you talking about these?? http://www.canon.co.jp/imaging/pictu...ile/index.html

    I've not seen them before, might be interesting, anyone used them? Are they worth the trouble over the basic ones in camera?

    Hi, They are plug-ins for 'Digital Photo Professional' that comes with your Canon Camera. I have tried them and find them too cumbersome. I have better control of all these functions in Photoshop 12 with the Adobe Camera Raw (v6.01) options. In fact I have much more control of things like skin tones, shadows/highlights, fill light, temp/tint etc than with these canon tools. I was even able to fig skin tones and blemishes in the Canon Raw options before opening and saving the following photo to a TIFF file. Of course, if you haven't got Photoshop then one could persist with these free plug-ins.

    They're like a preset. I will very rarely use either the "clear" or "studio". Have never applied the others.

    I'm a Canon user and I hate the image quality I get out of LR and ACR

    For me, Canon DPP and its picture styles, specifically Landscape mode, give me far better default images which I can then tweak in Photoshop if required

    For example (from left to right, Straight out of camera Landscape picture style, except vignette added; Photoshop desaturated; Photoshop "clarified"):



    Anyway it gets the look I want, but your experiences may vary
