Want a shot to feel more colorful? You might reach for the Saturation dial and crank it up.
That might give you the results you want, but if it doesn’t… there are more options!
The Saturation control in the primaries will adjust the saturation of all colors together in one particular way.
Using the HDR palette, the global saturation behaves differently… and you can also control saturation for each zone.
There’s also the Custom Curves, which gives you a lot of other controls related to saturation.
In this video from Fred Trevino, you’ll learn about:
- Why the default saturation tool isn’t always the answer
- HDR Saturation tool
- Hue vs Saturation curve
- Hue vs Lum curve
