      Effect:Saturation
      Category:Color Filter
      Speed:Fast

      Description: The Saturation Effect increases or decreases the intensity of color of Color 1 and/or Color 2.

       
      Options: The Saturation Effect has the following Options Pane:

      Saturation:This value controls the amount of Saturation applied to the color. A value of 1.0 does not change the Saturation at all. Values lower than 1.0 will decrease the saturation (similar to the Desaturate Effect). Values higher than 1.0 will increase the Saturation.
      Affect Color 1:When set to a Green Check Mark, the selected channels of Color 1 are changed based on the Saturation value. If set to a Red X, Color 1 is unchanged.
      Affect Color 2:When set to a Green Check Mark, the selected channels of Color 2 are changed based on the Saturation value. If set to a Red X, Color 2 is unchanged.
      Replace Red:When set to a Green Check Mark, the Red Channel of the selected Colors is changed based on the Saturation value. If set to a Red X, the Red Channel is unchanged.
      Replace Green:When set to a Green Check Mark, the Green Channel of the selected Colors is changed based on the Saturation value. If set to a Red X, the Green Channel is unchanged.
      Replace Blue:When set to a Green Check Mark, the Blue Channel of the selected Colors is changed based on the Saturation value. If set to a Red X, the Blue Channel is unchanged.

      Example: To show the Saturation Effect we will take our Arches National Park image and load it into Slot 1 using the Texture Effect. In Slot 2 we have our Saturation Effect with default values.

      The image below shows our untouched Arches photo:

      In the next image, we have set the Saturation value to .5 which lowers the saturation of the image by half:

      In the next image, we have set the Saturation value to 1.5 which raises the saturation of the image by half:

      Next we have set the Saturation value to 5.0 which is an extreme raise of the saturation:

      Finally, we have the Saturation value set to the maximum value of 10.0:
