Basics Panel: Saturation and Vibrance

Now that we're back in here, we're gonna work on our vibrance and saturation and let me explain the difference. So saturation is just all colors, getting more saturated in all colors, getting less saturated. So if I were to take saturation all the way down to zero, there would still there would be No, there's no actual color now in the image, so I've essentially turned it to black and white. But I've kept the color information. Um, if I increase the saturation, see what happens to her face. So it looks like she's been in like, a fake tanning booth, so we don't want to be there. And we don't want so saturation, usually for me on a portrait, especially on a landscape, you can go both ways a little bit, but on saturation, usually I don't go positive that all. I usually take it negative because it softens things up and it makes it a nicer skin tone. Whereas vibrance is different, Vibrance protects the skin tones, so watch if I take the vibrance all the way up. So I took the vibrance all th...

e way up, and it did weird things to the sky because it was trying to add blue and pink and green and stuff. But look for skin actually looks all right. It's It's still way too much, but it doesn't look as bad. It looks like she went to a good tanning booth and their spray tanning booth instead of a really bad one. So, um, if I use vie if I need something to B'more colorful and more vibrant, I'm going to use the vibrance to do it, because it's protecting the skin tones where a saturation is not protecting them. And consequently, if I take the vibrance down because it's amore intelligent tool, it's not actually taking everything down. So look, the warm tones are still staying in the picture. See that her lips have a little bit of color to him. Her skin does, but her hair is black and white. Uh, the grass is black and white, so all the cool tones have been brought down, so that gives you an indication of what it's working on. In most cases, the vibrance tool is working less on increasing that the warm tones, and it's increasing blues and greens more, and then when you're going negative with it, it affects the warm tones less so it leaves the warm tones and it cools the cool tones down. It removes the cool tones, so that's kind of what it's doing, whereas Saturation does it all at the same time here, regardless of what color it is.
