Anhand der Informationen im Internet zu "flat picture styles" denke ich, dass es um eine Einstellung mit niedrigem Kontrast und Farbsättigung geht. Aber wie würde die deutsche Übersetzung der Menüoption heißen?

Explanation:
When referring to curves of any kind, frequency responses, equalizing sound or images, "flat" normally means the straight line in the middle, which is the most neutral setting, having no influence on the output.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Vielen Dank, leider gibt es die Menüoption "Neutral" bereits (Standard, Neutral und dann noch Optionen für intensivere Farben+Kontrast). Das hätte ich natürlich erwähnen müssen. Sorry.
