How to adjust the color of water

Hey guys!

Today, I’m so excited to show you how to adjust the color of water using Lightroom CC (you can download the app on your mobile, and it’s free). So, if you’re interested knowing how to change brown water color into blue especially in your beach photos keep on reading!


You should take in consideration the Lightroom HSL (Hue/Saturation/Luminance) panel:


Hue sliders affect the purity of individual colors in your photo. For instance, moving the blue Hue slider to the left shifts all blues in the image toward aqua, and sliding it to the right shifts them towards purple. In this photo for example moving the green Hue slider to the right shifts all greens in the image toward aqua.

Saturation sliders affect the intensity of individual colors in your photo. A saturated color is vivid, and desaturated colors appear faded. Too much saturation looks hokey and obliterates detail, so resist the urge to oversaturate.

Luminance sliders affect the lightness or darkness of individual colors in your photo. These sliders can be particularly useful if you want to enhance sunrays or dappled light.


It’s important to remember that even though each slider in the HSL Panel represents a single color, they are still making global (whole image) adjustments. If you move a blue slider, it affects everything blue in your shot.

That’s it for today. Don’t forget to give this post a like and to follow my blog (by email).
