4. Punch up the color in your image using the Hue/Saturation adjustment layer.

As with Saturation adjustment in Camera Raw, you can move the Saturation slider to the right to increase the amount of color in your image. Figure 4-11 shows the adjusted image; the Layers palette shows adjustment layers created for Levels, Curves, and Hue/Saturation.

Consistently following the same steps — turning them into a familiar workflow — as you make overall adjustments to images in Photoshop can vastly increase your efficiency — especially when you make those corrections in separate layers. Down the road, you can go in and change individual adjustments as needed instead of having to redo the entire image.

When you're making overall adjustments to your image, less is more. For many images, slight adjustments do the trick. Overdoing it can make your photos look fake and unrealistic.
