  • High Dynamic Look
  • Image Sharpening
  • Color Overlaying
  • Toning Up and Toning Down Colors

"Colorizing with hue adjustment

"For a quick and dirty colorization of images, hue adjustment is your best friend. However, the danger with using hue adjustment is that you don't have much control over your tones compared to when you were using color curves.
