Re: Another Picture Control Question...

It's like this :

Neutral

It's created to give you a more already finished result that's as close to being good enough from the start with as little brightness, contrast and saturation adjustment as possible needed. Shadow detail suffers a bit more and highlights can be clipped a bit but overall it looks good. This is the best option if you can't be bothered to do much or really any colour, brightness and contrast adjustments.

Flat

Very muted colours, lack of contrast and toned down brightness designed to give you more control over what you want the end photo to look lkike with regards to contrast, brightness and colour saturation. This is the best option if you want a lot more control over how bright, contrasty and saturated you want the end photo to be.

Simple as that. Personally I use flat most of the time even though I only shoot RAW, I want to do as little processing as possible and i'm happy with the results.
