Add Saturation to Adjustments

Postby bbqdad » Mon Oct 07, 2013 1:32 pm

Work with old photos and especially 35 slides that have color issues. I currently take these out to Photoshop to color correct but many times just having a Saturation adjustment would work with these images.

Photodex has been prodded for a saturation slider, and it wouldn't hurt in the least if you write to them with the request. Software companies who are nagged eventually give in.

I agree, it would be nice to have a saturation slider too.

Until then, as a work around, I've had fairly acceptable results by sliding the Black Point slider to the left to increase the darks, (try -10 to -20) and then sliding the Brightness to the right (+10) to regain the details in midtones. But because each image is different in tonal qualities, there is no perfect setting for every image.

Use the Adjustment window to avoid having to apply tweaks to all the settings in all KF in a slide layer in the Effects window. On the opposite note, saturation can be reduced as desired by using colorize with a grey tone and adjust the % to retain as much color as needed. That should affect all KF in that layer.

This trick may not give you the saturation you're looking for to enhance the old slides. If they're faded, you could also try bumping up the contrast in addition to playing with the settings mentioned above.
