Please could you tell me the difference between Saturation on the Adjust tab in the Image editor and the Selective Color Filter. I have read the Help on the Selective Color Filter but I can't find any Help on Saturation on the Adjust tab. What does the saturation number on the Adjust tab represent - a percentage, a number up to 255, or what? When would you use one rather than the other?

Thanks.

The numbers in the Adjust Tab Saturation boxes are normal, and set to zero.
The numbers you would type in represent the change (increase/decreas) by %
Therefore, a -100 would remove all the color, and a plus number would increase the saturation.

The sel color tab is used to change one shade to a different shade by adding or subtracting color from each other.
It is very complicated and only two people understand it; Mike, and Albert Einstein.
I have changed a blue blouse on a girl to a red blouse, but that was when I was a lot younger, and Albert was still with us.

Did something similar once.  Fortunately, my subject noticed in the nick of time that my clumsy editing had somehow left the blouse inside-out.  I hasten to add that this oversight was partially attributable to the poor lighting in my motorized darkroom ('57 Plymouth Belvedere, if I recall).

It's so long ago I cannot fully remember changing a blouse, I do remember having a lot of trouble with the buttons, still have trouble with buttons but they are now on my shirts. Smiley

Jeff and Owen,
You both need to do a little research if you are going to explore the inside of a 57 Plymouth.
See I found out that girls' blouses have the buttons reversed, on the opposite side.
Her mother would never notice.
Early on, I didn't know about the reversed buttons, and I had to use the "mirror" function in Qimage to make it look right when we came home from a "picnic" with pictures.
You guys have so much to learn about Qimage and its uses.

Yes, but the blouse I edited was a buttonless pullover.  If you pull-processed from bottom to top, it was much faster & easier to reverse than a blouse with buttons, especially since dodging & burning by hand was all we had available in those days.  However, the inside seams showing on the outside were a dead giveaway.  In the midst of a major brain cramp, tried the "mirror" function.  No joy.  Had no choice but to go back into the darkroom.  Got it done and met the midnight deadline, too.
