As you're are editing an image, there may be times when you'll want to make a certain color pop. For example, you may want to make the sky bluer or the grass greener. In this video, Richard Harrington walks you through doing a secondary color correction on an image in Adobe Lightroom so that you can make further enhancements.
- Another question I often get asked is,…how do I make the skies bluer…or perhaps the grass greener?…This is what we call secondary color correction,…and it's targeting a specific color…or a range of colors for further enhancement.…Let's go to our next images here,…and I'll go with the single view.…In this case, I've got three photos that I want to enhance.…First up, one method for bluer skies…and richer greens in the grass is the vibrance slider.…This is selective color,…and it tends to be more aggressive with blues.…
You see there that the water and the sky really comes out.…And that may be enough.…If the other colors are too rich,…such as the vegetation here,…I can actually tone down the saturation slider…while leaving the vibrance slider all the way up.…A little of the clarity can also be useful,…and you see with the split screen there…that the blue skies definitely come through.…A slightly more advanced option is to go over here…and take advantage of another tool…a little bit lower in the stack.…
You'll find this under HSL.…
