Yes, very similar concept/function. As you have mentioned before, the Hue/Saturation function in PI also can produce the same effect if the setting is right.

Thank you all once again.

Anon, Glad you found what you were looking for. I have to agree with Danny - it looks like the tone map is the equivalent of Photoshop's curves. And if I'm reading your settings correctly, it seems like mostly what you did is increase the contrast - though it does look more saturated as well, so perhaps I don't completely understand the tone map. In any case, I'm glad we could help. Hope you stick around!

Jeanie

I use this method to enhance the saturation:
Duplicate your layer
On the duplicate layer, increase the saturation quite a bit.
On the same layer, add a little bit of Gaussian Blur.
Now set your layer blend mode to COLOR, and adjust the OPACITY slider to your liking.
I find that this works pretty well, but I prefer less saturation in the reds, so I go back and decrease the saturation in just the reds, until I like it.

Hi Vikki,

Love your suggestion. I have a bunch of wedding pictures that I have been fooling around with. It was a rather over cast day and sheer luck... the sun came out. I worked with saturation and with levels adjustment - but what you said about the red was soooo right! Another handy tip! I've attached a before and after of a wedding shot in which I used your technique.

Boy this is fun!

Lisa,
Much more vibrant color!
Glad you like it. I love these simple, but powerful ones. I only have a few actions that I use regularly, and this is one of them.
Thanks,
Vikki

Thanks Vikki,

I appreciate the tip! I realized afterwards that I posted the saturation example without the red saturation being adjusted. It looks much better toned down.

Still in all, a great trick to use when you have an outdoor scene and want to really "kick it up a notch"!

Thanks!
Lisa

Viki,

Thank you for the tips. I will give it a try.
I am pretty new to all these software and terminlogies, so I think I will need to look up what 'Layer' is, but am appreciated your tips.

I will certianly stick around to learn more about some fo the technique members have used and suggested.

Best regards,
