In today’s lesson, I will teach you how to detect and avoid over saturation in your color images. Saturation is like salt, it’s necessary for colors to pop, but too much of it or used in the wrong place and you can ruin your images rather quickly.

We are going to talk about a new technique I developed that uses the Vibrance Adjustment layer and the Difference Blend Mode. With this technique, you can assess your colors and use it to modify your saturation PERFECTLY! Strap yourselves in, you are in for a treat!
