Ten Ways to Adjust Color in Photoshop Elements 11

Adjust color with Hue/Saturation.

The Hue/Saturation command enables you to adjust the colors in your image based on their hue, saturation, and lightness. Hue is the color in your image. Saturation is the intensity, or richness, of that color. And lightness controls the brightness value.

Use the Hue/Saturation command with the Colorize option to create tinted photos, such as the sepia-colored image shown. You can also make selections in a grayscale image and apply a different tint to each selection. This can be especially fun with portraits. Tinted images can create a vintage or moody feel and can greatly improve mediocre photos.
