Another thing I notice is that when I export to PS sometimes the pictures look darker.

This would be due to PS being a colour managed program as opposed to when you are viewing them in windows explorer or whatever you use not being colour managed hence the differing colours. Same goes for many web browsers. Have a good read in the processing forum about colour management.

Niavely I always viewed post processing as "cheating" but after reading this thread and thinking of it as the dark room stage, I'll go back to some of my favorite images and have a go at the tings I've read about.


C & C most welcome.

I used to feel this way, but now I shoot off-road racing and it gets dusty, so post processing is necessary to fix any washed out shots because of dust.

This is right out of my 40D. Although I do have my saturation & sharpness turned up a little.

The image style button under you lcd screen. I set the first under defined option for motorsports, sharpness up 1 stop & saturation up 2.

Is this a rule of thumb or these settings can be used for all motorsports also what effect does this have becuase sometimes my pictures are bland in color/contrast even though the shot is good (if you understand what i mean)...............ev​en more confused STEVE:confused:

No rule of thumb, I just noticed when you make these changes on the 40D that actually make a difference in the pictures. I never noticed a change in my old 20D.

So instead of having to photo shop thousands of images, I make the changes I like in the camera.

Well it helps if you read the instructions :oI had the settings on faithfull which might be the dull tone to the shots ,I have taken your advice and i will give it a go (all the gear and no idea):rolleyes:I have just swapped from a 350D to the 40D so loads of settings to understand............​Steve:lol:

I had to do the same thing. I upgraded from my 20D and saw a new button and of course I had to play with it.

Just remember that picture styles are applied to jpegs but not (directly) to RAW photos.

DPP will interpret the picture style for a RAW and apply it but lightroom will not. That's why lightroom previews look great (the embedded thumbnail jpeg has the style applied) but then seem to suddenly desaturate when the actual raw is rendered. Lightroom doesnt honor picture styles unless its actually been applied to the image directly (a la jpeg)
