Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Fine-tuning colors in the HSL panel, part of Learning Lightroom 5.
You can adjust a particular color wherever it appears in a photo using the …sliders in the HSL panel. HSL stands for Hue Saturation and …Lightness, the three properties that Lightroom uses to describe color. …Here you can see a tab for each of those three properties. …Saturation means the intensity of color and using the sliders in the saturation …section of this panel I can change individual color ranges separately. …So, let's say I want to make the yellows in the image less intense, but not affect …the other colors. I'll take that yellow saturation slider …and drag it over to the left. And that's desaturating the lemons.…
But, notice that it's also desaturated yellow wherever else it appears in this …image, here and here, and even the yellows in the basket and in the mat. …And, if I take that slider and go the other way, all the yellows become more intense. …I might increase the saturation of the yellows just a little bit like this. …So, dragging that slider has affected yellows wherever they are in the image …
Then you'll learn key ways to manage your photos in Lightroom, from reviewing photos after a shoot to working with Smart Previews when your photos are offline. This part of the course covers making collections, adding keywords, and much more.
Next, the course introduces the Lightroom Develop module and its features for improving a photo's appearance, including adjusting tone and color, cropping and fixing perspective, converting to black and white, reducing noise, and sharpening. It explores how to make local adjustments with the Adjustment Brush, Radial Filter, Graduated Filter, and Spot Removal tools. The course ends with a look at the most commonly used Lightroom features for sharing photos: exporting, printing, and sharing online.
