    Has anyone else had this potential problem? I have been playing around with some of the settings in my cameras menu and I came across one that enhances the saturation while shooting. On the D200, it's the Vivid 1 setting. I shot this photo yesterday and I think it's a bit too color saturated.

    Anyone else do this? I usually shoot normal and occasionally B&W for the heck of it.

    By the way. this photo is untouched and it's not a particular favorite, so let's not get into the critique mode please. This is just an example of the saturation thing. (man... that's pixelated! I really need to learn how to post photos correctly here!)

    Bah this is exactly what RAW is for. That way you can play and choose how the data is processed!

    Why do my photos in the posts go away? (this is really getting frustrating!) :grumpy: Can't I just attach a photo without it asking for a url address?

    is there an update I need to get. I am feeling like an idiot right now. I click on the "insert image" icon and it asks for a url.

    to answer your question, yes there are options that one can engage within the menu to change many setting that are pre-determined by the maker.

    if your not happy , just go back to the default settings.

    I know several people who not only calibrate their monitor to the printer, but also their cameras to the monitor and the printer.

    Can not see the photo. That being said I have found the WB controls much easier to deal with as opposed to the camera menu settings. For example I shoot cloudy + 2 on all my daylight photos. I have also found that the presetting the WB comes in handy.

    as far as saturation - background and jacket look fine but maybe desat the nose a bit - i like to have control over what gets saturated - but i do like the vivid setting for something outdoors like a seasonal scene.
