- Select the paper you want to adjust. In the color tab, click on Black & White to take away all color.
- Click on Color Wash. For this image, I selected the blue from my nephew’s shirt by sampling from the screen. Then adjusted both the saturation and the intensity until I achieved the color I wanted.
- Select the paper you want to adjust. In the color tab, click on Adjust Hue.
- Using the saturation slider, move it to the left. This will give you the same color patterns, but at a different level of color. In this case, it took on more of the colors of nature going on behind my nephew. Move the slider in the other direction and you can achieve those off-air Techni-color stripes the networks used to run when you got up too early on Saturday morning.
- Select the paper you want to adjust. In the color tab, click on Color Balance.
- Move those sliders around! You can get all kinds of color going on here. More red, more yellow, more green...it will change the balance across the whole image and give your page a whole new look. In my image, I decided to let the blues take over, reds become more purple, greens trend toward being more blue-green.
