Colors are the soul of any picture. In fact, sometimes even the lack of certain colors in a picture can add a new depth to the picture and enhance its beauty. So, an understanding of how colors work in a picture is important if you want to produce beautiful pictures.
One of the most powerful tools for taking control of the colors in your pictures is by using color saturation settings. Color saturation is the intensity of the color in an image. The higher the color saturation, the more colors will pop in your image.
So, let’s take a look at how color saturation works and how you can tweak these to make your pictures look amazing.
Saturation sliders exist in almost all types of photo editing software. The Urban Jungle Photo editor also has saturation control. If you slide the slider towards the left, you will reduce saturation and the image will look washed out. Moving the slider towards the right will increase the saturation.
You can also change the saturation of each color separately. This way you can make one color bright and vibrant, and some other colors completely washed out.
What is Color Space and why it is important?
Color space is the range of colors a photo can show. Think of it like a color index of the picture. The most commonly used color spaces are sRGB and Adobe RGB. RGB simply stands for Red Green and Blue. These are the primary colors that we use to make all the other colors.
Most screens use RGB. sRGB only has the capability to produce 75% of the colors in adobe RGB space. Understanding and selecting the correct color space can make the difference between a good-looking image and miscolored image.
This is the technique of desaturating the entire image except for one or two areas of bright color. This results in one or two objects being shown brightly with a faded background. This method is popular as you can subtly highlight an object.
You can use this technique to draw your viewer's attention toward a particular object.
