You can connect your camera to your computer through USB and use EOS utility to upload the picture styles to your camera. The camera seems to have 3 user-definable picturestyle slots so that would be the most you can keep in your camera at once, since the default styles are not overwritable.

If i adjsut the internal camera pictures settings.... Is it the same as using a custom preset from one that came from the picture style utility?

Settings like contrast and sharpness are the same. With picture styles, you can also control the luma curve (within limits) and do some secondary color correction (again, within limits.)

The bottom line is that the picture styles are more powerful, but can be difficult to adjust to get exactly what you want.

Just so I am clear also, do the Picture Styles affect shooting video or is it just for still shooting? I seem to have found conflicting answers on this. Thanks.

Yes, Picture Styles affect video as well as still shooting.
