Photoshop Tutorial: How to Color Pop in Photoshop

Color pop anyone? If you are looking for more vibrant colors in your photos, Photoshop can help you achieve that look. Using both channel mixer adjustment layers and layer masks, you are in full control of what parts of your image get that extra color pop. This effect can be achieved manually or using Photoshop actions, like the MCP Finger-paint color pop Photoshop actions in the Quickie Collection or with Color Burst in the Complete Workflow set, which is a Photoshop workflow for photographers.
