• Matching colors in a scene creates cohesion within the frame; matching the red in lipstick to red in wallpaper, blue in eyes to the sky, etc. Basically simplifies an image by removing extraneous colors; a simplified color palette is a “tighter” feeling photograph.             

  • This varies from image to image, but using Selective Color, Hue/Saturation and Curves adjustment layers will get the majority of the work done. Changing the blending mode to “Color” for any of these will help as well.
