The Color Harmony tool offers several advanced options for precise color control. While you likely won’t need all of the sliders for each image, it’s helpful to be familiar with them.
- Brilliance. This slider is useful for creating rich colors in a photo.
- Warmth. This slider controls the color temperature in the image and can be used to stylize an image. Positive values warm the image, while negative values tone it down.
This tool lets you choose a color range to which you will apply contrast. Objects of the selected color will become lighter, while objects with opposite colors on the color wheel will become darker. This effect can help make flat images pop based on the colors in the image.
- Amount. This slider controls the contrast created between color differences (as opposed to luminance). The stronger the Amount, the more contrast between primary and secondary colors.
- Hue. Slide to choose the target hue for emphasis.
Split Color Warmth
This tool can be used to selectively enhance the cool and warm tones in your image. It allows you to increase color contrast and vibrancy or create creative toning effects. You can separately adjust the Warm colors and Cool colors.
- Warm. Drag this slider to the left to neutralize warm tones such as yellows and reds and to the right to enhance them.
- Cool. Drag this slider to the left to cool down blues, aqua, and cyan and to the right to neutralize and warm them up.
The Color Balance tool is useful for changing the overall mix of colors in an image for general color correction. It can also be used for creative control within different tonal regions of an image.
- Range Selectors. Target the Shadows, Midtones, or Highlights in an image.
- Color Balance Sliders. Adjust the balance of Cyan–Red, Magenta–Green, and Yellow–Blue to emphasize certain colors in each tonal region.
