The Difference Between Saturation and Vibrance

In this tutorial, I’ll be answering a viewer’s question on the differences between Vibrance and Saturation in Lightroom and Photoshop. I’m going to use a landscape photo that I took to highlight and compare the different effects that these tools can give to colours within your scene. This is a very simple thing to know in Ps and Lr, but it’s essential in effectively boosting or fading the colour in your photography. This will be a great tutorial where we compare Saturation vs Vibrance.
