Enhancing one color only in a picture- how to?

Recommended Posts

Good greetings Jeff54.

To adjust the one colour channel, you have Curves and Levels at your disposal (http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/en/Curves.html, http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/en/Levels.html, respectively).

If, however, you want to change, say, only the red coloured pixels (as opposed to the red channel on the whole image), you can select every red pixel by the Magic Wand - with the Global flood mode - to select all similar pixels within the tolerance range.

You can read more on the latter option here: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/en/MagicWand.html

Do say if either is what you're looking for.

the tips work great!!!! I first lasso'd the color I wanted to enhance and then used level, curve, hue/saturation which gave me a rough but great improvement. I will continue to refine my result and deeply appreciate your help. Thanks!!!!!
