First test image
So we can see that two of the styles increase dynamic range (IQ Professor weakly and Landscape strongly) and two increase contrast (Still Life weakly and Fashion strongly). Still Life and Fashion also seem to include some colour shifts that I’m curious to explore further.

In the next update to this article, I’ll look at what they do to an image that has less contrast in the scene to start with, and fewer dark areas.
