Ti­tle

The pomegranates in the cen­tre of this pic­ture look pale, so we choose the Chroma op­tion in the drop-down chan­nel menu in the LCH panel. We can es­ti­mate the colour of the pomegranates along the cen­tre line in this panel and then drag up­wards to in­crease the chroma value of that colour.

Bet­ter greens

But this pic­ture needs some­thing else. The greens look a lit­tle life­less. We can use the same process to in­crease the chroma value for this colour, but now it looks a bit yel­low. The so­lu­tion is to switch to the Hue chan­nel and push that part of the line up­wards to make the greens ‘bluer’.

Master Light­ness adjustment

We’ll fin­ish off with a con­trast boost, and we can do that by swap­ping back to the Master Light­ness view. In this panel you can make the same kind of Curves ad­just­ments as in the Lev­els and Curves panel which we looked at last month – a slight S-shaped adjustment gives the mid­tones a boost.
