Make Colors Pop With Windows Live Photo Gallery

There should be an image here!One of the things I love about Windows Live Photo Gallery (besides that fact that its free) is that I can use it to really make the colors in my photos pop. If you have a favorite photo but the colors are a little drab, you can use Windows Live Photo Gallery to adjust the colors so that they really stand out.

To make your colors pop in Windows Live Photo Gallery:

  1. Open Windows Live Photo Gallery and then open one of your favorite photos.
  2. Within Windows Live Photo Gallery, click Fix on the top menu bar.
  3. Click Adjust Color and do the following:
    • Drag the Saturation slide to the right.
    • Drag the Shadows slider to the right.
    • Drag the Contrast slider to the right.
    • Drag the Brightness slider slightly to the left.

That’s all there is to it! The color in your photo should now look more vibrant.
