8. Adjusting Images (Hue/Saturation)



Using Hue/Saturation we can modify the hue, saturations and lightness of an image or text layer.

Open the index.psd file located in template/psd (Note: if the opened file has the slices visible just press Ctrl+H to hide them):

In our example we will adjust the colors of the "main img" layer creating the following effect:


First of all select the "main img" layer. Now select Hue/Saturation from the menu. Go to Image -> Adjustments -> Hue/Saturation or simply press Ctrl+U.

The Hue/Saturation window will be opened and you must check the "Colorize" option (note: in this example the foreground color is set to Black so the image will have a red hue after checking "Colorize"). The "Colorize" options assumes that you apply hue to a grayscale image.

After selecting "Colorize" change the Hue value to make the image blue. Adjust the Saturation & Lightness until you reach the desired effect.
