How to Enhance Colors in Photoshop Using Vibrance
Hey there in this video, we're looking to enhance colors. I hate saying the word makes colors pop, but that's kind of what we're doing? We're just trying to kind of like lift some of the colors. So we're going to take this image that we've been working on and really just kind of reaching it up, especially the background stuff. This image here ready 123. Who colors are definitely enhanced and maybe some popping going on Now this technique is after levels is one of the first things I do. So step two in my fixing up my images, there's levels first, which we did in the previous video and then I look at vibrance just to kind of lift and raise some of the colors without going too far. We might have gone a little too far in this image, but that's okay, let's learn how to do it now in adobe Photoshop. Alright to get started, we're going to open up to files from that same folder called 02 color. I've got open vibrant, so one and vibrant, so too vibrant, so too is from calvinist era magazine. Gr...
eat, so we're gonna have vibrance one to start with. And what we're going to do is in our adjustments panel, we're going to use this one here, looks like a kind of a v with a gradient in the middle of the vibrance adjustment, click on that Now, I just mentioned that vibrance is a good replacement for saturation in most cases. Okay, so if you have doubled in Photoshop before and you use the human saturation slider saturation is fine, but vibrance is definitely better. Why is vibrance better in my opinion? Um vibrant. What it does is it looks at the image. Okay, and let's say the shoes are quite read already. Okay, But this um kind of colored boards in the background are quite washed out. So what vibrance does is watch this. If I drag up saturation to the top, kind of to get this really blue color in the background here, kind of popping, this red has to be oversaturated. Okay, and gets too much. So I'm gonna turn that back to zero. What happens with vibrance is watch this when I drag this up, you'll notice that the blue in the background gets better, but it leaves the already saturated colors alone. So it's just generally just a really good um I don't normally drag it up this high, I've got this example just because we've been using it already. Let's have a look at the oh vibrant, so too Okay, so same thing, I've got to the adjustments panel, going to go to the Vibrance and watch what happens when I drag the saturation, it kind of like I'm going way to higher, I'm going all the way up to 100, but you'll see the green start getting quite strong and the blues come out of here, let's go down, up, down, up. Okay, but the problem is is these colors that already had quite a strong color in them. Okay, get they start becoming kind of surreal or hyper real, just a bit too saturated. So let's leave this here and crank up this vibrance and you'll notice that the greens are the leaves you might not notice. So, I've got it up to 110. The eyeball on and off. You notice that like, the blue in here really came on strong, which is cool, and the leaves got a warmer kind of green in there, but you'll notice the bag down here, or at least the colors in here in the going to call it a scarf, and they get a little bit more, but not as much as these. So, it's more like the already saturated colors. Just get a little tweak and the ones that are just quite weak in terms of their color saturation can get it lifted up okay, to match some of those more saturated colors. Alright, that is going to be it for vibrance, you can use both of them vibrance and saturation to go completely overboard, but that is it. All right. I will see you in the next video Goodbye vibrance
