Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting Hue, Saturation, and Brightness, part of GIMP Essential Training (2012).
Another way to adjust images is to adjust three values known as hue, saturation, and…brightness, and these refer to the overall tonal quality of the image, the color saturation,…and of course, the color range in which the image has inside of it.…So in order to adjust the hue, saturation, and brightness values inside of GIMP, you…are going to go up to the Tools menu, and you're going to go down to Color Tools, and you are…going to select Hue-Saturation. And once you do that, you get this big dialog box here,…and you can actually adjust all of these values right down here at the bottom.…
Now, you can work on individual color values up here at the top, but if you want to do…an overall adjustment, which is what we are going to be doing in this movie, this is how you do it.…So I am going to ignore Hue for just a moment, and only focus on Lightness, and Saturation.…So they refer to Lightness; it's also sometimes referred to brightness, but in this case, they call it Lightness.…So the first value I am actually going to focus on is Saturation.…
