Lesson 3. Painting >  Saturating colors

Saturating colors

Next, you'll adjust the saturation of the new color you added to the hat's top by changing the percentage of black in the color.

Using the selection tool ( ), click the top of the hat in the bottom left rectangle to select it. Make sure that the Fill box in the toolbox is selected.

Figure . Select top of hat.


Figure . Shift-drag left to desaturate magenta mix.


In the Color palette, hold down Shift and drag the M slider to the left to desaturate the color. Notice that as you Shift-drag, the sliders move in tandem, and the intensity of the color changes. Adjusting the saturation lets you change the strength of a color without affecting the hue. (However, if you drag a slider that is set to 0%, you will change the hue or color rather than the saturation.)

Click away from the artwork, and choose File > Save.
