Part 8. Flattering Your Subjects > Enhancing or Toning Down a Color

Enhancing or Toning Down a Color

The Sponge tool doesn't actually change the color of a selection, it just intensifies (saturates) or reduces (desaturates) it. It can come in handy for brightening up a wardrobe, such as neck scarves, or for toning down a too-colorful background that's competing with your subject.

With a photo in the active image area, switch to the Sponge tool, or press O.

To enhance color, switch to Saturate from the Mode pop-up menu in the Options bar.

Click and drag over an area to heighten its color.
