Default Bonus Tip #3: Color Variations

What if your colors are still off, especially bright pinks and reds. What can you do?

I have no magic answer for this one. Some colors are just trickier to capture than others. You should also keep in mind that what you see on your screen is not necessarily what someone else sees on his or her screen due to different monitors and color settings. That said, you can attempt to get your colors to look more "true" (on your monitor, at least) using the Color Variations option. Go to Enhance, then Adjust Color, then Color Variations.

On the window that opens, you'll see your original photograph and then eight different variations (more and less in red, blue, and green, plus lighten and darken). You can play around with these to try to fix your original. Note the "amount" slide in the lower left corner. To make fine adjustments, move that slide to the far left.
