    Great insights (as ever!). I like all the techniques you described, and I gotta say ACR always had my vote, but — your solid-color and complimentary-color techniques have opened my eyes!

    • Photoshop Training Channel says:

      Thank you! Yeah, ACR is pretty good. I gotta say, I have been using it a lot more lately myself.

  2. Vincenzo Platini says:

    Great tutorial! IMHO the best way is to use Camera Raw filter; more controls and with the use of the Smart Object you can make non destructive adjustments. BTW: love the old Fiat 500 car!

    Nice compilation of saturation techniques.
    You missed my (new) favorite one though. For overall saturation. Using the sliders in camera calibration (eighter in camera raw or LR) is a much better way to saturate your image. If you work with a raw. It is a little more complex because you adjust each channel separately etc. But I am having a lot less problems with bending etc. since I use that one.
