This tutorial will show you how to adjust your photo color to give it a nice saturation quick and effective.
In this tutorial I will show you how to quickly increase the saturation in LAB space, LAB uses Lightness, A and B instead of red, blue and green channel. The advantage of using LAB (pronounced L – A – B, not lab) is you can manipulate the color without influencing the tone which is controlled by the L channel.
I’ve changed the color space to LAB mode and strengthen the contrast of the AB channel to increase the saturation and give it higher contrast by manipulating the lightness channel. The rest are just adding special effects such as blur and creating a more pleasing color value. The effects I add was glowing effect by duplicating one copy and blurring it and increase the contrast so that more highlight shows, than blur it again. After blurring it twice set the correct blending mode and turn down the opacity if necessary, go ahead and experiment with the effect to see what you come up with.
