    Essential Photoshop Curves Techniques: 04 The amazing S-curve

    Made by dragging one point upwards in the highlights and a second down in the shadows (and sometimes with a third to anchor the midtones) the S-shaped curve is a classic tonal tweak for boosting contrast and colour saturation.

    The more pronounced the S-shape, the more the image will pop.

    If you want to leave colour saturation unchanged, change the Blend Mode of the Curves Adjustment layer to Luminosity.
