Using the Saturate and Desaturate Commands

The Hue/Saturation adjustment gives you separate control over an image's Hue, Saturation, and Brightness, and it's Colorize option lets you apply a color cast to an image that's similar to a duotone effect. With one click of the mouse, the Desaturate command removes all the color from an image, in essence converting the image into a grayscale version of the original.

Use the Hue/Saturation Adjustment

Open an image.

Click the Image menu, point to Adjustments, and then click Hue/Saturation.

Drag the Hue, Saturation, and Lightness sliders to the level you want for your image.

Click the Edit list arrow, select a color, and then click inside the active image with the eyedropper tools to adjust the Hue/Saturation.

Select the Preview check box to see how your image looks.

Select the Colorize check box to color tint the image with the current foreground color.

Click OK.
