Tweaking Picture Controls
You can boost your Nikon’s existing Picture Controls, or even create your own!
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.
