01 Quick ad­just

This is avail­able in all Pic­ture Con­trols ex­cept Neu­tral and Mono­chrome, and al­lows you to change groups of set­tings rather than al­ter­ing them in­di­vid­u­ally. For ex­am­ple, if you want to use Por­trait Pic­ture Con­trol but want a punchier look, you can set the quick ad­just to +1 or +2.

02 In­di­vid­ual ad­just­ments

This screen gives you con­trol over all the set­tings avail­able in each Pic­ture Con­trol. In the colour modes you can al­ter the Sat­u­ra­tion and Hue, while in the Mono­chrome set­ting you have con­trols for Fil­ter ef­fects, Ton­ing and Ton­ing sat­u­ra­tion in­stead.

03 Cus­tomis­ing Con­trols

If your Nikon has a ‘Man­age Pic­ture Con­trol’ op­tion on the Shoot­ing menu you can cre­ate cus­tom set­tings. This is usu­ally done by us­ing a pre­set as a start­ing point, then us­ing the con­trols avail­able to ad­just the set­tings, and fi­nally sav­ing the new Pic­ture Con­trol.
