There is a trio of darkroom tools at the bottom of the toolbar in the Full Edit workspace.…These tools are the Sponge tool, the Dodge tool and the Burn tool.…The Sponge tool is used to desaturate or to saturate small areas of a photo.…By default, the Sponge tool is set to Desaturate.…So if what you want to do is intensify color, be sure to check the options bar…for this tool before you use it.…I'll leave it set to Desaturate for now and I'll move into the image and I'm…going to click and drag over this area of the image and you can see that the…color becomes just a little bit less saturated.…
This tool works cumulatively.…So each time that I click and drag, I remove a little more color.…If I switch the tool from the Desaturate mode to the Saturate mode and then I…come into another part of the image and drag, the color under my cursor gets a…little more intense.…Back in the toolbar, I'm going to switch to the Dodge tool.…This tool can be used to lighten parts of an image.…Before I use the tool, I'll visit the options bar.…
