Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting color saturation and vibrance, part of Learning Lightroom CC.
- [Instructor] Another quality of color…that you can control here in Lightroom CC…is the saturation or intensity of color.…Oftentimes, you can make a photo pop…by just making the color a little more vivid,…and the place to go for that is the Color panel,…where you'll find the Vibrance and Saturation sliders.…Let's take a look at the difference…between these two sliders.…If I drag the Saturation slider over to the right…to try to make this model's shirt a more vivid blue,…I can get the shirt where I want it…and the purple background where I want it,…but that over-saturates the model's face.…
It looks like he has a sunburn.…And that's often the case when you have a person in a photo.…So when I do have a person, I'll try vibrance instead.…I'm gonna put saturation back to zero…by double-clicking the slider,…and then I'll drag the Vibrance slider over to the right.…And I can take that slider way over,…adding just the amount of color intensity that I wanted…to the shirt and the purple background,…without overdoing the saturation in the model's skin.…
