Imagine an Instagram feed filled with a variety of vibrant colors. Beautiful or? However, if you look at the photos in the albums of your iPhone or Android phone, they are all too boring to get that dynamic look. There is no doubt that colorful pictures are more eye-catching than boring ones. So how can you make sure your photos are overflowing with vivid colors? The answer: Add them in the mail.
A photo taken with the right settings does not normally capture the liveliness we see in real life. With Adobe Photoshop Express, you can increase the color in a photo for a more natural look, or you can maximize the color to create a magical look that is as vivid as never imagined. [1
Note that Adobe's mobile PS Express is available for both iOS and Android. If you already have it, you need to update it before proceeding.
Step 1: Adjust Temperature and Color
First, open PS Express and select your image . Then tap the "Settings" tab in the bottom toolbar and scroll until you reach "Temperature" and "Hue". On an iPhone, you can jump directly to these color tools by tapping the Color tab over the available customization tools.
Temperature and hue both change the color of a photo based on color perception. The cones in our eyes help us perceive colors in red, blue, and green, and we look at the differences between these colors to get other colors in the visible spectrum. These are spectral colors, but there are also non-spectral colors like magenta, which we perceive by mixing blue and red without green. For the sake of simplicity, the temperature in the human color scheme goes horizontally from blue to orange, while the tint goes from green above the line to purple below.
The temperature of a photograph refers to the amount of blue or yellow / orange in the image. When a picture is taken, the temperature may shift naturally. For example, a picture taken at dawn has a warm temperature that is yellow or orange, and a photograph taken under fluorescent lighting has a cool temperature that is blue.
The hue of a photo refers to the amount of magenta or green light that appears. Hue is not often used in corrections, as a photo usually only requires this type of adjustment when photographed under a gas emission light such as neon light. However, the hue controls in PS Express can be used differently by increasing the color of your photo. This makes working with color adjustments fun!
When you tap the Temperature setting tool, adjust the slider above it to your liking, from the leftmost blue to the far right yellow. The same applies to "hue", but the far left is green and the far right is magenta. If you improve the color, there is no right or wrong way to do it. Just play with the sliders until you find something to satisfy you.
Step 2: Customizing Vibrance & Saturation
"Vibrance" and "Saturation" increase the intensity of your color without actually changing the hues. Saturation affects the overall intensity of the color in your image, while all the colors in the photo are equally saturated and improved. Vibrance uses smart tools to zoom in on only the areas of the image that are not saturated, leaving the already saturated areas at rest, making the color gain less hard.
Tap the Vibrance slider to the right of the adjustment tools discussed above, and move the slider over to the left or right. Links decreases the intensity of the low saturation areas while the right increases these areas. To adjust all the colors at the same time, tap "Saturation" and set the slider to "Left" to remove all colors, or "Right" to overdo them.
You can toggle between the two tools until you find the look you want. Also, do not be afraid to return to "Temperature" and "Tint" to make adjustments as needed.
If you're satisfied with the adjustments made, do not forget to save your image. If you think you may want to reuse these customizations, you can save this representation in your custom presets and use them over and over again.
