Frequently Asked Questions

How to remove photo saturation?

To remove photo saturation and make the colors appear more muted or grayscale, you can do so using any image saturation editor, including Luminar Neo. The Color Tool helps you control the saturation and vibrance of an image. You can also use the Black and White Conversion button to desaturate your picture of all colors instantly.

How to increase the color intensity of an image?

Easily adjust the color intensity in Luminar Neo. You can find Saturation and Vibrance sliders in the Color Tool or enhance a dozen of adjustments automatically in just one slide of the Enhance AI tool.

Does image saturation affect the file size and image quality?

Yes, image saturation can affect both the file size and image quality. When you increase an image's saturation, the image's color data also increases. Higher saturation means more color information needs to be stored in the file, leading to a larger file size. Also, excessive saturation can lead to a loss of image quality. If saturation is pushed too far, it can result in color clipping, where the colors become so intense that they exceed the gamut that the image format can represent. To strike a balance between image quality and saturation, it's crucial to use editing tools that allow for precise control over saturation levels. Use Luminar Neo to have exact control over saturation.

What is the difference between saturation and vibrance?

Saturation and vibrance are both terms related to the intensity of colors in an image, but they represent slightly different concepts in the context of image editing. Saturation affects all colors uniformly, while vibrance targets the less saturated colors, providing a more subtle and controlled enhancement to the overall image without causing extreme color shifts.
