A WhitePaint <R> example. WhitePaint <R> has the effect of white balancing against a warm card. The method is to white balance the camera and then selectively set the warmth (or pull the warmth out) of the resulting scene using the WhitePaint <R> menu setting. There is also WhitePaint <B> which does the same thing as white balancing against a cool card. WhitePaint settings adjust the overall look of the scene as opposed to the Gain and Rotation settings which will adjust CMYRGB somewhat individually.

My understanding is that white paint only affects when you're using auto white balance, yes?

WhitePaint does not work in FAW or "full auto" mode.
The proceedure is to white balance first with the Auto white Balance button and then go into the menu and adjust the WhitePaint <R> or <B>. If you auto white balance again the setting is lost (automatically reset to "normal") and you'll have to go in and make your WhitePaint setting again.
