Chapter 10. Color Manipulation > Saturating Your World

Saturating Your World

Most images that come from a digital camera or flatbed scanner can benefit from a boost in saturation (Figure 10.15). For a general boost of color, I recommend making a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer and ratcheting up the Saturation slider until the colors in your image start to pop (Figure 10.16). When you do that, you'll probably notice that some colors become too vivid before others have reached their true potential. To avoid oversaturating, choose the color that's objectionable from the Edit pop-up menu, click on the color within your image to center the color isolation sliders, and then move the Saturation slider toward the left to mellow it out (Figure 10.17).
