When developing RAW images, you can adjust them by using the Digital Photo Professional software supplied with your camera so that the Picture Style setting used when shooting is reflected in the image
Landscape: In a nod to traditions of landscape photography, this Picture Style emphasizes greens and blues and amps up color saturation and sharpness, resulting in bolder images.
Monochrome: This setting produces black-and-white photos — or, to be more precise, grayscale images. Technically speaking, a true black-and-white image contains only black and white, with no shades of gray.
Click File on the menu bar and Save As from the drop-down list. Name your black-and-white photo and click Save. You now have both the color original and the black-and-white copy.
If you set the appropriate style for what you want to express before taking pictures (for example, the Portrait setting for shooting people, or the Landscape setting for shooting the sky and deep green trees), there is no need to edit images with retouching software afterwards because they will be recorded with desired characteristics.
Your Canon EOS 70D offers Picture Styles, which you can use to further tweak color as well as saturation, contrast, and image sharpening. Sharpening is a software process that adjusts contrast in a way that creates the illusion of slightly sharper focus. The key word here is slightly: Sharpening cannot remedy poor focus but instead produces a subtle tweak to this aspect of your pictures.
Picture Style is a function that makes it easy to set the appropriate characteristics for the images being taken. The effects in the table below are provided.
Digital cameras record images after applying an electrical correction process for color tones, brightness, and contours to the signal output from the image sensor.
If you don‘t capture the image in the Raw format, you can’t access the original image colors later. In other words, you’re stuck with only a black-and-white image.
Portrait: This mode reduces sharpening slightly from the amount that’s applied in Standard mode, with the goal of keeping skin texture soft. Color saturation, on the other hand, is slightly increased.
One drawback with using Picture Style on-camera is the possibility of forgetting to change back to color mode. Many image editing applications can turn color photos into black-and-white after shooting, and Canon’s Digital Photo Professional ships with your camera, or, if you’ve misplaced your disk, you can download it from Canon’s support website.
If you set the Quality option to Raw (or Raw + Large/Fine), the camera displays your image on the monitor in black and white during playback. But during the Raw converter process, you can either choose to go with your grayscale version or view and save a full-color version. Or (even better) you can process and save the image once as a grayscale photo and again as a color image.

Neutral: This setting reduces saturation and contrast slightly compared to how the camera renders images when the Standard option is selected.
The extent to which Picture Styles affect your image depends on the subject as well as on exposure settings and lighting conditions. The following figure shows you a test shot at each setting (except Auto) to give you a general idea of what to expect. As you can see, the differences are subtle, with the exception of the Monochrome option, of course.
