LAB vs Channel Mixer vs Vibrance vs Saturation vs Old Saturation

  • LAB (Pro Version) – Uses the LAB color mode to add contrast to the chrominance channels. This was a popular way to boost vibrance but is not used much now because it requires too many steps.
  • Channel Mixer – Remixes the red, green and blue channels to boost saturation. It gives you highly-saturated results without color shifts seen with the vibrance and saturation adjustments.
  • Vibrance – Adobe’s rendition of how vibrance should work. This method typically darkens blue skies and shifts skin tones to prevent oversaturation.
  • Saturation – A straightforward way to boost vibrancy without the unique characteristics of vibrance.
  • Old Saturation – Increases the saturation value.
