Control Your Color Saturation in GIMP
These tutorials use the free photo-editing program GIMP. I am not being paid to endorse GIMP--I just really like it!
This tutorial will show you how to adjust the color saturation of a photo in GIMP. This how-to guide will show you how to take a photo from this:
or even to this (a bit too much saturation for my tastes though!):
Step 1: Open the photo in GIMP and click "Hue-Saturation" under the "Colors" heading.
Step 2: Slide the saturation slider to the left to decrease saturation, if desired.
Step 3: Slide the saturation slider to the right to increase saturation, if desired.
Step 4: Save once you have the desired saturation level. Done!
