Features

✔ Boost colors using LAB, Channel Mixer, Vibrance, Saturation or Old Saturation

There are many techniques you can use to increase your photo's vibrancy. These actions let you try a lot of different techniques in one click. More details about these techniques can be found below.

✔ Vibrancy Masking

Vibrancy masking lets you choose whether you'd like the vibrancy to appear in the neutral or vibrant areas. For example, you can use the "Protect Neutral" actions in landscape photos to prevent rocks from turning colorful.

✔ Protect Skin Tones with Face Detection

A lot of times, photographers would avoid increasing the vibrance altogether simply to protect skin tones. With the "Protect Skin Tones" actions, you can boost vibrancy while protecting skin tones. Face detection can also be used for more accurate results.

✔ One Action Generates All Effects

Simply play one action and all effects will be rendered for you. This saves you a lot of time compared to playing each action one-by-one. You can switch between the 25 snapshots and the results will load immediately - no additional rendering time.

✔ Works with All Languages

Many Photoshop actions will only run if Photoshop is set to English. These actions, however, work with ALL languages. You can use the actions without changing the language setting.

Types of Vibrance

LAB Vibrance

This technique uses the LAB color mode and adds contrast to the chrominance channels. It is useful for protecting the luminance and gives pleasing results.

Channel Mixer

Few people know that you can increase vibrancy with the channel mixer - and with superior results. Unlike the Vibrance adjustment, the channel mixer method treats all colors equally. It is generally suited for professionals who do not like the color science of Adobe's vibrance adjustment.

Vibrance

Photoshop's vibrance was designed for typical landscape and portrait photos - typically darkening blue skies and shifting skin tones towards yellow to hide oversaturation. It protects your photos from oversaturation but this can often lead to a weak effect.

Saturation

Unliike Photoshop's vibrance, saturation is a straightforward way to boost vibrancy. It alters the saturation and lightness values.

Old Saturation

Before Adobe released the vibrance adjustment, the common way to boost vibrancy was with the saturation slider in the Hue/Saturation adjustment. The saturation slider in the Hue/Saturation adjustment is different than the one in the Vibrance adjustment. This old saturation method alters the saturation value but does not affect the lightness.
