Bold Looks in Just a Few Minutes!
More images are taken now than ever before and when you need yours to stand out from the crowd, coloring is a great place to start! We show you how to create looks that take advantage of the naturally-occurring colors in a photo by enhancing them and making slight shifts in hue. This allows you to create beautiful, eye-catching palettes that are equal parts bright and bold.

Brighten Images, Lift Shadows
Most images can benefit from some level of general brightening or just lifting up the shadows. We show you how to brighten any photo in Lightroom and Photoshop using precise, non-destructive tools. Learn how to target just the shadows to recover important details that were lost, or brighten a specific part of an image to draw more attention to the things that matter most.
Enhance the Colors in Your Photos
Warm Skin Tones
Skin is one of the most beautiful things to photograph, but one of the most delicate things to handle in the editing process. We show you how to enhance the colors in an image without damaging the natural oranges and reds in skin so that your subjects look great and the colors jump of the screen.
Tone Curves in Lightroom
Learn all about the most powerful coloring tool in Lightroom Classic: the Tone Curve! From targeting the highlights and shadows of a photo to targeting specific colors and color ranges, this amazing feature can help you dial in the perfect look with professional results.
Adjustment Layers in Photoshop
When it comes to general photo editing in Photoshop, Adjustment Layers should be your go-to tools. Allowing everything from exposure adjustments to detailed coloring, they can be combined and mixed in ways that can create beautiful, unique looks. And best of all, they’re entirely non-destructive, meaning you can get back to your original, unedited image in a snap.
The brightness and exposure in a photo has a lot to do with how the colors turn out. If an image is underexposed, the colors will look muted and desaturated. If an image is overexposed, the colors will look a little too intense. We show you how to balance exposure and then dial in the coloring for a balanced and powerful final image.
Vibrance & Saturation
You might have noticed that some photo editing programs offer two different tools that give you control over the intensity of colors: saturation and vibrance. Learn the differences between saturation and vibrance and when to use each when you want colors that look both amazing and natural.
