In this video, I look at how to change colors in an image using Lightroom’s HSL/Color panel. Transcript below.
You can change the individual color in an image from the HSL/Color/B & W panel. From the HSL and Color sections, you can adjust the Hue, Saturation, and Luminance of a specific color. Both of these sections do essentially the same thing – they simply feature a different way of accomplishing it.
From the HSL and Color panel, you choose the color you want to modify and choose what you want to change:
Hue – Changes the actual color.
Saturation – increases or decreases the intensity of the color.
Luminance – changes the brightness & darkness of the color.
Now I’ll click the lily.dng image (the image of the white lily).
Next, I’ll click the words HSL/Color/B&W in the right pane to expand the panel.
So I want to Display the HSL section so I’ll click the letters HSL as shown below.
I think I’m gonna drag the Green slider to the right to +20 as shown below. This changes the hue of the “greens” in the image.
Now I’ll click the word Saturation on top of the panel to switch to the Saturation section.
Here, I’ll drag the yellow slider to the left to -20 as shown below. This decreases the saturation of the yellows in the image.
You can also use the Targeted Adjustment tool to change a specific color. With the tool activated, click on the color that you want to change and drag to the left or right to change it. This comes in handy as the color green in an image can contain both green and yellow. Likewise, the color blue can contain both blue and aqua. This way, you’re only changing the color that you’ve exclusively targeted. The Targeted Adjustment Tool exists in the Hue, Saturation, and Luminance panels under HSL as well as the B & W panel.
So let’s click on the word Hue to switch to the Hue section.
Now I’ll click the Targeted Adjustment tool icon as shown below to activate it.
So with the Adjustment tool active, I’m going to click on the lily pad on the right side of the image and drag to the right until the lily pad is a greenish-yellow.
