The Saturation tool tones an image by changing the saturation and contrast of neighboring pixels. The tool works in two modes: in Saturate mode colors become more saturated, in Desaturate mode colors become less saturated. To quickly access this tool and switch between the Lighten, Darken, and Saturation tools press L.
|Saturate Mode||Desaturate Mode|
The tool's parameters will be shown in a floating box over an image (by right-clicking the mouse) and also in the Settings Panel.
To change a parameter, enter a numerical value in the parameter's field and press Enter (Mac: Return) or adjust the slider.

To change saturation in a straight line, pick a starting point by left-clicking the mouse, then, while pressing Shift, move the cursor to the desired end point and release Shift. If Shift is not released, then a new line will be drawn to each point where the mouse is clicked.
