Karen, first and foremost, WELCOME TO NIKONIANS!!!

My D700 is my first (personal) DSLR and it is a great camera.

What I think you are looking for are Picture Controls. See this thread. Especially response by co-owner of Nikonians, JRP and his article shortcut here.

Picture controls can be applied in Post Processing using Nikon View NX (free) or better, Nikon Capture NX2.

Obviously, you will want to use this with RAW/NEF files.

I have downloaded the Velvia and AAAStandard-2 that were created by JRP. I have also downloaded the Nikon USA Picture Controls which can be found here: Landscape, Portrait and D2X.

I would also recommend you perform a general search on Nikon's website with the keyword "picture control" and get information there.

I also found Thom Hogan's eBook on the D700 most useful.

Again, welcome to Nikonians!

Anthony
