Brush the Saturation adjustment on an image
You use the Saturation Quick Brush adjustment to modify the saturation of the colors in a specific area of an image.
Note: You can also apply a Saturation adjustment by brushing the Enhance adjustment on an image. However, brushing the Enhance adjustment on an image applies the Contrast, Definition, Saturation, Vibrancy, and Tint parameter settings. You use the Quick Brush equivalents when you need to apply each of these adjustments in different ways to different parts of the photo. For more information about the Enhance adjustment, see Adjust contrast, clarity, and saturation.
