Quick Tips: Master Fundamental Colors in Photoshop

Alter shades with Hue/Saturation

Photoshop's Hue/Saturation controls are great for boosting colours, but they can also make sure colours are just the right shade. For example, grass can often look yellow, and boosting the saturation of the greens won't work as there's very little green present. However, adjusting the hue of the yellows towards the green area of the spectrum will do the trick.


To select the yellows, either locate Yellows in the drop-down under Master, or select the Eyedropper tool and click on a relevant part of the image.

Uesful Tip: Auto Color

There's no point in creating work for yourself. If an image needs colour correction, it's often worthwhile letting Photoshop have a crack at sorting the problem out automatically.

To do this, simply select Image>Auto Color. If that doesn't get it spot on, you can always make further adjustments using the Hue/Saturation and Color Balance controls. For maximum flexibility, apply the Auto Color corrections to a Duplicate Layer so it can be quickly removed.
