Get the ultimate foundation in Adobe Photoshop CC, in this update to the flagship series Photoshop One-on-One. Deke takes you on a personalized tour of the basic tools and techniques that lie behind great images and graphic design, while keeping you up to speed with the newest features offered with Creative Cloud. Learn to open images from multiple sources, get around the panels and menus, and work with layers—the feature that allows you to perform masking, combine effects, and perform other edits nondestructively. Then Deke shows how to perform important editing tasks, such as cropping and straightening images, adjusting the luminance of your image, correcting color imbalances and enhancing color creatively, and finally, retouching and healing.
This chapter's topic is color. Now technically speaking, color is a combination of two ingredients: hue and saturation. Hue is what you and I think of as color. That is the colors of the rainbow; red, orange, yellow, green, and so on. Saturation is the intensity of that color, from lustrously vibrant to stone-cold drab. The various colors have specific hue and saturation values and because Photoshop provides a color-managed environment, that means you stand a good chance of achieving predictable results.
But our perceptions of color are largely subjective. Meaning that you can take an image with an obvious colour cast and adjust it in any number of ways. To you, one treatment will look just right. To someone else, another correction will look better and perhaps later to you as well. The way you perceive color is one way at breakfast, another at lunch, and still another before you go to bed. It's just the way our eyes work, which is why I advise you, go with your gut where color is concerned.
The consumer of your image will see his or her own colors, there's no avoiding that. Observe what you think looks best in any moment in time and stick with it. With that vague, but hopefully empowering advice in mind, here's how to adjust colors in Photoshop.
