Part 4. Advanced Photo Fixing > Selecting Color Variations

Selecting Color Variations

Perhaps it's not that the colors in the picture are wrong, you'd just like to see them different. For example, an interior decorator might want to view a room in a different light or with the decor a different shade. Experiment with color variations, which can be more dramatic than just correcting the overall cast.

With a picture in the active image area, choose Enhance, Adjust Color, Color Variations.

Click a radio button to choose what part of the image you want to adjust.

Drag the Amount slider to make the differences between the Variation thumbnails greater or less.

NOTE

Adjust Midtones First

Of the selections Midtones, Shadows, Highlights, and Saturation, Midtones (values ranging between shadows and highlights) usually give you the most noticeable results. To change the magnitude of an effect, drag the Adjust Color Intensity slider before you apply it.


Click a thumbnail, such as Decrease Green, to change color or brightness in the shot.

Click the same thumbnail again to increase its effect, or click another thumbnail to adjust a different color or the image's brightness.

When the After image looks right, click OK.
