Let's explore how we can create some really vivid colors in this photograph while using the HSL panel controls. You know, if you're in any of your panels and you decide that you want to go over to the HSL panel, one easy way to do that is to click on the icon for the Targeted Adjustment Tool. Then select the area that you want to go to. In this case, let's say we want to go to the Hue tab, when you click on that it will open up the HSL Panel and target the Hue tab.
Next we can hover over the image and Click+Drag down to make the tent say more Orange or drag up to make it a little bit more Yellow. Alright well, next I want to work on the color of the Tent. Yet if we click and drag here what will happen is we're going to actually affect more of the Yellow tent than we are of the Green tent. This doesn't really work well here. So sometimes what you'll need to do is you'll need to go to the slider itself and just drag this over, in order to change that part of the photograph. Next we could also work on our blues.
Here I'll just click and drag that to the right a little bit. Well let's go to the Saturation tab. Here under the Saturation tab, I also want to bring out a little bit more of the greens. So I'm going to click and drag this over and I'm going to bring in even more yellow into this photograph. Again, I'm going for really punchy, really vivid colors. What about Luminance? With Luminance, I'll brighten up the tent here, and I'll darken my sky by clicking and dragging these down. We could use the sliders, or just hover over the image in order to make those changes.
Let's evaluate. Click on the Preview button. There is our before and then here's our after. And so by working with these sliders what we can do is Shift Color and Color Saturation and also Color Brightness. And sometimes, by making these changes we can change the overall mood or feeling in a image. In this case, by darkening those yellows, it feels a little bit more subdued, a little bit more quiet. But when we crank those up it's a bit more of a happy photograph. In other situations you might use these controls in order to make corrections.
