Why Brightness Drops When You Cut Saturation? – HSB vs HSL

2 min read

Every time you decrease the Saturation with the Hue/Saturation adjustment in Photoshop, the "Brightness" value decreases. In this lesson, we will understand why that happens and explore the root of the cause by learning the differences between HSL and HSB color models. This tutorial will cover almost everything you need to know about how the color models work and how saturation, lightness, and brightness work in conjunction with each other.

I hope this video helps you. Thank you so much for watching 🙂
